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 N60 NC noise cancelling headphones review


AKG is no stranger to making solid sets of cans, and one of the the company's pair aims to give you peace and quiet while you're on the move. Meet the noise cancelling AKG N60 NC headphones, a pair of portable cans that can fold up neatly, and promise...

AKG has a track record of making great sounding, attractive headphones, and the N60 NC pair of cans are no exception. With a slick black finish with leather materials and a foldable aluminium frame, they’re comfortable on the head, and memory foam...

AKG’s latest headphones are as close to perfect as you can get for portable noise cancelling cans - but we still do have a few gripes with them. We’re not fans of the proprietary charging cable for starters, as with USB on one end and a 3.5mm jack on...

The AKG N60 NC headphones are a fantastic lightweight noise cancelling option to take on the go, with an impressively large sound stage considering the small size, stylish looks and solid comfort. While the £230 price tag may be hard to swallow, it’s...

So why get the AKG N60 NC over the Bose QC25? Well, for starters it takes up a little less room in your bag. This is a smaller, on-ear headphone (it's better suited to smaller heads) and folds up and flat to fit in an included neoprene carrying case,...

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 NC headphones deliver balanced, laudable audio performance and solid noise cancellation in a travel-friendly design.

Powerful, balanced audio performance. Solid noise cancellation. Can be used passively. Includes removable cable. Comfortable design that folds down for easy stowing.

Noise cancellation creates audible hiss. Not for those seeking booming bass.
