Clear Comfortable Classic

I have been using Sony MDR-7506. It seems that the sound of AKG K-271 MKII slightly outperforms my previous choice, however both models are great. AKG K-271 MKII has higher durability and its easier to replace cable + it has additional ears. It also seems more comfortable, though MDR -7506 is also good.

I have closely studied the issue, and it seems that there is no need to go for more expensive models, AKG K-271 MKII has all the advantages, perfect choice, imho. I would also recommend Sony MDR-7506 if you want to save money. Both models are classic and widely used, one should not be dissapointed.

Great for monitoring

I use the AKG K-271 MKII headphones with my Yamaha THR10 amp while playing quitar at home for not to disturb my family. For this kind of use the headphones are excellent. As the headphones have basicly a flat eq curve from low frequencies to the high treble, they are very suitable for monitoring ? for which I used them also in my past occupation in radio some time ago. Actually I feel that with these headphone I can distinguish the effect of minor amp adjustments more precisely than from the loudspeaker of the small amp itself.

If you are looking to buy them for hifi use, outside of classical music you may be disappointed to the non-amplified base, but in classical music you would value the preciseness of these headphones.

The are so comfortable on your head that one easily forgets any recommendation for not to listen with headphones on for more that an hour a day, one simply forgets that the headphones are there. The cord length was enough, though to increase freedom of movement I also purchased an extension cord.

The package had also replacement ear pads, so I expect to be using these for a long time.

Definitely a good purchase for a monitoring purpose.

Precise sound for studio environment

AKG is well known for it´s studio quality products including microphones, headphones etc. And there is a good reason for that.
AKG K-271 MKII continues the line of AKG quality headphones. These are relatively light weight headphones and they are comfortable to wear. Even after use of longer periods of time. Sound is clear and well balanced. Typical to AKG headphones, there is no low end boost so fashionable nowadays. In studio this is good, but I can´t recommend these for people who are looking for a “phat bass” sound while listening to music from a portable player etc. For studio work these are great. That´s where these headphones really shine.
