    These are not AKG headphones, they are made by Superlux and are similar to its HD661B's. The reviewer complaining that they are not DJ headphones and that they don't have sufficient bass should be reviewing DJ headphones. These are EQ'd for studio work (they are made for "Presonus") and in that venue or for simply listening to music, these mostly neutral and dynamic headphones simply cannot be beat for the money. If you use them with a USB DAC like the FIIO E10 or E17, you even get the detail of $500 headphones. Compared to others: (1) AKG 240 mkII - much better bass reproduction; (2) Sennheiser HD280 - a little louder, more comfortable, bleeds more sound, similar detail, a little more high end shimmer; (3) Ultrasone Pro 750 - a little less detail, but very similar sound (HD 7 is the better value); (4) Stax electrostatic headphones - less detail/resolution, but better bass reproduction, easier to use and a better value. I find the bass reproduction almost perfect for studio work or listening to music exactly like it was recorded. I've owned a $25k home audiophile system (as well as extensively record live music) and know exactly how some recordings/music should sound. These headphones simply are an outstanding value for someone looking for accurate/neutral, detailed and dynamic sound. Similar priced Sony and Sennheiser headphones do not compare. Make sure to break them in with pink noise for at least 24 hours before listening to them.

    I really wished these sounded better, because they are very comfortable and seem durable.
    But the sound is way too Bright. It has a constant high end hiss. And if you have any noise in the signal - as is always the case with live sound or recording - then it gets amplified to the point where it's distracting.
    Other than that, the design, fit and finish are good.

    Comments about PreSonus HD7 Semi-closed Back Studio Headphones:

    I got these pair of headphones free with an audio interface I bought a while back. I've used them a good amount and can say that I like the clear sound they produce, but they are not reliable for any serious mixing. The low end is completely misrepresented, as it is in many speakers, so trying to mix on these headphones is near impossible.

    Comments about PreSonus HD7 Semi-closed Back Studio Headphones:

    I just recently got into learning to recording music and wanted a better pair of headphones. The ones I had before only played through one ear half the time (grrr...). That being said these DO play through both ears and feel extremely comfortable but I can't mix worth a poop with them. I just got done recording and mixing a song with a lot of bass and in the headphones, it sounded really good, but through my speakers (which are decent), it sounded like a muddy river. Obviously, this is an issue. Some other guy said the same thing pretty much, I think, but I just want to reinforce it as a nooby sound engineer. Great for listening to music or tracking or whatever. Bad for mixing.

    Comments about PreSonus HD7 Semi-closed Back Studio Headphones:

    To start, I got these for free with a promotion Presonus was running.

    I really wanted these to be great. I love most of Presonus' gear and at first I thought these would be awesome. Started on a mix with them and everything sounded great in the cans. When referenced on other speakers (monitors, headphones, earbuds) the mix was so muddy in the low-end I couldn't believe it. I'm not sure I would even use these to start a mix anymore. The mix was so far off that I would have to do a ton of work when switching to the monitors.

    I would likely use these for guitarists/bassists while tracking, but that's probably it...and for that, they would be more than fine. Music sounds great through them, and I found the volume to be more than acceptable...but for referencing...Look elsewhere.

    Another thing that bugs me about these is the material on the cans. For some reason, it makes my ears sweat like crazy. It may just be the way they sit on my ears...everyone's head is different.

                  Comments about PreSonus HD7 Semi-closed Back Studio Headphones:

                  I've used numerous headphones for home studio use and/or listening to my recordings post production. For the money, I consider these headphones an excellent buy. They have an very good full range sound that clearly and neutrally represents the music you're listening to. They are not the most detailed, but they do a good job of allowing one to critically listen to music. If you're someone who must use tone controls when listening to music to alter the original mix, then these are not for you. I've listened to the same music time after time with many different headphones and I remain satisfied with these and consider them the lowest priced set I can use. Lower end Sennheisers and Sonys do not compete. I do slightly prefer the Sennheiser HD280's, but they are $40.00 more. Both the HD7s and HD280s blow away even more expensive headphones like the AKG 271 MkII's that I had. Most headphones color your sound while some don't - the HD7's are a good sounding pair of over the ear phones that do not color your sound. Please note that I listen to and record rock music which does not have an over-abundance of low end energy to reproduce.

                  Comments about PreSonus HD7 Semi-closed Back Studio Headphones:

                  Shop around a bit more and if your able try headphones out at the store. If your still leaning towards these you won't be disappointed but you probably won't be completely happy. I recommend Sony DJ Headphones MRR-V700.
                  No real bottom end. The highs are good but when recording your lows you might have a little trouble hearing them.
                  You might want to step up to a more expensive pair of phones but yet be cautious because even the most expensive sets sometimes aren't much better.
                  The price is still a little much for what you're getting.

                  These look suspiciously like AKG 240's and sound great for the $60 price. I got my 1st pair with the AudioBox bundle and was so impressed that I ordered a 2nd pair. I may order again if they're still available. They blow my AKG K-44's away. Well worth the extra $20 and saves you $40 over the AKG 240's. Excellent value. Get em now B4 they're all gone.
