  • Summary: These are MSRPed at $399 and sometimes sold at $349. I got it at amazon for $299. I got lucky. I am really happy with these cans. The first thing I noticed was its beautiful finish and neat design. It's highly portable, designed with the a person who is constant on move in mind.
  • Pros: Most neutral sound, great design built to last, rugged cables, comfortable cushions, ANC that works pretty well, Great quality even with ANC off
  • Cons: Heavy, On ear, not over ear, ANC on/off switch is painful, ANC not as good as Bose QC15 (IDK, according to reviews), Costly

  • Summary: This isn't going to be an extremely detailed review because I'm fairly inexperienced. I'm no Audiophile but I do appreciate good sound and clarity in my headphones. The K495's definitely offer outstanding clairty and SQ, especially in comparison to direct competitors such as Bose, HK, PSB.
  • Pros: Build Quality and Aesthetics, Sound Quality - Very natural and robust, Noise Cancellation on par or better than Competitors while keeping audio clean
  • Cons: Some discomfort from pressure on upper ear after extended listening (4+ hours), NC can make lows overpowering at times, soundstage could be better

AKG K495 NC Headphone Review

Technoodling
18 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I’ll be honest, I don’t have all that much experience with headphones that come with active noise cancellation. I tend to favor in-ear phones and whatever passive noise reduction they provide.
  • Pros: Well built, good looking set of headphones, Full, robust sound, Comes with airline headphone adapter, Active noise cancellation is not a gimmick, it really does work
  • Cons: Active Noise Cancellation comes at a price, A little tricky to switch the noise reduction on and off

  • Excerpt: Over this inky background AKG’s sensitive monitor-quality audio delights with every tune, from Beatles to Armin van Buuren. Neat, comfy, desirable, they’re super swivelly and simply silky from their outer shell covering to their sensational sound quality.
