I needed some headphones for use on the train and in the office. I already have a pair of beloved Sennheiser HD560 Ovation II's which cost nearly 2 weeks wages back when I was 19.

Twenty years on I still know why the Sennheisers changed what I thought about headphones, they are outstanding. But they are huge and clumsy and being open backed, leak sound so badly they are nowhere near suitable for office use.

So I just bought the AKG's. I was attracted to K452's as they are the android compatible update to the K451 which has received some very positive reviews. Closed back and highly portable and at 60 a reasonable price for “good” headphones.
Overall I am really impressed, they are very comfortable, have a pleasant sound, convincing bass and barely leak at all even at moderate listening levels. The nice travel case and replaceable lead (there is even a spare lead with no remote included) give the impression they will last a while.

Considering the “fashion” headphones at this price point and how terrible they sound in comparison ( yes I did try some Beats Audio cans for a laugh ), I think these are very good value.

Some compromise had to be made though...There would be something very wrong if a pair of highly portable closed can travel headphones could compete with my beloved Sennheisers. But by golly the AKG's have a good stab at it. It's probably fair to say though that they aren't challenging enough to be a serious listening headphone.
Their character is completely different and perhaps somehow more neutral although there is a definite warmness which makes them very easy to listen to but might annoy some listeners.

4.0 out of 5 stars My son loves these 7 Feb 2014
Colour Name:white|Verified Purchase
My 13-year old son and I looked through lots of reviews to find a pair of hearphones for him to skype with his friends. Sadly, one of the dogs ate them. But, we are immediately coming back to purchase them again. A good solid, good value set of earphones. If only I could replace the dog so easily!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value, well-built, but too much fake bass 26 May 2014

AKG k 452

I spent a fair while looking for a decent pair of headphones for the daily commute - really hankered after some Bose noise isolators to hush my journey but couldn't justify the 300+ price tag.

The previous AKG model got a LOT of good reviews on here, the AKG K 452 seem identical apart from the inclusion of an inline microphone for mobile calls.

It's something I've rarely used but it does work very well, as the headphones do offer a decent amount of noise isolation when worn - you don't get anywhere near Bose levels, but you need to take them off to hear clearly, even if the music has stopped. So, if annoying people on the train by making loud and lengthy phone calls is your style - this makes it even easier and totally hands-free.

Sonically they do take a while to run in, mine have quite definitely opened up over three months - becoming clearer across the mid and top end. They were disappointingly muddy when first used - which was heightened by a very heavy bass response - which is still present but lessened by the top end becoming more prominent.

Should volume be required, the AKG has stacks of it - I've yet to use it all. The spill seems very small, I don't want fellow passengers to critique my eclectic musical taste and they are effective at preventing that.

I find the sound coloured and way too bassy, if you listen to a lot of electronic music for example, you may like that aspect but across a range of music they are simply too bass heavy for my taste, almost as if there is a 'bass boost' button switched on.

Colour Name:white|Verified Purchase
I've always liked the AKG brand. I love their sound signature, which is neutral but not overly clinical and cold. I bought two other AKG headphones before, the Q 701 and AKG K 420. I enjoy using the Q 701 at home for serious listening sessions. When I'm on the computer though, I listen to my Sennheiser Momentums which are also amazing headphones for their price. They are somewhat portable but not that much. So I wanted to buy a pair of headphones which I can carry around easily and can also use to answer calls while listening to music from my phone. AKG K 420s, which are really good for their cheap price, can't do that.

First, I gave Sennheiser Momentum on-ears a try. They sound almost as good as the regular Momentums (85 % as good) but in spite of being smaller, they aren't very portable either. They're not foldable and their case is somewhat big, especially compared to AKG K 452s'. They are marketed as iDevice headphones but some buttons work for Android devices as well. Later, I saw that the new version of the award winning K 451, K 452 was released and now it had support for Android devices as well. That was good news, except the fact that there were no volume buttons. I was attracted by the good price on Amazon and bought the headphones. I've listened to various music genres on them, and right now I'm listening to Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys on lossless quality. I must say they sound amazing for such small headphones at such a low price. The mids and bass are incredible. Treble is good as well but don't expect a bright sound. The headphones have a warm yet exciting sounding, kind of similar to Sennheiser Momentums, and forgiving on recordings with lower quality as they're portable headphones.
