Audiofanzine FR's review (AKG - K 271 MK II)

Hello everybody

I've been owning these headphones for a few days.

They are a very good product, one of the best if you ask me.

Headphones can't really color the sound. Music instruments are expensive and I just can't conceive that their sound can be altered by an accessory. These AKG faithfully reproduce every signal. If you want fat and growling lows, choose another model.

With these you hear... music.

I've been using it for over two years. I also have Sennheiser HD477 and HD215. I chose these headphones after listening to them one hour at the store. Pros: comfortable (also during long runs), even though I think there are more comfortable ones. It's a closed model but the sound comes through pretty loud. The cable is quite long. I had a problem with the 1/4" connector very quickly and I had to replace it. Sound: present lows but not overemphasized. The mids are a bit "masked," perhaps it lacks transients in this frequency range. The high-frequency response is beautiful, with a lot of air. The highs are not too present, just well balanced. I get more highs from my monitor speakers (Resolv 65A). The stereo imaging is very clear: you can clearly hear where all instruments are placed. Very good to manage a reverb effect. Very nice sound deepness. The main advantage of these headphones is that you can hear almost the same as what you hear with speakers. The price is rather high, but the product is worth it. Generally, if you want high-quality gear, you must also pay a higher price. I would buy them again, even though there are many other valuable products on the market!

The low-mids are nice and allow me to make better mixes than my speakers. I use them more and more for mixing and "mastering." It's not the best solution but it's better than with my Resolv monitors...

Perfect (AKG - K 271 MK II)

By JimboSpins, 12/12/2012
the AKG K 271 MKII were on the higher end of my price range so I was hesitating a lot before I dove in and purchased them. But eventually I fished out the 250 to get them. Originally I was not too happy with the design of them because I just felt like they were kind of too plain to cost that much money. But they kind of grew on me after a month or so because they look really clean.
When it comes to comfort then these are the most comfortable that I think that I have ever had. The ear cups are very soft and they just fit right on your ear. I have even fell asleep before wearing these and didn’t wake up with a headache or uncomfortable. They truly feel amazing and when adjusted to the proper size you will not even notice that you have them on but you will feel the weight of them because they weight over 1 pound.
When you are purchasing them you can pick which style of ear pads you want, I chose the leather ear pads but you can also choose velvet. But if I wanted to I could always change out the ear pads down the road because leather can get a weird feeling on your skin after too long so it might be nice to have a pair of velvet cups too especially now that these are my primary headphones now and the ones that I prefer over all of my other pairs. They are also the most expensive that I have purchase so I have to make sure that I protect them.
The frequency range on them is 16 Hz to 28 kHz with a driver size of 30mm. The AKG K 271 comes with a 16 inch coil cable and a standard straight cable in 10 foot. You can change out your cables at any time because they are detachable.
