Now is the time to buy AKG cans

Public service announcement for all my European heads. AKG Studio Headphones are currently massively discounted at Thomann.

For closed cans I heartily recommend the AKG K271 MK II at €69 (from €160). These automagically turn off when you remove them from your head, so no leakage in the studio. They last forever and have replaceable cables.

For more clarity, the open AKG K-701 are currently as low as €103 (from €229). Not for bass mavens but amazing otherwise.

AKG K-712 Pro are incrementally better and have stronger bass response. Now €199 (from €399). Currently my go-to cans for music listening and mixing.

My comprehensive article on headphones goes into other options.

I am currently testing some Ollo Audio headphones from Slovenia, so stay tuned for a review of those.
