“Give these premium in-ears an audition just as soon as you can” What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Made for Hi-Res sound

Using a conventional bass driver paired with a balanced armature driver gives the N40 a dynamic and expansive sound. This means that the N40 earphones not only pick out every nuance of treble and mid-range detail but also dig out deeper bass than you'd believe for an in-ear design. They won't flatter a poor recording but if you want to hear every texture and subtle detail of music, you won't get better at this price - just make sure your source is up to scratch!

Three sound filters for individual tuning
If you want to tweak the sound towards more bass or treble then there's a range of screw-in filters supplied with the earphones. Use one filter to boost the bass, another to boost the treble or just stick with the neutral reference filter for the most balanced sound quality.

Rounded ear tips for comfort
Supplied with four pairs of ear tips, it's easy to get a comfortable fit with the N40s. The tips are rounded and closely follow the ear's natural anatomy, making them comfortable to wear. Two detachable, tangle-free cables are also supplied. One of these features an in-line remote, making the headphones ideal for use with a smartphone.

The perfect match for a Hi-Res portable or DAC-equipped smartphone, the AKG N40's bring your Hi-Res music to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Earphone quality taken to the next level I have been using Shure SE425 earphones for a number of years now and was blown away at their clarity and overall performance, but stepping up to the AKG N40's was something else. I have the Pioneer 100R digital music player with which I uses these earphones with, and have a Tidal Hi-Fi account; the sound is unbelievable. The N40's are not cheap but if you want CD quality music on the go then these will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive after burn in I was after a new set of earphones after recently purchasing my first DAP. I wanted something that would do justice to the hi res music library I was starting as well as the 16Bit flac files I was using from my CDs. I also preferred the idea of replaceable cables both as I don't ever use the inline Mic/control features which seem to be on so many in ears these days and from a simple repair point of view. Having said that the remote is both ios and Android compatible via a little switch. At first they sounded quite deep and bass heavy and after giving the in ears and DAP a good few hours burn in I can say these are great sounding and still getting better with lots of detail. The sound seems to be opening up and I think it's as much down to listening to a lot of electronic music.They are very comfortable and sit well in the ear and have a nice quality feel to them. I would recommend them to anyone who is using a decent level of source but think they are too expensive for mp3 on a phone.
