Rated 5 out of 5 by Kërcim from Comfortable. Effective. Durable. Affordable! I bought them during Black Friday 2015 when I think they were 10% off. The flagship store in NYC has friendly staff and the headphones themselves are great. I had old AKG DJ headphones and they broke. These were a great replacement. Perfect for playing live sets, I like that AKG includes the adapter and I like the design where the size adjustment is because my old AKGs snapped because of the old design.
