For use on iphone 4 at office. Pro: portable, very light weight, for the price this is good sound for vocal and softer music, good noise cancelling, solid built connector Con: Not very comfortable for long hours or wearing, I have a small-medium sized head. Not so much if needs heavy bass or metal. Would prefer a cord that is an extra feet longer. Compared with my HD202 I will pick this for sound but HD202 was more comfy.
AKG is recognized world wide for quality1/21/2013
At our recording studio we have used AKG microphones and headphones for nearly 50 years. The brand is recognized world wide and the quality is superior. These small headphones are ideal for our location recording of concerts. The price is great.
Good product for price. Phones are balanced towards lows but not dull. Good complement for portable players which lack strong bass and output power. Phones are loud without distortion, have sufficient sound insulation and are suitable for noisy environments, like on train etc. It is folding flat and is somewhat pocketable. Cord could be more flexible. Build quality - as new - is adequate, durability - too early for educated opinion.
I purchased it because I have good experience with AKG products. The price was right, the earphones are small enough to be carried when I travel. The sound quality is surprisingly good for the earphones of this size.
