Not a professional headphone

These are bass canons not fit for studio use. The build is poor. VERY inconsistent and spotty. Not for audiophiles or audio engineers. This is more of a "beats by akg" headphone and it's really disappointing considering how good the old K553 pro was.

AKG K371 Review - Closed-back benchmark headphone for 2020?

Okay, so dynamics was a category where I was definitely a little underwhelmed by how the K 371 performed they. They don't really have a very strong sense of punch and slam. They don't have as much energy and weight as I would like them to and compared to some other headphones in its price range

Initial muddy sound. Break in period. Not for audiophiles. But still good headphones.

One sentence review: Give them a chance to break in. These are my favorite "walking around" headphones. They're comfortable (still a bit sweaty in hot weather), and durable. Sound is pretty good (still not as good at my AKG k702's, but I can't walk around with the K702's, as they're open back.) Woul...

AKG K371 & K361 Review | New Cheap Closed Back Benchmarks

But I, like the the K 361 a lot, but I'm just going to keep the K 371 as my cheap and that's to say the on cheap. Portable closed back headphone that I can use anywhere because it looks pretty pretty decent to me, like I don't think you'd get any weird looks wearing this in public. It doesn't look like too professional or too goofy or anything

Are these actually AKG headphones?

AKG: I love your products, but maybe you can stop requesting the deletion of people's unfavorable reviews and...and I don't know...maybe read some of them and learn from the mistakes of the K361/371? Maybe release a better replacement product? Like the K362 We're Sorry Those Last Ones Really Sucked ...

Great closed back headphones for natural sound and fun listening.

I didn't buy these for professional work but I wanted budget friendly headphones that presented the detail of my music and were fun to listen to. I bought the following headphones and compared them to the K371. AGK K361 - Flatter and not as fun to listen to Phillips SHP9500 - Grainy and flat with fo...

If you have the wrong head shape, these will not work for you

If AKG gave just a few more degrees of tilt freedom to these headphones, I'd give them 5 stars easily, but sadly they didn't. If I put these on like any other pair of headphones, there's a gap at the bottom of the earcups that leaks sound, and with it, most of the lower frequencies and a lot of the ...

Too many issues. Don't settle; just get the K371 (non-BT variant)

NOTE: I have since switched to the AKG K371 (non-BT variant) and they resolve nearly every issue I had with these. These are an interesting set of cans. I'm just going to go straight into this analysis: - These headphones have a surface material that scratches VERY easily - they have an annoying min...

Great headphones. Read for some advice

Material quality and comfort are great. It's very light weight. I'm one to watch many reviews prior to purchasing, but if you're reading this trying to get clues about the sound quality then allow me to prepare you - the bass is pretty mild if you're looking for some heavy bass listening. The K371 h...
