Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AKG K551 Reference-Class Over-ear Headphones with In-Line Remote and Microphone - Black/Silver (Electronics)
While these headphones are aimed squarely at iPhone users you really need to connect them to a decent hifi to understand their full capability. Restricting them to mp3 or similar formats is a bit like buying a Ferrari and then putting parafin in the tank.
Give them a quality source and they really shine, the soundstage they present is excellent and very natural. Mozart's harpsichord concertos proved how detailed the top end was and the Fleetwood/McVie pairing on 'The Dance' demonstrated total authority of the lower registers.
The cord is a little short but come on AKG, you could have included a 1/4 inch stereo adaptor so they can be plugged into equipment worthy of their quality! Not doing so is just stupid.

You could have bought the K550 which is the same headphone with a 3m lead and a 1/4 inch adapter in the box. Much more suited to home stereo use.
