Our Verdict Given the Quincy Jones connection, these in-ears are huge let-down For Light good bass Against Treble is coloured and coarse Reviewed on 17th May 2011 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. More after the break There’s a real lack of refinement, which makes for an iffy listen.
