AKG K495 Premium Active Noise Cancelling Headphones - Black
[gallery columns="4" orderby="rand"]
2nd time unlucky
My most disappointing headphone purchase so far - promised so much, but - I feel there is a blatant design flaw with the left side housing (that holds the electronics / battery for the noise cancellation circuit).. As soon as you put these on your head, you can hear on the left side, the driver diaphragm compressing (you'll hear it as a crunching sound), the first pair I had was broken from the get-go (maybe a previously returned product!?) with a massive channel imbalance / distortion on the bass / distant sounding, got a replacement - and, whilst this sounded a fair bit better, the driver crunching noise was still apparent when putting on the head, and taking off, so - I have returned (ironically, in nearly five years of transactions on Amazon, this is my first refund request)...
...All of this means, even if you get a good set from the get go, odds on, with the driver diaphragn crunching in and out due to the air pressure on the left side, it is pretty much a given that...
