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 love the sound and quality of this headphones. I used them with my mobile Xperia Ray to play Spotify or Jango. However, the cables are of very poor quality, The longest cable got somehow broken within the connector (jack) so plays music on one side. The second wire which is shorter got also broken as the rubber thing has a crack and slips off the jack now.
Summary: These head phones ceased working after only nine months. Now that I have the time to deal with sending them back I find I am too late by a few weeks. If I had bought the same headphones from Home AV Direct they would have been £1 cheaper and have a two year guarantee.
Great sounding portable headphones, let down by substandard build quality and poor customer service
29 January 2013
Excerpt: I got these as I am very particular about sound quality. The folks over at What Hi-fi? gave these such high praise, they were voted as "Product of the Year 2012". So, I decided that I must have some. When What Hi-fi? tested them, they were at a reasonably expensive £130, about on par with the RRP of the Bose in ear headphones I have been using for the past few months, but still cheaper than the frankly hideous Beats by Dre Solo HDs.
Summary: I bought these to replace my normal choice of Sennheiser earbuds for listening to my iphone on the train. At first I was impressed by the comfort and the very powerful bass, but as time went on I became increasingly disappointed with the lack of midrange clarity. I listen to mostly lossless aac, but these headphones made everything sound like a low-rate mp3. The frequency region they lack is the upper mids, where most people perceive the 'space' and 'air' to be.
Summary: I purchased these, as part of my latest journey to find a new pair of headphones to replace my broken Ultimate Ears TF10's. I decided that I wanted a pair of on-ear headphones, so bought the Philips Fielio M1/00's but returned these due to discomfort issues. Having read some good reviews for these, as well as their decent price, I decided to place my order. Opening the packaging, I felt this gave the impression of a quality well above their c.£45 asking price.
Excerpt: Сменил К414 модель (порвался провод (были у меня более двух лет). У этих провод (1 м) поламался за 3 месяца, пока хожу на огрызке (0,5 м). Качество сборки тоже не на высоте, начинает отпадать амбюшюра.
Summary: So, nach ca. einem 3/4Jahr mal eine Rezesion von mir zu diesen Kopfhörern. Ich habe mir die AKG K450 vor ca. 9Monaten als Ersatz meiner In-Ear Kopfhörer nach vielem Test Bewertungen lesen etc. gekauft. 1. Klang: Viele meinten die AKG K450 wären trotz der geringen Größe sehr Basslastig (weswegen ich sie mir gekauft habe), leider kann ich das so nicht ganz bestätigen.
Summary: Оцениваю модель в 3 балла. Через 2 недели использования отклеился защитная пластмаска джека. Не беда, подклеил. Тонкий кабель частенько защемляется молнией куртки, от чего на нём появляются существенные вмятины. Пока всё работает, но со временем кабель может накрыться. Конструкция в целом добротная, уши складываются в довольно компактную форму при необходимости. На ушах держаться хорошо, не сильно тугие, но и не ватные.
Pros: Удобная конструкция, малый вес.
Cons: Много пластика, тонкий кабель, звук на троечку.
