Surely? Actually, no.</p> <p>Equally at ease with low bit-rate compressed music as they are with higher quality CD sources, these are cans that cannot be overlooked by any music fan.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £50.00 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-price-from"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-pros"> <div class="field-label">Pros:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lightweight and portable </div> <div class="field-item even"> Comfortable fit </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Great sound </div> <div class="field-item even"> Bundled, interchangeable cables </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Great value, sweet sound </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>When a pair of headphones receives five stars at &pound;130, then drops to &pound;50, you know you&rsquo;re on to a good thing. The K451s are light on your head, but sturdy enough to be stuffed in a bag. And they do a fantastic line in punchy, solid bass, rich and detailed vocals and clear, sweet-sounding treble. Want to know what they&rsquo;d taste like if they were 
a pudding? Delicious raspberry chocolate fondant, that&rsquo;s what.</p> <p>A foldable design for easy stowage, plus an additional cable that has volume controls and an in-line mic makes them suitable for mobile listening, too. If you like it loud, you won&#39;t be disappointed, and even at high volumes there&#39;s a surprising amount of control across the frequency spectrum. And don&#39;t worry - while the design makes them look open-backed they&#39;re actually closed, so your neighbours on the bus won&#39;t hear your Kylie Minogue tunes unless you pump them up to silly levels.</p> <p>In short, they&#39;re awesome. We loved them at &pound;130, so at &pound;50 they&#39;re an absolute steal. Buy a pair now - you really won&#39;t regret it.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/headphones/top-ten" target="_blank">The best headphones in the world right now</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="AKG K451" alt="AKG K451" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/AKG%20K451%202.jpg?1394634991" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Hi-fi for half a ton.
