Says Quincy, " I visit more than a dozen countries every year, and these are the headphones I want with me."

Highlights



The Q 460's high-excursion driver is extremely accurate to produce wide dynamic range with high ouput.

Legendary AKG® build quality and sound reproduction.

As with all our products at AKG®, the first emphasis is the sound. The studio standard for decades, AKG has taken its legendary build quality and added an extra level of durability into the Q 460s to withstand the rigors of travel and heavy use. The Q 460s' 40mm high-excursion driver produces accurate, dynamic sound designed for high output. This means you get distortion-free, dynamic sound you can really feel in the lower frequencies. And with their remarkable linear frequency response and 99.99% oxygen-free cables, Q 460s reproduce reference-quality music exactly as the artist intended.

The Q 460's earpads are comfortable enough for even the longest trips.

Comfortable and portable. By design.

Comfort and convenience are everything on the road. What good is a high-quality headset if it's too warm, too tight, doesn't sufficiently block out ambient noise or doesn't have the connectivity required to listen to your music across multiple platforms? Every detail of the Q 460s has been painstakingly designed to ensure you get studio quality sound, no matter where you go or how hard you travel. Supersoft, circumaural ear pads combine with the Q460s closed-back, lightweight design to block out most ambient noise and with our patented 3D-Axis2 folding mechanism, Q460s fold away flat into a hard carrying case for easy portability.

The unique 3D-Axis folding design means that the Q 460 headphones won't take up too much space when on the go.

Connect to just about anything, just about anywhere.

Connect to your favorite music from virtually any portable player with all the dynamics you expect - and Quincy Jones demands - from AKG®. Q460s are the perfect partner for use with smartphones, allowing you to make and receive calls as well as control several music playback functions of the iPhone with its in-line remote control. Each Q 460 comes with a flight adapter, a 2.5mm adapter for older Blackberry devices and a 6.3mm adapter for home electronic systems.

An innovative in-line microphone and remote makes using your smartphone seamless.

Touch and go - smart-phone ready.

Q460s are the perfect partner for use with smartphones allowing you to make and receive calls from any portable phone. Plus, they work seamlessly with iPhone devices. With their ingenious three-button remote, Q460s can control the music playback functions (play, pause, skip tracks and volume). They also come standard with an in-line microphone that works with any and all mobile phones.

Innovative cabling.

We never compromise at AKG® and, to ensure you get the best possible audio signal from amplifier to eardrum, we have engineered the same level of quality and revolutionary technology into the Q 460s' cable assembly as we have in the headset itself. We optimize oxygen-free cables for maximized sound reproduction and made them single-sided to be tangle free and detachable, for portability. Each Q 460 comes equipped with the standard cable and a shorter, 4-foot communication cable (works with iPhone devices).

    I am not what you would consider a professional musician by any means. However, I have spent my fair share of time in the studio and have a degree in electronic media. After 2 weeks with these, my memory cannot recollect having heard headphones this good in...well, ever.

    I was in the market for new headphones and when I heard that Quincy Jones was releasing a pair, I had to check em out. Then when I heard they were better than the Dre Beats, I definitely knew I had to get a pair. The only thing is that I was debating whether to purchase the Q460's or the 701's. Having purchased the 460's, I dont know if I will go forward with the 701's or not. These are that good. And as was mentioned in an earlier review, the sound quality seems to be getting better the more I listen to them. I went back and listened to some Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and whatever else I could find from that timeframe. Man, I heard things I've never noticed in those recordings before, both good and bad. It felt like the music was being played to me live from my ipod, and that is about the best compliment I can give. I dont know how the Q701's can possibly be better than these, but I intend to purchase them as well, although they may not be needed. The base thumps, but doesnt pound (although I havent run any old-school Miami bass through them yet). The snares are crisp, high hats ping and resonate accurately. Just a fantastic soundstage. I plan to watch a movie on my iMac soon through these to see how the surround sound plays out. They are really comfortable to wear and shut out most outside sound. I couldnt hear myself singing and I only had my volume up halfway. I actually had to pull one headphone away from my ear to make sure I wasnt just lip-syncing!!

    I was wondering why there were so many 2 star and 3 star reviews on this model. Where I live (Germany), there are places where you could test-listen 30~40 headphones at once. I tested 30 headphones for 2 hours, and this one was hands-down winner for portable source devices. Everything was perfekt: sound stage, comfort, clarity, highs, mid-range, lows, you name it. I tested against products many times more expensive than this one (Sennheiser, Dr. Dre, Denon, B&W, B&O, etc.). It's easy on any device with 125 db sensitivity. Without a headphone amp, it sounds great with I-Pod, Lumia and Galaxy S3, and heavenly with the venerable Astell & Kern AK100. See my review for this one here: Astell&Kern AK100 Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) Portable System The best thing about this headset is comfort -- easily the most comfortable set on the head, with no listening fatigue.

    So I ordered one from eBay. I was surprised when it arrived -- the sound was totally different! Packaging was identical. Appearance was identical. But the sound was different. Highs were absent. It was all bass. So I looked closer. The cable was not as easy to put in -- the turning mechanism was not as smooth, and turned only about 70 degrees instead of full 90. Head size adjustment part has overall rough feel, as if cheaply made. There was a warranty card, but the paper used was not top quality and fine prints were very difficult to read, as if printed with a cheap inkjet printer.

    After further research on the Internet, I discovered there were incredible number of fake Q460 and even more K450 around. See, for instance, the picture explanations and reviews by HHAH here.

    If you are someone that doesn't sweat the small stuff then you will love this headphone. The overall look and quality of the materials seem very good. They come with a nice case and choice of cabling as well as a few adapters for phones and larger amplifiers. The sound is very "consumer" and bass friendly... but i will talk about that in a bit.

    My biggest problem OUT OF THE BOX is that one of the circular Q symbols is misaligned, off-center, and peeling off!!! As i said, the rest of the build is great but this one piece really annoys, concerns, and angers me. So much so that I will be retuning this set :( I really don't want to though. Another small gripe is that the cable is stiff to pull out but locks fairly well... I don't have to discuss how awesome the lime green cable looks and feels so that is all good. Strain reliefs are well made but the hole to insert the cable is a bit too small or oddly shaped. The cable issue i can look past though.

    Finally on to the consumer sound... I have owned many a pair of headphones in the past and currently own the (excellent) AKG k240 and Shure se215. Both are great sounding products. I have also tried many sennhieser and akg products, as well as the Vmoda M80 and phiaton ms400. Overall, i would say the sound is very similar to the Phiatons and Sennheiser HD 239. It has a heavy emphasis on bass to the point that it mess up the vocals considerably. However it performs great with hip hop, some dubstep, and house music, It fails considerably with any rock or alternative (a large part of my library). Granted, much of "todays" music will play fine on this set but expect no sparkle in the highs at all. I can, however, live with the sound signature as I tend to opt for rap or electronic music while on the go.
