The sound quality is very good.
Skyler Brunner
When I compared it side by side to the Beyerdynamic DT770 AE, I found that the K167 just beat out the Beyers in the sound department in almost every aspect.

I initially liked how the cans really hugged around my head.

I owned these headphones for one week, and ended up returning them. Initially, out of the box, I thought these were some of the best headphones that I had heard in the under-$500 category. The upper frequencies are "detailed" so if someone is looking for a warmer sound, this isn't the headphone for you. But, the bass is really good - and, by that, I do mean that there is detail in the bass and it is not just a "one note" wonder with the bass. But, what really started to get to with this product (the K167 headphones) is that at the end of a week, the foam in the ear pads didn't seem to be strong, or thick enough to keep a good level of padding thickness. This resulted in my ears literally touching the baffle of the headphones. So, I tried a recommended "tweak" to use some tissues to slightly raise the pads for comfort, however, the bass really suffered. This told me that the design of the headphones was really dependent upon the thinner pads and the ears had to be closer to the baffle for better bass.

My background: 30+ years of audio experience, speaker and subwoofer building, as well as a headphone enthusiast who loves music and good headphones.

I was one of the very first adopters of the K167. When I compared it side by side to the Beyerdynamic DT770 AE, I found that the K167 just beat out the Beyers in the sound department in almost every aspect. However, despite the stellar sound at the price point, these units have far too many problems for me to be able to recommend them.

First, the earpads are firm and plush - until you break them in after a week, whereupon they turn into millimeter-thick on-ear pancakes whenever these are worn.

Second, the cable is very irritating because it is coiled, heavy, and non-detachable. This is the most annoying part of these units, because the cable is unwieldy and always gets in your way due to the weight; the cable bounces like crazy when you walk and can pull things it is attached to right off the end of a surface if you are not careful.

Third, the plastic used to construct the unit is clearly inadequate for any rigorous use; it creaks and bends heavily even in the most normal of circumstances. These feel as though they are going to break whenever they are handled.

Fourth, the folding mechanism is a total joke. It is very clumsy, and there are no situations where it is practical or useful due to the shoddy overall build of the headphone putting the unit at risk of snapping should it be placed in a bag.

Finally, the headband adjustment system is extremely weak and prone to breakage. Within two months of normal usage, both sliders managed to bend and snap at the connection point between the headband and the cup. Keep in mind, I have a smaller head than average, so there is no excuse for this occurring.

Here is what needs to happen: AKG needs to scrap production of both the AKG K167 and K267 and merge the models into one unit.

I purchased these in December 2012, and was immediately pleased with how they sounded. I bought them to use at work while sitting at my desk working on a computer, getting on average about 8-10 hours of use a week. In early February I noticed the plastic inside the headband (that houses the cord) started to crack at the expansion areas on both sides. I have a fairly normal sized head (I wear a 7 5/8 baseball cap), and am always very careful not to pull headphones farther than needed when putting them on and taking them off. I treated these (my first pair of 'expensive' headphones) very well. I continued to use them very infrequently for the next few weeks (1-2 hours a week at most), and now one of the sides has completely broken through and the other side is not far behind.

They are basically unwearable now because they don't feel stable on my head and the sound leaks from a lack of pressure, and I am afraid that the cord will be damaged with further use. For these not to even last 2 months with light/moderate use and very careful handling is absolutely unacceptable. I will be contacting Amazon/AKG for a refund/replacement soon, and will make updates if/when I get a response.

The K167 are top contenders in the sub $500 price range, they have better bass impact and clarity then a D2000 and a variety of other headsets, even with tiesto branding they do not sound like DJ headphones, they are all-around solid AKG. The headphones are using fiberglass reinforced polymer, they are light & durable & the coiled cable is helpful in situations were distance is short (Attached to an E11, etc).

Super happy with the purchase, AKG has done a wonderful job.

I bought those headphone back in January,
and Last weekend while enjoying listening music,
the base of the right arm simple broke, so the right speaker does not longer stay applied on my hear.

Now I am in the process of returning them and getting my payment back.

Otherwise I loved the sound of those headset, but the armature sounds fragile. I still don`t understand how it could brake.

I don`t think I will buy them again but go for the AKG-550, which is more expensive for sure
