Take High Performance with you
Quality, portability and elegance. Those are the qualities that the AKG K 452 foldable on-ear-headphone is all about.
AKG Signature Sound
For more than 65 years, musicians and audio engineers have used AKG technology within the studio for vocal performances, instrumentation, mixing, mastering and engineering. In the K 452's, this sought-after sound is now available for you to experience and enjoy.
Comfort On the Go. By Design
Comfort and convenience are everything on the road. What good is a high-quality headset if it's too warm, too tight, doesn't sufficiently block out ambient noise or doesn't have the connectivity required to listen to your music across multiple platforms? Every detail of the K 452s has been painstakingly designed to ensure you get studio quality sound, no matter where you go or how hard you travel. Super soft ear pads combine with the K 452s closed-back, lightweight design to block out most ambient noise and with AKG patented 3D-Axis2 folding mechanism, K 452s fold away flat into a hard carrying case for easy portability.

The two removable cables (both simple and inline control versions) are a bonus too, clicking in on one side and making for a comfortable listen. With extended sessions, though, you’ll feel like a rest from them!
Initially I wasn’t overwhelmed with the sound quality, quite muddy, but they seemed to settle down after a bit of a run in. Attached to an iPad Air playing streamed FLAC files the bass is tight, accurate and punchy (only really used to this with inner ear ‘phones!). Treble is crisp and not harsh. They seem to be accurate and not exaggerated, which is ideal. Voices are clear and it is easy to just relax with these and just enjoy your music. An Android phone was also clear and punchy with the inline play/pause working fine.
Listened to acoustic male and female singers and also rock and all sounded very good. Not the last word in hi-fi sound, I think clarity could be a little better, but very good for the £50 or so they are going for normally. I don’t think you would find better for the money and the bass, in particular, was a nice surprise. The compact / folding aspect is a useful feature making them very good for travellers.
Now, whilst these aren't any good for using in the studio, they're great for entertainment purposes.
The low end is full, rich but not overpowering with the high end being present and clean. The mids take a bit of a beating because of this, but hey, they're designed to make your music sound loud and full of energy, not be flat.
These are now my go-to headphones for when i'm listening to music on my laptop.
I've been using them for over a month now and the quality seems as good as AKG has ever been (I still have my K241s which are over 10 years old). The cable is detachable and comes with a spare one (including an android compatible remote attached). However, even if you're unlucky enough to lose both of these, the cable is just a standard 3.5mm Jack so can be replaced easily.
The only slight downsides for me personally:
- They're quite small: I have quite a big head. Not MASSIVE, but not small either, and I need them extended to their maximum length to fit my ear. And even then, i need to position the band towards the front of my head so they're positioned correctly. Because of this, i don't find them very comfortable to listen over an extended period of time (2 hours +)
- I didn't use the case it came with as i found it a bit of a nuisance to pack the headphones into. But, i didn't expect a case anyway, so basically.. I'm trying to think of negatives for the sake of it.
Overall, great headphones. Full 5 stars.
The audio quality on these phones is very good for the money, but in my opinion not as fantastic as many reviews suggest. The bass is very good and doesn't suffer at low volumes like many headphones. This, along with the closed-back design makes these ideal for use on the train - you can hear your music without it being too loud, but no one else can. They're very comfortable too.
The only thing I don't like is the stereo image, which I find to be a bit flat. It could do with a bit more fizz. But to put things into perspective I normally use much more expensive headphones (bigger + open back). Even so, if you listen mostly to classical music I would try some other phones before committing to these. If you listen to pop then get these - you can't go wrong for the money.
The travel case is good quality, and the additional cable (without a button/microphone) is a nice touch. It's a shame the cable connection is proprietary, but at least you can change the cable if it breaks - and you get a spare.
I would definitely buy these again.
However I still took the gamble buying this product for 3 reasons:
- It comes with two cables (one with a mic for mobile phones) and the other is a aux cable
- The reviews all mentioned how great they sound (which I strongly agree with)
- I was was under the impression the cable was a standard AUX cable, therefore it could be replaced cheaply if the cable broke
With the final point I was wrong. The headphones have a groove in them for specific AKG cables, a standard AUX cable will not do the job.
It may seem harsh rating a product 3* even though I had read previous reviews about the cable before purchasing it, however I was genuinely shocked at how thin and flimsy the cable actually is.
