If you need a good, cheap pair of headphones look no further.
Budget headphones from AKG have had a long and somewhat venerable history with Factory Sound.
From the days of the old faithful K55 back in the 1990s, through to the superbly performing replacement K77 throughout the last decade, AKG ‘cheap, closed’ headphones have been the first choice for tracking vocals on a tight budget.
We think of this newest version K52 as inexpensive ‘disposable’ headphones for those sessions with extra performers, however they are ridiculously good value for a solid performing closed headphone.
And the blurb via AKG: “Whether you’re monitoring vocals or tracking a bass line, the self-adjusting headband and lightweight design will provide hours of comfort. Designed by the company whose mics and headphones have helped create some of the world’s most iconic recordings, the durable K52 headphones deliver great sound wherever your music takes you”
Our summary: They’re cheap, they work, and they’ll last. Get some, end of story.
