I own AKG k181s and let me tell you, spend your money on a better pair of headphones, you could probably get the k171s for cheaper. These headphones are marketed as being rugged but after 3 weeks of owning them the right ear broke off. I handled them with precise care and they broke when one day I just picked them up and right as I'm about to put them on CRACK and I get smacked in the ear with a jagged edge of the axle that broke. Biggest waste of money. Also if you don't heed my warning yes the D2 will power them.(Edit):Forgot to add, that base boost switch, the one with large club small club written on it does nothing. Yeah, I took them apart after they broke and the switch was connected to absolutely nothing.

Then you probably got a faulty pair. I tested them in a store and the switch certainly did change the sound.

Bought em at a store. Now that I take a second look at them yes they are fake. The AKG logo is just wrong...
