AKG Q460 Signature Edition Quincy Jones High Performance Foldable Mini Headphones – : not happy with this purchase, returned them eventually

I bought this during the christmas day. But the plastic matieral bring some different.

Are preliminary listen towas confused between akg k450 and q460 ,worthy choice ,deep and enough bass, full alto , highpiping is also good. Believe could have a better performance before long. And i prefer pop , it suit meover again ,pleasure to do business with, thank you.

5 star sound 3 stars build quality. Yes, it’s true, these head phones and the cables are quite delicate. One speaker malfunctioned after 2 months or so, but this was resolved instantly by amazon’s impeccable service. Do i still recomend them though?.Yes, very much so, because they sound sweeeet. Balanced, natural and paced. They excell where it’s important, the midrange.

I’ve owned these for about 8 months, using them daily on my commute. I love the volume and pause feature for iphone on the cable. I’ve treated them fairly roughly, rarely using the box, but have had no problems. Although the cable looks flimsy it appears to be quite tough. I also like the fact that the cable is replaceable even if it is £20 for a new one – better than new headphones. They sound great, are comfortable and dull outside noise reasonably – not as well as a full size sealed type, obviously. Update: october 2015, only one new cable in 3 and a half years of daily use, still going strong, great headphones.

Great headphones, alright cable. I had bought a pair of akg q460 in 2010. These headphones not only have a great sound but have also lasted me for 8 years. Mine finally died on me properly in 2018. The reason i give these headphones 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the cable. I have probably gone through over 20 cables in the past 8 years. Which isn’t that bad considering i don’t have to go and buy new headphone altogether. Cables have ranged between £3-£12 ($5-$16). I originally bought my headphones for about $248 in 2010. They were quincy jones edition, so they were a little bit more pricy than the norm.

Very nice, so much better than skullcandy. I have been looking for a pair of foldable on ear headphones to take to college with me everyday. I looked briefly at scullcandy but decided against them. Most of my friend own and love skullcandy headphones but anyone who takes sound seriously will know that they sound horrible and break after like 2 months. To be more exact, the bass leaks very far into the mids making them almost indistinguishable; they sound as if there is a building falling down in the background. I think i should note though that the akg k450 headphones are actually exactly the same sound-wise as these, these are just redesigned to look nicer. I considered only giving them 4 stars because of this, but that would be silly because if i am prepared to pay £20 more for the headphones to be green then then thats up to me and not the company that makes them. Sound from these is clear and not muffled/ rumbly like cheaper headphones. You can hear each instrument very clearly as well as vocals.

Got them 3 hours ago, and i’ve been testing them out with all sorts of music (dance, pop, dubstep, dnb, rock and even classical) and i have to say, they’re great. The sound is crisp and clear, and they still feel very comfortable (though i’ve had them on for 3 hours). Size wise: they’re big enough to create a seal around your ears to eliminate any outside noise. I only have the volume half way up, and i can’t hear anything else except my music. They come in a hard black pouch which is properly padded, so no need to worry that they’ll break any time soon. On the down side, i’m not sure how long the ear padding will last though, as it doesn’t look like treated leather and the description is “supersoft ear pads”. Overall, i would definitely recommend them, considering that their standard price is 129. 99£ and amazon sells them with 53.

Great sound, very portable, terrible cable. Firstly, not sure what’s up with the price from amazon, they are under 100 in most places. Just got this for travelling and they are very portable, fold into a package that is easily pocketable. You also get a sturdy case that’s not too big if you don’t want to preserve them better. Otherwise use a sock?you get 1 cable with mic/volume ~1m in lime green () which works with apple devices including iphone/itouch 4, if you use a different device the mic might not be recognised. You also get a normal cable ~50cm (also lime) which is so short it’s next to useless. Both are very thin (for portability?) that does raise questions as to their life expectancy. I’m buying a thicker, longer (1m), black replacement cable. The on the ear closed design works and does isolate you from the background noise pretty well; they won’t beat active noise cancelling but they work well for me. I find them confortable considering i prefer over the ear versions.

Very good, but if you prefer more basses, 450 might be better. Good love, better then 420 450,.

Not happy with this purchase, returned them eventually. I’m not a audiophile, so i think the sound reproduction is quite good and enough for me. But i have to say, other than this, there are several obvious and severe problems that cannot be ignored. Firstly, the two parts with the “q”s on each phone are actually two plastic plates that are attached to the headphones. Unfortunatly, the one on the left phone is quite loose, which means it wobbles, and with every movement of my head, it makes sound which i can hear clearly while listening to music. Moreover, i ordered a replacement for the 1st one i bought, but i was astonished that the replacement had the exact same problem. (i’m sure it’s another pair)secondly, also for both the original and the replacement, the in-line remote control does not work with my ipod classic, but i think it’s because my ipod is quite old as i got it about 4 years ago. Never tried with an iphone, but doesn’t work with moto milestone 2 (android)as well. Thirdly, they are a bit tight i think. I don’t have a big head, actually some of my friends refer to me when they talk about someone with a small head.

The black one is quite cool. I would definitely recommend this to others. The case included in the package with the headphone is also very good.

Nice quality, can worked well with most of the smartphones and player. It is a pity that it need 200 hrs playing to show its best acoustic, but it deserve that.

Nice phones for music fans, not perfect. Firstly, i must say i’m sure quincy is almost deaf by now, so im not sure what he’s doing with his own line of headphones. Almost makes as much sense as dre having his own line of headphones. =ponto the product, durability is reasonable for such dainty phones, i wouldn’t take them out without the case i’ll say that, but they’ve lasted me about a year now through all my bus/car rides. So it’s just about looking after them, a fair bit of misplaced pressure would probably easily snap the hinges. But i still have the original cables and everything. Finish is spot on, love the green, looks a little bit different without drawing too much attention. Which is what i wanted, something compact i didn’t feel silly walking down the street in, but a little more pro than in ear buds. Fit may vary from person to person, to get the best balanced tone from these you do have to spend a little time seating them right so the seal is tight against your ears. Once they’re in place they’re comfy and not intrusive at all.

I have loved the headphone since i bought them from here and i woke today morning and am so dissapointed that they stopped working. After careful scrutiny,i realised it was the cable that connects to the headphones. There is a second cable that comes with them but it is too short. It makes it hard to use unless you are near to the object and it has no microphone. I don’t even know how to get a replacement because i bought them around march 2012. It hasn’t even lasted a year. Good headphones but 3 stars for the cable. Wish they had easier customer care.

Very nice, great sound, fast delivery, nice package. Delivered in time basing on what estimated. Great sound and total isolation :)i neede also the mic to manage the cell phone.

When i been given this item, the box was broken. And i used for a number of months but.

Are preliminary listen towas baffled between akg k450 and q460 ,worthy choice ,deep and more than enough bass, full alto , highpiping is also good. Imagine could have a improved performance just before lengthy. And i choose pop , it suit meover again ,pleasure to do enterprise with, thank you.

I first bought an iphone 4s. I desired a trusted headphone for my iphone and i made the decision to examine as a lot of manufacturers as i can. I have an ipod basic 120gb as effectively and i have bose for people, not the most recent technology and sounds cancelling but the silent comfort and ease three styles. I am really delighted it and i purchased from nyc apple store in soho. I are living in istanbul now and i made a decision to go for a different brand name because bose is extremely costly and pricy in this article.

5 star seem three stars make high quality. Certainly, it is really true, these head telephones and the cables are really delicate. 1 speaker malfunctioned after 2 months or so, but this was resolved instantly by amazon’s impeccable provider. Do i even now recomend them although?.Yes, very considerably so, because they sound sweeeet. Balanced, organic and paced. They excell in which it’s crucial, the midrange.

Excellent seem, superb benefit. I acquired this for my teenage son who wanted a further manufacturer, beats, but i did my exploration and it was recommended that i tried these as they were being just as superior if not far better. He was doubtful as it was not the one he wanted but following striving it out on his phone and mp3 i bought a major smile and a hug and was requested who advised me to get them. He is incredibly delighted with them and takes them everywhere you go he goes including the studio. Quite happy with my acquire and even happier that i bought them at a discount value. Speedy shipping and delivery and effectively packaged. They appear with a spare lead for an iphone, it’s individual perfectly created circumstance and so on.

        Nice head phones but ruined by proprietary cable. As above, the headphones are pretty good and the sound quality is awesome. However they come with 2 proprietary cable that locks in to the headphones. One which is long enough reach any device that you would need but only seems to give a decent sound quality on an iphone, and the other which is so short that it is of no use on it’s own and you will have to buy an extension. Complaints to akg come back with a gruff comment of “tough”. Nice product shame about the accessories, if only they considered this, i would give these a 5star review.

    Akg q460 quincy jones black. . I really like headphones great for sound and portability but there are mayor problems with the headphone cables. I have the black and green headphones and within 1 month the cable broke and i had tried to contact akg about this but i did not have the receipt for the headphones as they where bought for me as a present i think they where bought in usa and japan but i had to pay £38. 00 for two replacements cables and now they are starting to come apart ,so be aware of this problem because it may cost a lot to keep getting replacement cables.
