Great sound, comfortable fit...but they're now in two pieces!

Kenneth Angus McColl, Amazon
28 November 2015
  • Summary: I've been really pleased with these headphones - they sound great, the noise-cancellation is excellent. My only beef is that, after perhaps 20 uses, one of the hinge-brackets that enables the headphones to fold neatly has broken and they are unusable.

Nice headphones, too easily broken, can't recommend.

  • Summary: Lovely headphones which are a relief when flying long haul and you need to block out the cabin noise for a bit. The sound quality is good enough and they are compact. The ability to charge them from USB is great and the interchanging cable makes that a doddle.

Good audio, average noise cancelling, horrendous build quality

Fantab, Amazon

  • Summary: I have enjoyed using these for just under a year. Sound quality is lovely, not too much bass and nice crisp treble. Noise cancelling is average. I wear them in the train and can still hear the train quite clearly, however it does create a distance between the train and the music, enabling me to...

Poor and weak construction but nice sound

Sam, Amazon
23 February 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...

Sound is Great - Durability Disappointing

Shelley, Amazon

  • 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.

some basic issues outweigh the pros

jim h, Amazon

  • 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.

The aim was to move from some old In-Ear JVC NC headphones to something that could make me enjoy more my travelling I've test those against the Bose QC3 and i, believe...

Not impressed!

Mr. N. C. Kendell, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: OK, these are NOT audiophile quality headphones, but I am disappointed. They are small - not a bad thing at all; they are comfortable - which is good; they are well made - another good thing...BUT, and this IS a BIG but, they sound cheap.

Das Kabel ist eine Unverschämtheit.

Amazon Kunde, Amazon
22 March 2016
  • Summary: Mit dem Kopfhörer an sich bin ich zufrieden. Die Kombination aus Mobilität, Bequemlichkeit und Klangqualität ist in meiner Wahrnehmung spitze. Leider sogar dermaßen, dass ich die im folgenden beschriebenen Unannehmlichkeiten mit knirschenden Zähnen in Kauf nehme.
