Part 3: A Review of Four Compact Sealed Headphones: The AKG K81DJ.

We've sold many hundreds of the AKG K81DJ to hip-hoppers and urban music lovers the world over. Looks like there's no reason for them to be unhappy with their purchase.

Rock on![/caption] There were no surprises when we auditioned these great little headphones as they are one of our very favorite headphones to recommend. Utilitarian grey rubberized good looks go along well with these durable headphones' mission of choice: to bring happnin' tunes to college and high school students. Their folding feature works very well, though they're slighly larger than the FC700A or PX 200II when folded. And they're brilliantly durable and will survive term after term of backpack travel between dorm and library.

This is a very good headphone for taking a bit of the edge off harsh recordings and providing music that can be listened to hour after hour without fatigue. We really like these cans, and recommend them highly for the urban music listener.
