AKG K 490 NC: Lightweight Active Noise Cancelling Headphone

Up until now, PeachBudz has carried the high value Able Planet noise cancelling headphones.  They provide exceptional value and sound.

While we do not carry Bose, we have admired their noise cancelling feature, but in terms of sound Bose retains its informal slogan of “no highs, no lows, must be Bose.”  Since Bose retains its commitment to only distributing through channels in which their muted sound signature cannot be compared to other headphones, we have been searching high and low for a headphone that combines terrific sound and a state of the art noise cancelling feature – enter German engineering and AKG.

Recently received at PeachBudz is the ultra lightweight, uber sounding, AKG 490 NC that features a state of the art noise cancelling circuitry:
