RE: AKG 450 OR 451

From all the reading I've done in forums, reviews etc. the K451 is definitely the one to go for. Given that the K450 is around £40, and the K451 is £53, it looks like a no brainer. Hope this helps.

Just dont bother, both are the most uncomfortable headphones I have ever worn, they make your ears hurt and to be honest I simply cant bear to wear them for more than an hour.

Actively looking for another pair, even if you audition, you are never going to try them on that long, so bit of luck involved I guess

My set arrived. Once I flexed the metal band and ran them in a bit, made them comfortable and burned them in they're fantastic! Really nice sound for me.  Smile

I own k450 , I've used them maybe 10 times  (after 15 hours of running in)  and  hate them sound is too warm lack of detail , just muddy , I got them from Superfi so I thing they are original , I prefer my Koss port a pro , Shenns hd25
