satisfied... better sound stage than m20x. vocals r bit smooth. m20x has better clarity than k52. both r equally detailed, but m20x highlights small details, which k52 doesn't. instruments sounds better than m20x . ear pads don't seem durable. if you want clarity, then go to m20x,but you prefer airy, studio kinda sounding experience, than pick this beauty!
After ploughing through an overwhelming amount of reddit threads on budget and high-end audiophile cans, it came into light that AKG manufactures over-the-top headphones at spectacularly low prices. Bought from Amazon as HPZ didn't have it at that time (nor now).
There's some trivial sound leakage, kind of like a semi-open back, but not many by your side will complain. This makes the soundstage very wide, and the instrument separation and radius quite magnificent. You can 'see' Gilmour and Waters at different locations when you hear them. Steve vai will blow your head off your neck.
The clarity is incredible, and frequency response is surprisingly leaning towards the neutral- no sibilance or sharp high-mids, nor punchy bass. The mids are a bit recessed though, and I don't like that part. Nevertheless, it still is quite an ideal budget headphone for the sound quality. There is sometimes a little distortion in the bass though, especially if you decide on EQ'ing the sound.
Oh, the comfort. How is this even possible? These are the most comfortable cans I've worn, completely over-ear. I don't even notice them for hours. ATH-m50's etc fail terribly in comparison to these. I've tried m30,m40,m50 - none of these compare, even in sound quality( or say they're comparable but different). The sound is crisp,clean and no part of the frequency range sounds noticeably muddy. The clamping force is also alright, the headband is non-adjustable though.
The impedance is low (~33 ohms) and thus you can use it on your phone too, and no AMPs needed. But fold-ability and portability is definitely an issue. Even keeping them on the neck will cause discomfort. The wire is non-interchangeable and quite long(3m). So, you'll have to coil it and keep it in your pocket.
Conclusion would be that if you're willing to spend no more than 3000 rupees, look no further, these are the best you can get for even a much higher price. The next cans I'm eyeing are the DT770 pro 80 ohms.
I am professional sound engineer and daily user of akg k271 mk2 , bought them before three years, i bought k52 as gift for someone, these headphones are good for media listening purpose, i am always fan of build quality of akg, they are lightweight and durable, cover whole ear thats wat i love abt akg so your ears wont start paining because of pad pressure, as a sound engineer if i will compare this with k271 (this comparison is unrealistic i know ,but just an example) , they are no way near to a quality which i am listening from 3 years on k271 , but thats not an issue ,as these are consumer headphones and serves the purpose better , people who love accurate and Crystal clear bass should go for this, people who just want to hear crazy bass and nothing else dont go for this,
These headphones sounds confused between the mid-high range ,
But as akg specialty unlike other headphones you can wear this for hours,as they are so well built.
So final result is, if you were listening other brands till now and feeling to hear or upgrade to something with balanced ,smooth and crisp sound at low cost these are good starting point , bassheads dont buy this, its a good consumer media listening headphones with good build at low cost.
Very good sound quality.A good product for the price
If you want good Boombastic headphone in cheap price than GO FOR IT. AKG-K52 is seroiusly good for Bass lover. :)
Balanced sound, lightweight but a bit uncomfortable to hang around the neck.
