At the Realit t constructed

11.03.2015
The sound of the headphones is fine for the price segment and above all for the construction method. However, I do not keep up with the description of the sound for a long time, because what are the best headphones in the world if you can only use them briefly before the anger starts?

My first thought when unpacking was ... Bingo ... a non-angled connector. With headphones, which were designed for mobile use and therefore hang on devices, which sometimes synonymous in (pants) pockets, I find a 4 centimeter long connector somehow not very clever. Leakage, cable breakage or even loose contact at the socket of the device.

Whether and how far my first thought is justified, however, I could not experience in practice. Because...

The remote control is relatively large and if you belong to the people who carry their headscords under the clothes, because you do not feel like hanging around anywhere, I would recommend these headphones approximately as an acid bath at 38 degrees in the shade.

Scarf, sweater ... whatever ... the remote control gets tangled in the clothes and the headphones are pulled out of the ear. This is annoying and would happen less frequently with a smaller, somewhat rounded form, but not yet my point of criticism.

The white silicone covers, which should provide a more comfortable wearing comfort, are incredibly loose on the headphones. This in combination with the above problem with the remote control provides the following:
You will look regularly on the floor and look for exactly this silicone cover.

But also when untangling the cables from the transport bag, you will always have to look for the silicone parts again until ... you can not find the parts again. Then rest. In the truest sense of the word, because without the headphones (also again because of the remote control) just out of the ears.

It is then probably necessary to organize spare parts. Best of all, a candy jar full. Only stupid, if the manufacturer does not respond to mails.


I've had a lot of products from AKG over the course of my life and all of them have kept it despite their daily use, but these headphones are completely constructed and not worth 30, - EUR. Hands off!

Good earbuds at moderate price

Stephan1543, 17.08.2014
- The heights are very beautifully clear
- Bass is available and balanced (it is recommended to use the included ear cushions)
- The remote works a bit cheap, but does what it should - also with Android 4.4 (Nexus4)
- They sit very well in my ear

(Sennheiser MX375), which I had before - which were synonymous somewhat cheaper. The sound was much better (more transparent, clearer, fuller and louder!).

Conclusion: For earbuds of this price class quite in order. With the right in-ears they can not keep up in the bass range, but you can still hear ambient noise, which is a great advantage in road traffic;)

Supplement 27.03.2016: The cables are however to me "cheap". They are relatively thin, twisted and tangled. What happened before me is also: The covering of the cable on the right handset is torn - now the copper insulation looks out and they will probably not live longer ...
