AKG K 26 P

Discontinued
MSRP $56.30
This product is no longer available for purchase.

AKG has a winner with this little inexpensive K26p headphone.... Getting big, impactful bass response in a headphone this small is a mighty stride in the world of portable-application cans. The upper treble response is definitely rolled-off in the highs for more demanding listeners but the overall musical detail resolution remains decent and fairly punchy for a headphone at this low pricepoint.

AKG has a winner with this little inexpensive headphone.... Getting big, impactful bass response in a headphone this small is a mighty stride in the world of portable-application cans. The upper treble response is definitely rolled-off in the highs for more demanding listeners but the overall musical detail resolution remains decent and fairly punchy for a headphone at this low pricepoint. While the mid-ranges remain a bit recessed in the overall tonal signature, the bass response presents an amazingly strong, clear, and full-sounding bottom-end for such a tiny headphone. The AKG K-26P ambient seal from external noise is also pretty darn good --you will likely have a hard time hearing the telephone ring right in front you even when listening at mild volumes! These would be a good choice for commuters & travelers seeking a nice degree of isolation and good sound in an inexpensive, small-sized headphone. The K-26P is also a great headphone candidate for active outdoorsy types, exercise junkies, and students on a budget wanting bumpin' sound directly from their Mp3 or other portable player device without requiring the use of a dedicated headphone amp. Not only are these one of the better small-sized classic/modern-rock and jazz-funk/hip-hop headphones, but they are also very well-priced. Can it possibly get any better?.... Yep. When you put them on!

This headphone folds up into a tidy little wad that can be tucked into a velvety zippered pouch that's included in the package. The K-26P is a lightweight and very efficient headphone with a 3-D axis metal sliding headband [for sizing adjustments] which features earpieces that spin around and fold inward toward the headband so you can listen with one ear if you have to keep your head on swivel mode. The earpads are little pleather-covered donuts -- very nice and quite comfortable for such a small supra-aural design. It has a "Y" headphone cord, about 4.5ft long, terminated in an right-angled 1/8" (3.5mm) mini-plug. Excellent 2-year manufacturer's product warranty remains standard on all AKG headphones.
