Unreal. Purchased for a fledgling production company I'm the "equipment guru" for. I was a little skeptical about ordering these and expected them to be a little boxy sounding since they're so inexpensive and I needed to get everything on the cheap. The only thing they are signifigantly lacking in is low end. Its there but it is not very deep. These phones will be used for monitoring speech on a radio show, and they are more than perfect for that. You hear EVERYTHING. Unbelievably detailed for such cheap headphones. They are well sealed too, can't hear myself typing right now with music on a pretty low volume. They are from AKG so they have the comfortably, smartly designed headband. These don't feel like they're going to break or wear out either. They ALMOST put my Sony 7506s to shame, but only because my 7506s are beat to a bloody pulp and don't seal well anymore. These AKGs won' have that problem though. Get them.

I bought these headphones hoping for a pair of decent studio headphones, but they conked out on the first day. The left speaker was cutting out, so I sent the pair back for a replacement. The same thing happened with the second set. The speaker started cutting out on the second day of recording.These headphones are a wonderful prouduct, if you're looking for something that you can use for one day and then throw away. If you're looking for something better, try a more high end model.

great headphones for the price

By Chuck Short

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

Better than my 200 dollar kossheadphones, I got them in a package deal with a fostex four track, and now use them as my on-air phones for work in radio.

akg k-44, a good buy

By drums 2 3 4

from charlotte, nc

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

Pretty descent headphones for the money, high power handling, good sound and comfy. As far as isolation goes, your better off with something else. Very useable for studio recording of guitar and drums, need something else for vocals.

MUST BUY

By Ping Pong

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

You simply cannot get a better set of cans at this pricepoint. Actually, you'd be getting a great deal even if they charged TRIPLE what you'd pay now. I've used these for my home recording setup for nearly 10 years and I have one solitary complaint. The shape of the padding is less ergonomic than more expensive models, so if you're a big-eared fella, then these will hurt your cartilage after a couple hours of wear. But you know, they're still worth buying!

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

I've been using these for years and I am very pleased with them. Much better ther you'll find in most Nashville studios they use some of the crappiest headphones I wonder where they get them? I'll stick with the k44's I also have some much much more expencive phones but I really can't tell any difference except they are usually heavy and not worth the price difference" use a good phone amp" and go with the 44's or 55's.

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

These are very detailed, especially for the price, overall a very good value. The low end is a little lacking, but not to a huge extent...Definitely a no brainier if your low on cash! I got these about a year ago... Since then they have been stomped on, run over my a computer chair more times than I can count, fallen on, slept on, and kicked around like a soccer ball. And they still work like they just came out of the box. Worth the money if only for the durability!

High quality

By Richard Hutchinson

from San Antonio, Tx

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

I bought these about a year ago. I use them for mixing theatrical sound cues and listining to music. I have noticed no distortion and they have not been damaged at all yet. The low end is very good on these. I have not, however, played these at higher then the standard +12 dB for pc with +12 dB on the lower frequencies and +4 dB on the higher frequencies, so I can't tell you at what volume these will be damaged.

Super kewl

By Woman in cans

from Severe South Texas

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

I got these to replace a cheap pair of "studio" headphones I used with the TV and music player. First I looked at the local electronics stores and decided they were way overpriced. These cans cost less, feel tougher, sound better, are more comfortable... You get the idea. I'm not using these for any kind of critical mixing or reference stuff, just for personal use. They sound super nice on my mp3 player and the PC and awesome on movies. Never buy cheapie headphones. Get these. You're paying the same up front for a better product.

Feel good, sound lousy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

I found the bass response too loose and muddy. Lack of detail in the mids and no high end, so I sent them back and ordered another pair of Yamaha RH2Bs. K-44s are comfortable, easy to adjust, and loud, but the Yamahas are much more accurate and a few bucks cheaper.

Goog but Bad

By StopStatic

from Henderson, TN

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

They worked great while recording my band's album. The left ear stopped working 5 months into it. They sound wonderful. Because of the short in the left ear, they are basically unusable in a studio.

Tough to beat for the money. Without a doubt, the most comfortable cans I have found. Very good bass response - I use them for long electric bass practice sessions in the evenings.

Good Headphones

By JiLt

from New England

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

I use these headphones to record in my home studio, and they work perfect. The 8 foot cord makes it real easy to stand at the mic while the headphones are connected to the computer. The sound quality is surprisingly good for the price, and there is actually decent bass responce. Mids and Highs are decent too. I use these to record rap, so the sound quality doesn't have to be perfect, but these definitely work great for what I have to do. I mix with studio monitors, but I COULD mix with these headphones if I had too. Great headphones for the price. definitely recommended.

I had bought these headphones with my first studio and i had no problems watsoever. however i was very surprised at the quality of the headphones for the price. i like the volume levels it adjusts to as well. but take it from a buyer (these headphones are great but i would go with a sony or at least a better AKG product. good luck.....

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

I needed a new set of headphones, but couldn't afford the pair I wanted, so I went with a name I knew. I was already ordering a bunch of gear, so I added a pair to my cart. They are very comfortable and produce spl's off the headphone out on my mixer that are amazing, with extreme clarity and decent isolation. I can actually feel the bass!

Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

For the money these headphones are pretty good. But they are not that good. I would recommend spending the extra bucks and picking up the akg's a step up. Still, good for the price.
