mamboboymamboboy

Pretty sure this is the cheapest they've been yet from a certified reseller...

Ideal for use with virtually any portable music player, the K 450 can also wirelessly connect to your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone by means of an optional adapter and headset. So you can enjoy your favorite music as you may never have heard it before, as well as make and receive hands-free calls, all through the same system. And for your convenience AKG added two lengths of the single sided cable. Of course the foldable K 450 always makes a perfect travel companion, wherever you may be.

    It's now the same price on the SuperFi website for those who'd prefer to buy it directly:

    I'd recommend these or Graddo headphones, for both great sound quality and value for money.

    Indeed, cracking little headphones, ultra portable yet comfortable, with sound quality rivaling headphones three times their price.

    Great timing as just been looking for a reasonable set of headphones, these seem to get superb reviews including What HiFi 2011 headphone product of the year.

    Think you've just saved me wasting hours of researching.

    Just one point - looks like the bluetooth adapter AKG planned didn't come to fruition, although I'm sure there may be an alternative method of achieving this - purely academic for me as bluetooth was not really on my wish list.

    Thanks again OP - turning into a very HUKD induced expensive week this. ;-)

    The 451's which I own are superior and retail at £69. Go to richer sounds and then join for free as a vip member which is totally free. You will then get e mailed a £10 vouchers which can then be redeemed taking the price to £59. This makes it a cracking deal.
    Apart from the cans being great sound, there also mega portable

    Enjoy

    Amazon Marketplace is flooded with fake versions of this. Wouldn't trust buying from there.

    bought a pair of these last week off Amazon, really good sound and feel very sturdy. Make sure you run in for a few hours first.

    £10 Voucher only valid on in store sales over £100

    the 451's are listed as £60

    tempting

    From what I've read the K451's only differ in that they have the in line remote function. Sound wise they should be identical.

    i know people rave about these, i find them horrible. while they probably have the best design for portability, they sound awfull in my opinion, too much bass that covers mids and makes them blurry.

    You may want to try Koss PortaPro at 20£ which again in my opinion sounds better, or the iGrado at 45£ (basiically a 90£ Grado SR60) which in everybodies opinion mops the floor with anything under 200£.

    Please before telling me how wrong I am just compare the headhpnes above. Ive owned too many and I believe I am well past talking rubbish.

    Just so you guys understand, I also own the 750£ Greado RS1, me being the plonker who gave it the only bad review on Amazon. To make it easier, the 90£ Grado Sr60 (diluted iGrado in our case) sounds very close but much detailed and more thinner than a 750£ Grado RS1.

    Sry Op, I said too much, and many people here dont care or choose their headphones by design or brand name only.

    maybe thats why so many people contradict my view on them, i had the misfortune to buy a fake

    maybe they had fakes from amazon marketplace ?? ;-) think the review comments say it all!

    got mine last month when they were £42.95, from superfi through amazon. i can only compare to 2 pair of goldring cans and cx300 buds.got about 70-80 hrs on mine and i love them, decent bass,detail and comfortable.
    can't go wrong for £40 IMO

    Koss PortaPros are outstanding for the money, about as good a headphone you can get on a budget! Better built than my old version one Sennheiser PX100s...

    Good price, but I wouldn't mind hearing them first...

    Could you recommend best running-in procedure. I'm completely clueless in this respect, sure a Google search will explain but can't beat first hand advice.

    Just play music on them constantly, some recommend pink noise or FM static noise instead. they roughly need around 100 hours or more...

    They'll burn in just from using them. Take in mind some people prefer the original sound over the burnt in one. It's all subjective :)
