Default AKG K77 headphones review.

I have a set of sennheiser hd201`s in the house for use with my 4gb zen , they sound decent and have excellent resistance of only 24 ohms , but unfortunately their sensitivity is a modest 102db and to use them with the zen , you simply have to max out the volume to 100%

A seller on ebay uk was selling brand new in box akg k77s as shown in the link above for 29 delivered, for some reason this site wouldnt let me enter a link that would post a pic of the headphones ( anybody explain why this is so ? ) The AKG`s have a resistance of 32 ohms but also an excellent sensitivity of 115 db, more than enough for using with a zen player.

Build quality is 1st class, cable exits from left side only and will withstand a lot of abuse . Its a circumaural design and you would hardly know you were wearing them , this makes longer listening sessions extremely easy. Bass response is excellent and avoids the overbloated and exaggerated lower end that some headphones produce, a bass boost is not required. Vocals are clear and sweet and sit very well in the mix also. I listen to a lot of jazz guitar, female vocals accompanying acoustic instruments and classic rock such as ronnie montrose or pink floyd, the akg`s dont miss a beat with any of them.

Totally recommended and a headphone set that shames many more expensively priced units.
