Decent set of cans

Nov 25, 2001

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Comfortable, even after several hours, good sound

Cons:Don't seem to be able to do both loud and deep bass

The Bottom Line: They are far better than most other headphones below £20/$30, just don't play them too loud!


I bought these so I could play on the computer at home without annoying everyone. They were perfect for that job: reproducing often complex soundtracks and with plenty of bass. Best of all they can be worn for many hours without the need to take them off: I find them exceptionally comfortable for a sub $30 set of cans.

However, I moved out recently and started to use them for things other than just the computer. And that's when I discovered they weren't marvellous. They do go loud, but feed them some bass whilst they are loud and they fudge it up. And whilst they do go low, they don't go as low as I thought they might have done without sounding weak. Still, on the plus side they are better than my speakers at low bass frequencies, and the frequencies I am refering to are pretty rare in recordings anyway.

The treble is clean and uncoloured, and not fatiguing either. This I find can be a problem with budget headphones, and thankfully not one the AKG's suffer from. The midband frequencies are fine, coping well with most recordings, but nothing outstanding.

However, considering the price (approximate: I actually paid 18 GBP) you can't complain. they may not be the best for the money, but I think surely they must come quite close.
