Great value headphone with a clean and clear sound
Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2017
Normally I refrain from writing reviews, most experiences have been shared and I normally feel I do not have much to add.
For this headphone I have doubted a long time whether or not I should purchase it in favour of, for example, the Bose NC line.
I love audio, I have a ear for detail in music and I enjoy music more when I hear such details.
Knowing the reputation of AKG, I knew that the sound, produced by the headphone, would be clear and clean, but I read several reviews of the NC-function allegedly producing some sort of static sound. This held me back in purchasing this headphone at first, after all, I would like to listen to my music as clear as I can for a decent price.
So looking at the price and the majority of reviews being positive I decided to buy this headphone because the alternative headphones where more expensive and I am not to excited by the sound Bose produces with its products.
After having used this headphone in several moderate to loud noisy environments, I can definitely say that the NC is doing a very good job and to me enhances my music experience in a positive way.
The static noise I mentioned before is not audible to me for I haven't been anywhere where it is so quiet you can hear a pin drop. Which also raises the question if one should be using a NC headphone in environments where there is barely any noise.
Secondly an argument that held me back in buying this headphone is the argument that the sound would be 'flat'. Often the author of the review would state that they ment that there was a lack of bass produced by the headphones.
Listening to the AKG now I can not understand why one would actually experience a 'flat' sound with these headphones unless that person would have impaired hearing.
This headphone gives a very natural sound, well balanced, as I said before, you can hear a lot of details, precisely as the artist intended it to sound.
I am very happy with this headphone and I would strongly recommend it if you are in the market for a NC headphone.
