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.

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.
