  • Summary: These headphones are extremely expensive! I bought these before I really understood the most important part of headphones, comfort. If I can't wear my headphones, why should I have ever bought them?
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Light Frame, Noise Cancelling
  • Cons: Fragility, mobility, Comfort

  • 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

good pair of headphones till they broke

  • Summary: These are some of the best headphones i have owned. The build quality is very good as is the sound and noise cancellation. Having owned them for 6 months i can say that they are comfy to wear and the case makes for easy transportation. The plug for use in airplanes is also really helpful.

Amazing sound quality and materials seem good quality to me despite some of the reviews

  • Summary: I was a bit skeptical when first bought them as some of the reviews were not too god, but in my opinion they've done the job. Been using them for almost a year now, and the noise cancellation is great, love the quality of the materials, they haven't broke anywhere but I guess you do have to take...

  • Summary: SNAPPED like the reviews said it would. Excellent sound quality. I wish I could keep this headphone forever, but poor construction makes it unusable.

The sound is brilliant and crispy

  • Summary: The sound is brilliant and crispy, the structure is very good. The finish is beautiful and they look very good. My only, but regrettably not negligible, problem is that they are not very comfortable.

convenience when wearing for a long time and the noise cancelling is by far better. Can only recommend them

  • Summary: Wow these clearly beat the Bose Silent Comforts in sound quality, material quality, convenience when wearing for a long time and the noise cancelling is by far better. Can only recommend them.

  • Summary: I would not recommend these headphones as they have terrible build quality: the band that holds them on your head snapped in about 5 places within 3 months from normal wear.
