A nice product that suffers from design and manufacturing flaws

Summary: I would have loved to love this headphone. I did not buy it from Amazon but picked it up cheaply at the Helsinki airport. It was brand, brand new back then and so I did not know what to expect. First, the good points: the sound was good. The noise cancelling function works rather well in the plane.
Summary: These headphones were great on the plane. However there are 2 flaws. 1. The noise cancelling function creates a strange popping noise if you move your head side to side, which on a bumpy train ride happens frequently. 2.
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.
Summary: Being unable to find any retailer with stock of the smaller K490 phones, I purchased the K495. First set of these headphones had to be returned due to intermittent loss of sound in left can. Liked the sound the replacement headphones produced in both NC and non-NC mode. Solid feel and well built.
Summary: From an audio perspective, these are possibly the best headphones I've ever owned. The sound quality is fantastic, and the Noise Cancellation is capable of blocking out the sound of screaming toddlers on a train. Sadly, the construction isn't quite as good.
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.
Excerpt: Jeg har brukt Bose QC15 og er svært fornøyd med det, men de begynner å bli slitne etter daglig bruk i flere år. Valgte dette headsettet fremfor QC25 pga pris. Likte ikke at enheten ikke kan brukes til å høre musikk under lading ( lydinngangen er en kombinert lyd/ladeinngang) Headsettet har meget god...
Summary: Der Kopfhörer ist klanglich sehr gut, auch die Geräuschunterdrückung ist perfekt. Mechanisch ist er aber eine Fehlkonstruktion. Das ist jetzt der dritte Kopfhörer in 6 Monaten und er ist zweimal an der gleichen Stelle gebrochen und kann nicht mehr sinnvoll genutzt werden.
Summary: Sonido excelente pero me pasó lo mismo que a otro compañero de Amazon. Se me rompieron por la junta de la diadema al cabo de unos pocos meses. Afortunadamente Amazon me devolvió el dinero. Una lástima porque el sonido es excelente.
