£200 sound, £2 build quality.

Do not buy these! A nearly £100 reduction is not a bargain, it's an act of desperation.
On the plus side these headphones sound amazing. For the first few hours or days they stay together. Apparently AKG's Chinese manufacturer used the wrong material in the construction which has supposedly since been rectified. Well I'm on my third pair and although they are supposed to be defect free these have also developed a crack in the joint between the element and the headband. Tiesto would never use these in a club, they wouldn't last five minutes.
It's a shame as AKG gear is usually extremely good. They have been seriously let down by their manufacturer as is reflected in the price these headphones now sell for.
