So why get the AKG N60 NC over the Bose QC25? Well, for starters it takes up a little less room in your bag. This is a smaller, on-ear headphone (it's better suited to smaller heads) and folds up and flat to fit in an included neoprene carrying case,...

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.

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...

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.
