AKG K271 Studio Closed Headphones

No longer available at zZounds
For onstage and studio use. High noise attenuation.

The extremely popular K 270 Studio headphones have unfailingly proven to be a reliable tool over the years. The new K 271 Studio, while providing the same performance as the K 270 Studio, is much lighter and easier to use, and still provides a natural, pristine sound. The closed-back, circumaural earphones provide maximum attenuation of high ambient noise. The K 271 Studio headphones are also ideal for all applications where no sound must leak from the headphones. The headphones switch off automatically when taken off. Since this feature prevents headphone signals from spilling over into an open microphone it is highly appreciated by recording studio, live sound, TV sound, and broadcast engineers.

Love the clarity and accuracy of represenation. I can listen to my mix on these and know what it will sound like coming out of the JBL studio monitors like no other. They are also light and durable and can be easily taken on location. I wish the headband didn't readjust itself, but that is being nit-picky. These are the best closed-monitor headphones I've encountered and have since become a personal favourite.

Simply the best headphones I've encountered, either at home or the studio. The accuracy and space is amazing, I actually took them off the first couple of times I was using them to make sure it wasn't coming through the monitors (they are that detailed and spacious.) They've since become the headphone of choice in the work environment, (they were originally purchased just for DAW work but keep finding uses in mixing environments!)

Its handy to have a detachable chord, and the screw adaptor is nice to quickly switch between gear. The auto-off is nifty as well and has come in handy more than once. The sliding-headband mechanism is handy, but I wish it didn't occasionally re-adjust itself in use (you hear the rubber mechanical movement and it can occasionally be annoying.) All in all though, a somewhat unique and definitely useful feature set!

Solid through and through, seriously, I would buy them again just for thier durability. They've survived numerous (pretty read more much daily) falls, the cord's been mangled, tugged, stepped on, pulled out of gear, ect. They always come through and look good as new. They have proven amazingly durable, more so than any other headphone I've ever used and as said above, don't show the damage they've taken. The Sound Quality is fantastic, its spacious, and compared to the studio monitors, highly accurate, moreso than Sennheisers that tended to exaggerate one aspect over another. The clarity and space presented to one's ears is unbelievable.

Simply put, I sought the best monitoring headphones and have come to rely on the AKG-271's in numerous situations from the studio to live mixing applications to video monitoring all of which they shine through wonderfully. They have allowed a whole new level of clarity possible an environment neccessitating individual monitoring. Plus they feel great and are thus far indestructable.
