The AKG K391 NC is a powerful pair of noise canceling in-canal earphones with enough upsides to compensate for its merely average noise cancellation.

Powerful bass response and distortion-free, crisp sound signature. Outputs audio in both passive and powered modes. Charges via USB rather than inconvenient disposable batteries. Inline remote control and microphone for mobile devices.

Noise cancellation isn't class-leading. The inline compartment will be an annoyance for some. Bass-boosted sound signature not for purists.

There aren't a ton of in-ear noise cancellation pairs on the market, however, and the upcoming Bose pair costs a full $100 more than the K391 NC. With solid audio, decent noise cancellation, and a thoughtful overall design, the K391 NC earns its price....

Outstanding noise isolation. ; Accurate audio reproduction. ; Very little sound leakage.

Unexciting design. ; Uncomfortable "in ear" fit.

Taken as a whole, K391 NC is a very good noise-canceling earphone option—a premium-priced model with just enough legitimately premium functionality to be worthy of considering. Between the nice industrial design, clean sound, and very welcome...

The AKG K391 NC is a powerful pair of noise canceling in-canal earphones with enough upsides to compensate for its merely average noise cancellation.

In both passive and active modes, the K391 NC outputs audio, though typically the passive mode is less powerful, with less low-frequency presence. Regardless, in either listening mode, the earphones do not distort, even on tracks with intense sub-bass...
