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.

For judging my sound on location, I use this headphone in addition to Beyerdynamic DT770. The AKG K-271 MKII does not sound "pleasant" but it will give you the tiniest details of what your microphones hear, especially transient information.

The transient detail density also makes it very useful for narrators and voice-overs, as they will immediately hear their own lip smacks and saliva noises, resulting in a much better behaviour of the mouth.

I love the automatic switch in the headband mechanism. Some artists have the tendency to take off their headphones near a microphone and the switch will avoid feedback ruining anything in the chain. The only problem is with hipsters who want to hold the headphone in their hand with one speaker to an ear. Or when they want to protect their valuable hair dress and keep the headband in their neck. In these cases no sound will come out of it. Much to my enjoyment, as I despise behaviour with an "attitude". Let's just get the work done and put it on your head properly! This headphone is very good for that.

In comparison to the Beyerdynamic DT770, I should say that the 770 has a much more easy to listen to sound with fewer detail accentuation. So in case I need to reassure an uncertain musician when they want to hear back their playing (violinists especially), I prefer to hand them the DT770. The AKG K-271 MKII would be a bit too honest in such a situation. Also: the DT770 is better suitable to judge low frequency rumbling when you do a location recording. It's overblowing the lows, but that can be helpful if you want to find a good setting for your HPF.

All in all I think the AKG K-271 MKII and the Beyerdynamic DT770 make a very good addition to each other, in both studio and location recording.

I use these headphones now for about 5 months. I have previously used the K301 AKG . There are worlds between these two thomann headphones. On the one hand it is closed which means you can hear outside the headphones very little (which applications for Studio is very important ) and if you wear the headphones you can hear . By the sound around very little , if anything, more

The sound - thomann This is not a hi-fi headphones what is here does not attempt to fine the sound through internal EQ changes , but in this headphones was trying to produce the most natural and uncolored sound. What is it to be possible very important in the recording. In this headphones this strength was very good thomann implemented especially in a low price range .

Comfort - There are two sets of ear pads while , once the velor upholstery and even the leather upholstery. With both you have a comfortable feeling when you wearing it and even after hours. No press or pressure points . Processing - The processing is thomann very robust, which is also a huge large bonus that you can replace the cable . Again, there are two here . A rigid cable with 5m and a coiled cord with 3m ( which is optimal in the Live Mixer) . If you damage the cable once it is changed to 10 seconds.

What thomann I noticed is negative - The Auto -switch to a "hot " headphones in the studio to avoid , is not quite as reliable. If you are not 100 % has the headphones no sound comes out . For people with small heads a problem. But otherwise, not to remember.
Would I buy it again? thomann Yes and I highly recommend him if you are not willing to spend the triple .

Great cans for the price

If you want some quite linear closed headphones for not too much money, look no further.

I use them for recording (they isolate the direct amp sound very well) and as mixing reference together with studio monitors and another pair of headphones.

They are very comfortable and well built (I've had them for 7 years and I only had to change the pads).

They come with 2 cables (coiled and straight) which plug into the headphones via mini-xlr.

They have a switch that turns them off when they're not on your head.

The only reason to try something else in this price range is if you really want open headphones or if you like a lot of bass.

Now I can hear everything clearly !

This headphone is a big organizer that comes to your project studio, fixes the frequencies, fixes the problems, helps you hear everything better. In other words; it does everything except cleaning your desktop and ironing your shirts. You can listen to critical details with this headphone. It is also great when miking amps, cabinets or instruments. If you are mixing in a noisy live entertainment this should be your optimum solution tool. Comes with alternative ear pads and alternative cable. This is a must for recording, mixing and mastering applications.
