    AKG K167 reviews

    K167 Tiësto Headphones is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Headphones Take this review with some caution and note that I paid only $50 for this pair. With that said I really do like these headphones. I am hearing sounds in my music I didn't even know were there. The sound is pretty colorful while retaining a nice bass. There is one thing about this headphones I don't like - they are not comfortable. The joints that allow the headphones to fold dig into my scalp and squeeze pretty hard. I find myself having to adjust them frequently. My earsare big as well and get crushed easily while wearing them. If you have small ears, that won't be an issue. Otherwise I still am pretty happy with the pair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AKG K167 Pros and cons with these headphones. First off, great sounding and good build quality for the money. Loud and over ear for background noise reduction. The pros would be : price,build,and weight. Now the cons. Cons are definitely the lower end is not exactly punchy. I used these on my phone, and have mixed with them on my turntables. Sub bass is not very good. Also,the other con here is the lack of a detachable headphone cable/no bag or carrying case for them. Besides the lower end and cable,I'd give them 4 out of 5 stars. Definitely worth the Money and will last!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sounding 'phones that require power I've been listening via headphones since 1969, was a recording engineer in the 90's, love good sound. I've got a Fiio x1 DAP, a Fiio Mont Blanc 12a portable headphone amp and a not so portable, but freakin' awesome Schiit Magni headphone amp.� I was listening to the Sony V-6 cans for decades. Getting 21st century gear to attach to Sony's 1980's cans showed that with enough juice, they could produce some impressive bass and a lot of insight into a mix. I've read reviews of the Tiesto K 167 headphones from AKG, noting that those who love these headphones really love them, some said "meh", some said "not enough bass". A lot said "beware, these are prone to breakage." But the ones that loved the cans went way over the top. I had been listening via the amazing Schiit Magni headphone amp for a week, using the old Sony headphones, reveling in the sonic upgrade. The headphones arrived in five days, as promised. Packaging is as spartan as it gets, a box wrapped in cellophane, phones in protective plastic, a multi-language multi-page pamphlet concerning the warranty. They are comfy, with big cans and thick cushions. Clamping is a little high, but where I uses them I have to take them off frequently. The breakage issue concerns the pivot mechanism that attaches the earspeakers to the headband, not too trusty looking. I plan to be cautious. I also plan to buy a back-up pair. Plugged them into the Magni, sound was far better than the Sonys. Initially, bass was a little weird, but everything was clear against a dark background. Bass was�noticeably�bigger, fatter, rounder and more intense than any headphones I've owned, and with more texture and clarity than any headphone I've heard. The longer the headphones 'cooked', the more everything fell into place. Bass became more natural, the sound was still dark but even more clear. My understanding is that the Teisto K 267 has even more bass. I don't want more bass than I'm getting with the 167s. When I plug the 167s into the Fiio Mont Blanc 12a, the bass is not quite as present, the overall sound is more mechanical. When I plug the Teisto cans directly into the the X1, using its on-board headphone amp, it all falls apart. You might get full level but no guts. I suspect those that complained about the bass with the K 167s plugged them directly into their smartphones and these really aren't those sorts of headphones.� Teisto said these were intended for studio monitoring. In my experience, I don't know of a better headphone for that purpose if one intends to make bass a major element of the mix. The great beauty of these headphones is their balance. Most "audiophile" gear has a suck-out in the lower mid-range. These do not. Most "audiophile" cans don't do this kind of bass. On hip-hop tracks, the bass balance relative to the other elements of the mix makes sense, on [most] Beats [and their offspring, like Skullcandy], they don't. A lot of "audiophile" headphones lack body when reproducing the Orchestra, these headphones do a wonderful job of representing the lower-midrange voices of the orchestra. Vocals are unusually clear, maybe even a little too clear.� My previous reference for headphones were the Stax Earspeakers, compared to these they just don't "do" bass and it's easier to hear into the mix with the K 167s. These are headphones that require good sources and amplification. As such, a high-quality monitor for studio use. If you consider yourself an audiophile and love bass, you want to hear these hooked up to an amp that can pump out at least 2 watts into 32 ohms.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable after a while, good for monitoring The sound is pretty neutral, not a lot of bass and slightly tinny depending on what you're listening to. Over time as my ears set inside the cups, the hard speakers inside begin to press on my ears, making it a bit uncomfortable. They look good, but the sound is nothing special

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones - especially for the price! Very comfortable, with a high quality full-range sound. Build is mostly plastic, so probably not the most durable headphones around. Cord is not detachable, and there is no carrying case/bag, which I don't need anyway. Bur for the price- $50 - nothing else comes close!
