Not sure what all the fuss is about,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AKG K451 High-Performance Foldable Mini Headset with In-Line Remote and Mic - Black (Electronics)
I bought these on the basis of the reviews here and the Which Best Buy recommendation. To be quite honest I am not sure why so many people think these are great. The build quality isn't particularly special, especially the inline remote and the leads feel cheap and the inline remote doesn't work on mine anyway so I guess I'll just have to use the cable that doesn't have it. They are light to wear which is good but they actually press against my ears quite hard and for some reason I get neck ache after 10 minutes of wearing. So, points for comfort? No. I wouldn't care so much about those things if the sound quality was as good as described in other reviews but it just isn't. I am not finding anything exceptional about the sound quality at all. It's okay, but I have a £30 pair of Warfdale headphones which are at least as good. I am left wondering why people rate these headphones so highly? I wouldn't recommend these...at £50 they are a little on the expensive side for what you get. Oh, the case is quite nice...I do like the case!
