AKG K167 TIESTO Headphones by AKG
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.

All in all, this is a good coffee-table book for browsing through as an introduction to the… Read more
