It's quite simply a premium product that comes with an affordable price tag. Our favorite feature has to be the accuract sound quality and wide frequency response, which both make them a good option for studio monitoring. Audiophiles will not just be impressed by the quality of sound, but will also love how comfortable they are to wear, we think.

  It's an advanced product that benefits from the decades of experience AKG has. The components inside these headphones are very high quality, with our team being particularly impressed by the Varimotion diaphragms. Considering how reasonable the price is, this product offers superb value for money, we think.
