AKG K67 Tiësto review

£99 inc VAT

Manufacturer: AKG

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

AKG's over-ear headphones offer strong sound quality and fashion styling. Read our AKG K67 Tiësto review to find out more.

AKG's K67 Tiësto over-ear headphones offer strong sound quality and fashion styling. See all audio reviews.

Not having heard of DJ/producer Tiësto, we probably aren’t the target audience for this newrange of headphones. However, AKG insists the AKG K67 Tiësto headphones aren't just aimed at clubbers. See Group test: What are the best headphones?

Priced at £99, the AKG K67 Tiëstos are primarily sold through AKG’s network of specialist audio stores, and it’s probably a good idea to try and listen to them in a showroom in order to see if they suit your personal musical tastes. There are two other models in the Tiësto range, with the K167 (£199) for use in clubs and the K267 (£329) for professional DJs.

The chunky design is just the sort of thing that’s currently in vogue for wearing outdoors – preferably on top of a woolly hat – and the large padded earpieces fit right over your ears and do a good job of blocking out background noise. The closed-back design should keep most of the sound in too, so hopefully you won’t annoy the people around you if you’re wearing them in public. The AKG K67 Tiësto headphones' earpieces also fold flat so that you can easily slip them into a backpack when you’re not using them.

As you might expect, the key feature of the AKG K67 Tiësto headphones is their strong bass output, and they do produce a really deep, full sound that is ideal for dance music. However, the bass doesn’t overwhelm the mid-range and higher frequencies, so the headphones do work well with rock and pop music too – although I’m not sure I’d recommend them to the Radio 3 classical crowd.

  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

There’s a strong fashion element to the K67, with their chunky earpieces and celebrity-DJ branding. However, they do provide very good sound quality for dance, rock and pop music and are well worth considering if you’re looking for a portable set of headphones that you can wear outdoors or carry around with you.

    The AKG K840 KL uses the Kleer wireless technology to provide lossless, CD-quality streaming audio. This will have obvious appeal to audiophiles, who want to get the best possible quality from their headphones.

    Soul by Ludacris SL150

    The SL150 is one of five sets of headphones made by Soul and endorsed by Ludacris that are said to be ideal for live-sound situations, putting them directly up against tough competition from high-end players such as Sennheiser, Ultrasone and AKG. But are these stylish cans primed for audiophiles or the fashion-conscious? Find out how they stack up in our Soul by Ludacris SL150 review.
