AKG Acoustics K 270S Headphones

4.3/5 (10 Reviews)


Product Description

The patented Parabolic Transducer Array in the K 270 S has two optimized transducers in each earcup, both precisely configured in a tuned enclosure to focus sound waves at the entrance to the ear. The result is a dramatically increased perception of spaciousness, extremely accurate response, and no audible distortion at output levels far beyond the capability of single transducer headphones.

Bottom Line:   
I have owned a pair of K270 for several years now and i have always appreciated the neutral sound and the absolute lack of distortion.

The K270 needs a powerful amplifier.

I have used them both as a sound engineer at concerts and home at they do the job every time, but i had to dispose some records because the sound quality was too poor on them, and my speakers (they have almost same characteristics as K270)

About the Bass. If there a lack of bass in the K270, the record contains no bass.

But don't purchase any Hi-Fi equipment unless you have tried it for a period and like it personally.

Bottom Line:   
The sound is clear, no strong bass, no strong high just extremly neutral.
You can hear things clear as you wouldn't with others (e.g. groaning of a chair in a classic orchestra, finest deatils in voices, ...)

I'm owning the AKG K270 since 18 years and I didn't really care about them - they still look like new even I use them every day.

One of my best parts I've bought.

Bottom Line:   
I have a AKG K270 Studio and I like it very much.
I really love good sounding audio. No extra bass or high tones in it.
This headphone has that!
I am a musician and play piano, keyboard, synth.
I need a headphone like this in my home-studio!

BEST!

Bottom Line:   
Out from the box, this earphones is the clearest, neutral, most detailed set i've ever owned. I have Mission 783 speakers and an all-Arcam set-up and listening to this baby was as enjoyable to listening to my speakers. I plugged it directly to my Arcam AVR100 headphone output and man was I in heaven! If you love honest presentations of recordings and looking for a honest-sounding headphone, the search is over.

Bottom Line:   
i can asure that people dislike this headphones are just ordinary listener who expect boom bass and think that boom bass is awesome... =)

the 270S is very-very honest sounding, its true that its a bit 'bass shy' becouse of the "flat" factor- but thats why its very accurate and help you judge the mixing process besides the monitor...

i definately think that if you buy the 270s for listening you might wont like it or might be dissaponted ( but i love it becouse of the 'honest' factor-- too bad the badly recorded CD would sounds more awefull in this), but if you do sound enginering, tracking and use it in studio environtment this one a true champion =)

i even considering to get another same pair since i love it so much and its been dicontinued and replaced by the 271 which dont have the dual driver in each ear cup.

if you're a bass maniac this product will dissapoint you..

you dont haer bass... you feel bass!!!! 'careful with your judge...

btw, this headphones need long burn in period... but its worthed since the sounds even more tranparent after the burn in.
