Very good for the price

Submitted by Andres - 9/24/2019

The eq is not great (limited app), and the sound is almost there and that fraction of lack of granularity is quite frustrating. The Bluetooth connectivity is underpar. Advertising recomendation: do not use a model that obiuosly does not play guitar, a carp guitar and amp... does not help the product positioning.

Bluetooth connection is very bad

Submitted by etiennecantin - 8/26/2019

Had to exchange 2 of these headphones before getting reimbursed for the third one after they all failed to work properly using the wireless features. The sound is really good, the noise cancelling saved me a few headaches but only for more or less 2 weeks before they'd stop working because of a failed bluetooth connection or locked connection. It wasn't outputting any sound anymore, plugged or wireless...Bad design, bad customer service from samsung, good customer service from the source.

Left ear speaker quit working

Submitted by cshep59 - 8/12/2019

I got these in the mail on 05/18/19 and the Left Ear Speaker quit working on 08/07/19 so im giving these a 1 star , I used these to wirelessly connect to my tv because the apt. I live in has thin walls and I like the tv loud. They have good surround sound for movies but was not impressed when listening to music. I also thought the very short charging cord was tough to plug in and out the headphones, I keep getting the run around when trying to return this item ,samsung keeps sending me to HarmanAKG and they keep sending me to samsung so im very dissapointed to say the least especially for the price.

Great quality and very comfortable headphones

Submitted by Angel1M1 - 4/18/2019

I have a many headphones and these are an awesome addition, well made, the sound is great and feel very comfortable. They arrived well packaged and with a great presentation. Once outside the box, they look elegant and fancy especially because the the chrome accent on them. The controls are divided on both sides of your ears making it easy to use. The connection between the headset and the phone was simple and fast, once connected the AKG app is suggested to use for best results, and with the app you can configure the EQ for superb sound. You can also select preselected EQ or make your own for your desired sounds. They are loud but they do not need to be loud since, when you put them on you will notice that the sound itself is blocked away. The noise cancelling is amazing, once you push the button to cancel the noise, you will hear what you are meant to. if you want to hear someone talking in front of you, you do not have to take the headphones off, all you have to do is press the button and you will only hear the person in front of you, or if you want to hear everything while listening to your tunes, you can do that as well. These headphones are for those of us that enjoy the music and all the sounds included in the songs, maybe relax listening to an audio book. The noise cancelling comes in handy at all times when you just want to enjoy whatever is playing on your headset. I have used them while watching TV so I do not bother anyone around and keeping the superb sound in my ears. I've used them while mixing music. I have also used them while running and at the gym. I think once you try them you will know what you've been missing.

Well Worth It

Submitted by T_Murf - 12/13/2018

I've had these a few weeks now, nothing but positive. The battery last longer than my other wireless headphones, about 22 hours. The noise cancelling is on par with others, and the ambient noise pass through is real nice. Being able to set up new EQs through the app is a real game changer and I like being able to set up things how I want to hear them. Overall, well worth the price and I have no complaints.

Top of the Line Noise-Cancelling Headphones!

Submitted by Insider1819 - 12/11/2018

Build Quality: Sturdy but mostly plastic. Unlike some competitors who have metal hinges, this headphone has plastic hinges making it susceptible to breaking. Ability to fold the headphones for convenient storage is a plus as some high end bluetooth headphones don't have this feature. Headband has a good range of adjustment even for bigger heads. There are even numbers added on the headband to allow for consistent sizing during each use. App: Great app! Better than or equal to competitors. Has a very customizable equalizer. Simple to use. Configurability of Ambient Aware headphone button. Auto-off configurability. Has bad reviews on the Google Play Store but it is no where as bad as the reviews indicate especially if you have a recent Samsung Galaxy S Series phone. There is a slight static noise that very occasionally pops into the headphones while playing music or simply using the headphones to cancel noise. The noise is very brief and may have to do with particular Bluetooth settings or your particular type of phone. Sound: Phenomenal. Very effective noise cancellation! Deep base. Crystal clear highs. Good separation of mids. You can hear individual instruments in a song. Great for listening to classical, hip hop, pop, and many other genres of music. Appearance: Look very high end but there is no use of high end materials such as leathers or other unique materials. Would be nice especially at this price point. Accessories: Nice sturdy case which is made of durable easy to clean material. Airplane adapter is nice but most airplanes no longer require them. Cable has a single button but for the price point would have been great to have a 3 button cable for use when the headphones are off and passive. When they are on, you can control volume, pause/play, turn on ambient aware with buttons comfortably placed on the earcups. Overall: They are great sounding headphones for all genres of music. Very comfortable for all head shapes and prolonged use. Nice inclusion of accessories although a 3 button cable would have been better. They look premium but would have been nice to include some premium materials especially at the $350 price point. Durability is slightly below par with other headphones since they are mostly made of plastic including hinges of the foldable earcups. Simple-to-use app is wonderful especially with the very customizable equalizer where you can create and name your own sound signatures. Great pair of headphones I would recommend to anyone!

The most comfortable premiere headphones around

Submitted by PartyART1E18 - 12/11/2018

The AKG N700 Wireless headphone offer a variety of perks. The sounds is superior and as high end as other top of the line companies. In addition the headphones bring 2 different types of modes, 1 being the ambient mode which allows you to hear all around you while you have the headphones on. 2 is, of course, the noise canceling feature and these headphones do a great job of blocking out unwanted racquet. The ergonomic design not only makes them easy to put away but makes them incredibly comfortable to wear. The Padding on the earpieces are very soft like a memory foam & the adjustable headband makes them very an easy fit for everyone. I have even found myself using them in place of my gaming headphones because of the quality and here is a great tip. if you plug in the aux cord and hook them up you can even use them without powering them on. Overall, you have a lot of choices when you are looking around this holiday season and if you are looking to spoil yourself or someone special the AKG N700 Nc are a winner wiiner chicken dinner!

AKGs worth of traveling with

Submitted by SasuM1 - 12/11/2018

I'm a business traveller, often taking flights from the USA- ASIA. Although I haven't had the opportunity to use these on a Long haul just yet, I have used them for coast to coast trips domestically. The pair sit comfortably over the ears, albeit a bit on the rigid cagey side. They pair very easily, as any technology with bluetooth should in 2018. It took me several times using them to sort of "break them in" but as soon as they were set to my liking the padding becomes very comfortable. The rigid bar of the headphone means that less hair will get tangled in the headphone as it's cagey. The foam on the ear pads and top head band are soft and dense, leading to a comfortable fit. On my shorter flights I had no issues with the comfort, but when I take a 10+ hr flight that will be the true test for these- as with air pressure and the conditions of an airplane your ears can get sore. The best part about these is the sound. Rich vocals come through with a pretty well rounded base. I used these across several different genres. Hard rock while I was in the gym with them, some country and pop and tech while I was in the process of travel. They come through with great sound every time, across several genres of music. The case is beautiful and has all the adapters needed for all types of travel. Some other brands do not contain the additional necessary adapters and force you to buy them separately. As for durability- I've had these for a month + now. Durability seems perfectly fine. They are as intact as the day I received them. Battery life is very good too. I keep forgetting when the last time I charged them was, generally a good sign of a good battery life. It should be around 15-20 hr maybe. The biggest con about these- it uses a micro usb instead of USB-C, which should be the standard for all charge devices in this day and age. Micro USB is outdated leading to a slower charge. That needs to be improved, but if that doesn't bother you these are an exceptional pair of headphones with great sound.

Great and and Comfort

Submitted by L0PEZ22 - 12/11/2018

My first impression on these headphones were the sheer quality of the materials. They look very premium. They felt great on my head, after 3+ hours of listening it still felt like I didn't have anything on my ears. That gets me into battery life, they are phenomenal! I've used them all day at work for a few days straight before having to charge up. They charge pretty quick so you won't be with out them for long. The noise cancelling feature is the best part. You can legitimately cut out the world with a press of a button. To go along with that it has a feature they call ambient aware which was perfect I when i had to let the world in to hear what was going on around me. I took them on a trip and i feel right asleep because I couldn't hear the plane excess noise. It comes with the adapter needed on some planes and the case them come in is pretty protective. Overall i'm very pleased with them I felt like they were priced right for what your're getting. A very high end quality sounding headphone with noise cancellation.

A battery that can finally keep up!

Submitted by Kshoe0121 - 12/7/2018

I bought these after looking for a wireless pair of headphones that were (1) comfortable to wear all day, (2) a battery I didnt need to charge often, and (3) great sound quality with noise cancellation. These headphones are by far the most comfortable headphones I have ever used. The design allows them to almost go unnoticeable, not creating any pressure points. The battery easily last two to three days of usage ( approx. 8 hours per day) without having to charge them. The sound quality is exactly what you would expect from a $350 pair of headphone. The only disappointment is the active noise cancellation (ANC). Dont get me wrong the ANC works and surely does help while at the airport or wherever, just dont expect anything mind blowing. I would recommend these headphones for anyone on the go a lot and frequent travelers. Overall: 9 out of 10 I am reviewing this product as a member of the Insiders program.

Awsome Headphones

Submitted by dawn221 - 12/7/2018

What can I say we are fighting over who gets to use this headphones, everyone loves them. They are comfortable they have great sound and the noise cancellation is so awesome you don't hear any outside noise. They are super easy to use and control, the Bluetooth connected with no problems. It comes with a nice case to protect them while traveling with them. Anyone who loves music must have a pair. They are wireless and that is another great feature.

Sound Quality A+, terrible calling, worse support

Submitted by IUsedToLikeAKG - 12/5/2018

Bought the product under one month ago. Sound quality for music is amazing. The issue comes in it's ability to take and receive calls and have people hear you. I cannot tell you how many people I've upset in the last few weeks, all of whom have the exact same comment "Hey, theres a REALLY BAD ECHO on your line, I hear myself and every word loudly!" . This is across multiple devices I have connected to the headphones (iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro) via BT. Support was absolutely USELESS. Samsung support wasted 30 minutes of my life, told me they'd replace it, then told me that I had to go to AKG direct and provided a phone number. 888-452-4254. Upon calling this number, the support rep told me that there are absolutely no troubleshooting steps, and that it will need to be replaced, and to contact Samsung to get it replaced...... I told her I have a transcript from Samsung pointing me back to her. AKG said that the product is on backorder, and for me to pick a different product off their website...I don't want a different high end wireless headphone, since you don't sell any others....this was the only proposed solution, then they literally hung up on me. THEY HUNG UP ON ME.

Expected more

Submitted by Roho81 - 11/29/2018

I have owned AKG on ear headphones for years and love them. I jumped at the chance for the n700nc. They were well packed. I was missing the flight adapter. The case is very nice much better then the bag that comes with the n60nc I have. They are made mostly of plastic snd feel so. Sound quality is ok at best. They seem very quiet to me and when turned up all the way there is a lot of static. I did update the firmware which improved the sound quality slightly. My next issue is when connect to my note 9 and navigating through different screens the headphones emit a crackling sound which is annoying. I have 2 other pair of akg that do not have this issue. I'm on the fence about returning these. The noise canceling does work very well and makes long drives pleasant. Thank you. #insiders for the chance at reviewing these!

Top wireless headphones

Submitted by rusyfikator2 - 11/26/2018

I had a chance to test them for almost a month now, thanks to The Insiders! AKG N700NC fit perfectly and have adjustable band, they fold to take less space and come with a nice sturdy case. Even though they are wireless, a standard 3.5mm cable is also included. The set also includes old plane adapter and an USB cable for charging. They do not come with an outlet charger, meaning you have to use your own. Headsets paired with my Galaxy S8 phone without any issues and the process is seamless since once you first start them they are already in the pairing mode. There is an additional AKG app that you can use to change few settings or use an equalizer. One of the reasons I bought them was the shape and noise canceling feature. Headsets reduce outside noises significantly, I had a chance to use them on a 9h flight to Europe – they did the job perfectly. Battery lasted for the whole trip and I used them for 80% of the flight. You can even use them without listening to music, just as a noise canceling headsets. Headsets have a built in microphone which allows to make receive and make calls just like a typical Bluetooth headset, but what surprised me is a dedicated button to dial down noise canceling and listen to surroundings that are amplified thanks to the microphone. The only down side of this is that it takes a second or two to work. Sound quality is great and bass is pretty deep. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Noise cancelling is crazy!

Submitted by Bluetooth blue jay - 11/25/2018

I am reviewing the AKG N700NC Wireless as an Insider. When I initially tried these headphones I must say, I was very impressed. The sound was so clear and rich. You can really hear all the notes in whatever type of music you're listening to. The noise cancellation was outta this world and just added to your immersion. The build quality is very good. Feel very durable without feeling extra bulky. They could probably be a little sleeker in design. But they were not bad to look at at all. I had been using the AKG N60NC. And even though I really liked those on ear headphones and they have been my favorite headphones since i got them, I have not touched them once since opening the N700NCs. I let my wife check them out and she was blown away. Overall, these things are great. Nice rich sound, total immersion, comfortable, the noise cancellation is amazing and really quality headphones. The one thing I would change is maybe the pricetag. They are not bad for the price, but would be a steal and totally knock everything else out the park if they were $50 less. But if you have the money to spend, want quality and style, you get that with these. A must have especially if you travel a lot. Included in the box you get a hard carrying case, a micro USB charging cable, a 3.5mm to 2.5mm detachable cable with universal button remote control and a flight adapter. Battery life has also been impressive. I've listened to music, watch YouTube for a couple hours at a time since I got them, totaling about 15 or so hours so far, and I have not charged these things yet. Standby time is off the charts as well. Controls are fairly intuitive. And I picked up the controls and functionality pretty quickly. Do I recommend these headphones? Simple answer, YES! These are great. If you fly a lot, take the subway to work or just go for long walks where there is a lot of background noise like I do, then these are highly recommended. Check em out.

Comfort, Great sound quality!

Submitted by MisterJimmyMo - 11/23/2018

Note that I am reviewing this product as part of Insider Program. I have been using AKG N700NC headphone for two weeks, and so far I love it. My favorite feature of this headphone is its sound quality; it matches my other high quality wired headphone (Non-NC). Maybe it's expected for the headphones at this price point. I like the fact that it produces detail, dynamics, and clarity out from the tracks from my Oscar Peterson albums (24bit-44.1kHz encoded). Bass is full and deep, but to me it's bit exaggerated; I had to do some fine tune for my liking. Other things I like about N700NC are: Great battery life, Good looking design, and comfort on my ears. I had two domestic flights with it, and had no issue wearing them for whole flight. I don't believe it's the most comfortable one I ever tried, but very close. Noise cancelling also works as expected. I hear minimal noise during the flights. Only glitch I experienced was light squeaky sound in some rare situations. I think it is related to noise cancelling. I found that it happens when I opened personal air vent in the airplane; especially when the wind directly hit the headphones. It wasn't really annoying experience, but just to point it out. Overall, IAKG N700NC is great option for someone wants headphones with great sound quality. Note:

Appearance: Look very high end but there is no use of high end materials such as leathers or other unique materials. Would be nice especially at this price point. Accessories: Nice sturdy case which is made of durable easy to clean material. Airplane adapter is nice but most airplanes no longer require them. Cable has a single button but for the price point would have been great to have a 3 button cable for use when the headphones are off and passive. When they are on, you can control volume, pause/play, turn on ambient aware with buttons comfortably placed on the earcups. Overall: They are great sounding headphones for all genres of music. Very comfortable for all head shapes and prolonged use. Nice inclusion of accessories although a 3 button cable would have been better. They look premium but would have been nice to include some premium materials especially at the $350 price point. Durability is slightly below par with other headphones since they are mostly made of plastic including hinges of the foldable earcups. Simple-to-use app is wonderful especially with the very customizable equalizer where you can create and name your own sound signatures. Great pair of headphones I would recommend to anyone!

Best of Best

Submitted by sugarland2819 - 11/21/2018

I have used the AKG 700NC now for several weeks and this is an excellent headset. I received this headset as part of an Insiders campaign and have used it with both the Note 9 and the Tab S4. Setup was a snap. You simply turn on the device and pair it to your device. If you have a device (like the Tab S4) that will allow shared Bluetooth, you will love this device as it worked perfectly. I was able to listen to music and a movie and control my own volume while the other person was able to control theirs. The sound…where do I even start. The sound on this device is absolutely amazing and would say this is THE BEST headset I have ever used. The sound was crisp and had plenty of bass. I listened to several types of music and felt that the headset sounded unbelievable. For movies, I felt like I was in the movie theater. The noise canceling feature worked flawlessly. I used it on several plane rides and it was very effective in removing all of the unwanted noises (plane engine, crying babies, etc.). In regards to comfort, the cushions on the headset fit completely over your ear and provide a soft seal that fits very comfortably and can be worn for hours with zero ear fatigue. Battery life is also fantastic. The specifications state 23 hours on Bluetooth and I believe it. I used it on several flights and never had to recharge the unit. The case that was provided is a hard case that allows small yet protective storage. The only negative I have to give the AKG 700NC would be the buttons. I feel like they are a little small and not very intuitive. I found myself having to take off the headset several times to make sure I was pressing the correct button. This was a very small annoyance as I got used to the placement but the buttons could be a little bigger. Summary: Overall, I really like the AKG 700NC and I would highly recommend them and would give them 4.5 stars. The fit, sound, comfort and battery life are incredible. The only recommendation would be to make the buttons on the unit a little bigger. **I am reviewing this headset as part of an Insiders Campaign.

Shockingly quiet!

Submitted by mg3point2 - 11/21/2018

You don't know how loud your work environment is until you turn these on. It never gets old, with a flip of the switch, the office chatter and HVAC go silent, pure unbridled concentration. Then you pump in some tunes and you are swept away. The sound is so clear with crisp highs and balanced lows. During a single day I can listen to a full gamut of music from Rap to Rock and Country to Jazz, they all sound amazing. I would have to say that live recordings sound best because it's as if you are truly there. I use them also for conference calls and they work wonders to hear the conversation while still being amongst the office noise. I will admit that the built-in microphone did sometimes have an issue creating an echo but when plugging in and using the in-line microphone the echo was solved. Also included is a very nice traveling case that I use daily. These things are so great, there is no way they are only getting used at home. I've also used them outside while doing yard work. They do a great job of cutting out the lawn mower or leaf blower. It makes yard work soo much more enjoyable. And with such a long battery life you are able to use them all day in the office and still have battery to spare when you get home. Looking at design, I cannot say enough how sleek these look and the comfort is phenomenal. The fully flexing headband and rotating cups fit snug against your head while not applying too much pressure to be a nuisance. I've had soo many people stop me to ask about them, just based on the looks, to have them try them out their minds are blown. They also include some very great features. By connecting to the app on your phone you can tweak the audio settings to be personalized to you so that you get the perfect sound. Connecting is very easy with the only drawback being you cannot be connected to multiple devices at once. You can also customize how some of the buttons work on the headphones, it really is a great personal touch. I never knew I needed these, but I quickly find myself thinking, how did I ever function without them. I was provided these at a discount for review as part of The Insiders, but I think I also now know of a Christmas present for my wife (another pair, these ones are mine ;) ) and I'll gladly pay full price.

AKG N700NC Wireless Sleek, Stylish, Fantastic No

Submitted by WxWolf - 11/20/2018

Opening up the N700NC you can tell these are premium headphones, and are perfect for travel! Most of my use of my AKG N700NC headphones came while I was flying. I often travel for work and have been trying to find the perfect match of style, sound, and noise cancellation. The N700NC hit all those marks, the set has a nice and bright sound, even when using the noise cancellation you do not loose very much range on in your music or podcasts. The noise cancellation was the best I have heard at damping out airplane noise, while also still giving you a hint of the crew making an announcement you may not want to miss. When you do want to listen to the real world, it is very convenient, you are just a button press away from turning on the external mics to let in outside sounds for a quick conversation, or to listen about what is going on. The ear pads were extremely comfortable, I had no issues keeping them on for an entire 3 hour flight, and my ears did not feel too hot! One the style side of things, the N700NCs look nice, are sleek and do not stick out too far from your head, and are pleasing in both materials and finish. Defiantly the nicest looking headphones I have owned. They fold up very nicely into a small hard case and tuck away for travel. Beyond travel I used these in the yard, around the house, and on a few runs, and ran into no issues keeping them on in any of those situations. Phone calls came in clear and those I was talking too were unable to tell that I was on a pair of headphones. The minor gripe I have with this set is that the power buttons and multi use button setup on the left side is a little close together an it takes some getting used to the layout to hit the needed button each time. Beyond the N700NC headphones are fantastic and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone, especially frequent flyers! I am writing this review as part of the Samsung Insiders program.

Its okay

Submitted by Alexg6666 - 11/20/2018

So AKG did made the headphones look and feel good. Once you wear, you will definitely feel light on your head as it's really right weight. It fits perfectly on the ears. It's way convenient having both wireless as well wired. But I won't suggest investing that much for this headset. The sound quality is okay but not uptoke the mark. The volume is not loud enough at all. I initially thought it's because of OS I am using. But I tried on 2 different OS but it doesn't make the sound any different. It's really low for such AKG headsets. I feel that a regular wired headset has louder volume as compared this specific one. I think this AKG headset needed much more work done. I would definitely recommend this headset for some one who doesn't care about the volume on your headset. Otherwise someone who really cares about the bass and the volume shouldn't touch it . Giving a review for the insiders.

New Go-To Headphones

Submitted by GoldenAxe007 - 11/19/2018

After spending a few weeks with the AKG N700NC wireless headphones, I can say I am pleased with almost everything it has to offer. Here is my quick review of the product (note: I've wrote this review as part of the Insiders program). The main reason of getting headphones is sound quality and these sound great. Both treble and bass sound really good and high/low tones are easily heard with all types of music. The headphones can also get very loud in wired and wireless modes (which has a 20 hour battery life that I almost always hit). The noise cancelling does a great job of minimizing most of the outside noise. Of course not everything will be removed but it is enough to be able to enjoy whatever you are listening to. I've been using it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and it took seconds to pair up and start using them. There is an AKG headphone app that you can download to give you some additional features, which I highly recommend. One extra feature if determining what you want to use the side button for – you can switch between Ambient Aware mode or Talkthru mode. The additional buttons on the side allow you to activate Siri or Google Assistant and you can even control your music/movie with it (start/stop/pause/skip). I also used it for a few work conference calls and again, I had no issues hearing anything and no one had any trouble hearing my voice. Everything was clear and I was able to use them for my whole call. Speaking of that, these are fairly comfortable no matter what position I was using them in – standing up, sitting down or even laying down on my bed. The padding on the top and on the ear cups allow for the headphones to sit comfortably on my head. There are times where my ears would start warming up a bit (the ear cups allow very little air to get in, which is what you want to less noise also gets in). But other than that, I did not experience any discomfort. Finally I just want to mention that the box actually provides a very nice carrying case that will keep the headphones safe and sound. Normally you'd have to get your own case on top of the headphone purchase so this was a very nice surprise to find. Overall, I highly recommend these headphones for anyone who wants more out of their music/movies and especially for anyone who travels, as the noise cancellation is great. I have officially replaced my older Bluetooth headphones and this will now be my go-to 24/7.

The Perfect Travel Companion

Submitted by Chris G - 11/19/2018

When you first handle the 700NCs, it becomes clear that these are an incredibly well-built pair of headphones that, at the same time, side-step any pretentious touches. A nice balance of metals and premium plastics help balance the headphones, as well as give you confidence these will be up for the challenge of regular air travel - my personal main use case. Comfort then, is key, as I want to be wearing these for 11 hour flights without discomfort. Leather and memory foam cushions achieve this goal with ease, and unlike competing headphones I didn't find my ears being squashed at all - they were able to fit inside the cups with ease. This is saying something, as my ears are larger than the average. Yeah, that's not something I'll brag about regularly - but it is a reason I don't get along with a lot of over-ear headphones. Fit may be an issue for some people. The headphones fit me PERFECTLY, but my wife couldn't work out why the noise cancelation wasn't all that impressive, until we realised that even in their most compact form, the headphones were still too large for her, which lead to the cups not being securely pressed against her head, resulting in sound leaks. So, just something to be aware of; if your head is on the small side, these may not be for you. Battery life is stellar. You're looking at 20 hours noise cancellation on full charge - with USB micro and not USB-C cable, sadly - and 36 hours if you're using the included audio cable. Control of the headphones can be done with the buttons on each ear cup. It may take a few uses before you get the hang of remembering where the controls are, but an on-off switch and volume up and down buttons are accompanied by a Google Voice button and a button that allows for ambient aware mode, which pipes in exterior noises, so you can have conversations or listen to your surroundings without having to remove the headphones. Finally, I've saved the most important thing for last- audio quality. Bass is commanding, full and deep without being overpowering - an issue I have with some mid-range headphones - highs are crisp without sounding tinny and the mids have a powerful clarity to them. AKG's N700NC have instantly become part of my travel kit. Fantastic noise cancelling with features that really make practical sense, outstanding sound quality and premium materials and design. I reviewed the AKG N700NC as part of The Insiders program.

Blown away

Submitted by Bracedog - 11/17/2018

I couldn't believe how well these cans hit right out of the box. I'd been using a different set that I thought I wouldn't replace but since I started using the N700s I haven't even touched them. The quality of the headphones are one of the best thing's that set them apart. The cushioning isn't some cheap material you can tell they considered the customer wearing these for extended periods of time. The sound blows you away it's like sitting in your own personal concert hall. Yes mreview as part of the Insiders program, but I tell you what I'd buy these headphones again without hesitation

AKG N700NC Wireless Headphones

Submitted by Achimel - 11/16/2018

I've heard of AKG and Harman Kardon for some time, but I never had the opportunity to own a product designed by them. When I was recently offered the opportunity to try out these headphones by The Insiders, I leaped at the opportunity. With the progression of bluetooth / wireless technology, I appreciate the ability to preserve the integrity of sound quality, maintain light, compact designs, and develop a great end product for audiophiles looking for affordable options. Sound quality: The sound is crisp and clear, well deserving of the reputation AKG has built for itself over the years. No extra flairs or effects, just clean sound. The noise cancelling feature works well, while also it does not detract from any of the concerns in the patient. Design / Comfort: The headphones sits fairly comfortably on my above-average large sized head. The ear padding was fine at first, but felt a bit uncomfortable after 1-2 hours and would require a bit of re-positioning. My ears felt a tad stuffy with prolonged wear, but on the other hand it would provide some warmth in the winter weather. Battery life: Solid battery life, I'm getting on average a little more than the 20 hours reported. I probably charge the headphones about once every 2-3 days. Overall, the AKG headphones have solid performance at a bit of a premium price. The quality feels great, the sound quality is incredible, and the bluetooth features are stable. The headphone itself sits comfortably on varying head sizes, including those large heads. The app can help to customize the audio system, but it would be easier to adjust these things from the headset itself than an app that is inconsistent. With all things said, I'm happy to have joined into the AKG family with my new pair of headphones!

Stress Relievers

Submitted by Daniel Wells - 11/15/2018

I am an official AKG INSIDER of the N700 headphones and they are absolutely amazing, they come of great use when I'm aggravated and need a short break from my 5 kids, as those of you with children are familiar with. They have many features one of my favorite is that they can be used wired or wireless/ Bluetooth compatible. They are extremely comfortable around the ear, extend to your fit/size. The sound quality is unbelievably seamless.

Professional sound quality for a great price!

Submitted by stevedaboss - 11/9/2018

The new AKG N700 Wireless Headphones are nothing shy of luxurious! They are noise cancelling headphones to use at home, traveling around the globe, or pretty much anywhere! The soft leather material makes it really comfortable on your ears. I love the professional sound quality from these headphones. It is as if you have a recording studio right in your ears. You hear the deep low bass, crystal clear highs, and great mid tones as well. Pairing it with bluetooth is simple and easy. Once you put them on, you are in the zone with music and become fully immersed with the sound. Apart from the active noise cancellation, there is also ambient aware technology. This is useful if you also want to hear what is going on around you. The battery life is great for a wireless headphone! It has 20 hours of playtime wireless, and 36 hours of playtime with the cord. Some great features include that it's ompact and flat folding. They are very easy to store in your bag when you're on the go. If I was to compare these to another set of headphones, I would say they compete with the Dr Dre Beats Solo 3 sound quality. The price is also very reasonable for the luxurious style and quality of the headphones. Thanks to the Insiders for giving me this great opportunity!

Pretty much perfect

Submitted by Stinger21 - 11/7/2018

When I was given the opportunity to try out the new AKG N700NC Wireless headphones as an Insider, I knew I was in for a treat. AKG is well known for their professional sound quality, and their newest noise cancelling headphones don't disappoint. I own several pair of headphones in the 200-400 dollar range, and these are now my favorite. Noise cancelling is top notch. The moment I turned these on, all ambient noise vanished, allowing my music (and only my music) to be fully heard. Speaking of music, everything I throw at these comes across excellently reproduced. Highs come through crisp, but not overly bright, and mids are full and clear. I hear things in my music that I haven't heard before in this range, and this is where these headphones really shine. Bass tones are powerful, bold, but never muddy or overly boomy. Overall sound reproduction feels very accurate and not over processed. AKG provides a companion app that allows custom tweaks to the equalizer for further fine tuning, but honestly, the sound right out of the box is just about perfect. Other things I appreciate about the N700NC Wireless headphones are the build quality, which looks and feels durable. They're very comfortable for extended listening, and their unique shape fits securely on my head. They fold up compactly for portability, and the included hard case is a nice touch. Battery life over Bluetooth is an impressive 20+ hours with active noise cancelling, and I also appreciate the included optional 3.5mm-2.5mm headphone jack cable which allows a wired connection and up to 36 hours of battery life. If you're looking for a great pair of over-ear headphones for travelling or home use, I highly recommend the AKG N700NC Wireless. They are the best I've ever used in this category.

One Kind of Headphones!

Submitted by stanmed - 11/6/2018

I was pleasantly surprised by AKG700 NC headphones. I was expecting the same quality many manufacturers are promising, however the phrase "Tuned by AKG" does really stand out in sound quality. First of all, there are a few things that a customer is looking for when trying out new headphones: comfort, sound quality and battery life. The AKG700 were pretty comfortable to wear for any prolonged project I threw at it and when I would take them off, my ears did not scream for help either. The cups are made of soft leather material and your ear simply sinks in its "bed". Before I mention sound quality, I would recommend downloading the AKG app on your phone. The app will check the latest firmware available and will offer an update. You will also have access to your own EQ settings and other functions. When you first turn the headphones on it greets you with a nice & short sound presentation. Pairing is very simple and quick too, though I wish NFC was present at this price point. I played a few high resolution files and music came alive as it was intended - beautiful highs and lows, clear treble and bass were well pronounced. I switched my music choice to a few different genres (instrumental, classical, contemporary and techno) on Google Music and the AKG700 did not disappoint. It is very important to test a variety of music samples in order to test different frequencies, texture, layers of music, bass variance, etc. I really enjoyed that crystal clear sound these headphones produced when playing instrumental piano and classical music. I was able to hear certain instruments I did not hear when I used a different brand. Like I mentioned before, music came alive! Vocals were another strength these headphones delivered quite well. It was always balanced and clear. Bass-heavy music, and treble-defining tracks in my sample playlist were winners too as the AKG700 were able to sound like no other headphones. I tested these headphones both wired and via Bluetooth and results were excellent in both modes. Noise Cancelling feature was very well implemented and Ambiance Aware tech to control how much surrounding noise you want to let it was a nice touch. I loved the way you can fold these and store them in the provided case, perfect for traveling! AKG branded accessories were a nice addition to the package as well and are always a plus for a customer. AKG has always been a leader in sound reproduction and has proved again its main priorities in the AKG700NC headphones. As a disclaimer, I am a participant of Samsung Insider program and received a discount when purchasing this product.

Sound with perfect Clarity

Submitted by jlm1 - 10/30/2018

Introduction: The AKG N700NC Wireless Headphones are a game changer in both comfort and sound. These headphones create such an experience with a light and soft feel surrounding your ears while providing amazing sound quality through the bluetooth connection. What else is also impressive is the 20 hour playback time on a single charge for these headphones to provide such beautiful acoustic sounds with powerful bass and clear sounds. Pros: Amazing Acoustic Sound Quality Bluetooth functions at its best Comfortable Fold for easy stow and storage The soft/hard case it comes with isn't too bulky Accessories Long playback time on a single charge Extra playback time with cable/not using bluetooth The look and feel Cons: Calls can be a bit uncomfortable at first The high price tag (more than some of the competition) Bottom Line: These headphones provide amazing clarity of sound, astounding bass for other genres of music and are a good option for making phone calls. The hefty price tag may place these headphones out of the range of many, but they are well worth the cost. The noise cancelling feature is great enough that you can focus on the music being played, but are not completely removed from your surroundings. This product was reviewed as an Insider! to fantastic new products before they are available to everyone!

A Battery that can finally keep up

Submitted by Kshoe21 - 10/23/2018

I bought these after looking for a wireless pair of headphones that were (1) comfortable to wear all day, (2) a battery I didnt need to charge often, and (3) great sound quality with noise cancellation. These headphones are by far the most comfortable headphones I have ever used. The design allows them to almost go unnoticeable, not creating any pressure points. The battery easily last two to three days of usage ( approx. 8 hours per day) without having to charge them. The sound quality is exactly what you would expect from a $350 pair of headphone. The only disappointment is the active noise cancellation (ANC). Dont get me wrong the ANC works and surely does help while at the airport or wherever, just dont expect anything mind blowing. I would recommend these headphones for anyone on the go a lot and frequent travelers. Overall: 9 out of 10
