Phenomenal Sound


After these are broken in, these headphones sound absolutely phenomenal. Talk about clarity, depth, "warmth" and TRUE bass representation. Coming from a long time BOSE owner, I finally get what people mean when they say "accurate" bass. If you are a...

Nice headphones for the price


Lets just say there louder and much clearer and cheaper than the Bose OE2i headphones. I had 4 days now to compare the 2 set of headphones and I have to be honest the AKG K451 are a better sounding and had more to offer. My only issue is the build...

Terrible headphones


These headphones are terrible. Two pairs from different retailers have the same problem: the left driver is muffled. It produces a significantly quieter and lower-quality sound than the right driver. It's particularly noticeable at lower...

AKG K451


A much cheaper, subtler alternative to the Beats Solo HD headphones.

Fun, powerful bass ; Removable cable ; Good accessories bundle

Minor comfort niggles

The AKG K451 are good-looking, good-sounding on-ear headphones that are perfect for a work commute. With powerful bass, they’ll liven up a dreary morning with ease. They’re not the last word in audio quality if you’re a bonafide audio snob, but they...
