AKG N5005 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible sound, clarity and separation My first foray into hi res audio IEMs and I am blown away. The N5005s pair beautifully with my Chord Mojo and hi res audio files. The accessories (bluetooth cable, sound adjusting filters, various ear tips and hard sided case) are extremely useful. I'm hearing details in my music I've never heard before, and the wireless cable does a great job when I'm on the go. My only complaint, and I'm not alone here, is that it can be tough to get a good fit with the attached ear tips. As a result for me the bass is not as present as it could be. It looks like I'll be trying various after market tips. Headfi.org has an N5005 thread with some great suggestions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome. The best earphone. All the best. Awesome. Sound quality is amazing, perfect fit and many accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love their sound I own medium class IEMs from Westone and while they are awesome, these outperform them regarding cleanliness and atmosphere. Not size though, as the N5005 are rather large. Once again I am astonished how good IEMs can sound. (Note: I am affiliated with this company.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn’t get a good fit I bought these earbuds with the hope that they would be fantastic. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a tight enough fit with any of the included ear tips. The product was returned.

Does it have 3.0MM jack? I can see it available in some videos, but in the box list it&rsquo;s not listed. Can you confirm it plz, most of the time I will be using with my iPhone...

Asked by: Muthuerd
Unfortunately, the AKG N5005 does not have a 3.0mm cable. It comes with a 3.5mm cable, a 2.5mm audio balanced cable and a BT cable (N05BC) for wireless streaming and hands free calls. For more information about the cables that are included, please check page 12 of the Quick Start Guide found on this page, thank you!

Is there AptX HD support over the normal AptX?

Is N5005 good for studio monitoring and live performance?

The headphone is not design for studio monitoring and live performance. It is only design to replicate studio sound and quality.

you say bluetooth cable of the N5005 is &quot;functionally&quot; the same as the one on the N40 and support AptX codec, but also AAC for iPhone???. &nbsp; I do not see that mentioned anywhere like you do for your non-iem HPs.

Asked by: ChipB
The previous answer has been corrected: although the connector type is identical (MMCX), the actual dimensions are different. This means that the N5005 cables cannot be used with the other AKG models such as N40 or N30. We are very sorry for any confusion from the first response. Also, the N5005 supports both AptX and AAC on iOS devices.

HI, Does N05BC bluetooth cable support N40 or N30? Can I buy them separately? Thanks

Hi. Please note this correction of earlier answer: although the connector type is identical (MMCX), the actual dimensions are different. This means that the N5005 cables can NOT be used with the other AKG models, such as N40 or N30. We are sorry about any confusion caused by the first reply.

The N5005 has impedance spec of 18 ohms. Can i use a player - Headphone jack (balanced output) 4-conductor, &oslash;2.5 mm, impedance: 32 to 600 &Omega;* * Do not connect headphones that have an impedance outside the rated range as this may result in damage.

Hi I am interested in the AKG N5005 and want to know what the spec is for noise isolation?

Asked by: McLoughlin
I don't have the technical details for the isolation, but hear this: I have tried many IEMs, and this is by far the most isolated IEM I have tried. I have a Sony WI-1000X with active noise cancelling beside it, and in most use scenarios, the noise isolation can be comparable to the ANC that the Sony has. I have a pair of custom IEMs and these are superior in terms of noise isolation. The SpinFit works really well already, but for a better seal, foams will improve isolation even more. Simply Amazing. That being said, the sound &quot;might&quot; not be the best in this price range, but the benefits are obvious, and it is honestly not a bad sound, depending on your preference.
