AKG K 430 Foldable Mini Headphone - Silver Reviews


Spectacular, when bought cheap


Pros: Detail, Highs, Price, Case

Cons: Has trouble when music get's crowded

  I didn't need these headphones. Not at all. But they were cheap, real cheap. They set me back €16,99. And that's cheap. The form factor reminds of the AKG K450. The build is identical. The shells are different and these come in a bright shiny silver. Apart from that the headband cushion is missing on the K420 and the cable is not detachable. You do get an inline volume control however. Also, it comes with a semi-rigid case. So, it's a complete package.   Because it's so similar to the 450 the fit is the same. The headband is missing, but you won't really notice that. I only noticed it when I hung the phones for storage. So is it all good? Well, no. It's a cheaper...

Not bad headphones considering the price.


Pros: Very good price, good comfort, and good sound in general

Cons: Bad build quality, too much trebles and thin cable

Considering the price for a pair of AKG headphones, they're not bad, very comfortable and good sound quality, except the really too trebles in comparison to the bass, and the cable too much thin.

Good Headphones


Pros: Nice Sound,Portable,Comes with nice case

Cons: Short cable. Can be uncomfortable if not on properly

I picked these up from eBay for about £27 they were £40 on amazon so i saved £13 pound. Nice one.   These headphones sounded Good straight from the box but im no audiophile so im easily pleased.   They come with volume control but it does not ajust ipod volume which i think is a bit of a pain.   The bass on these are ok but i dont like bass overwelliming so thats fine   the highs and mids and lows are all good well to me they are.   I got them in white and they look nice.   Verdict: These are Good headphones for the budget but if the cable was a bit longer and the cans were comfyier it would of been 5 stars.  



Pros: Highs, portability and volume control!

Cons: Comfort, Lows and Mids.

Bass: The bass on the K430 is there. Nice "uuds" and "thuds" at times but somewhat light.     Highs: The highs on these are just. . .amazing! They are clear and can go somewhat high with the volume before it pierces the ear. Mids: The mids on these are pushed out a fair bit, which makes the highs and lows at time sound very bad. It is detailed in a way, but a little bit grainy? Lows: Awful (compared to MS1i's). They are so muddy and crap. You can hear the lows, but it's so...so...muddy! If you compare the lows to apple earphones than they are great! Comfort: 2 out of 5 stars. Sorry for being mean, but they are not comfortable! After 30 minutes - 1 hour,...
