What are these like with bass fellas?


No idea as I've never heard their work; are they a Drum n Bass act?

I'd be in like a shot if I didn't already have a pair of AKGs. Especially at that price. Good effort. Heat added.

I am doing a car boot tomorrow, if I can sell some enough I will treat myself. Cheers

I can confirm, great depth of sound and very comfortable to wear.

Got them and like them very much. They feel a bit old fashioned, comfortable and produce honest, clean sound.

Standard 3.5mm. Small. It comes with a 6.35mm adapter.

I find they lack a bit of bass compared to Sennheisers in the equivalent range, but they make up for that in excellent separation - the stereo image is really spacious. I'm actually using my AKGs in preference to my Sennheisers for that reason, but then again I don't listen to bass-heavy music much of the time.

Are these flimsy? Seems like they're quality isn't as good as it used to be

Car boot in October? You need ear muffs not headphones hope you took a hot water bottle as well

If you like the style, I just bought these Betron retro ones - amazon.co.uk/dp/…TPl

I got em in a lightning deal a couple of days back for £15.99. They're £20 now. They're so comfortable and amazing sound quality. (Very good bass without taking the highs away)

Betron for me, from now on.

Hope this helps someone.

I think, they are designed to produce a neutral, true to life sound. I hate stuff that goes BOOM BOOM BOOM, and they are not like that.

it was lovely in dorchester, and once banked have enough to order these....happy days!

I owned a pair of more expensive, highly regarded AKGs, but sold them on because of the severe lack of bass and a very noticeable peak in the treble.

It seems the higher up the AKG models you go, the less bass they have.

This or the Samson SR850?

First question would be. Closed or open backed?

Not bothered, just want the best sound/price ratio. Already have the Q701 so just need a cheap backup.

The Status Audio CB-1 are very good. They drop to £45 ish often. Out of the 2 you mentioned probably the AKGs.

£45 on Amazon UK?

Also are you saying the AKG K92 is better than the Samson SR850?

It is difficult buying online, sound is a personal choice, one person's bass overload/thumping headache is another persons perfect sound choice, when we used to actually try stuff first you made your own decision. At least with amazon you can return it.
I rather like the AKG K92's, although still running in, they are comfortable, I like the sound, although funnily enough I prefer to up the bass when walking and level it when at home, I tend to listen to my music without adjusting equalisers when I am at home. I have never had expensive headphones, the K92's replaced a pair of phillips which a. made me look like a cyberman and b. the ear cuffs had worn away in places. I prefer the sound of the K92's as I would say the mid range and voices are better and I seem to get less sibilance, yet similar if slightly deeper and more pronounced bass.
