Review: AKG K490 NC Headphones

31 January 2013
  • Excerpt: When Technoodling HQ delivered a new batch of gadgets for review to my house, there was one device that didn’t come in any packaging whatsoever. It was in a small black neoprene pouch with a plain “AKG” on the side.

  • Conclusion: For the price, the excellent AKG K 490 NC noise canceling headphones outperform everything below--and several models above--it.
  • Pros: Quality noise cancellation. Excellent audio performance. Does not distort at high volumes. Very comfortable. Can be used passively. Recharges via USB. Removable cable.
  • Cons: Protective pouch is compact but probably could use more padding or a shell. On-ear design leaks audio.
