"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 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ahead as aTravellers Bargain Having owned a pair of AKG 430's for ages, I need a new pair suitable for travelling especially on flights Having read reviews the K451 became my first choice and a flight to Ireland proved that these were so much better. Highly impressed by the all round performance. 23 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sound quality, comfortable and portable Read the reviews and was still surprised by the quality of sound. They are light weight and comfortable but most of all sonically they are great. Superb value for money, buy them while you still can. 22 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent set of headphones Bought the AKG K451 headphones as a cheap alternative to my Bose QC15's (the other half tends to nick the Bose when we're travelling together) and I didn't want a mega expensive second pair. Very happy with them, the audio seems balanced and well spaced, giving me the impression of a much more expensive set of headphones. That being said, I'm not an audio expert, so I'll let someone more accustomed to testing these things give a more accurate description. The AKGs fold up well and have a handy case for storage, along with 2 leads (1 with mic and one without). They are also very comfortable, even on my head which is quite large (I extend them to near maximum to fit). Overall I'm very happy and I can see me using these a lot! 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of plus features The sound quality and comfort of use is excellent with the added feature of folding into the supplied case make these a must as I travel a great deal. 09 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Sound Been looking at these headphones for awhile now. Upon opening the box it was great to see a carry case supplied and spare lead. Inserting the cable into the headset was fairly ok but looking at the headphones they seem so small but the sound out of them is amazing hence the What Hifi award 2012. They fold up really well and great for carrying around tho not something you can put in your pocket but a bag yes. Overall these are really comfortable to wear and have great sound well worth a purchase. 05 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sound that gets better with listening A great little pair of headphones, nicely packaged and presented, with a sturdy carry case. Having had these for 3 months, I have found the sound quality to be superb, especially for the price of the headphones. They fit snugly on the ears, but not so much so that they cause discomfort with extended listening. The bass is full and clear, but not overbearing. It is also nice to be able to rotate the ear cup to listen to a track without putting the headphones fully on. They work will with iPhone and iPod and are plenty loud enough. They are not great at isolating background noise. 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Sound Stage Brought to relpace worn out in-ear buds for my Samsung s3 and Sony tablet and improve listening quality A high sensitivity means that in a quiet space I only need to set volume at level one and all is clear especially with speech, ramp it up a notch or two and the sound stage opens wide emersing you in the music, or speech based radio/podcasts. The tonal quality is clear and crisp allowing you to pick up the sublte notes and background noises right across the spectrum making you feel part of the experience. A comfortable pair of ears that wont fall off, easy to fall asleep with on the late night listening. A spare detachable lead what more could you ask. 27 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AKG 541? The AKG K451's are super value and are great headphones. I listen to classical music and they cover all the registers from high treble to low bass. They are very comfortable to wear for long periods and the extra extension lead is useful when listening to TV. 25 March 2015
