I listen to old AKG 601's every day at home, and I like them mainly because they're comfortable and neutral-sounding, I can wear them happily for a long time. They sound similar to the more-popular 701. I have a pretty big head, so the AKG headband design works better for me than "normal" headbands, which all seem too small. I've gotten used to AKG's "polite" bass response, but I've never really liked it.
Looking for a closed-back equivalent for the noisier environment at work, I wanted the comfort of the AKG headband, with acceptable sound quality, at a much lower price point, so the K92 fit the bill.
The main surprises with these phones:
1. While the design is similar, it's not the same -- the cups are a little smaller, the pads are a little thinner, and the headband is a little springier, so it's not quite the comfort revelation that the 601 design is. It's still comfortable, though, with the same lightness I love in the 601.
2. The sound is completely different: much higher sensitivity, *much* more bass, which I consider more realistic. It's not the analytical AKG sound at all. Compared to my 601's these are also quite harsh in the mid/high vocal range, e.g. Norah Jones sounds like a different person, like she's yelling.
3. Less isolation than I had hoped for. I suspect it's a trade-off with lightness. These are better than open headphones but not a complete solution. Mainly high frequencies are blocked, but lower frequencies, including speech, are not that attenuated.
