AKG Q460 Headphones - Quincy Jones Stands By it, Can You?

 

There are musicians, and then there's Quincy Jones. You might not have heard of him, but the track “We Are the World” will definitely ring a bell. Quincy Jones also has his own signature line of headphones now, which we checked out. Design The Q460...

At the end of the day, you have to ask if you really want to buy it. Performance-wise it works well, but you expect something more when Quincy Jones is endorsing it. And to top it off, the price at Rs. 7,990 is ridiculous. You expect signature lines to...

AKG Q460 Quincy Jones Signature Headphones Review

 

One of the best on-ear portable headphones out there.

Brilliant sound; Great bass; Two different length detachable cables are great for people with different needs; In-line remote is close to head and effective

Nothing, really

The earpieces and the underside of the headband have padded leather for increased comfort. The fit on the Q460 is neither too tight, nor too loose, making for a remarkably comfortable wear for all the hours I wore them. The padded cushions on the...

We find out how these lean, green music machines compare to the Monster Beats Solo.

Rich bass ; Good build

Sound is not balanced or "natural ; Cheaper rivals on offer

Noise isolation is not hugely effective though - much less than a set of IEM earphones, an on-ear set with larger cups or a full over-the-ears pair. In less noisy modes of transport, like trains and buses, they'll do fine - but we found the noise of...

AKG Q460 review

 

The AKG Q460 is a sharp set of on-ear headphones with crystal-clear audio and striking looks.

We really like the AKG Q460 earphones. Amazing audio and striking looks make for a great combination. Add in an endorsement by the great Quincy Jones no less and, although the price tag is a little higher than most people may want to pay, they're well...

More pros than cons, but the AKGs aren?t the most complete listen

Good build and finish; comfortable in situ; balanced, assertive sound

Don?t sound as spacious as most rivals

Good portable headphone

 

Great portable headphone. They include 2 cords but I wish the 2nd cord (the one without the iPod controls) was longer.

Great headphone for a beginner

 

Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He loves it. Good price, great sound, fashionable look. His only complaint is that it does not feel very comfortable to wear it for a long while. But I think this is quite common for on-ear phone. Overall, a very...
