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 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.

Once the N5005 Bluetooth cable is disconnected from the smartphone, how long does it take to be turned off automatically? Is this adjustable by an option anywhere? Also, is it possible to turn off the blue light when it is connected?

Asked by: Joel
The AKG&nbsp;N5005 would automatically shut&nbsp;down after 10 minutes of no-audio signal via Bluetooth. It is a fixed feature, same with the blue LED indicator light which we use to determine if the headphones is successfully connected to a Bluetooth device.
