AKG K545 Closed Back Over-Ear Headphones : A worthy upgrade over its brother the K551

My head diameter is 56cm and i feel it’s a bit big for my head, could be my head shape but i don’t recommend a pair if you have a pin head/small head. Otherwise a decent bit of kit. The lack of a bag is annoying as i still haven’t found something good to store them in.

Pros: neutral/flat response, soundstage, design and looks, lightweight, removable wirecons: highs are rolled off, benefits from an amppackaging & accessories: 6/10build quality: 10/10design & look: 10/10isolation: 7/10comfort: 9/10audio quality: 9. 5/10value: 8/10my final rating: 10/10review price: £230the akg k545′s also come in four different finishes:-white-black-black with turquoise-black with orangepackaging, accessories, box content, overall first impressions (look wise)packaging:the packaging that comes with the akg k545′s is discrete unlike its younger brother the k551′s which was excessively heavy packaging. It is nice to see that akg thought about resellers here and people carrying boxes from their shopping sprees in the high streets. Accessories:my impressions of the k551′s was very disappointing thus i was expecting the worst with the k545′s, however the k545′s really did deliver this time round, although it wasn’t perfect it was a vast improvement. The k545′s come with a 1/4″ adapter in the box and they also come with not one, but two detachable wires for the k545′s to use (more on the wires in the build quality section). It was nice to see akg addressing the issue of the mics not working on android and thus including an android cable alongside the iphone one gets a big thumbs up from me. With that said, i found it a little disappointing not to find a simple pouch, something i had also mentioned in my k551 review. A simple pouch, that costs less than £2 on ebay would do fine. The pouch isn’t there to protect the headphones from bumps and falls, but instead is there to prevent food, keys or even a tiny bit of water effecting the headphones. It isn’t had to include and is definitely something i was looking for in the k545′s, as it is a set of headphones that can be taken on-the-go with its rotating drivers.

I don’t do geek speak or all that tecky jive but i will say, these are awesome. I got them 3 days ago and haven’t heard the wife nag since. I’ve seen her lips move and her finger wagging but i’m wrapped in perfect sound with a smile on my face. Stick on born slippy (live version from everything everything) and turn it up full. The clarity is stunning even if the wife’s a minger.
