February 2007 Update:
The left channel started shorting out recently. I am sending these in to AKG for warranty service. It must be a weak wire -- I take good care of these headphones.
1st: They had a large cult following at [...]
2nd: I could get them for $50 new on ebay
3rd: They had a reputation of being at least partially noise canceling and being a good value in general.
After using them for two months in a loud living situation, I've come to be of the following opinion:
-Excellent noise canceling when playing music-- Enough to block out the chatter of my roommate and his girlfriend, not enough to block out a train (although I've never tried). A lot of this I think has to do with quality noise saturation. Put on some high fidelity music and rock out, nothing is going to stop you.
-Excellent general listening experience-- As previously mentioned, my experience has been with apple's white earbuds, Panny se30A's, and a few bad pairs of sony buds/cheap supra-aurals. These definitely beat out the competition, allowing me to hear previously unexplored facets of my collection. A collection that includes rock, metal, jazz, inde, pop, hip-hop, country/bluegrass, and everything in between. The AKG K81DJ's handle all with grace, providing solid bass, sweet mids and passionate highs. They provide a fuller and richer experience than my Harmon Kardon Champagne's, with which, unlike many it appears, I have had no problems at all.
-No distortion at high volumes. Because I want my skull to vibrate how the artist wants it to, not how the headphones want.Read more ›
The only cons I can think of are that they are a little bigger than I'd like for portable headphones, but I can't give up the quality of sound so I'll just deal with that. Their fairly low impedance means they work fine with portable players, so I can still use them in that capacity.
It is true that they might be a bit tight for a large head. I have a pretty small head so this is not an issue for me. I actually jog with them and they don't slip at all.
They do seal noise in/out better than regular open headphones.
For less than $100, I've not been able to find any better, and I've purchased quite a few headphones in the past year.
They have a very aggressive sound (being DJ headphones I suppose), with a lot of bias toward the low end and some toward the high. The mids are usually pushed back a bit in these headphones, but I've never felt they were being sacrificed. They definately add their own flavor to the music pushed through them, but for a pair of headphones that will most likely be put into a bag and pulled back out while moving about, they are ideal. They are extremely fun to listen to in an isolated setting with a good amp, but also a joy when the bustle of traffic or voices are in the background. They do not have great isolation as they are on-ear headphones - not over-ear - but do not take much volume to drown out your surroundings. In fact I have been consistently surprised to hearing the vinyl warp or background chatter on recordings I've only ever heard on my home speaker system, and this is while riding a crowded downtown bus. Spectacular.
The pictures of these headphones usually seem a bit deceiving in that they look a bit larger than they actually are. They are large enough to sit on the ears, not around them. As such it's a bit more comfortable to wear the headband a bit further back on the top of the head to allow the cups to match the outward angle of your ears.Read more ›
