Excellent headphone at this price. Bought these elsewhere, but they are so good for the money that i thought it would be worth sharing my experience with them. Sound wise, their frequency response is quite flat, but extends well into the low bass regions. The bass is clear, punchy, but not muddy. They are not for bassheads, but if a track demands sub-bass, you’ll hear it clearly enough. The mids are stunning and accurate, and the highs crystal clear. The soundstage is excellent, but most impressive of all is the imaging that these headphones produce – you’ll hear details you didn’t know were there and find yourself spending hours going through your music collection listening to track for the first time in years, just for the pure joy of the experience. I’ve found these to be quite good for many genres including classical, vocal, electronic and rock and although they are best with high quality lossless recordings, they are forgiving of poorer quality mp3s. They have a high resistance (120 ohms), so although you can use them on the headphone port of your computer if you really have to (with the volume maxed), you really will not get the best out of them unless you have a good quality headphone amp. Build wise, they are well made and sturdy.
“parcel handed to receptionist” that’s how the courier described one of our senior rmn nurses. Seriously though, these headphones are the lightest and most comfortable i’ve ever owned,and the sound quality,sublime. Was seriously going to get the k550’s up to these being on the daily deals last week. Use these at home and k451’s when mobile,if you know your hi-fi ,such brands as akg should be on your shopping list.
Excellent neutral headphones. . Forwarding this review in view of the fact that no review has been posted on amazon on these headphones (though i admit not having purchased the akg k612 pro from amazon, but i have purchased akg 550, audio technica ath ad700 and sony mdr v6 all from amazon and am also completely happy with these purchases). Had purchased the akg 612 pro as i always wanted an akg 701 or 702, but the price of these are quite steep. The 612 are very similar to those headphones, with probably some more bass than the 701, which is good, and still very clear and crisp sounding, with excellent mids (for which akg are renowned) and excellent treble (without any sibilance). For the price they are excellent and cheaper than any of the akg 7 series. The basic difference is that the cable is not detachable, but if you take good care of it, there does not seem to be any reason for the cable to need replacement and re-cable.
Comfortable and clear (akg k612). . These headphones are very comfortable, with plenty of room for my ears. The voices are extremely clear, but the bass is lacking (probably due to the open design). I’m very pleased by these, and the price seems reasonable. I bought a fiio olympus 2 to drive these, though the headphones are generally loud enough with just my computers inbuilt sound. Though i don’t regret buying the dac. The only headphones i have previously owned are the ath-m50s, which are a closed design, with much more bass, but definitely no where near as comfortable. The fact that these are open means that i can hear people around me talking, and they can kind of hear me listening to music. Though the sound leakage is not loud enough to be heard through walls. I bought these from absolute music solutions on amazon.

These are great – i use them for mixing but unlike the beyer dynamic dt range, which are very sterile and only really of use for mixing – these can be used for listening to music too – very detailed and open sounding – hi-fi headphones like grado’s will make all your music sound good, even bad recordings will sound ok – the akg’s are very revealing and you will get what is on the disc – a bad recording will sound bad and a good one great- i used them for mixing some rock music from an 8 track recorder and they were so accurate – i got to disc what the phones gave me when mixing- i love them.

Got these in a lightning sale over christmas for about £70. They were worth every penny and more. Good but not overpowering bass. Fairly comfortable, light weight, with a long cable. Build quality is good, not amazing, but for the price, even at £100 its what i’d expect. They will need an amp, most on-motherboard soundcards will not have enough power to run them at a good volume, although its quite possible dedicated soundcards will be fine. I don’t believe they will work well on phones or portable devices without an amp.
