5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality. Great value., 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought mine on the 16th of December 2013 (222.99 GBP aprox. 270EUR) and they are made in China. Since there was all this fuss about being made in Austria was better, I also bought in a local store another pair made in Austria for 449EUR !! I had them both for 2 weeks. The made in China ones are more confortable, the band is softer than the ones on the made in Austria, it doesn't hurt your head as the one on the made in Austria. The made in Austria makes structural noise when you move your head. In terms of sound quality I prefer the made in China. For my ears and with my system (Rega ear2 headphones amplifier + Arcam iRDAC), the made in China ones were warmer without loosing detail. I listen mostly jazz and I found myself rediscovering my collection. Play an high resolution 24bit file, using good software like Audirvana, and they will shine. I returned the made in Austria and kept the made in China. I belive that the made in China, since they are a more recent version, were improved after custommers feedbak and comfort complaints. Good work AKG: improved quality, less expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Traditional FM portable radio made as it should be. It's just an FM radio, but a good one., 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple, good looking and does the job. Good price for what it is.
Easy to tune the stations.
It's not a small radio therefore it doesn't sounds like a telephone. It has good sound quality, it's not comparable to the great Tivoli Model One (which is far more expensive) but it has a nice non offending sound. The tone controls are very handy. The volume control is smooth and allows you to hear it in a very low sound level (the tivoli doesn't).
I've been using it connected to the mains. I can't tell about battery life.
Don't give 5 stars because it misses a light indicator for when the station is tuned.
Very satisfied. Good for listen to the news, football and music all around the house. Perfect for the kitchen. Not good if you are looking for something with near hi-fi quality as the Tivoli Model One.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 28 Feb 2013
Just bought it. First impressions: good and clear mid-range,very detailed. Low frequencies are there but not close to being deep. I believe that with some burn time will get better. Good sound for the money. I own the Sennheiser HD515, HD450II and the great HD238. Those are my experience with headphones. Of course these AKG are on another level of price and quality but they do a good job and have a far better sound than the horrible things that apple sells with the iPod. If you change from these AKG to the HD238, in a side by side comparison, you will find that the K313 sounds small and dull. So don't do that! Let them get use to you :) by themselves. I'm using it with an iPod touch 4th generation and it drives them very well.
Feels comfortable (for about 2 hours of (non contiguous) use, so far).
Ian Garbarek sounds great on them. Seems well build.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive for just one episode, 12 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good episode.
It's a bit of a rip off as it isn't included in any of the series two sets. 3 stars.
5 stars for the quality of the contents.

The best case for a raspberry pi.
If you like the looks of your RPi this is the case for you. Your RPi is never hidden.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not good as a raspberry pi cable, 12 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a good cable for powering a raspberry pi.
Innergie cables are a much better (and more expensive) choice to use as a power cable.
Didn't test it as a data cable but I believe it should do a good job.

Small but does a good job.
You can join several of them if you need a bigger board.
Good connectors and well marked.

Much better than series two.
We enjoyed seeing some of the characters evolving in more interesting directions.
Looking forward for series four.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product - iMac compatible, 8 Mar 2012
I bought two of these to upgrade my iMac last August and they are working fine. Fully compatible.
I added to the existing 4GB that came with the iMac and now i have 12GB.
I do recommend it.
