Review - AKG N90Q Headphones By Headphones.Reviewed.Com
T he AKG N90 Q over-ear headphones (yours for £1,200 or $1,499.95) are taken out for review by At this price you'd expect a good review score and it's so with the AKG N90Q headphones scoring 9.0 (out of 10) and the reviewer concluding that the AKG N90Q headphones (Q stands for Quincy Jones) are better than 86% of the headphones (across all categories, so not just over-ear) tested. They also take the price into an initial summary of - an absurdly good pair of headphones, for an absurd price - and go onto conclude about the AKG N90Qs :-

With 12 customizable settings for audio, always-on ANC, an extremely comfortable fit, and the most opulent case we’ve ever seen, the AKG N90Q Headphones (MSRP: $1,499.95) are a luxury product through and through. Unfortunately, based on just cost alone they’ll only appeal to a very small group within an already small demographic. There’s simply too much here for the average consumer. Unless you’re an audiophile who’s willing to blow a pay cheque on a single pair of headphones, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to get the most out of this product.

But, that’s okay. Now and again it’s fun for a company to go all-out and throw caution to the wind. AKG has done that, and in the process created some of our favourite headphones to date. Sure, they're overpriced, absurdly opulent, and over-the-top—but we love them anyway. Would we buy them? Probably not, but we don't have $1,500 to spend on headphones. And why would we when there's arguably better Quincy Jones-branded headphones, like the AKG Q 701 (MSRP: $479.00), which you can get for a fraction of the price.
