Progressive soul, hip-hop and electronic music

AKG K 240 Semi-Open Studio Headphones

Great for DJs!

"The new K 240 Studio delivers even wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity than its well-known and widely-used predecessor. The secret to the semi-open K 240 Studio's sound quality is the new XXL transducers in acoustically tuned vented enclosures with circumaural (around the ear) pads. The circumaural pads envelope your ears nicely and reward you with smooth, solid bass and well-balanced, articulate mids and highs."

Outasight - From There To Here

Outasight – From There To Here

To be honest I’m not sure about this cat. I feel like it’s a case of some great white over-hype. The production is great, but his nasal-y, ho-hum rapping, and even more nasal-y ‘singing’ is not anything to write home about. I’ll take Colin Munroe over this because at least dude seems authentically himself. Outasight...
