CIRCUMAURAL CLOSED-BACK DESIGN FOR MAXIMUM ISOLATION, MINIMUM FATIGUE AND NO LEAKAGE

The AKG K72 has a comfortable over-ear design that also helps in providing ample sound attenuation. The design aims at providing exceptional comfort with its lightweight construction. These headphones have a closed back design eliminating sound leakage and a solid, crisp bass. It maximizes the sound isolation by eliminating audio leakage and delivering sound to your ears only. The exceptional level of audio isolation is achieved due to a new acoustic chamber, which sits between the ear cup and the hinge that connects to the headband. AKG's innovative design gives you the freedom to move your head in any direction, without letting sound in or out. With the K72, you can enjoy a private workspace, no matter where you are.

LEATHERETTE EARPADS AND SELF-ADJUSTING HEADBAND FOR EASE AND COMFORT

The headphones have comfortable replaceable leatherette earpads that allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. Breathable, lightweight ear pads encircle your ears, rather than putting pressure on them, thus making your listening experience feel and sound great. To help you get a perfect mix and monitor track levels for several hours, the AKG K72 has a self-adjusting headband. The unique self-adjusting headband automatically creates the perfect fit for you. The exposed headband design keeps the K72 headphones comfortably light, without compromising on the driver size.

Honestly these headphones sound pretty good considering the price.At first audio quality was muddy but after a few hours of Burning In the audio was bright and clear .
i mainly bought these for longer hours of usage and i am totaly satisfied with these. because of over the ear design they are super comfortable.
from my prospective audio- 4 /5 ,( the vocals could have been better)
design - 3.9 /5 ( buildquality is a bit cheap)
comfort - 5 /5
and 5/5 for the guys at headphonezone for quick delivery and service.

A decent headphone for home use

For people like me it unable to serve my purpose all however I wrote an honest review for those are interested to purchases AKG K72 headphone.
The headphone overall performance is decent. this AKG headphone can produce very detailed sound, but not natural. Mid is muddy, high is ok,.bass is quiet good its not excellent with any specific kind of music ... Not made for mixing. Major drawback of the headphone is its design its feel too cheap and boring and annoying … 3m long cable make it costlier and difficult to carry the headband besides it require an external DAC for good performance (without DAC its nothing more than another headphone) is too weak and ugly the speaker Is placed too closely to human ear.
Performance 8.8 (with DAC) and 7 (without DAC)
Design 7
First impression 8

Overall rating 8

Honestly, the best model under ₹4000

Well, I know its base price is ₹4500 or something but I got it for ₹3549 all thanks to Headphonezone. I've used quite a few headphones within this price range but I'm quite sure that these have turned out to be better than all the previous ones. Things that gives these headphones an edge over the others is it's perfect closed back design and a high audio quality with a vast frequency range. Clearity is good, slightly muddy but still, fair enough.
Physically, it's thick single sided wire might outlast the other headphones which usually have a thinner wire. Light weight body and huge ear cups. Definitely go for these if you've got a tight budget.

Hello Anant,

Thank you so much for the words of appreciation. We are glad you liked these headphones. :)
