  • 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

  • Summary: Very nice headphones with very good noise cancelling feature. the only con is they make a lot of pressure on your ears after a few hours, like in a plane trip.

Poor quality, uncomfortable and broken after 2 months use

C E Fenn, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought these with the intention of wearing them at work to drown out the noise in a open office environment. I chose them over the Bose QC range as they were a bit cheaper and seemed to have good reviews elsewhere as premium noise cancelling headphones. I have a larger than average head and found these incredibly heavy and uncomfortable, after about half an hours use they gave me neck ache and the hard cheap feeling headband made my scalp numb where it dug in.

Noise cancelling & sound quality not all that

Mr. J. Virdi "jaspal_virdi", Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: Tried this in the office and it failed to cancel out almost all of the noise, specifically voices. Weirdly it amplified others, such as mouse & keyboard taps! The sound quality with the NC turned off is very poor and sounds like a distant, tinny noise. Things sound alot better once you switch the (fiddly) Noise Cancelling switch on, however while this provides a richer sound it distorts too much of the bass, which drowns out the rest of your music.
