First skeptical and then seduced super ... - Reviews AKG K 271 MK II

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

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 ...
