I didn’t know AKG too had Kleer technology headphones. Sennheiser used them in their RS160 and above previous-generation wireless but they switched apparently to their own technology with the newer RS**5 models. This being an on-ear is a more mobile setup, with the transmitter looking more like a smartphone power-bank than a 50s scifi ground control device 🙂

Refurbished AKG K495 ANC On-Ears for $70 w/free 2nd-day Air

Monday is here which means another round of weekly deals at the official Harman/JBL stores. The sales including the recertified AKG K-495 ANC On-Ears going for $70 with free 2nd-day air and 1-year warranty.

Many of the six customer reviews there complain of bad construction and breakage, so keep that in mind, especially if you are planning to use them in adventurous situations or have a bigger head (the full extension puts more pressure on a fragile headphone). I’ve had a different model of their on-ears and it just broke off at the extension area without any rough handling. Because of my not so tiny head, I had to wear it fully extended. So if you hate returns/exchanges, this is a higher risk item.
