Review: Harman Audio AKG K495 NC

 

If you demand near-absolute silence from your noise-canceling headphones, these are the ones for you. The AKG K495 NCs get closer to dead silence than...

Handsome design. Strong noise canceling with only a dribble of audio artifacts. Two lengths of detachable braided cable, one with an in-line remote. Fantastic sound in passive mode, too

On-ear design leads to fatigue after a couple of hours, and plastic parts inside the earcups can dig into your ears. Metal headband is sharp and snaggy. They don’t stay on your head as well as over-the-ears

AKG K495 NC Headphone Review

 

I'll be honest, I don't have all that much experience with headphones that come with active noise cancellation. I tend to favor in-ear phones and whatever passive noise reduction they provide. Another reason is because I just don't like wearing...

Well built, good looking set of headphones ; Full, robust sound ; Comes with airline headphone adapter ; Active noise cancellation is not a gimmick, it really does work

Active Noise Cancellation comes at a price ; A little tricky to switch the noise reduction on and off

I liked the sound of the K495 NC a lot and if you’re in the market for a product like this, I can definitely recommend it.

SPECIAL Ks Oozing luxury, the AKG K495 NC is an active noise-cancelling design, and it justifies its pricing on three levels. The quality of its noise cancelling is excellent. The design is beautiful in both looks and ergonomics. Lastly, most...

AKG K495 NC Review: Hot-Sounding, Road-Ready, Noise-Cancelling Headphones

 

Toting headphones back and forth across the country (or the city) is one of the best ways to expose their design flaws. Can the new AKG K495 NC noise-...

Testing took place in New York City, where we used them daily for about a month. Lots and lots of rock music, with occasional hip hop, electronic and experimental tracks worked in. Used high-quality AAC files and online streams. • Subtlety and nuance...

K495NC Headphones

 

The headphones convinced the jury with their clear and pure design. The genuine metal applications in particular impart an elegant, high-quality appearance.

Not Happy

 

I purchased these headphones over the Bose QC3 due to the recommendation of the sales associate. I had to order them and wait. I checked out the reviews online and they seemed to agree that they were superior in sound and I liked the fact that you...

I was looking to replace my Sennheisers but couldn't find them locally, so I looked into these headphones. They're great for sound design and the sound cancellation... well, my wife made me nearly jump out of my skin when she touched me on the...

great audio quality - noise cancellation on or off

 

I had the small bose top of the line noise cancellation headphones for 10 years. They just stopped working so I looked into several replacement options. The AKG offered the best balance of sound quality, flexibility and overall quality. The beauty was...

Its almost having $$$ monitor speakers on my ears

 

I bought the Harmon/Kardon CL headphones and were pretty good and did think about getting the B&W P5 but I did not like how it sits on my ears, but I did like H/K CL. The sound quality was nice and it was decently comfortable. I then found out that...
