5.0 out of 5 stars The best £50 I've spent this year., 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AKG K451 High-Performance Foldable Portable Mini Soft Cushioned Headphones with In-Line Volume Remote and Microphone Compatible with iOS Apple Devices - Black (Electronics)
These are superb headphones. They are light without feeling flimsy, and hold my average-sized head snugly without making my ears burn. I like the classy crystal clear, untainted or artificial sound. If you're looking for filling-removing bass though - look elsewhere. While the 451s will happily render the most bass-heavy music that I own they will do so with poise and grace, never feeling like they're struggling, never feeling that they have nothing more to give.

These offer a quality of sound which will easily match something at twice the price or more. I've listened to a lot of pairs recently so I feel confident in recommending these.

Now someone's about to pop up claiming to be an 'Audiophile' saying that their obviously superior hearing detects muddiness or some other undefinable quality and that they should be the last word in reviews, that their £10,000 stereo never lies. Hmm. All I know is that my phone - my main listening source - drives them without faltering and delivers a flawless performance.

Chunky bass-heavy house such as Katie B's 'I Like You' is presented on a clear stage with all frequencies sitting squarely where they should. Drum and bass hasn't phased them either - Sub Focus' very technical production style is made even more enjoyable by being able to follow those massive bass sweeps right down through the sub-bass to the floor. Less power-driven music shows new detail. The Step-kids' album Troubador is getting a new lease of life thanks to these 'phones. It sparkles.

Buy these headphones. You won't be disappointed. If you are, well that's subjectivity for you!
