Possibly as a result of these Unfavourable reviews, these head phones are available at a discount . Ie got a set a few days ago from Currys at 98 euro , ...so at least 50% discount on the original price. I have a number of different headphones and ear pieces at this stage. , Including Sony 1000XM3 NC and two pairs of Sony MRD1R and MDR1RA , and a MJ2 from Michell and Johnson . I tend to pick up bargains , whether I need them or not
the AKG 600 is an excellent set of phones. extremely comfortable and extremely pleasant to listen to I find them better as headphones than the X1000Ms , but it is true that their sound cancellation is poorer. They are a very worthy alternative to the MDR 1R... The sound is different , if anything slightly fuller , but certainly not inferior. so at the 100 euro bracket, they are excellent value.
