Amazing Quality

AToughCustomer, Crutchfield
11 February 2013
  • Summary: The noise redcution and sound quality were even better than I had expected. I was replacing a set of Bose headphones and chose these over Beats by Dre and am I SO gald I did. The sound loss through the headpones is very slight (much better than the Beats) and the sleek design is superior to the bulky ear cups on the Bose units. Crutchfield ahs the best price on these headphones and the quality is worth every penny. So Happy I got these.

Great sound and noise cancelling headphones

PGS, Crutchfield
30 August 2012
  • Summary: I'm extremely happy with these headphones! When I was researching headphones, I was looking for both great sound and noise cancelling. I've often found that you have to sacrifice sound quality for the noise cancelling feature, but these headphones have a good balance of both. I recently used them on a 5 hour flight and found them to be more comfortable than over the ear NC headphones like the Bose ones. The AKG's feel good in your hands, not flimsy at all.

AKG Noise Cancelling Headphones

TR, Crutchfield
13 August 2012
  • Summary: Five hour flights with these on my head are absolutely easy. No discomfort, no sweating like with the over-the-ear headsets, and good sound quality to boot. I am a 57 year old who toasted his hearing playing rock and roll in the 70's, so I would not know if they are studio-quality nor do I care. I just needed something for long flights and these are perfect.
  • Pros: More than decent noise suppression/cancelling, comfortable, detachable (easily replaceable) cord, stow in a relatively small space, good build and materials quality, sound great, battery life, recharge options!
  • Cons: I have no idea what a "Coolness Factor" might be, but I can't imagine anyone can look cool with a set of headphones on their head.

Good value for money

Tomcat, Richer Sounds

  • Summary: Only had cheap sony headphones in the past so a vast improvement and sound great. I like the design and how they fold down. In other reviews some people say they are tight on their head and the case is rubbish being soft. They are tighter than my other headphones but fit me fine and i'm really happy with the case. If your expecting the noise cancellation to block everything out they don't, but any kind of hum or buzz they do.
  • Pros: noise cancellation , how they fold down

Rauhaa kaipaaville

Ohhoh, Verkkokauppa
15 August 2013
  • Summary: On tullut lähinnä käytettyä nappikuulokkeita niin näiden jälkeen ei ole paluuta. Äänenlaatu on todella hyvä ja poistaa riittävän hyvin taustamelua. Kuulokkeet menee pieneen kasaan joten niitä on helppo kuljettaa. Tässä vielä auttaa mukana tullut pieni pussi. Aluksi mietitytti uskaltaako ostaa sikaa säkissä kun näitä ei ollut koekuunneltavissa liikkeessä. Mutta sian sijaan saikin todella hyvät kuulokkeet.

  • Summary: Ljudkvalité: 10/10 Brusreducering: 10/10 Design: 9/10 Har precis köpt dessa lurar och testat dom aktivt i ca 30-40 minuter. Kort och gott 10/10 vid en första anblick. Den aktiva brusreduceringen (NC) är fantastiskt bra, spelat upp både ljud och musik i hemmabiosystemet samtidigt som jag testat NC:n, både med och utan musik i lurarna. Utomstående ljud/buller i högre volym sänks avsevärt, även utan musik i lurarna.

Rahalla saa laatua

Kekulions, Verkkokauppa

  • Summary: Jokapaikan (paitsi lenkkipolun) kuulokkeet, joissa on erityisen hyvä ja värittymätön ääni. Vastamelutoiminto ei vaikuta äänenlaatuun ja poistaa kohtuullisen hyvin tasaisen taustamelun, jolloin äänenvoimakkuutta ei tarvitse lisätä esim. junassa tai lentokoneessa. Taittuvat pieneen tilaan, tosin aika näyttää miten hyvin taittomekanismi kestää.
