AKG K420 Headphone Review

 

The AKG K402 headphone is an interesting break from the norm for me. Most of the headphones I review here at Technoodling tend to be either of the in-ear variety like the Westone 4 and Brainwavz B2, or the over-the-ear kind like the Superlux HD330 and...

Lightweight, foldable ; Balanced and pleasant to listen to

Build quality could be better ; Felt tight on my head no matter how I adjusted them. Or do I just have a big head

Price, sound (for the price), balanced sound, design

Cable may be too short for some
