K 495NC is rated 2.3333333333333335 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control Two headed Snake . . . Sound Amazing, but will break at the hinge. I've gone thru several pair before I finally had to call it quits and go with a different headphone. Real shame as the sound quality is so good on them. They should of paid a little more attention to the construction of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounding headphones, good noise cancelling I have owned my pair for more than a year. I do not find any issues with the build quality as mentioned in another review, but as with any hinged headphone, the hinge could be a weak point. Proper handling is key. I don't baby my headphones but treat them with a reasonable amount of respect and have had no mechanical issues with them at all. The sound quality is outstanding and they are very comfortable to wear and not at all fatiguing. I do find that the noise cancelling is really only intended to eliminate lower frequency noise, such as ambient aircraft noises, but still allows you to hear voices pretty easily. If your purpose is to essentially eliminate most ambient sound then these are not appropriate for you. Playing music at a low to moderate volume eliminates the outside world, much more so than if you turn off the noise cancelling. These are best characterized are relatively neutral headphones, thankfully not bass heavy like so many current headphones out there. Excellent sound balance. I cannot normally wear typical headphones for any length of time, so I am very happy that these work so well for me and can wear them for extended periods with no issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really bad construction for the price I bought these and a week later one of the hinges broke up. Looking for a replacement I noticed that on eBay there are a lot of these with the hinges broken, so there is a serious flaw on the materials. Good sound quality though.

Have the build quality of these been improved?  There are a lot of people that have had issues with the hinge breaking.   And if so, how do I know I am getting the improved version?
