    Slip these decadent cinabuns onto your ears and prepare to indulge. Sure, earbuds are good for isolating yourself from the people around you when you’re forced to head out and face the world…but when you head off to your safe space to get away trust me when I say you want to wrap yourself up in these ear cocoons. Feeling a little edgy…go with the pleather pads…no you say, soft and fuzzy is more your speed…those are included too! Long and straight…sure, you can stay plugged in up to 9 feet away…or maybe you like the look of the corded phones of yester-year because they throw a coiled cord in there too! Listen, I’m no audiophile but when I swaddled my noggin with these muffins for the first time I swear I could almost smell the sound engineer sitting next to me…in fact they’re even better than being in the front row at a concert because you don’t get the performer’s sweat and saliva on you (unless you’re into that sort of thing). I’d give them 6-stars if I could.Read more

    My friend Michael (A professional composer) suggested them to me when I was looking for something to use at home, and I could not be happier. They are specifically designed for studio work. In particular sound mixing. So they have several features that would make them both attractive and unattractive to casual listeners. What I love about them is the flat sound and clarity. I should probably explain those ideas. Flat sound: Commercial brand headsets generally boost the bass because people seem to like that. Studio headsets don’t make any adjustments to the EQ, so you’re hearing exactly what the tracks producer wants you to hear. If you dig bass, I’m not judging you, it is just my opinion that not every song is helped by that trick. Clarity: Commercial headsets have a tendency to “sweeten” the sound. How to describe that idea? Ok, so you know when an actress starts demanding to be shot with a scrim on the camera? So the picture looks gauzy and you can’t see all her wrinkles? Sweetening is like that for sound. Things get muddied and you don’t notice little imperfections. I actually like to hear those imperfections. When you occasionally hear a “mistake” like a nail scraping along an acoustic guitar string, then even a studio track feels more live. Also with improved clarity you can experience over and undertones of a particularly rich voice or instrument. You are also able to get the full decay of cymbal crashes or guitar plucking as the sound naturally fades away. Or if there is a podcast with a particularly involved sound design like “The Left Right Game” the experience can be more immersive. On that note you can also plug them in to listen to the audio of a movie and make it true surround sound. Now they are not without their problems that would turn off casual listeners, as I said earlier. For example they have no noise damping function. They wouldn’t need it because they are designed for use in a recording studio which is, traditionally, a very quiet place. They will also bleed out sound, so anyone else in the room will hear what you’re listening to if you’re really cranking the volume. Something Helen has complained about. They are also not very adjustable so if they don’t fit your head, they might not be very comfortable. Which is only a problem if you’re an adult with a particularly large or small head. But at a price point well under most commercial brands (less than $100 on Amazon) they are a fantastic buy if you have the time and inclination to just sit in a dark room alone. Honestly it’s like HD for your ears and is such a pleasurable experience you might forget for a few minutes that the president suggested we look into injecting disinfectant into our veins.Read more

    I’m probably not an audiophile, but I have a very particular ear. Before becoming a professional classical musician I sold high end car stereos. Right now I’m doing a fair amount of mixing for the orchestra I direct. The Sony MDR 7506’s that I had used for years had fallen apart and I was looking for an upgrade. After buying and returning some high end phones and spending a fair amount of time getting feedback from professionals I found the AKG 240 MK II’s. Pros: * They sound AMAZING! That’s really what matters most. They are clean but warm especially in the high and mids. Not a lot of punch down low but nice full resonance. Sounds more like what music really sounds like than BEATS or BOSE. Not artificiality to the response. Great for mixing or listening to the music the way the sound engineer intended. Incredible detail. The thing that attracted me to them most was the open sound plane. The semi-open design delivers a sound that feels farther away than speaker attached to your head. They really give you a nice 3 dimensional feel to the sound. Clear, full, warm, wide sound plane, no real spikes or harshness — well done AKG! I spend a considerable amount of time in front of the musicians I’m listening to on these phones as I mix and it sounds as close to being on the podium as any set of phones I have tried. *Comfortable. They come with two sets of pads. I like the felt. Two cords. I like the coiled. They are comfortable and big. I wish they were a little less angled in but I can wear them for a couple of hours before I need a break. Cons: * Not super efficient. Listening to classical music on your phone or even iPod, sometimes you can’t get it as loud as you might like. They are made to plug into a sound board or computer. *Not all that portable. The Sony MDR 7506 fold up smaller, came with a bag, and were just easier to throw in your bag. These are large, don’t fold, and are not all that portable. *The semi-open design means that as I’m listening others can hear pretty easily what I’m listening to and I can hear other noise as well. If you want sound isolation then you’re better off with a closed-ear design. Summary: I give them 5 stars because the cons are only cons if you are trying to use these phones for purposes other than the intended use of these phones. They aren’t intended for jamming on the train or on the beach. They are intended for mixing or audiophile listening. Plug them into your amp or soundboard and they are an incredible value. I was at a radio station as they were playing some of our recordings and when they swapped the phones for the 240’s I was sold. They are a fantastic, professional sounding phones at a bargain price. I listen to rock on them as well and they do fine but for a classical music lover I think they are even better suited. Everything is warm and clear and even. No harsh peaks like with the Sony’s no exageratted mids and lows like the Sennheiser’s I returned. What can I say, when I listen with these it sounds more like it sounds when I’m on the podium. That’s what I wanted!Read more

    Mettiamo in chiaro: non è più la AKG di qualche anno fa… la cuffia non è più “made in Austria” e dalla qualità dei materiali si sente, anche se comunque non sono così scadenti da gridare allo scandalo. Ma capite che negli anni AKG ci ha abituato troppo bene. E’ una buona cuffia, non estremamente neutra ma comunque abbastanza per un ascolto veramente Hi-Fi grazie alla ampia e ottima risposta in frequenza. Eccellente il kit con i padiglioni in velluto e il doppio cavo, comodissimo quello spiralato. Anche la confezione è di primissimo livello per proteggere una cuffia di questa levatura. I 55Ohm di impedenza ne consentono un buon uso con quasi ogni sorta di dispositivo, consigliata comunque una sorgente che renda onore a una cuffia simile… Insomma: per poco più di 90€ è una cuffia eccellente, se poi pensate poi che c’è chi si pavoneggia con pessimi prodotti come le Beats… acquisto stra-consigliato.Read more
