Some­times, when you want to look good, you have to take a small hit on per­sonal com­fort. That’s cer­tainly the case with this AKG head­set – it’s at­trac­tive, min­i­mal­ist and stylish, but its on-ear head­phones (rather than en­cas­ing the ear) can get un­com­fort­able af­ter a while. In terms of noise, how­ever, it’s in­cred­i­bly hard to beat, cre­at­ing near-si­lence in most noisy sit­u­a­tions. It also boasts an im­pres­sive bat­tery life of over 40 hours, and can­cel­la­tion be­ing ac­ti­vated by turn­ing a ring on the left earcup, coolly cut­ting your­self off from the out­side world.

PROS Stylish, eas­ily fold­able, USB-rechar­gable

CONS Not the most com­fort­able pair here
