AKG K 271 Mk 2 Studio Headphones Reviews
This was my choice of headphones for my professional home recording studio, after watching for over two months by internet reports (reviews) on pages with specialized expert opinions.
AKG also contacted to inquire.
The AKG K 271 MkII is basically the same as its predecessors, but the design changed a bit. The technical characteristics (which you indicated below) are really good, by which I mean also the response curve at different frequencies of sound, impedance and noise cancellation.
Aesthetically they are strangers to me but honestly I find them very original, especially the bars that are part of the head support.
Technical specifications and interesting facts:
- Manufacturer Warranty: 2 years
- Level of noise cancellation (in studio): -10 db: It is more than enough (checked it with a condenser microphone recorded) so that the microphone does not pick up the slightest noise from the hulls. They also isolated a lot (so we can use them to listen to music and play video games without disturbing).
- Weight: 240 g (without cable) -> 550 g (Pack of original factory packaging)
- Cable off: good idea if we do not want to go sticking hitches that can break, this is also a sign that these headphones will last us many years, also because we can buy the cable separately.
- At 1kHz Impedance: 55 ohms. More than enough if you do not have a preamp if you want to use headphones or listen to music on mp3. Basically a lower impedance is less need to raise the volume so that we understand, have increased sensitivity to sound.
- Cable Length: 3m and 5m cable supplied in the second package (a type of cable with loops)
- Size of handset (for a single hull): large, covers the entire ear.
- Type headset complete (around the ear).
- Type of driver (from English): dynamic.
- Sealing acoustic (sound leakage for evirtar).
- Sensitivity: 91 dB / mW, 104 dB / V
- Frequency: 16 Hz to 28.000 more than enough to not lose any detail in either low or high frequencies. Besides the frequency response shows that provide a neutral sound (which is what you\'re looking for in a recording studio).
- Coating of helmets: Like cable, it comes standard with two different coatings: an imitation leather (very soft and quality) and a \"velvet\"
- Connector: XLR type mini coated in gold (as used in helmets professionals) with a mini-jack adapter jack recuertos both in gold.
- They have a really advanced technology akg and above all improved, and which is used in the old AKG 271. They have a large transducer which is what makes a great vibrating membrane is that it will give us a really good sound. The highest sound quality is not achieved until they are used for many hours, the membrane needs to be flexible with the vibrations caused by sound.
- Head: self.
- Technology Varimotion. (AKG)
- They have a feature that mutes the helmets once removed from the head to avoid unnecessary leakage of sound into the microphone (perfect for recording vocals in the studio).
- La banda self makes these headphones are really comfortable also avoids pressure on the ears.
- The light weight of these helmets may carry on for hours without muscle fatigue or neck Sifra (checked myself)
- The coating of hulls makes them very pleasant to the touch and soft to the ear.
- The mere fact that we are detachable so many years of use of helmets.
- The length of the cables is perfect because we can move freely in the room in which we avoid and paste pulls it.
- The sound is really nice and professional, there is no power or serious or acute, but the treble sounds like silk ... this is a great advantage when recording in the studio, and if we boost the bass There is the option of using an equalizer.
- The contents of the package is quite attractive in my opinion. Two detachable cables and two different coatings, in addition to the quality of helmets for the price ... you can not ask much more.
- Build quality is superb, they weigh little, but feels very sturdy, well are not the typical events in china (which may or may not salirte good), are made in Austria.
What is CAN YOU?
Especially for recording and editing, and mixing in my opinion but also provides the budget to buy some good monitors.
Also, I used to play, changing the equalizer a little sound (a little boosting the bass and treble) with very good results. Anyway that\'s a matter of taste.
To listen to music on your computer and the mp3. Soon you will notice if you get some 271 Mk II that what sets them apart from other helmets, the depth and nuances of sound it provides.
And if you dare, and no matter how you look on the street, listening to music while you\'re away from home.
These helmets definitely worthwhile, have their disadvantages compared to its competitors nearby Auido Technica, Sennheiser, beyerdinamyc, sonny ... but in general, valuing the price of the package, the amount of extras that have separate parts, the quality construction, sound quality ... is the best option, at least it was for me after searching and studying the subject muuuuuuucho. Furthermore you know that in principle a high-end brand as recognized as AKG, especially in the professional sound, you can not wrong.
PRICE: You pay what it values, and have AKG warranty.
I hope that I\'ve helped you.
These headphones have the good sound quality you would expect from AKG. The closed design and auto cut-off when you remove them from your head give you very good protection from spill. They are much more comfortable than the older AKGs that I used previously, having a lighter build and a choice of two types of padding.
I bought these headphones to use for electronic drums and multitracking purposes, and the sound quality is excellent - more bass than I expected (they\'re not entirely neutral) and generally a comfortable fit. The isolation isn\'t quite as good as expected as they fit more on my ears than over them but it\'s good enough to drown out most stick noise at moderate volumes.
I previously had Beyer DtT770M\'s and Shure E2C in ears, both of which were better at isolation, but far worse in sound quality.
On the whole, recommended.
