Headphones for Educated Ears.
KRK Headphones provide a precise listening experience that takes you from personal studio to commercial studio to on-the-go track evaluations -- and they allow you to accurately enjoy your music with the consistent voicing philosophy and honest reproduction top producers, studio musicians, performers and engineers have come to trust. KRK headphones provide incredibly natural frequency response that gives you a reference standard unaffected by your location. Day or night. Studio or home. Without disturbing others. Without compromising your tracks. Passionate about music and interested in experiencing the artist's vision as it was intended to be heard? Then experience KRK.
As more music is being made in bedrooms on computers, a cost-effective monitoring solution that offers a more "neutral" sound for DJ/producers compared to standard DJ cans is a must, and KRK seek to tick that box with this line of phones. If you’ve ever felt a need for a clear, crisp and virtually distortion-free reference of your mix — don’t look any further.
I noticed is that the KRK KNS 6400 has a very impressive soundstage for a closed headphone… At times I'm even fooled into thinking I have an open headphone. If I had to only use the KRK KNS 6400 as my primary headphone, I'd be perfectly satisfied.
..the KNS-6400 would be preferred for instrument and vocal overdubbing applications. Their increased midrange focus and lack of distracting bottom end thump helps singers and instrumentalists focus on pitch and melody. I found that performers liked both KRK models for overdubs (split 50/50 between KNS 6400 and KNS 8400).
The sound stage of the KNS 6400 is very similar to the KNS 8400s which makes them extremely good bang for the buck as a set of closed back gaming headphones. Just like its bigger brother it can be driven to within an inch of its life out of a normal sound card and that makes them ideal for gamers looking for a set of durable, high price / performance ratio gaming headphones.
