I have used the k141 for over 8 year up to this day. The bottom line is, I won't recomend this headphone for live mixing or DJ'ing. The best enviroment for these headphones are in a broadcast setting, they were designed for sound quality not loudness. They are open air thus you can hear all that is going on around you at the same time monitering your on air program. In a quiet studio with a K141 on your ear you won't know where the music is comming from, it's pure quality. Take care of your equipment and they would last a long long time. Used by radio stations all over the world.

That was my first "pro" Headphone. At the first time I find that was excelent. But sometime ago, hearing another headphones I saw that my reference was completely wrong. Now I have too a Sennheiser HD640 and an Audio-Technica ATH-T44.This K 141 and the ATH-T44 I can just use for musicians for they listen to what they are playing. ATH-T44 is more loud and soundproof than K 141, so K 141 is not being so used now when recording a vocal, a drummer or a micked guitar gabinet.And the principal, both aren't good for mixing. You cant hear well the bottom lows nore highs.. both sound dark. In the other hand, HD 640 is perfectly clean, transparent, brilliant, you can hear the basses (20Hz to 70Hz) and you can hear the difference with no difficulties. Im just using HD 640 for mixing, with no monitors and Im getting professional quality in mixings, but, of course, dont forget the music reference for cmparisions because at headphones all always appear good... and with speaker monitors the things are differently.For the price, there are a lot of same quality headphones, like Koss and anothers.

I use these with a pair of KRK V8 monitors, I was surprised how well mixes translated when checked on the monitors, solid bass and funky 70's look.

    Best Uses

      I've had these since december 2004 and there has been no problem with them, even though when I was younger I didn't take too good care of them.

      Best for the cost

      I've been using these for about 3 months and they are remarkable. Sound quality is excellent. I'm about to buy a second pair!

      Not worth the money

      By The Kwizatz Haderach

      These are the best headphones I've used, but they didn't last me long. I took decent care of them, but you know that in the studio headphones can get dropped or the cord gets stepped on. I'm planning on replacing them with something that will give me a little more milage for the price.

      Only ONE THING...

      By jkale

      from Birmingham, AL

      I said overall a 3 only because while these headphones have great sound for the money, IF something goes wrong with them (like say the cable shorts out on you)...good luck finding a replacement.

      Big Disappointment

      By BentGuitar

      from Vermont

      I used to have a pair of AKG K240s that I used for years and loved. After a while though, the connection started to go bad and I had to jiggle the cable (where it connects to the headphones) to get any sound to come out. The K141s looked like a good replacement and cost about what I spent on the K240, so I bought them. When I put them on for the first time I noticed that the pads around the earpieces are significantly smaller than the K240s. And after wearing them for an hour, my ears were hurting. They sounded alright for a while but within a two months were overdriving. To add insult to injury, I've only had them for four months and the connection has already gone bad. Now I have to jiggle the cable where it meets the headphone to get them to work at all - The same problem that I had with the K240s after years of flawless performance! I don't abuse my headphones or anything... it just seems that AKG can't get this right.

      Best headphones I've used

      By Tom-epQjE

      from Syracuse, NY

      See all my reviews

      I've had the K 140's for 25 years (pretty much the same). They are clean, produce the whole range from the deepest bass to the highest highs as good as anything I've heard. I've never had a problem with them. Highly recommended.

      The quality decent, but they break easily.

      I've had 2 pair for a year, however I've got to buy new ones this year because they aren't durable.
