THEY WORK FOR ME!

IT'S LIKE WEARING YOUR AMP, ON YOUR HEAD. SO COMFORTABLE, THAT I CAN USE THEM WITH MY GLASSES ON, AND THE GLASSES DON'T DIG INTO THE SIDES OF MY HEAD.

The Test: First, I listened to my Reference CD on the Speakers, then on my Sony MDR-7506 Headphones. When I put these AKG's on I immediately heard a coloring on the mid-range. After going back & forth a few times I realized there was even a phase ( hardness ) problem in the mid-range, as well.
The other 2 engineers with me agreed. Both gave it a 'thumbs down'.
Were the headphones defective? Could be, but if so, it means poor quality control.

        Comments about AKG K92 Closed Back Headphones:

        The K92 is so close, yet so far from being a great choice for budget friendly, practical headphones. If the "ultra-comfortable ear pads" were just 3/16 deeper, they'd be awesome. The depth of the ear pads on my K92 is 11/16. I also own a pair of K612, and their depth is 14/16. That extra 3/16 makes all the difference between a comfortable, true circumaural fit OVER the ear, and a circumaural design that sits ON the ear. The fact that the K92 actually sits on the ear might be acceptable if the fabric used to cover the driver section had just a little cushion, but the fabric they used is very similar to pantyhose material, no cushion at all. The end result is a plastic cover with little holes smashing my ears. I can only wear the K92 for about 10 minutes at a time. I really like everything else about the K92; they're light, the self-adjusting headband woks great, excellent outside noise attenuation, sounds good, and they look good. If you have shallow ears that didn't grow too far from you head, these might be a good choice.

          Comments about AKG K92 Closed Back Headphones:

          Very true sound. Some have complained that these "color" the sound somewhat. Guess what? There is nothing that does not emphasize certain frequencies over others in some respect or another. That is why two instruments of the same make and model may have a slightly different sound. I like that these have adequate bass without sounding like a teenager's car with a giant subwoofer driving past the house. The highs are also there but not unnaturally pronounced. With these phones, I have heard things in my music that I have never heard before, with any phones. One caveat - this is my second pair. The first pair I received had a slight distortion at some frequencies in the right channel. MF replaced the phone, and the new pair work perfectly.
