Great for monitoring

19.07.2015
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.

Incredible headphones

10.04.2017
Got these for work after getting a pair of AKG K-240 Studios for at home and loving them. I wanted a closed version for work because of the noiser environment.

The sound exactly what I've come to expect from AKG, absolutely incredible. I've tested these with a good mix of heavy music and some classic rock. Heavy down tuned guitars still sound as clear as they should and dont get muddy, and the highs are crisp and not tinny.

Even without music playing they are very isolating, I can have my music's volume very low and still not hear any background noise in the office.

They're equally light and comfortable as the K240 Studio set, though they are a little bit tighter, probalby because they are newer, and not to the point of being uncomfortable.

I personally wont be using the coiled cable but its nice to have as you could definitely wear these while out and about without worrying about having to ha ve the volume too loud to drown out noise. I'm undecided about the velvet pads but nice to have the option.

The mute when you take them off is also very cool, not 100% sure what I might need it for, but its very cool.
