AKG K495 NC Acoustics (Black) review

 

For 2012 AKG has two new pairs of stylish noise-canceling headphones, the $349.95 K495 NC and $249.95 K490 NC .

The AKG K495 NCs are stylish, well-built headphones with excellent fit and finish. They sound good, offer effective noise cancellation, and are rechargeable via USB. They also fold flat and come with a nice carrying case and can play without the noise...

At $350, they're pricey--and should sound even more refined; a little light on the bass.

The AKG K495 NCs aren't as comfortable and don't sound quite as good as the Bose QC 15s, but they're built better, offer very good noise-cancellation, and recharge via USB.

AKG K495 NC Noise-Cancelling Headphones Review

 

The AKG K495 noise-cancelling headphones serve up rich sound and a long-lasting battery. Just be ready to spend a few days breaking them in for comfort.

Elegant chassis ; Loud, rich audio ; Long-lasting, rechargeable battery ; Can still play music after battery dies

Expensive ; High and mid levels lose definition at high volumes ; Takes a few days to break in for comfy fit

AKG's K495 NC headphones deliver rich, deep audio and long battery life in a stylish design. But they lose definition at higher volumes.

AKG K495 NC Headphone Review

 

I'll be honest, I don't have all that much experience with headphones that come with active noise cancellation. I tend to favor in-ear phones and whatever passive noise reduction they provide. Another reason is because I just don't like wearing...

Well built, good looking set of headphones ; Full, robust sound ; Comes with airline headphone adapter ; Active noise cancellation is not a gimmick, it really does work

Active Noise Cancellation comes at a price ; A little tricky to switch the noise reduction on and off

I liked the sound of the K495 NC a lot and if you’re in the market for a product like this, I can definitely recommend it.

The headphones convinced the jury with their clear and pure design. The genuine metal applications in particular impart an elegant, high-quality appearance.

AKG K495 NC Review: Hot-Sounding, Road-Ready, Noise-Cancelling Headphones

 

Toting headphones back and forth across the country (or the city) is one of the best ways to expose their design flaws. Can the new AKG K495 NC noise-...
