  • 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. It seems to me that AKG wanted to give great quality sound with noise cancellation and that's what they pretty much achieved.
  • 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.   BUILD   These are BEAUTIFUL headphones. The design is sturdy and svelte at the same time. Leather wraps the headband and covers the exterier of the cups.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Обязательно нужно щупать и слушать перед покупкой, иначе может быть разочарование.
  • Pros: Отличное качество материалов, отличный набор аксессуаров, классный звук КОГДА включен NC, работают даже с посаженной батарейкой
  • Cons: Долго сидеть в них не комфортно (может зависит от физиологии), звук c выключенным NC сухой, без нижних частот - ни о чем короче звук.

  • Excerpt: Как выяснилось, ремонту не подлежат. По гарантии попробую обратиться в БигБит (наушники "серые"), но уверен что ничего не выйдет - поломка механическая. Интернет пестрит сообщениями о такой же поломке, в точно том же месте что и у меня. Деньги выброшенные на ветер.
  • Pros: Хороший звук
  • Cons: Самый главный - наушники сломались через два месяца и оказывается это их известная проблема.

  • Excerpt: По сравнению с Bose QC 15, они всё же работают, когда садится аккумулятор - так что грех жаловаться на небольшой недостаток басов в таком режиме. Иногда на работе забываю включить режим шумоподавления - не настолько значительная разница на мой взгляд. Может быть потому что я не отношу себя к любителям перекрывающих всё низов...
  • Pros: Хороший звук
  • Cons: Долго носить неудобно. Использую на работе и в транспорте. На работе после 2-3х часов приходится снимать, иногда уши болят потом.
