Our take on the AKG K 450 by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Enjoy great sound with virtually any audio system or portable music player using AKG's K 450 headphones. They connect directly to most MP3 players, but also include a full-sized 1/4" adapter for home audio receivers, as well as a 2.5mm headphone adapter for select cell phones. An innovative folding mechanism allows these 'phones to collapse down to a super-compact size for easy carrying. And the advanced driver design ensures clarity and accuracy over a wide frequency range, just like you get with AKG's traditional on-ear models.
The K 450s come with two detachable, single-sided cables, so you can pick the length that's right for you. The cushioned earpads and headband are designed for hours of comfortable listening. And an included carrying case gives you easy storage.
From the review Back to school with AKG headphones -- but which pair?
"...the K 450s definitely won in terms of portability — they're collapsible, come with a compact carrying case, and they're about 3 ounces lighter than any of the HD models..."
— Amanda, Crutchfield A/V Writer
They fit well and sound great.
