AKG N40 review

 

With the right source, these AKGs are awesome

Excellent build ; Comfortable as in-ears get ; Capable of stunning sound

great detail ; great quality build and sound ; tuning inserts if needed for personal preference ; comfortable

probably won't need bass boost tuning tip ; need a good source to get the best from them ; ^ not really a con ^ ; a bit scary on the bass side until they burn in ; also not really a con for some people

Excellent sound

 

Pulled the trigger on these today and haven't regretted it since. Very strong bass but not overpowering. Mids and highs are very crisp and warm.
