"They tick all the boxes a pair of headphones designed for portables should. Not only do they look good, they’re excellent sonically, too. Their lightweight build is comfortable, while a snug fit around your ears and head ensures they stay put. Musically, simply exceptional. You won’t want to take these off. Every bit the successful update to our previous Award winners, the K450." 5 Stars, What Hifi Magazine, October 2012
Evolving from AKG's hands-down award winning K450 headphones from 2011, AKG have managed to improve upon and somehow surpass the successes of their predecessors, producing the stunning K451. With a crisp, clear sound that's great on vocals and bass alike, the 451 deliver impressive detail and plenty of energy.
The AKG K-451 closed back headphones can connect to any MP3 player for high quality, stylish portable listening. The in-line remote and microphone is compatible with iPod nano (4th generation and later), iPod classic (120GB/160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation and later), iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPad 2. With lightweight, comfortable design, soft, adjustable ear-pads and unique twist and fold design the K451 are easy to store and carry when not in use (in the hard carry case supplied).
As closed back headphones, the K451 effectively reduces the ambient noise from around you that can affect your listening pleasure, while also stopping your music from leaking out and disturbing those nearby - so you can now enjoy every nuance of your music whether listening quietly or really cranking the volume up.
For well-designed headphones with excellent sound quality, you've got to consider the AKG K451.
