AKG K420 Headphone Review

 

The AKG K402 headphone is an interesting break from the norm for me. Most of the headphones I review here at Technoodling tend to be either of the in-ear variety like the Westone 4 and Brainwavz B2, or the over-the-ear kind like the Superlux HD330 and...

Lightweight, foldable ; Balanced and pleasant to listen to

Build quality could be better ; Felt tight on my head no matter how I adjusted them. Or do I just have a big head

Having said that, the K402 is a decent sounding headphone at a price that won’t break the bank. If you can try them on before you buy, even better.

Price, sound (for the price), balanced sound, design

Cable may be too short for some
