AKG K545

 

The AKG K545 is a headphone pair for lovers of balanced, crisp audio, with plenty of bass that doesn't get insanely boosted.

Powerful audio performance with natural bass and crisp highs. Comfortable fit and visually pleasing design. Includes removable cables with both iOS and Android-compatible in-line remotes.

Not for seekers of booming low-end. Light on accessories besides the cables.

If you're looking for the booming bass sound, and balance is a little less a priority, the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio should satisfy your bass appetite. If the K545's balanced approach to low-end is more your style, the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 is a...

AKG K545

 

The AKGs are built to last and sound insightful enough, but they're lacking in refinement

Sturdy build ; Attractive styling ; Good detail across the board

Unwelcome hardness to the sound ; Short on body and refinement ; No protective case

We love the compact nature of these new AKGs and their stylish, solid build will go a long way to convincing potential owners as will their detailed and punchy sound.

AKG K545

 

The AKG K545 is a headphone pair for lovers of balanced, crisp audio, with plenty of bass that doesn't get insanely boosted.

On tracks with intense sub-bass, like the Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the AKG K545 delivers some serious thunder without distorting, even at top, unsafe listening levels. The sound signature, however, is nicely balanced out with some crisp highs that keep...

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

Great sound, but fragile construction?

 

The headphones arrived and looked great, however on further inspection the earpiece on one side was moving on it's axis a little "too" freely. Not sure if the hinge was broken in transit or a manufacturing fault, which is a shame as the headphones...
