"Who wouldn't dream of being to simply put on a pair of headphones and retreat to your own personal listening paradise? This has long been many an audiophile's dream but many audiophiles do not regard headphones too highly because of their generally closed and unnatural sound when compared with speakers. Now, with the popularity of portable devices and various factors like space constraints headphones are seeing a great resurgence in popularity. We decided to examine the AKG K 1000 which was officially unleashed on the world in 1989 and is still very popular and in some cases the holy grail amongst audiophiles.
