Noise canceling weak

KarlL, Crutchfield
19 August 2013
  • Summary: Nice enough headphones. But for the money, I would have expected noise canceling beyond reducing backround hiss. There was no noticeable reduction in noise from others' speech or music playing.
  • Pros: Good sound, comfortable, not off-putting appearance.
  • Cons: High price (yes, I think this price is high for headphones even though there are some astronomically priced ones out there), weak noise canceling performance.

Sound was great but not a durable design

RonA, Crutchfield
28 April 2013
  • Summary: These headphones delivered the sound quality and noise cancelling as advertised. I particularly liked the rechargeable feature but the design of the plastic piece that connects the ear cup to the headband is poor. This plastic piece simply snapped while I was wearing it on a flight.

Sound is Great - Durability Disappointing

Shelley, Amazon
23 April 2015
  • Summary: I purchased these for my husband for Christmas 2014, he really seemed to enjoy them "while they lasted". They were nice and portable. The sound was great, he could not here background noise, to get his attention we had to touch or raise our voices lol.

Poor and weak construction but nice sound

Sam "bgwgbooks", Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: Like others customers mine broke - after nine months. The plastic bars that holds the earphones are weak and snap easily. The carrying case is wholly inadequate. AKG sent me new replacement headphones by return and when I phoned the UK suppliers it sounded like they were very familiar with the...

some basic issues outweigh the pros

jim h, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: had the Bose QC3 for a few years til they finally succumbed to wear and tear. Before buying a new pair, thought I'd find out if there was any decent competition. Came across the AKG K90s from a couple of very positive reviews on hi-fi sites and they appeared to be the perfect replacement.

nicht S-Bahn geeignet

SHM, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: Im ersten Moment war ich von den Kopfhörern begeistert. Das NC ist auch sehr angenehm und ich hatte (im Gegensatz zu Bose) nicht den unangenehmen Druck auf den Ohren. Beim S-Bahn fahren mit NC gab es jedoch jedes Mal ein Störgeräusch, wenn die Türen lautstark zuknallten.
