What customers say about "Size & Weight"
AKG K872 Master Reference Studio Headphones - New
  • It is a darn sight lighter than full-size planar headphones such as the Hifiman HE1000 and Audeze.
  • Super comfortable and light enough to wear all day. Difference between these and 'gaming headsets' is night and day.
  • The headphones are very comfortable for long listening as they are very light and the clamp isn't tight it's just right for me, I don't need to adjust them at all.
  • Extremely good set of drivers! They feel so light on your head I almost forget they’re there.
  • The plastic design makes it feel so light and comfortable, you won't even notice you're wearing headphone after long use.

  • They are light, comfortable, compact (for over-ear) and don’t look flashy or expensive.
  • The comfort factor of these were great. and really light as if wearing nothing!
  • Firstly, the build quality is excellent for home use and they are super light and comfortable.
  • They are light, and don't have a tendency to squash either my ears or the side of the head.
  • They are so light you forget you are wearing them once the music starts.

What customers say about "Features"
AKG K872 Master Reference Studio Headphones - New
  • I can hear all sorts of subtle details especially for music instruments. An excellent headphone(tool) for my daily work.
  • It’s a peach to drive off almost any source, excellent build quality, and fantastic mids.
  • The build quality of the K872 is excellent and very durable looking. The plastic cups are accented with silver aluminum rings both inner and outer which gives it a bit of pop in visual appeal.
  • The K872 has a single entry LEMO EGG series 3pin Mini XLR system splendidly integrated onto the bottom of the left gimbal rather than directly into the cup.
  • Cable is bulky and heavy compared to consumer products, a bit hard too.
beyerdynamic T5p (2nd Generation) High-End Portable Headphones
  • The sound stage is nice for a closed back and sounds superb for vocals and blues, folk and rock band instrumentals, guitars and violins sound lovely.
  • Super comfortable to use for listening sessions of well over two hours of continuous music listening.
  • Build quality fantastic as expected from a German manufacturer.
  • Amazing pair of headphone that is perfectly drivable by mobile devices and when used with my chord mojo, it enters the next level with detailed sounds and punchy& crisp bass.
  • Fabulous sound quality. I’ve used them with a balanced cable and a HIBy R6 which seem to go well together.
