  • Excerpt: If there’s one thing that Bose does well, besides marketing, it’s noise cancelling headphones. They just work, even if they scream “I live for middle-management”. And despite efforts from some of our favorite brands, most of the offerings have been pretty lackluster. AKG aims to remedy that, including their former noise-cancelling headphones, with the all-new AKG K495NC Noise Cancelling Headphones ($349) .

AKG K495 NC Acoustics (Black)

CNET
12 February 2012
  • Summary: The AKG K495 NCs aren't as comfortable and don't sound quite as good as the Bose QC 15s, but they're built better, offer very good noise-cancellation, and recharge via USB.
  • Pros: The AKG K495 NCs are stylish, well-built headphones with excellent fit and finish. They sound good, offer effective noise cancellation, and are rechargeable via USB. They also fold flat and come with a nice carrying case and can play without the noise cancellation engaged.
  • Cons: At $350, they're pricey--and should sound even more refined; a little light on the bass.

  • Excerpt: SPECIAL Ks Oozing luxury, the AKG K495 NC is an active noise-cancelling design, and it justifies its pricing on three levels. The quality of its noise cancelling is excellent. The design is beautiful in both looks and ergonomics. Lastly, most importantly, the sound is delicious, effortless and impeccably balanced — this is a real hi-fi headphone.

AKG K495 NC Review: Hot-Sounding, Road-Ready, Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Gizmodo
28 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Toting headphones back and forth across the country (or the city) is one of the best ways to expose their design flaws. Can the new AKG K495 NC noise-cancelling headphones, with their burly build and audiophile pedigree, stand up to that kind of punishment while delivering dulcet tones? Is this finally the ideal traveller’s kit?

  • Excerpt: To nie pomyłka, bo słuchawki wyposażono w aktywny układ redukcji szumów. Pomaga on zagłębić się w muzykę, gdy wokół pracują silniki samochodów albo panuje inny hałas. AKG to eleganckie i bardzo solidnie wykonane słuchawki „spacerowe” o charakterystycznym dla AKG „profesjonalnym” wyglądzie. Materiały to skóra, aluminium i stal.
