People will definitely see you coming in these AKG headphones.
The luminous green cable sticks out a mile (although black and white are also available).
They’re light, even by in-ear standards and trying the three sizes of supplied tips ensures a snug fit. They’re also fitted with an in-line mic and volume control.
Being part of AKG’s Quincy Jones Signature Line, you’d think that sound quality would be up to a decent standard, but you’d be wrong.
They produce quite an attacking, powerful sound. Bass notes hit the listener with force, but higher frequencies sound seriously coloured and coarse.
There’s a real lack of refinement, which makes for an iffy listen.
