If you know music, then you know Quincy Jones. From his work with Michael Jackson and Frank Sinatra, to a 3-figure collection of GRAMMY nominations and awards, Jones is one of the few real music legends who has completely redefined music as we know it. And does he slap his name on just any music gear? NO WAY! This guy's reputation is serious business. That's why it's so jaw-droppingly awesome that the man, Quincy Jones himself agreed to a signature line of headphones made by AKG. Why AKG? Simple - these are the 'phones Jones himself uses. We're talking about a dude who could use any headphones he wants, and this is the lineup he says have "the best quality sound I've heard, ever."

"I visit more than a dozen countries every year, and these are the headphones I want with me."
AKG® Acoustics was founded in 1947 in Vienna, Austria. The company quickly established a reputation for superior microphones and other audio equipment in radio stations, theaters and jazz clubs around Europe.
More than 60 years and 1,500 patents later, the AKG® brand is one of the most famous in professional audio-producing microphones, headphones and wireless technology for recording studios, radio and TV stations and opera houses. AKG equipment has gone on tour with Frank Sinatra, Eric Clapton, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and Kanye West. In 2010, AKG engineers received a GRAMMY® award for their technological innovations and contributions to the music industry.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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).

For me, though, these got boxed back up for a return in <10 minutes because I, being a gentleman of larger stature (and a big noggin), am evidently not within the design parameters for the physical "reach" of these headphones. Unfortunately if I have the headband positioned properly (so the phones don't fall off my head) the ear cups are about 1/2" too high on each side with the bands fully extended. Bummer.
Note: the 2 cables that come with the headphones are best described as "moderately short" and "very short". Probably okay if you've got your phone in your pocket, but if you're sitting at a desk at work you're going to want an extension cable.
Another note: I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how to get the headphones to seat comfortably in the carrying case. There are molded areas where everything should fit, but it just seemed like the case was a bit narrower than the headphones. With the extra cables and adapters tucked away in the opposite side of the case from the headphones the cover didn't seem to close properly (I'd be concerned with things breaking due to crush pressure in the long run).
Since I am not an audiophile I don't feel particularly qualified to comment on the sound quality (which I feel is good) so I'll focus more on other areas.
They are excellent for travel. My wife throws them in her purse every day and brings them home (which is awesome for me to play the PS VIta). The case is maybe a bit bulky, but considering these aren't earbud's that isn't really a knock against them.
They are very comfortable for her*. They aren't your typical large over the ear headphones--they are actually surprisingly smallish. But they fit her well and she says they don't bother her by the end of the day.
Sound is good. Again, not an audiophile but had to throw in that I felt that the sound for these is very good. I use these to play my PS Vita at home and they are great. My wife also says they sound great.
*Comfort for me. I won't say I have a big head (insert joke here), but it's probably not small either? I do get a little bit of soreness around my ears after a couple hours. I likely just need to adjust them more--which I haven't done much.
In all I think these are very good headphones and would buy a pair for myself.
