What customers say about "Size & Weight"
AKG K171 MKII Channel Studio Headphones
  • It feels cheap but it is very light weight. The audio is ok at best.
  • They are great sounding. Would buy another pair. They are so light and fit so snug I love it.
  • They are also lightweight, which is good. Sound great and look awesome.
  • Weight ideal for long listening. After 2 hours, I didn't feel any discomfort.
  • These headphones are made in China and are built in lightweight flimsy plastic. After approximately 2 weeks the left cap broke off while my wife was removing the headphones.

What customers say about "Features"
AKG K171 MKII Channel Studio Headphones
  • Great sound and fit. Keeps the music in and the noise out. My drums sound fantastic as does music sources. Excellent sound stage.
  • Headphones are crystal clear without overpowering bass. Voices really stand out.
  • They have a really flat frequency response compared to the audio technica M50 which seem to hype the low end, which is ok if you're just using for listening.
  • The frequency range of these headphones is amazing. I can clearly hear both low and high frequencies without any distortion.
  • Both cables that come with headphones are very long and get tangled up all the time. You can also easily damage them.
