”With a good enough music source, these AKGs sound awesome.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

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 Great but get foam buds These headphones need a good source, a dac and amp, if possible, to really get the best they can deliver. With good foam buds for a better seal, these AKG N40s are brilliant. I had ultimate ears triple fi 10s, shure se535, sennheiser momentums headphones and these are my favourite. The bass is punchy but very fast so complex bass lines are delivered with precession, mid range is crisp and vocals ring through, as do guitars. The highs can be a little to harsh at times but I think it’s because they reach highs that other earphones can’t. I am thoroughly enjoying these headphones, worth every penny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So so so good for £250!! By far the best and most comfortable earbud I’ve owned. It’s been 2 years trying out earbuds/headphones. I’ve owned Shure SE535, Phonak PFE 232, Shure SE425, B&W P7 and these are just so comfortable to wear which I’m starting to value more than anything else. They sound really crisp and clear from an iPhone but I’ve just bought an Audiolab M-Dac Nano and they have transformed into the best portable rig I could have imagined. From a dac these become extremely well bodied earbuds that make all of your music sound enjoyable. I couldn’t recommend them more if I tried. Without a dac they are still amazing buds and are easy to drive and sound good with all types of music. They arnt too analytical, they just make you enjoy your music. At £250 they are a steal compared to the competition. Get them while you can

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and very comfortable I bought these from the Birmingham branch about 3 weeks ago and I am so glad I did. They are as good if not better than some headphones I have tried at a much higher price. I use these with the Astell & Kern SR15 and they are a match made in heaven.
