so what is everyones thoughts on the akg k480nc's im thinking about buying them as a good portable headphone
For an on-ear design, the AKG K 480 NC headphones do an excellent job of canceling out noise while giving good playback of the audio. However, I find that they are not the best at noise canceling. Around-the-ear design does that as the ear muff helps provide an "acoustic" chamber for the noise canceling to operate in.
The flipside is that the around-the-ear design does weigh a lot more and some find them uncomfortable. Personally, I use ear buds as I find they help block out noise just by design (they fill your ear canal). You may want to look at the AKG K 390 NC headphones as well.
Anyone have other thoughts?
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
