Unjustly in the crowd - TOP KOPFH RER fr`st studio

Metaphor, 12.04.2016
I used the AKG K271 for years to record and listen to my mixdowns. He also mastered this task with flying colors. However, the headphone sounds very "pappig", which can spoil the fun of the music a bit. Assessment of effect allocation and depth staggering in the mix was not a problem, but the evaluation of basses and trebles was rather difficult. Also in the beats build over the headphones (in the home studio you can not always make loud music), the AKG no mood.

So I looked around for alternatives, especially for productions with the MPC Renaissance. In tests, the AKAI MPC headphones got very good reviews, which is why I decided for them.

Unfortunately, these had in the meantime a technical defect and had to be dispatched for the repair. I was informed back that the repair was not possible, but there was also no first set, since AKAI the production had stopped.

By chance, I noticed during the online research that the M-Audio HDH-50 are the same as the MPC headphones.

So, right away! And what can I say: Except for the black color (which I like even better than the silver version of the MPC Headphones!) And the packaging it is really the exact same headphones. Even the supplied cables are identical.

To the headphone itself:

Processing:

Absolutely high-quality and robust processing, due to the use of metal but very hard but also with a longer wearing time I could not notice any disturbing pressures or similar on the head. It is nice that the cables can be connected to both the left and the right side by means of a screw mechanism. In the case of a cable defect, the entire headphone does not need to be replaced - Class!

Sound:

Madness! For me, everything is right here. In the case of AKG K271 MKII, the depth staggering in the mix and the effect part can also be assessed very well. In contrast to the AKG, however, basses are represented, but they are not overburdened, as is the case with many other representatives. Rather, they are beautifully crisp! The heights are also well represented and do not tend to hiss, as is the case, for example, with the Audio-Technica ATH M50x, which I had also comparatively there. The sound insulation is exemplary, so that the headphone is also suitable for recording.

Conclusion:

An absolutely round package for a very reasonable price for the areas:

- Recording
- Beat production
- Listen to mixdowns
- music enjoyment in itself, when the music properly pro-
(Bad mixes or "plattgemasterte" productions covers the headphone mercilessly)

RECOMMENDED !!!

Great sound and robustness

10.06.2016
This is my first headphones of a certain quality and the truth is that I am impressed by the great sound they reproduce, very balanced, with predominance of bass but without abuse. I use them both to listen to music and to play the guitar and in both aspects works wonderfully. You can connect to both the left and right handset, as required.
The construction is very robust with resistant materials and quality. They are very comfortable and do not fatigan.La only glue that I put is that the cable is a little shorter in length, a meter more would not have been more.
In short, quality construction and great sound
