First off; the fit. I have often had problems in the past with uncomfortable fitting phones. The N40s loop over the ear and then fit snugly in place. This keeps them from getting snagged and falling out. I have to say, they fit incredibly well (for me at least). I can wear them for a long time without discomfort.
Second; the sound. I was concerned that there would not be that great a difference from the Sennheiser's, but Christ, these sound like nothing else I have ever listened too. Incredible.
It comes with three filters that alter the sound (reference, bass boost, high boost). These are a bit fiddly to change but do make a difference. Having tried them all I have stuck with the reference filters - I like dance music, bass and all but the reference filters are not lacking in this dept and I prefer not to distort music when listening to other genres.
Overall, these cost a lot of money, but get 5/5 for comfort and for sound quality. If you want some exceptional head phones and can afford it I would definitely recommend these.
I researched quite a bit before buying and I noted the review on What HiFi. Before purchasing I also considered RHA earbuds for similar price range. I also own Momentum headphones which provide great playback quality and previously own RHA until they were stolen. I have a Linn setup in the house,so quality is important for me.
I like driving music within decent bass, like trance, but will listen to anything really. I don’t want the bass to be overpowering, but in balance with the mid bass and treble.
Ok so the Akg N40 are ok by themselves with both hi res and standard compressed audio files.
What is disappointing was that I expected more clarity and better sound stage. They just felt rather dull and average. Also disappointing was the selection of ear tips. The selection is extremely limited and didn’t really give a good fit for my ears I didn’t have the same issue with the previously owned RHA buds. Not great given the price paid.
However I purchased after market memory foam buds for approx £10 and they provided immediate improvement.
The next upgrade was the Dragonfly DAC / preamp (I went with black) and to be honest the music quality completely changed from being average to completely outstanding!
I always have these buds (with dragonfly) whenever I’m on the move.
They are a great set of buds but be prepared to fork out for extras and at least a preamp DAC like the Drahonfly to get the best from them.
Then I went and bought the shure846 which is sooooo much better, yes its expensive at £800. Well worth it if you listen to music everyday. Also you need a DAC and some good music files
