The headphone is fragile because its construction uses a mediocre plastic.

I used this headset for a little more than a year of tracking and also as supplementary listening to mix media. The headset is comfortable but had a tendency to overheat a bit my ears and shake my head.

This headset is designed almost entirely with plastic, a few screws, etc ... and even glue. All I think is very fragile and should be handled carefully, mine did not survive more than two years.

In addition, the automatic function that mutes the sound when removing the headset works much.

No, this headphone does not have a flat response, the bass is back, but it is still usable and pleasant to listen. It isolates reasonably well and there is virtually no repisse, but is certainly not suitable for a tracker battery for example.

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.

How long you use it?
I use it for almost 2 years

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
I had a headphone with Denon, I forgot the ref ... but very good for hifi
I kept it ten years (repisse_mais good spectral balance), in recording I used the Sony Mdr 7506 impressed me and I finally purchased thereafter while guaranteeing that the AKG I love it.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
+ Comfort is obvious
+ The light weight (240g)
+ Headphones closed
+ Do not tire quickly tuned (low impedance: 55 ohms)
+ The spectrum (fairly neutral / do not flatter sound) sleazy bump in the mids, treble, bass well rendered. Response 16-28000 Hz
+ Ergonomics
+ Accessories shipped (smooth cord 3m and 5m twisted / leatherette and velvet ear ... and parts interchangeable if Hs)
+ If not cut his ears
+ Quality connectors (gold plated screwed)

- No storage pouch
- Given the size of the atria, not terrible to get around the neck
- Not able to listen in one ear / sound off automatically
- Repisse sleazy atmosphere in very quiet

As'm writing in the title, first skeptical, my Denon 7506 and the sony mdr really flatters the sound (good bass, dynamics etc. ...)

Limit initially disappointed (because any more objective!) ... Do not forget that this is a closed studio headphones ... for sound recording and mixing, and it is this perspective that I aquis.Je have wanted as neutral as possible ..
I ended up buying the Sony MDR 7506 as a complement to its power, its low dynamic but it is much more tiring.
after 2 years of use ... I love the AKG 271 mk 2 and the choice I would do without a doubt, contrary to initial ...

A great headphone at his straight clean, very comfortable to use for really great light, just a must for those who need to be isolated from the outside while having his faithful.
The clamping system is very efficient and convenient alternative wire phone type and foam parts are a good plus for this product.
I use it for home recording made for singing rap, guttural cry, black metal vocals, guitars, basses, etc. .... great investment in a few months I m buying a second for colleagues.
