MY GOD!!! I have just received my headphones! I have been putting them through there initial paces straight from the box, after just 30 mins I have had to come here to let you know my experience so far!!! I researched my buy for a long long time before I bought these, and yes this was based upon hours and hours of study and looking at amazing reviews, this however would not cloud in anyway my opinion on the product that landed with me about an hour ago. I have over the years owned very very good sennheiser headphones and I am a fan of BOTH totally flat and equalized music and sound !!! Right this is the track I chose to first test this set of headphones....Jean-Michel Jarre, Vince Clarke - Automatic, Pt. 1 Okay so first things first un equalized sound. These headphones are 100% flat, in the very best way that headphones can be!!! The sound reproduction with no equalisation is simply BREATHTAKING!!! every detail you can imagine (and some you couldn't have!) from the very lows through the mids and very highs is there......... without exception!!!!! Remember that this unequalised sound is EXACTLY the way it was mastered and produced in the studio!!!!! (this unequalised sound may come as a disappointment to some
that are used to either or both bass or treble heavy headphones or speakers however to (for me anyway!) was an absolute joy to hear, this
set of headphones reproduce this sound so faithfully, smoothly and with such depth right across the sound spectrum !!! Right now for the best bit (for me)as a reference my previous headphones for bass heavy was Sony MDRXB450AP (I cannot sing the praise of these enough for
those wanting a clear base heavy quality sound with NO equalisation !!!) However......NOTHING could have prepared my ears for the sound
reproduces on the AKG K92s WITH equalisation........OMG!!! My sound card allows me to equalise from 33-16k in 10 steps I pumped up the
lows and the highs and took out the middle in a wave form that I like and really suits my ears....OMG all I can say is BEYOND
!!!!! I know this track inside and out..every detail...well I thought I did till I heard it through theses headphones (that goes for the unequalised
setting too!!!) Sound is such a joy when it is quality sound, sorry for going on but I really wanted to share my very early experience of the
I'm back, to annoy you some more...this is after 20 plus hours of use and testing
I really do think that these headphone should be taken of the market as soon as is possible, the chances of them gracing the ears of some sound quality unappreciative person is just too high ! ! ! Unfortunately I can see that this has already taken place from some of the reviews I have read on here! Allow me to take about a few things other than the sound quality, which I would like to come back to. The build quality and
comfort on these headphones is amazing !!! Firstly comfort....at fist I was a little sceptical about the self adjusting strap, I can tell you that it is
engineered and manufactured in the most ingenious way, it fits perfectly every time, you never need to make any adjustment at all, its done
and perfectly overtime by this engineering masterpiece. Further more, once you have placed it on your head and the adjustment is automatically made, there is no sense of it been there at all! this brings me to the next point, overall comfort. The weight of these headphones defies all logic, the earphones have a tilt mechanism that rotated a full 360 degrees, so they are always placed perfectly over the ears. The combination of all these factors is that after about an hour of wearing them, you completely forget that you are even wearing headphones at all ! The ear pads are amazing, very very comfortable but unlike many other headphones with the foam etc which dose not look longer term durable these are solid yet manage to achieve to ne totally 100% comfortable, this design I am sure also helps with the excellent sound isolation of these headphones combined with them been closed bake design. I'm starting to think that AKG have recovered some alien technology, the two very thin bars that stretch all the way over from each side, are VERY strong metal of some kind, further more, you will notice that the sound signal and power comes in on one side.....I have looked at them for ages tying to work out HOW AKG have managed to get the signal and power across to the other speaker!!! and have come to the conclusion that is either AKG wizardry or like I said before some kind of alien technology. Let me put it this way, I have studied the deign in detail to try and work this out, the signal and power HAS to be transported THOUGH theses two off gold bars at he top and down the sides however the bars are so thin I cannot get my head around how they could get the wire for this INSIDE the cable, it would be impossible because it is so thin, the only other way I can see them achieving this is by using the WHOLE of these two metal (or whatever else they are) bars, if this is the case then the power and the signal ate been transported with no isolation, but straight through the two totally exposed bars....,wither way, or rather whatever way AKG have managed to do this (which baffles me every time I pick them up) it is engineering and design excellence of the very highest order!!!
Right...back to the sound, please remember as I said before these headphones are totally 100% flat (in the best possible way!) if you want a heavy bass set of headphones with no equalisation jog on. However like I said before I like both flat and equalised sound. I LOVE having the option too choose EITHER depending on the music or my mood at the time, here's the REALLY amazing thing about these headphone...they will do BOTH!! An example ( I love all styles of music by the way!) This piece... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNU-XAZjhzA with a totally flat unequalised setting, is just exquisite !!! No I mean REALLY amazing. The best way I can describe the quality of these headphones, is to say what ever piece you listen to however demanding it is, its as if you have headphones on that have millions of driver in them, each one specifically putting out its own individual frequency right across the full sound spectrum. The result of this, is the sound never becomes muddled or confused at all even when driving a very bass heavy track. An example of this is one of my go to tracks to test for very very deep and loud bass response...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4o-HoICS08&index=3&list=PL757B4703775657B2 from 4:10 to 4:50 in this track, I have NEVER heard a single set of speakers or headphones cope with the volume and depth of this bass.......UNTILL NOW !!! My AKG K92s were able to take this track and deliver a 100% unflawed delivery to my total amazement and astonishment, for the record this was AFTER I had equalised the sound to the very highest bass level my graphic would allow, to say I'm impressed would be an understatement, after waiting for over 30 years I am now able to hear this track as it was intended with no distortion! Personally (and I know this is not for everyone wanting heavy bass out of the box!) I LOVE been able to CHOOSE myself if I want to hear something totally flat as it was recorded, OR whether to indulge myself in a sumptuous wall of bass and sparklingly enhanced high notes. If you have access to an inbuilt graphic equaliser on whatever devise you are listening on, you will have unfettered access to both of these world with these headphones!
To sum up....
Sound quality INCREDIBLE (both unequalised and equalised!!!)
Build quality SECOND TO NONE
Oh by the way....they take "will.i.am - Scream & Shout ft. Britney Spears" chews it up and asks for more ! ! ! (With a heavy bass leaning
Since my review I took it up another notch.....
I'm now running them through a Marantz amp and a Kenwood duel 9 band graphic equaliser.....the sound is just unbelievable with my preferred graphic setting.....
The amazing thing about these studio headphones is the bass is VERY flat without equalisation but I just cannot believe how much depth and punch they drive out after equalisation .....it is quite literally head and body shaking ! ! !
Worth every penny I spent on them !!!
There are a joy to pick up and just put on every day!!!
