Like I said, greaty sound/volume," especially for the price. My only nitpick is it seems bit a bit lightly but no big deal for the price.
Standard package - headphones and 1/4"" adapter. Wo uld've been nice to have a pouch but no big deal.
Sound quality is fantastic! I got them for recording/jamming/listening to extreme metal and they are great. Great bass and most importantly", great clarity! Also extremely loud. The only reason I gave it an 8 is because the construction feels like it'd be easy to break. Lightweight though and extremely comfortable
Best headphones I've heard for the price just wish the construction was tougher.

I just got these because they are very affordable and had great reviews. However i am very disappointed with these AKG K99's... They do have "good" sound quality, however they sound muffled. it is like the bass/low end is turned way to far up. It takes away from a true audio experience. They are very comfortable, they dont squeeze too tight or feel too heavy.
My advice is to stick with Sennheiser.

Awesome Headphones

Comments about AKG K99 Headphones:

I originally was going to pick up the K77s, but opted for the K99s for the semi open vice closed back. These headphones are amazing and they work great with my electric guitar set up. I've ran them through my 15Watt amp, my MP3 player and (for a very short period of time) a mixing board and every time these headphones blew me away. You'll hear every little thing feeding into that 1/4 or 1/8 inch jack. Weather you like listening to super clean headphones on your MP3 player, or you?re recording with a band, these will do the job very well and at a great price. I have zero complaints about these and the price is great. Some people complain they look silly (sit high off your head) so if you worry what people think of you that might be the one and only draw back. Highly recommended.

Comments about AKG K99 Headphones:

The AKG K99 can easily stand aside the top of the line headphones. The padded earpieces allow for extended wearing with maximum comfort.They have an adjusting headband that fits! No matter if you have a small or large melon, these will comfortably hug your head.The sounds is no less than stellar. Whether you are jamming along to a CD, playing video games, or practicing the guitar; these are the ones for you. All at a great price too!

      Comments about AKG K99 Headphones:

      I purchased these as a gift for my teenage daughter. She had tried other pricier headphones and wasn't impressed. After trying these on Christmas day, not only did I get a hug from her, but she also apologized for doubting my ability to purchase headphones. Wow - from a teenage girl to her mother - I'll take it as a win!

      AKG K99 Phones

      By guitarjeff

      Comments about AKG K99 Headphones:

      Bought these recently to use with a mic going into a Behringer 1202FX mixer so the wife can rehearse songs for church. This is my first experience with AKG products, and I gotta say, I wish I had given them a try years ago. They're really comfortable (the wife wears them for literally hours at a time), and the sound was impressive. I've worn them while she sang, plugged a guitar in the mixer and played a bit, and listened to music with them, and the sound was great every time. Also, they're so lightweight, I thought the box was empty! Very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend them to anyone. Gonna get the 2xK99/art headamp4 package when next payday rolls around.

      Great sound

      By Derek Mc Awesome

      from Ca

      Comments about AKG K99 Headphones:

      they have a great sound. really clear. good lows vary smooth. the only thing is that the 1/4 adaptor got ripped to shreds (not exaggerating) when i tripped over the ridiculously long cord... like really. is there a need to have a cord that long. i can almost walk to the corner store without taking them off. but other than the connectors being crap and the cord being too long, id say there pretty good. and if your wondering. i put the adapter back together and it works fine. but everything is all bend and what not.

        An Affordable Must Have...

        By C Dee

        from Louisiana

        See all my reviews

        Comments about AKG K99 Headphones:

        Good headphones that do not break your pockets is something that seems a bit of a rarity. I've owned numerous consumer headphones and a pair or two of nicer ones (some Sennheiser something or anothers) these blow everything I've previously owned out of the water. They are accurate and comfortable to wear. A lot of headphones color the sound by "enhancing" it, which leaves you with inaccurate monitoring but not these. The AKG K99 give a damn good result to the listener. My only complaint is that they are 1/8" for mp3 players and what not but it does come with a 1/4" adapter. Usually I can't stand these and break the adapter within the first week but it seems sturdy enough for battle. Why can't they just leave the 1/8" jacks out of the picture? I will never know but yes, I've rambled long enough about nothing, just buy these if you are looking for a less than $100 pair of headphones. Say word son.

            Great sound. My daughter loves them for her animashing, editing and listening to music.
            They sit a little tall like a set of deer antlers but if you are not vain then who cares as they are very comfortable. There are better headphones but in this price range these are the best I have heard.

            Bought these with an amp package that was sold as "for recording use." Unfortunately the open ear design allows sound (especially click/rhythm track) to be picked up by the mic during recording.
            To be fair.. the headphones had great sound quality. They are just not suited for recording so I returned them. Two weeks later I'm still waiting on credit.
