AKG N60 NC Wireless


The AKG N60 NC Wireless headphones deliver strong noise cancellation and wonderful Bluetooth audio in a comfortable design.

Strong noise cancellation. Excellent audio performance. Can be used in wired, passive mode. Comfortable.

No auto-off mode to save battery life.

We'll make this simple: If you're looking for best-in-category active noise cancellation, that distinction still belongs to Bose—check out the aforementioned QC 35 or the in-ear QC 30, both of which are wireless. However, if you want the best Bluetooth...

AKG N60 NC review


If you're in the market for a premium noise-canceling headphone, chances are you're looking at one of the Bose models, the QuietComfort 25 (around-ear) or QuietComfort 20 . We gave high ratings to those products and -- in terms of noise-canceling...

The AKG N60 NC is a compact, comfortable, well-designed on-ear headphone that sounds really good for a model with active noise cancellation. The rechargeable battery offers 30 hours of listening time.

Charging cable isn't the standard Micro-USB variety; single-button remote lacks volume controls.

Despite a few small downsides, AKG's $250 on-ear active noise-canceling headphone sounds great and is a worthy alternative to Bose's top-selling QuietComfort 25.

The AKG N60 NC headphones deliver balanced, laudable audio performance and solid noise cancellation in a travel-friendly design.

Powerful, balanced audio performance. Solid noise cancellation. Can be used passively. Includes removable cable. Comfortable design that folds down for easy stowing.

Noise cancellation creates audible hiss. Not for those seeking booming bass.

If noise cancellation is your top priority, the aforementioned Bose QuietComfort 20 is still your best bet. There are other headphones with solid audio performance and decent noise cancellation, such as the Plantronics BackBeat Pro, the Samsung Level...

AKG N60NC Noise Canceling Headphones [Review]


Its been some time since I have personally reviewed a pair of AKGs dating back to the K845BTs which were on-ear headphones and also wireless. Since then AKG has come out with some pretty stylish headphones I feel are directed towards the younger crowd....

When I first got a look at them I couldn’t see why they held a hefty price tag of $249.99 (originally $299) but my eyes have been opened up a bit. They provide excellent active noise cancelling, are very portable based on their weight and collapsible...

AKG N60 NC Wireless


AKG N60 NC Wireless review: AKG has ditched the wires for its new noise-cancelling headphones. But are they as good as the original N60 NC?

Excellent sound ; Lightweight ; Collapsible design ; Good noise cancellation

Could have more padding on the headband ; No NFC

Super-portable noise-cancelling cans, the AKG N60 NC Wireless offer a fun and enthusiastic sound – all without wires.

The AKG N60 are headphones firmly aimed at those who are out and about. They're portable, light and also feature active noise cancellation, which helps to drown out ambient noise such as annoyingly loud conversations on the tube or the rumbling of a...

Light, elegant and extremely portable design ; Comfortable to wear for long periods ; Active noise cancelling is excellent ; Warm, full-bodied sound quality

USB end of the cable a little flimsy ; No Bluetooth wireless support

The portable design and the impressive noise cancellation make these great-sounding on-ears a commuter's best friend.
