"You won't want to take these off - not only do they look good, they're excellent sonically, too." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine 5-star review at £79.95

AWARD WINNERS

Following on from the multi-award winning AKG K450 headphones, the replacement K451 design has already scooped a prestigious What Hi-Fi 5-star award. So good, in fact, are these headphones that What Hi-Fi magazine said there was; "nothing at this price" that could be faulted with them - praise indeed!

CLASS-LEADING SOUND QUALITY

High power drive units and a closed-back design give the AKG K451 an intense, powerful sound. Yet, thanks to the innate quality of these headphones, subtle detail is carefully revealed and nuances can clearly be heard. In short, whatever you listen to will be superbly presented and involving.

NOW WITH BUILT-IN MIC FOR USE WITH YOUR IPHONE

New to the K451 is a built-in microphone with volume control. Ideal on a pair of mini headphones likely to be used on the move, this enables you to listen to music and take calls on your Apple iPhone effortlessly.

COMFORTABLE YET DURABLE

The unique 3D-axis mechanism doesn't just make these headphones easy to fold and carry, it also ensures a perfect fit against your ears. The soft, padded, headband and ear pieces simply add to the long term comfort of these headphones. Although lightweight, the K451s are durable. A detachable cable and folding design helps when transporting the headphones but you'll also discover a solid build quality that's a step or two up from many rivals.

With a spec and sound so complete, the AKG K451 headphones are hard to beat.

Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 45 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby overall very good headphones Sound quality did not quite reach the expectation from reviews I had read. The one big annoyance was if there was a slightest wind blowing, background noise from the aerodynamics of the headphones was overwhelmingly apparent. Build quality good. Comfort just average. 07 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Sounds great! Bought some Sony headphones to match my Sony Walkman, but they were dull, bass was muffled and I could only wear them for 10 minutes at a time before they got too uncomfortable. The AKG K451s that I bought to replace the Sony's are the exact opposite - lively, crisp and involved with good bass definition and really comfy to wear. Thanks "What Hi-fi" for the recommendation!! 30 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Very pleased Quality on both my iPod and stereo is excellent. The headphones fold away into a sturdy compact case. Impressed with the build quality and value for money. 26 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent portable headphones I bought these headphones after seing a review of them on the stuff.tv website. I recently had to give my Skullcandy headphones to my son so was looking for a replacement and these do not disappoint! The audio quality is clear and I can hear the full range of tones. They look good, in fact I would much rather be seen wearing these than the inferior Beats by Dre headphones. The cost was one of the main selling points for these. You definitely cannot go wrong with these for ú49.99. 19 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Audio quality Better than I expected. They work well with hearing aids and the foldability is great. 15 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby What HiFi were right! I spent some time checking reviews of these AKG K451 headphones, and found conflicting comments. What I can do is confirm that What Hifi were right, these are excellent headphones even straight out of the box with no burn in time. My requirements were for a compact set of 'on-ear' folding headphones. This obviously means certain compromises need to be made, so the 451s will not match up to larger more expensive headphones, but for ú50 are excellent performers. Build quality feels good and though I have only had them a few days, don't feel that anything is likely to break. On-ear pressure is quite firm and for extended listening sessions can start to become uncomfortable, but all headphones do after a while anyway. There is sound leakage, so you can't use these at high volumes without people nearby hearing something, but at moderate volumes this should not be a problem. Very pleased I went with these. 10 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Neat, small, good case, good single wire. Great for music. 01 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good quality and comfortable I purchased these as an easily portable headset to carry around and use at work. Come with a case and 2 leads and they fold up neat for storage. Sound quality is excellent and they are comfortable to rear even on my big head. 27 February 2014

If you have previously placed an order on our website, you will be offered an alternative delivery address if your order value is
