AKG K 301
The AKG K 301 are good all-around, entry-level headphones. They are reasonably accurate and detailed for the price. With a clean, uncolored sound, they are also quite balanced. They are lightweight and comfortable—great for the passive listener who doesn't want to break the bank for a good headphone. They work out of a portable, but are happiest with an amp.
Along with good sound, the K 301 offer admirable construction and comfort. They have a spring-loaded headband that automatically adjusts to your head for a lightweight, unrestrained fit. They have large, padded earcups that are airy and comfortable. Their cord is straight and attaches to one earpiece, eliminating double cord tangling. They are terminated to a mini and include a 1/4 inch adapter.
