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

These AKG K-271 MKII are my second headphones of this brand. The other I using just to listening music, but i needed something more professional. I made a little research and than I choose this particular product. I making records in my home studio and the quality of the monitors is very important. When I tried AKG K 271 MKII for very first time I felt them pretty comfortable on my head. They are big and fit good. I love the cable. You may plugging and unplugging whenever you want, and change it with another. It is interesting how they work only on the head. When you removed them they doesn't work. It is very cool safety system. And in the end , the sound you hear from AKG K-271 MKII is great.

Good sound, not so good material...

I am a drummer and i bought these to use as monitor headphones when recording in studio and use them for mixing especially for the effects (reverb etc). Right out of the box, the plastic material and ear pads look a bit poor quality at first, but the extra telephone type cable and the golden plated screw-head jack extension is pretty cool. It doesn't fit tight on the head, it's pretty loose, so it's a bit uncomfortable when playing drums; but it won't be a problem for a guitar player, a pianist or a singer. It's also very poor at sound isolation. This becomes a trouble for especially drummers, you hear all the acoustic sound when playing. Again, i don't think it will be a problem for other musicians. The sound quality is very good. Very detailed, clear and crisp highs & mids, and stunning performance at lower frequencies. These babies give you lowest end your ears are able to hear, without distortion... The impedance is so low that it blows your head with the volume and still no (or very little) distortion. Very good choice for vocals, wind instruments, guitars, keyboards etc; drummers better look somewhere else though...

This studio headphones are not for nothing the currently most popular studio headphones at Thomann .
The sound is very natural, I honestly heard still nowhere (Hi -fi system from Yamaha, various in-ears , and various on-ears ) my favorite music (Dream Theater) better.
Very beautiful are the 2 different long cables , both are very well made and are just made because of the length to suit your application .
What when I listen to music a bit bothers me is the auto-shut-off feature. It is made?for that you no longer hear anything as soon as the headphones are removed so that nothing gets into the microphones in the studio. But if you moved too strongly the head, the tone turns off what I already consider irritating, this system should AKG in my opinoin over think again .
I have these headphones recently ordered for the second time , because he is just great for this price.
The reason is not that he does not work anymore , but that I stumbled with the AKG K -271 MKII in my hands and have caught me reflexively, what has the headphones not well done .
He still works but has in my opinion a little more metallic sound and the left ear has always falls out from the holder.
By the way i can wear them about 5 hours, so they´re very comfortable
You see I am very happy with the headphones. If he have him in your shortlist , you should buy him. If not put the AKG K -271 MKII in there ;).
