The AKG 450 are under £40 on Amazon UK at the moment...They got "Headphone product of the year 2011" from the usually trustworthy What Hi-Fi? and generally excellent reviews everywhere. |
I think they were listed at launch at £150, and they're possibly the most comfortable headphones I've ever used,. I use Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro's for making music, which are superb sounding but slowly..crush..your..head. The AKG's you wouldn't even know you had them on.
You can't really go wrong with Grado's, but for the money these are stupidly good.
Be warned though - after urging my guitar students to buy these for Christmas instead of some £200 Beats bassboxes, out of ten who bought them two sent them back because of faults. They also bleed a lot, so not really suited for those bus/tube journeys.
