Conclusion: I Really think these have great sound! A small foot print and they work really well with Portable music devices! I also have the AKG Q460 a very similar headphone and these require less volume over the Q460 and were actually cheaper and sound just as good... I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great sounding, on ear, reasonably priced headphone!
Conclusion: Its an amazing portable headphone,unbelievable sound quality its so clear.everything is balanced.it does not have bass rage like other headphones.I was looking the grado s but its open system.and its disturbing to pepole.so k450 is a good alternative.not same but good alternative.its have useful carry box. thnx for fast shipping sonic electronic.
Conclusion: I purchased this item one month ago, and feel very satisfied with it. I like using it either at home or in public places: very nice design, easy to fold and carry, light weight, highly soundproof. According to the last feature I just mentioned, using it when you walk on the streets is NOT suggested. The only thing I DON'T like is that the sound might be a little, little dull. When I switch to my old earphone I can tell a difference; but generally I'm fine with this.
Conclusion: I bought a pair of AKGs about 8 years ago and put them through the wringer, and they held up very well. So I just purchased these and they're great for riding my bike through the woods or rocking out late at night.
Great headphones, if you get around the cable issue.

Summary: Overall this is a great product. It's made for using on the go and that's how I've been treating this headphone. I've been using them for a few months now, bringing it with me through long hours on the plane. I love that these don't hurt your ears, I can wear them for hours and hours. However, the downside to the AKG K450 is the cable. The ones that come with it feels relatively cheap. I can see from most bad reviews is regarding this issue.
Summary: These headphones are nicely made, comfortable to wear and foldable. For me they are bass-heavy and slightly lacking treble and mid-range but they are well liked by the person they were a present for. Unfortunately the cable broke after six months use, a common occurrence when phones like these are used outdoors, but AKG replaced it without fuss.
Summary: I love these AKG headphones. I initially bought them to wear on public transport to plug into my Nokia smart phone to block out people having loud conversations on their mobiles. I had some Nokia ear bud headphones which didn't block out people's conversations even when I had my music files turned up to the maximum volume.
Summary: Cant believe these were on sale at over £100 once. They are nice, but nothing great. There are numerous wires to lengthen its connection, which to me seems a bit strange but each to their own. The folding earpieces and the protective case are nice ideas, but still wouldnt encourage me to spend more than the £50 I did on them, overall I prefer Inear headphones and have felt better quality for about £30 in that range.
Summary: I have my AKGs just over 1 year, purchased based on What Hi Fi reviews, and the right ear stopped working. I purchased direct from Amazon (EU S.a.r.L) to avoid receiving a knock-off and to my knowledge it's the real deal. Low use, well taken care of, just stopped working. I'll attempt a repair but will be switching back to more reliable Sennheiser cans. No complaints with the AKGs apart from that.
