    I've been offered these at a price that I'm finding it very difficult to resist (£30) from a friend who got them as an unwanted gift. I know AKG is a good manufacturer, but am not completely familiar with headphones. If anyone has these, are they any good?

    If not, can some of the audio enthusiasts take a look at the specs and tell me what they think? http://www.akg.com/personal/,pcp_id,173,pid,107,_psmand,1,show,specs.html&:K 450 :)

    Cheers,

    check what the normal price is. if you like them then get them. i personally dont like small on ear head phones like those. i find them uncomfortable and they dont sound as good or isolate noise well.

    but its all on your preference.

    I took a quick look on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/AKG-450-Premium-Foldable-Headphone/dp/B0028N78C0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1293737464&sr=8-1 and other than you getting a great price, they seem to be a good set of 'phones. I haven't tried these in particular but I like the feel of small headphones on my ears. The reviews all seem to lean towards these being good portable headphones for mp3 players, laptops ect... My vote will always be Sennheiser 280 pro's in the $100 or less price range though. Killer phones.

    Depends on their use. Critical listening? Probably not

    Mp3's? Laptop? They'll do just fine.
