I ordered the headphones as second / replacement headphones for monitoring at recordings (and as an everyday headphone for the computer). So far, I'm used to the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, which I wear practically every day in the professional field (and with which I am more than satisfied). My evaluation of the K-52 also refers to the (I know, unfair) comparison with the DT770.
The carrying comfort and the seat of the AKG K-52 is wonderful and in the price class unmatched (had already several other closed listeners tested up to about 50 euros and was never satisfied so far). The cushions also enclose large pinnacles, the headphone sits firmly enough and is very light (almost barely felt). The cable could be longer, the supplied Klinkadapter comes from the cheapest category - both of which I find at the price but justifiable.
Exclusion criterion here is the sound: synonymous with my K-52 is not right / left identical. The left side becomes quieter towards the bass. This does not have a balanced stereo field. I suspect that the capsules are not selected during the production (here you can see the price). Furthermore, I could also find an unpleasant peak in the range 6-8 kHz, which after a few hours of Einhaktzeit became significantly smaller (not subjectively, but measured ..), but not disappeared correctly. Therefore, fatigue-free listening is not possible, so I send the headphones back.
In summary: the overall quality is amazing for the price. The K-52 is in processing, wearing comfort and also sound better than anything I had for 33, - in the hands. Obviously, my demands are too high to be able to produce something suitable in the price situation. Perhaps you can be lucky and get a copy of really pairing capsules. I'll put next 100, - buy it and buy something better.
