Depends what you want.
Irish Dar, 18.11.2020
These headphones are very good.
They have a neutral sound and make very decent monitors.
They plastic is light but durable and not cheap feeling. I've had headphones from other expensive brands with much more substantial plastics that broke over time. I'm pretty sure I could play football with these and not worry about them breaking (you can twist them into a ball).
The drivers aren't overly powerful so sound levels can be lower than some other headphone options and people will know what your listening to as they dont keep in all the sound. But that being said, They are loud enough for purpose, and dont leak as much as some other options from AKG. I know I will have these a very long time.
Pros
Durable, great sound. (neutral) Great for studio/home.
Cons
People will hear to a degree what you hear (so prob not best for public transport).

Awesome sound at this price point
Honza Z, 29.12.2020
I am an owner of AKG K702 and previous owner of Shure SRH 840. Switched to AKG K702 ater my Shures broke and was blown away by the sound of K702s (very flat response, fantastic soundscape, fantastic soundscape, great for learning new stuff by ear). However, the K702s are open back, and I needed a closed-back alternative for several reasons. K271s were a good choice -- share the overall sound of the K702s, with a slightly stronger bass response, slightly harsher upper mids, slightly worse soundscape imho, but hey, for the price, they are excellent.

The build quality is OK, just feels somewhat cheap compared to the K702s -- the cables ale less flexible and the plastics and ear pads look cheap somehow. But they are very comfy to wear and lightweight, too -- unlike the SRH 840s, which very on the heavy side, and if I wore them for a longer time, my head was overheating. :) OTOH, the 840s were blocking the outside noise a tad better.

Really clean and detailed sound
Violet Deer, 26.05.2019
I bought them for my home recording studio mainly to be used for mixing purposes and it was good decision.

They are isolating all noises around really well, I'm able to listen to music on low volume and I can still hear everything clearly.
At the same time they still breathe which makes them one of the most comfortable headphones in that price range, their size is good and they fit perfectly on ears, default pads work nice (additional velvet pads are included for those who need something with softer touch).

I use them with coiled cable (it's also included) which allows me to keep my workplace out of unneeded additional cables lying around.

Overall quality is good - they are made out of durable materials (unintentionally dropped them & pulled the cable few times and I can say that it's impossible to destroy them during normal work)

If you are looking for good studio headphones - you are in the right place.

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.
