N90Q is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound..Probably the best I've ever heard I waited a long time to get my hand on these, but its truly worth the wait. These are the best sounding headphones I've ever tried...I felt lost in listening to some of my favorite songs on these....The sound quality is exquisite and very fine to even the minute detail. However I do have a few complaints.. There is no Battery Indicator and I also wish there is way to listen without the ANC on... nevertheless, I'm happy with my purchase.. and hope to enjoy this for many years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones for hearing impaired!!! I bought the N90Q as a replacement for the Master and Dynamic M60. I am hearing impaired, e.g. I wear hearing aids (hard of hearing, but not deaf although they my wife would say I am deaf). So I where I work I am on the phone a lot and it’s way more comfortable ton use headphones as opposed to a handset. However one of my biggest issues has been finding a headset that can provide me the volume level and block outside noises and can provide good call quality for kotbjust me but the phone recipient on the other and side. So after testing traditional headphones and wireless headsets from Plantronics to Sennheiser, I mean I tried literally over 40 different pairs of headphones (from traditional to Audiophile) and couldn’t find the right combination of headphones and mic that would allow me to have a great call so I could be heard well and also hear well while blocking out my office environment. What I landed with initially was the MW60 because they have a great external boom mic you can hook up to them. That worked well for a while but then I started losing more of my hearing so I went back at it trying to find headphones that can give me what I needed to work well on the phone. The long and short I found the N90Q and absolutely love them. It was the right combo of volume and noise cancellation while hooked up to my Master and Dynamic Boom Mic. The only issue I had was that the boom mic has a 3.5 mm male but the N90Q is a 2.5 mm female. So luckily I found a company that was able to creat a modded adapter that would allow me to use both (gear the call and be heard through my boom mic). Unfortunately thebafapters I bought didn’t work so I had to get a special order adapter. Nonetheless, this is the traditional way to use high end headphones but I am sure grateful I found these. If these headphones ever go bad I’ll be sure to come back to AKG!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely over priced Brought these a few weeks ago along with my new galaxy and i have to be honest, these things should give you the best sound experience in the world but they just d not get close to my old studio 2's. Definetly overpriced with poor sound quality. Would never use them again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but can be better. Waited almost a year to get my hands on these. The sound coming from these are crystal clear. I can even discern what people is saying in the background from the music. NC is better than the JBL Elite 700. The ear cups seals out most of the sound from leaching out. Less pressure on the head compared to the JBL Elite 700. DSP and EQ is too minute that it feels like nothing really changed on the music. It falls short compared to the AKG K3003i in sound envelopment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Headphones. Ever. This is the real deal. The N90Q is the Jurassic Park of head phones and not because of man eating Dinosaurs it's because they literally "sparred no expense". From the lambskin sack that has an embedded fold guide, to the extra Li-ion battery pack, to the chargeable case, to the fine grained rope cabled adapters for pick-your-device, to the radar pulse button that scans your freaking ear lobes to produce the best possible sound for your ears. Yeah, they are that good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wireless??? I don't know much about studio headphones or headphones built for the music maker as opposed to the music consumer but I purchased these with the intent of learning more about music with a tool that gave me a leg up. I didn't realize the weren't wireless though. Uuuhggghghh!! The Beats are wireless, all of them!!!

How to know in which mode we are (Standard, Studio, Surround)? When we power it on, is the headphone by default in standard mode?

Asked by: ultralite
There is no feedback informing you which setting you have selected. You must simply switch between them, and decide which one you like best. Usually, it is easiest to hear when the Surround mode is active, and once you have found that mode, you will know that the next two selections will be Standard and Studio. Here is an explanation of the three AKG N90Q Listening Modes: Three different spatial listening modes are provided. Each mode is characterized by a different spatial perception of the apparent acoustic surroundings. The first mode Standard renders the music unprocessed, like in any conventional headphone. This is useful in particular, if you use external processors such as Dolby headphone or DTS headphone X. The second mode Studio brings the sound stage to the front of the head, without adding any room effect, by means of a novel cross talk circuit derived from a patented, simplified model of head-related transfer functions. The third mode Surround adds simulated reflections around the head, designed so that you perceive the sound stage at a greater distance, without disturbing artifacts such as coloration or reverb. The mode is changed by simply pressing and immediately releasing the button. (This is the same button used to trigger auto calibration). Music being played is temporarily interrupted; the mode is changed immediately, and a brief “brushing” sound is played to illustrate the acoustic effect of the new mode. The music then immediately resumes playing using the new mode.

How do we know when the headphones are fully charged?

Asked by: Mike76
As the N90Q is charging, you will see a red constant light. When it is fully charged, the red light will shut off completely.
