”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 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Straight out of the box didn’t work. No sound from right headphone. Very disappointing. Convoluted returns process. Won’t but AKG again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Out of the box they were faulty. Static sound and intermittent loss of sound from the right cable. Seems to be a faulty cable - poor for a mid-range set of buds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning - but use Tidal Absolutely blinding. They were great out of the box. They benefit from a DAC but are good without. They do not work well with low or medium res files, but work well with Tidal HiFi or Masters of course. A but lacklustre with Spotify.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get a decent music player! Took my time deciding which in ears to get, I think I made the right decision, I'll admit I did listen to a friends pair through an Astell & Kern ak70 mark 2, and that prompted me to also invest in an A&k SR15, these headphones are wasted paired with a phone, they sound very average through my iPhone x, but with the A&K it's a different story, just brilliant, and getting better as they "bed in" so to speak, personally I didn't really notice much difference with the different filters installed, younger ears might! These truly are stunning headphones, but only with the right source.
