AKG N60NC Wireless review


Wireless noise-cancellation from the mid-range master

Great sound ; Battery life ; Compact design

On-ear form-factor gets uncomfortable ; Initially confusing controls

The AKG N60NC Wireless offers a surprisingly competent combination of excellent sound quality and noise cancellation. The headphones are well designed and built, and are much better looking than their competitors. All while sitting at a much cheaper...

AKG N60 NC Wireless


AKG N60 NC Wireless review: AKG has ditched the wires for its new noise-cancelling headphones. But are they as good as the original N60 NC?

Excellent sound ; Lightweight ; Collapsible design ; Good noise cancellation

Could have more padding on the headband ; No NFC

Super-portable noise-cancelling cans, the AKG N60 NC Wireless offer a fun and enthusiastic sound – all without wires.

AKG N60 NC review


If you're in the market for a premium noise-canceling headphone, chances are you're looking at one of the Bose models, the QuietComfort 25 (around-ear) or QuietComfort 20 . We gave high ratings to those products and -- in terms of noise-canceling...

The AKG N60 NC is a compact, comfortable, well-designed on-ear headphone that sounds really good for a model with active noise cancellation. The rechargeable battery offers 30 hours of listening time.

Charging cable isn't the standard Micro-USB variety; single-button remote lacks volume controls.

Despite a few small downsides, AKG's $250 on-ear active noise-canceling headphone sounds great and is a worthy alternative to Bose's top-selling QuietComfort 25.

The AKG N60 are headphones firmly aimed at those who are out and about. They're portable, light and also feature active noise cancellation, which helps to drown out ambient noise such as annoyingly loud conversations on the tube or the rumbling of a...

Light, elegant and extremely portable design ; Comfortable to wear for long periods ; Active noise cancelling is excellent ; Warm, full-bodied sound quality

USB end of the cable a little flimsy ; No Bluetooth wireless support

The portable design and the impressive noise cancellation make these great-sounding on-ears a commuter's best friend.

AKG N60NC review

  (Rating Hidden)

The AKG N60NC headphones promise 'first-class' noise cancelling, so they might tempt the commuter who wants to shut out background chatter. But are they worth the steep price of more than £200? We took them to our lab to find out.

AKG N60 NC review: Classy headphones that look (and sound) the part


Effective noise cancellation and top sound quality, AKG's on-ear headphones are exceptionally good

Generally, the AKG N60 NC are fantastic headphones. They sound great. They feel great. They’re effective at cancelling out all but the worst of ambient noise.
