The newly designed AKG legend, K271MKII combines the benefits of AKG’s circumaural design for extreme comfort and a closed-back design for maximum isolation from ambient noise. Thanks to its XXL transducers, the K271MKII sounds clean, smooth and very rich.
The K271MKII is the perfect choice for any application where sonic bleed could cause problems such as broadcast work.
Another important feature of the K271MKII is the addition of a switch in the headband that mutes the audio just as soon as the headphones are taken off.

AKG Varimotion Speakers
The heart of any headphone is the diaphragm. Made of extremely thin foil, the diaphragm is required by transducer designers to perform incredible, almost artistic feats. The rim of the diaphragm must vibrate elastically while the center portion should move like a piston. AKG achieved just that by designing the Varimotion system.
The "sound zone" in the center is thicker than the rim and therefore moves like a piston with no partial oscillations. The result is an absolutely realistic sound, with a better sonic perspective and an airier high end. The rim, or "movement zone", is thinner and vibrates more easily, providing a powerful, punchy bass range.
