  • 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: Na jaren AKG (incl active noise reduction) te hebben gebruikt was het tijd voor een nieuwe. Ik twijfelde tussen AKG en Bose, maar dankzij mooie aanbieding van Coolblue toch voor de vertrouwde AKG gekozen. Het begint met een geweldig design van deze. Mooier dan de fotos doen vermoeden. Verder ben ik blij dat de batterijen bij dit type zijn ingebouwd, niet met een los 'doosje' ergens bij bungelen (nadeel van mijn oude).
  • Pros: Geluidskwaliteit, Active noise reduction, Design, Opbergdoos
  • Cons: Iets zwaarder door de batterijen

  • Summary: Uitstekende NC hoofdtelefoon met zeer goede geluidskwaliteit; je hoort details in de muziek die je nooit eerder had opgemerkt. Het is altijd een goed teken als een nieuwe hoofdtelefoon je zin geeft je volledige muziekcollectie opnieuw te beluisteren. Door de NC zit je in een geluidsdichte cocon, geweldig in bus of metro. Ik koos voor een on-ear hoofdtelefoon omdat hij minder groot is, maar om goed af te sluiten drukt hij wel behoorlijk hard op de oren.
  • Pros: Geluidskwaliteit, Uitstekende noise cancellation, Afwerking, Blijft werken als de batterijen leeg zijn
  • Cons: Bij lange sessies minder comfortabel, Voetstappen weergalmen in de hoofdtelefoon
