What customers say about "Size & Weight"
AKG K240 STUDIO Professional Semi-Open, Over-Ear Headphones
  • They're also light and very comfortable, everything so clean and sparkling clear to the extent that a faint hum is clearly audible on a "professional" recording.
  • It's very comfortable to wear, one of the most comfortable headphones I've tried. It is very light and does not strongly clamp your head. It feels like you could wear it all day.
  • Build and design is fairly good. It doesn't creak however and feels generally well made - it's just light.
  • I am pleasantly surprised of the build quality and the detachable cord.
  • They fit very comfortably over the head, and the soft pads are nice and large so they completely cover the ears (my ears are pretty big!).
Sennheiser HD 598 Special Edition Over-Ear Headphones
  • The size adjustment has a good range, and it locks into place well even after three years of use, no slipping.
  • My large-headed friend tried them on and agreed that they were extremely comfortable, which is hard for him to find given the size of his noggin.
  • There is a wide range of adjustment on the headband size, so it should fit heads of all sizes.
  • The headphone is light weight, and the ear cups are very comfortable.
  • The weight is non-offensive. They are neither featherlite nor weighty.
  • The weight of the cord cracked the headphone jack on my laptop.

What customers say about "Features"
AKG K240 STUDIO Professional Semi-Open, Over-Ear Headphones
  • Nothing seems strained, harsh or pushed with these headphones, providing an astonishingly clean and level response.
  • Nice flat response that have improved my mixes by leaps and bounds.
  • These AKG K240's just sound great across the whole audio frequency spectrum.
  • Sound is extremely good, especially for the price. It is exactly what it says on the tin - balanced and accurate.
  • At 55ohms impedance it's fairly easily driven. It's comfortably loud at half volume on low amplification setting on a Fii0 E10.
Sennheiser HD 598 Special Edition Over-Ear Headphones
  • They have a good range of frequency response .
  • Great frequency range, pure to the source material, wonderful openness!
  • These babies provide satisfaction across the entire frequency range... highs to lows and everywhere in between.
  • The model has lower impedance so it's great for using it without an headphone amplifier, for laptops, mp3 players, smartphones.
  • The have a higher 50 ohm impedance compared to the norm of 32 ohms so you might have trouble getting the volume you want out of certain devices.
