5.0 out of 5 stars Strange But True 18 Feb 2013
By Winkle
In the Studio I find it strange that most of my female vocalist prefer the feel and warmth of sound of these AKG K44 Headphones in preference to the normal (5 times the price)Beyer Dynamic DT100 Industry Standard phones. I must agree, having used Beyers and AKGs for many years these cheaper phones can sometimes come as a nice refreshing change to the norm, albeit these have not got the complete clarity and crispness of the Beyers, but the sound from them is more relaxing and less tiring on the ears. A bargain at the price but...... I don't think would stand up the general 'rough and tough' daily abuse the Beyer DT's would normally get from some clients. All the same, good quality sound at this remarkable price with (of course) the infamous AKG Tag on them. Now if you are set on getting some AKGs at a good price and dont like the reviews on these, spend just a couple of 's/Euro's more as I would strongly recommend the AKG K512's at a very similar price. The high's and lo's of the response are similar between the two models but the main advantage with the 512's is you can 'crank up' the level going in to them without distortion and the overall 'fit' is a bit more snug on the head. Great for Rock Guitarists who want to make their ears bleed as well as loosed the ear wax whilst monitoring their playing.... Hope this review helps.

October 2013. About 8 months on from when I bought these. They have had some typical Studio abuse from 'Frustrated Rock Guitarists' recently who put them through hell and made me crank up the monitoring volume levels in to them to excess. guess what..? the phones came through it shining all the way. More proof of their outstanding quality for the price. I still can't get it many people prefer them to the Studio Standard Beyers.. but it's been proven for itself virtually daily. As I have said before the girls love-em for their lightness and relaxing easier warmth of sound on the ears...... 'Rock On AKG Man'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 16 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Although these might not be suitable for the needs of a high end audiophile I think for the money they represent excellent value for money. I have four pairs of these now which I use in different situations and am very happy with them. I also find them comfortable even after wearing them for some time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I use headphones quite a lot, but I don't like paying big bucks for them. My best set, which I use for tracking and mixing in what I laughingly call my home studio, is a Sony pair that cost about 60. In my view, only a professional or a very serious amateur should spend 200+ on a pair of studio cans, and only a fashion victim would spend that on headphones for listening to MP3s (pffft!). So that's the perspective I'm coming from: an informed consumer, but by no means a connoisseur.

Anyway, that said, these are terrific headphones for the price I paid (23). I find them comfortable to wear and very pleasant to listen to. In what I presume is a concession to current fashions, there is a slight bass emphasis, so I can't say the frequency response is flat. But the overall sound is nice and clear and I didn't notice any significant loss of volume. In summary, I wouldn't use these for mixing/mastering, but if you're looking for an inexpensive pair of headphones for general use, or even for monitoring, I warmly recommend the K44s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really surprisingly great 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I can't get over how good and comfy these are. I have tiny sensitive ears (not unlike a pixie) so anything that presses on them makes me cross and irritable (not like a pixie). These are nice and light and comfy for extended periods. I can't really comment on the depth of sound or whatever as I'm something of an audio-philistine (audiostine...?) but they make noises go directly in your ears with minimal discomfort and maximum being-able-to-hear-what-the-words-are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable. 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I find these headphones very light weight and the self adjusting band creates a perfect fit.
My wife has claimed them for our audiobook editing work.
I also ordered a pair of behringer HPS 3000 headphones.
I must say the behringers have a better sound, the AKGs I find are a bit muddy audio wise.
However they look better and for the money pretty good.
They have a push fit jack adapter for iPad and such like. They also have a long cord maybe a bit too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good headphones 18 Aug 2013

Cheap and good quality audio. Comfortable head piece, however ear-cups are a bit too shallow for my ears, they start to hurt after 2 or so hours. But apart from that, great.
