These AKGs have been doing the rounds for a couple of years, yet they still manage to make an impact.

For starters, they're a neat, attractive and comfortable closed-back design. It's hard not to like their cute appearance, whether they're in gloss white or gloss black guise.

Music sounds entertaining and exciting through the K430s. Bass notes have a warm, weighty prescence and go surprisingly deep, although this emphasis on low frequencies does tend to overshadow midrange and treble elements.

Still, a mighty fine effort, particularly at this price.
