Conclusion: I recently left my pair of Q460s on a plane and have been sorely missing them. I own many sets of pro headphones in my recording studio and am quite spoiled by them - so when I needed a pair of portable 'phones my standards were already very high.
Summary: There is no doubt that the Q460s are way ahead of alternatives like Beats by Dr Dre, but they are similar in that they don't suit all music types. They're great for Hip-Hop / Rap, Electronica, mellow Jazz and some Rock, but they don't fare quite as well on more acoustic genres.
Summary: Yes, it's true, these head phones and the cables are quite delicate. One speaker malfunctioned after 2 months or so, but this was resolved instantly by Amazon's impeccable service. Do I still recomend them though? Yes, very much so, because they sound sweeeet! Balanced, natural and paced.
Summary: I really like headphones great for sound and portability but there are mayor problems with the headphone cables.I have the black and green headphones and within 1 month the cable broke and I had tried to contact akg about this but I did not have the receipt for the headphones as they where bought...
Summary: i bought this one 1 week before at that moment i was seriously thought to back this stuff because of rubish sound compare with akg k420. but after i downloaded capriccio(application of iphone) the great sound was made.
Summary: Firstly, not sure what's up with the price from Amazon, they are under 100 in most places. Just got this for travelling and they are very portable, fold into a package that is easily pocketable. You also get a sturdy case that's not too big if you don't want to preserve them better.
Excerpt: Отличные наушники. Ношу весь день почти не снимая, вечером за ноут, опять в них, уши почти не устают. Качество звука тоже отличное, слышу все что хочу и могу, сильного смещения на какие-либо из частот не замечено. Подходит, думаю, для любой музыки.
