Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Excellent detail, clarity and comfort.

 

I bought these over 18 months ago now from the Solihull store and at first I found them to be a little light on the bottom end, however after a week or so of use, they warmed up. To further improve this I paired it with a Fiio K17 which allowed for...

Exactly what I wanted

 

Been looking on and off for some decent headphones. Popped into Richer as was in the area and spoke with the very helpful assistant. Explained what I was looking for and he demo'd the headphones. Was immediately impressed and bought them at what I...

Excellent in every respect

 

Bought the AKG550 mkII a few weeks ago, was apprehensive of the sound going from a UE6000 set, but was blown away by the clarity and Soundstage. On top of that the service in Cardiff was first class.

Detailed and engaging

 

After my old Sennheiser headphones finally fell apart I thought I'd try some of these newfangled noise canceling types. I baulked at Bose prices for something I'd only use occasionally, so picked up some budget Kitsound jobs. They're great for air...

Excellent Build Quality

 

Despite their size, these headphones are extremely comfortable and lightweight and have excellent Build Quality and the sound once run in is also brilliant for the price. Very happy with my purchase.

My head is not big enough

 

I read the reviews before buying these so I was excited to buy them. Unfortunately it's impossible to get any decent sound unless I use my hands to push them onto my ears. I'm afraid my head is not big enough. It's not a particularly small head but the...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

sounds great

 

When I decided it was time I bought a decent yet affordable pair of 'phones, I was bewildered by the choice. But not only was this product recommended by What HiFi, it was also identified as a good product by my local RicherSounds outlet. It is...
