Summary: These headphones work as advertised very good noise canceling on my flights with excellent sound quality as well. Stored easily with the fold up and seemed sturdy enough for me. I haven't tried any other headphones but these seemed comfortable enough although the cord was a bit cumbersome.
Pros: Good sound, easy storage, super noise canceling
Cons: little heavier than expected, cord a tad unwieldy
Summary: This is my second pair. I enjoyed the first very much, until they were damaged by a flood in a Costa Rica hotel room. The hotel graciously reimbursed me and I began shopping for a replacement when I returned home.
Pros: Good sound quality with or without noise cancelling turned on. Internal battery charged via USB.
Cons: Inadequate carrying case that probably contributes to damaged units.
Summary: I got these headphones to replace some Beats Solos that had gotten pretty beat up. The sound quality is so much better on the AKG's. I also like that they are unique. No one has them, and when people ask to try them, they are always impressed.
Summary: I really like these headphones. They fold up very compactly, have a nice fabric cord, charge easily with a USB, and have solid noise cancellation that works well on airplanes. With nearby conversations it helps to have both NC on and music as well.
Pros: compact when folded
solid noise reduction
Summary: I ordered these headphones for a long airline flight. They really helped block out the ambient noise in the plane, and helped make it a better flight. The sound quality, and noise canceling abilities of this headphone are both very good. I would highly recommend.
Pros: Good noise canceling & sound quality. Good comfort for extended use.
Cons: I can't think of anything to complain about...
Summary: Exceptional osund quality, virtually no hiss when NC is operating. Generally comfortable, although they're on-ear rather than around the ear, so there can be a bit of sound leakage audible to those around you.
Pros: Great sound, excellent NC, packs small, no batteries
Cons: Requires a charge, minor sound leakage, hard-to-replace cords
Summary: Purchased these after reading technical reviews. Overall I am satisfied with the product, but a part of me wonders if the Bose headphones would have been as good, with better comfort.
Pros: Noise canceling and overall sound quality is very good. I work at home and it cancels out the screaming kids next door! I like the fabric cord and the USB charging instead of batteries.
Cons: Too bad these are not over the ear headphones. The on-ear pressure gets uncomfortable after a while. The carry pouch could be better. It is too small for the headphones, cords and charging adapter (not included).
Summary: Considered a lot of other options, but these ultimately seem to be best overall value. Very, very happy with the sound. I've had Klipsch on ear headphones and Shure earbuds, and I prefer the sound of the AKGs over both of those. To my ears, they are simply full and natural.
Summary: Really pleased with these excellent headphones. Good bass and clear sound. The noise cancelling feature works beautifully, brings the sound closer, especially on the tube. The only draw back is that there is no blue tooth feature. Otherwise perfect.
