Save 80% on AKG N90Q Reference Headphones

There AKG headphones have it all: Noise cancelling, built-in DAC, high-end build quality, and sound tuning by Quincy Jones. Nice! But what's truly amazing is this deal: Normally priced at $1499.95, you can pick up the N90Q for only $299.99, for a total savings of $1119.96.

When you follow the link to the Harman website, don't panic when you see the price listed at $1499.95, the discount is applied when you add the headphones to the shopping cart. Add a pair to the cart and the price will appear as $299.99.

Why settle for Beats or Bose when for the same money you can get top-tier, exquisitely engineered AKG headphones. Available in both all-black and black with gold accents, hey have been around for a few years now, so there are many reviews to reference and glean how they perform. Not everyone loves the auto EQ functionality, but generally reviewers regarded them as performing a level that is expected from reference class headphones.

These headphones are "noise canceling always on" design. Please note, they are not cordless. Battery life is 10 hours, and you cannot use the headphones without charge, but the headphones ship with their own compact power brick for on the go recharging. The electronics found here within these headphones are in the service of audio fidelity, not so much "lifestyle experience" as with Bose, and they are not optional.



Rated frequency responses 10 Hz to 25 kHz and sensitivity is listed at 110 dB. These headphones are easy to drive with a 32 ohm impedance. Weight is 460 g.

The foremost reason you buy top tier headphones from AKG is for the sound quality. And while 1500 bucks may be too much to justify, at $299.95 the AKG N90Q is a much more appealing value proposition.

Key features include the built-in high quality DAC that lets you use these headphones with a USB cable to directly stream digital files.

It's the combination of it being a rather ridiculously great deal and the fact that headphones are selling like hotcakes lately (statistically speaking) due to the stay at home orders etc.

Back in stock but at full price.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.
