AKG N60 has a solid 30 hours of battery life which means you can use it for a flight from Houston to Dubai and back. This is real and it has proved. The battery life and performance is out of question. If the battery runs out; you can listen to your music in passive mode without the headphone being powered. There is also a USB cable included in the box that plugs directly into the 3.5mm port on the left ear cup to charge the headphone when it runs out of battery.
Since the headphone is wired, so it simply connects to your devices through the included 3.5 mm detachable cable with universal mic/remote.

What will surprise you in this headphone is the sound quality. It offers clean, well-balanced sound with smooth treble, soft mid-range and a very tight bass than most of other headphones of its category and range in the marketplace. Just plug the N60s into your mobile phone, MP3 player tablet to watch a movie or video, and you’ll find out it is giving you that added sense of immersion.
The noise cancellation feature doubles the excitement and quality of the headphone and it actually works great. It is mostly common with some headphones that you can lose a little bit of sound quality by activating the noise cancellation, while it is much different with the N60.
Overall, this headphone’s sound is full, always detailed and composed, and better-balanced than most of the other on-ear headphones and there is nothing to upset in terms of sound quality.
AKG N60 got everything you could want from a set of headphones. Sound and performance is just amazing and the noise-cancelling feature is very impressive too. The headphone enjoys a beautiful compact design and is comfortable for use on longer hours and journeys. We admit that AKG N60 could be a bit expensive purchase for most buyers, but when compared to its active competitors in the market, the cost is still fair and affordable.
If you are looking for a wireless pair of headphone with the same great sound quality and if the noise cancellation feature is your high priority; then we think the Bose QC 35 would be the best option for you by spending some more amount of money.
Overall, AKG N60 headphones sound simply amazing with the active noise cancellation feature. We highly recommend it if you you are trying to buy a wired pairs of headphone with impressive sound quality, compact and stylish design with ANC feature.
