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.

Bought these a few years ago and still using them. Have done alot of demoing and a few albums and there holding up to studio life. Automatic shut off is handy when left in the recording room. Will be using them for the forseeable future

Great for recordings but also for listening at home

I bought them for their neutral sound and I'm very satisfied with them. When you have a small head you may need to find the right position for the earphones because otherwise the signal stops because of the auto-shut-off. This is a feature I don't really need but apart from that they fit well and the sound is just what I had been looking for

The Best Headphones I Ever Used

I recommend these headphones for anyone looking for a pair of good quality headphones for uses in the studio. The sound quality is far superior than what i expected from headphones this price. There is no loss of sound in the high range and the bass is very clear. They are very good in the studio and cut out outside sound well especially at high notes

Well balanced for (home)recording

I bought the AKG K-271 MKII on 11th July 2012. Main application area for me is the use as monitor for my (home)recording. It has a well balanced sound. No disturbing amplification of bass, mid or heights.

Furthermore I sometimes play guitar with my Marshall JMD:1 50 Head via DI Out in my Focusrite Scarlett 4i2 and the sound is good. Good enough for playing many hours without any problems.

I love the auto-shut-off feature and it is helpful, that the cable has its own jack to the headphone. If the cable is damaged you only need to buy a new cable. That´s a clever solution.

All in all the AKG K-271 MKII gets five stars from me. Only the heat after long wearing the headphone leads to a minus of one star for comfort, but that does not touch the total result.
