    AKG 121 Studio headphones - inner foam material disintegrating

    Hi, I have a pair of ‘AKG 121 Studio’ headphones. The inner circle of thin foam/material is disintegrating and shedding but the headphones are now discontinued and I don’t think this replacement foam or earcups are available from the manufacturers and authorised distributors. Ideally would just...

    My thoughts on the K702 (rant warning)

    Hi! So recently I bought a used K702 in a very good condition. TL;DR: Did not like the sound, sold them 2 days later. The thing is, they had so much upper midrange, all vocals sounded extremely "screamy" and aggressive and electric guitar sound was so freaking sharp and ear-piercing. Bass was...

I need a bit of help on deciding which headphones I should buy, an AKG K701 or ATH-A900. Why these headphones? I found both of these headphones on sale in the used market and I've grown...

    AKG 361 vs AKG mk553?

    I've been using the SHP9500 for a few years now and am looking for a closed-back headphone. I want a neutral/bright headphone and I'm wondering how these two compare. The 553 is much older but I read it has a lot better soundstage than the 361 which I like. I guess I'm asking if it's worth the...

    AKG K-52

    Our K52 headphones deliver authoritative, extended low-frequency response that gives definition to kick drums and bass guitars. At the same time, the detail yet precisely balanced high-frequency response reveals the nuance in vocals, guitars and acoustic instruments. Our generous 40mm drivers...

    Outside phones : K275 x K271 x K371 ??? (advices)

    AKGs are pretty and in my country those 3 are at the same price level. Which one would you recommend mostly for street walking and commuting (ocasionally some home enjoyment as well). Thanks.

    Looking for a new cans (1st post)

    Hi, this is my 1st post on head-fi, I am looking for cans that I can buy sub 400 USD. I am trying to find an upgrade/ replacement of AKG K550 which I am using for casual listening and mixing song. I tried HD600 and HD650, but the soundstage is to narrow to use for mix song. Can I get some...

    Could use some IEM advice!!

    Lately for whatever reason I've become interested in IEMs. Probably because I'm happy with my full-sized setup and this is my favorite hobby so I need to keep myself entertained lol! Hopefully, I don't just have upgrade-itis here... Anyway, for headphones I own Focal Clear (primary open back)...

    Stuck at AKG K553 MKII for years where to go for an upgrade?

    So for the past several years I've been using the AKG K553 headphones. Form what I understand these have a unusually wide sound stage for being closed. I know these are a oldish design going back a number of years. I think like over 9 year old design now? I've bought a few of them thought...

    Closed backs up to ~100 €/$

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to hear some opinions about which closed back would be a good pick, around the 100 €/$ mark. I’m planning on getting a Fiio btr3k to serve as an amp/dac (in case some new suggestions required an amp to power). From what I’ve seen so far, it’s between: ATH-M40x...

    Not satisfied with the Akg k240 need help finding replacements

    I bought a pair of AKG K240 like 2 years ago and I'm not satisfied with the sound, I regret investing in the whole open back thing. I always used cheap closed back headphones so I thought open back weren't going to be such a problem for me, but I was wrong. I can't focus on the music and every...

    Help me choose one among a sea of AKG headphones

    Purpose: Primarily will be used to monitor myself while recording lectures. So, probably open back is not the best idea, since it leaks sound. Also, will be used to listen to classicals, jazz and acoustics. A decent soundstage is appreciated. Options: AKG K240 Studio MK II - $107 AKG K361 -...

    Let me explain... All my headphones are wired, and I want to buy now a nice pair of wireless/Bluetooth ones. I have the Sennheiser Momentum 2 over-ear wired version but I saw the Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless (over-ear) for a good price, I think (200 Euros). So, my question... Since I...

    AKG K340

    These vintage hybrid headphones are among the best I have ever listened to. Very hard to feed, at 400 Ohm (measured, they are about 350 Ohm). Mine were tweaked with new pads, new headband, new elastics and jack plugs on each side for balanced use.

    I recently bit the bullet on this set of headphones that I've been wanting to get to know for a long time. I found a great deal on a set missing badges... after talking to the seller, they actually had badges and sent me 2 left badges to glue on if I wanted to. A little suspect, but ok. I...
