What customers say about "Features"
AKG K72 High Performance Closed-Back Monitoring Headphones
  • Sound quality is first class and a really involving experience. I can't think of anything negative so....please try them!
  • Build quality is good, especially in light of the price and they are super comfortable to wear.
  • Sound quality wise, they are as expected. quite neutral, but with great frequency response and clarity.
  • Bass is deep and punchy, but not overpowering and boomy. Mids and highs are nice and crisp, but ever so slightly tinny.
  • Not very comfortable or sensitive. Need a fairly high volume to drive to an acceptable volume.
AKG K52 High Performance Closed-Back Monitoring Headphones
  • These headphones are nice and light. Due to the self-adjustable headband, the headset doesn't really need any cushioning.
  • It has a self-adjustable headband which I was originally sceptical about, but in reality it's a really good idea. The set just relaxes into a nice position.
  • Can sit for hours without issues and sound quality is also very good.
  • I do like how the 'L' and 'R' indicators are located in the ear cups, and they're nice and big so you always know which way round the set goes.
  • The sound provided by the 40mm drivers is excellent with a very good bass response and clarity.
