The N60NC is a pair of On-ear headphones, which means that it still hugs the ear but is small enough to listen anytime, anywhere. The headset is finished in plastic, but made on a metal frame, so it is very solid, does not feel loose.
And of course we have 2 ports to connect to music and micro USB charging. N60NC does not have any waterproof standards, so the company does not bother to add a rubber door for this product.
N60NC is the first pair of On-ear headphones AKG equipped with active noise cancellation technology. And through practical experience, this feature works very effectively. The foam cushion of the headset hugs the listener’s ear, so the passive noise cancellation is quite good, and if I turn on the active noise cancellation, I do not hesitate to wear the headset on the street.
But the N60NC has a drawback that it can’t control the level of noise cancellation, which the new pairs of Sony headphones can do. Therefore, in places with low noise, users still have to turn on noise cancellation at the highest level, which can cause mild tinnitus if listening for a long time.
As a user and lover of AKG headphones, I am too familiar with the company’s signature sound pattern. K612 Pro, K701 or K501 all have clean, airy and light sound quality, very suitable for light and lyrical Jazz, Ballad music.
