"A winning combination of great sound and noise isolation make these AKGs ideal travel companions."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2015

Active noise cancellation for total involvement
Combined with the super-soft ear pads, the active noise cancellation blocks pretty much all outside noise. If you travel by 'plane, train or coach, noise cancellation headphones make all the difference. Quiet sections of music are now audible and the whole travel experience becomes more restful than ever before.

Quality AKG sound
With more of the music's detail to the fore, you don't have to turn the volume as loud. Yet, when you do want to crank up the volume, the N60NC's are more than ready. Au ultra-wide frequency response and high sensitivity means these AKG headphones can easily be driven to high levels by a modest phone or portable player. They also have a strong, powerful bass response that you'd expect from AKG.

Great travel companions
Much thought has gone in to making the AKG N60 NC's the ideal headphones for music on the move. The N60 NCs can be re-charged from any USB port - ideal if you travel with a laptop. Once charged, the headphones are good for up to 30 hours - enough for the longest of journeys or a weekly commute. They'll also still work in passive mode, even when there's no charge left, meaning you need never be without music. With a solid construction and a unique 3D-Axis folding mechanism, the N60's have been designed for a tough life on the move. A carry pouch protects them when packed away.

Hear the music, wherever you are, with the AKG N60NC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love them! I had AKG K451 headphones, very comfortable and very good sound but without noise cancelling. Having read excellent reviews on the N60NC, I decided to purchase a set, from Richer Sounds of course (always best price and best service, even on the Internet, so why waste my time elsewhere?). I am extremely pleased with the N60NC. I commute daily into London by train, so I wear them over 2 hours a day. They are very comfortable, sound is excellent as always with AKG, and noise cancelling is very effective. A great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not wireless Got these for my 40th yesterday. My girlfriend thought they were wireless based on main photo and a WhatHifi review for the wireless ones that linked here. An initial test shows they fit and sound well but unfortunately the wire will be an issue for my purpose. As the wireless and wired ones look so similar it would help if this was highlighted on the wired product page for future customers. WhatHifi have been advised of the faulty link.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time buyer The noise reduction was very effective on a plane journey and the sound quality was also very good. I listen to classical music so both elements were tested. Four stars because I haven't tried anything else under the same conditions yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones. I went into the Exeter store to look for some over / on ear headphones for studying as my last pair (AKG Y50BT) had broken for the second time (purchased from Argos and received a refund for this). I know what sound signature I like in a headphone and appreciate Richer Sounds ability to test them out before you buy. After listening to several pairs including the over ears Sennheiser offerings I kept coming back to the N60's. I was a massive fan of the AKG Y50's sound signature and these are the same fun sounding signature albeit more refined sound. Not reference sound but a fun and slightly bass heavy signature that never fails to get your head bobbing. When compared to the Momentum over ears these sound fuller and more well rounded. The noise cancelling is also very good, it doesn't block out all noise but around 75% of it. If you are in the market to find a pair of small, portable and great sounding noise cancelling headphones I would highly recommend these offerings from AKG.... Now I just hope they last longer than their cheaper brethren.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noise cancelling they certainly are. I bought these for when I am on planes. This year I have flown a lot. As yet I am yet to try them out on a flight. I have however tried them whenever I could. In the office they are excellent complete silence from outside distractions. I used them while cutting the lawn with a ride on mower I could not hear a thing only the music in my ears. So pleased with them. The build quality is great as well packaging is of a high standard and the storage pouch is great and not too bulky. I have a big head and they fit comfortably and firmly on the ear. Simply a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound and effective noise cancelling I bought these headphones originally late last year. Sound and noise cancelling both great. There was a was a minor fault with the first pair: staff were very helpful, replaced them with no fuss. Now they are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good choice for travellers. Bought these a few weeks ago, for travel. Mainly used with an iPad 2017, but have tested with a desktop, a laptop and 2 android phones. My music tracks are mostly 16-bit 44kHz, except for those on the computers (Windows 10), where I have a lot of 24-bit 96kHz (or higher) samples and use a Meridian DAC for output. My software player of choice is foobar2000, which works well across all platforms. Sound quality: This is very good for a pair of travel 'phones. My other phones are both over-ear (AKG Q701 and Sennheiser HD650) and both essentially reference quality. The N60NCs do not have the same "air" and neutrality as those, but the soundstaging is closer and well achieved. The bass is good, if not as taut as I like, and there is only a slight colouration elsewhere, (requiring A/B testing to validate!), with some fall-off at the very top end. When properly fitted to the ear, these are very persuasive and can be used for some hours without fatigue. Noise cancelling: About -20dB, which is plenty for me. It does mean that you do not get total isolation, but I prefer that as sudden local ambient noises usually have some significance! It could be a problem if you were stuck close to a crying baby, but that's life. I wore them on a couple of 3 hour plane trips and the time passed very fast, with only a slight background from the flight. Announcements came through quite clearly, though - which I think is good. Interestingly, the sound quality with NC on (in a quiet environment), to my ears, is every bit as good as when it's off, which I wasn't expecting. Practicality: Excellent. They fit into a smallish pouch, have a high level of comfort, hold their charge well and have a bright green LED, so you remember to switch them off after use! The cable is a sensible length and has an on/off button, which is handy if, like me, you want to follow along with a score on the iPad. Switching apps to start and stop would otherwise be rather clumsy. The recharge lead is perhaps rather short, but it's not really a problem - probably designed for an on-board USB connection, which I didn't have as I wasn't flying long distance or Business Class! Overall: Not cheap, but good value for travellers who like a high standard of audio.
