N60NC Wireless


On-ear wireless headphones with active noise cancellation

Sounds amazing. And then you switch it on

AKG N60NC wireless headphones feature AKG Signature sound that’s deep in bass and rich in the mid-range, as well as best-in-class noise cancellation that’s fine-tuned for traveling. And while a single charge gives you 15 hours of uninterrupted listening pleasure with both Bluetooth and Active Noise Cancellation turned on, they sound just as awesome in the passive mode. A button on the ear-cup lets you control all music playback, and Bluetooth gives you wireless access to all your music. Best of all, the flat-foldable design and thoughtfully-included accessories – airline adapter, tangle-free fabric cable, carrying case – mean these headphones are ready to travel when you are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last set of headphones you'll ever buy! I bought these a two days ago and I'm totally blown away! The dynamic range is amazing and distortion free. I gave these a baptism of fire during rush hour on the tube - the noise cancelling was unparalleled. Throw in the comfort of the plush pads, I almost missed my stop! The call quality is crystal clear and the bluetooth connectivity fantastic and the design flawless. As much as I wanted to complain about the £178 price tag, they're worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, oh wow these headphones are AMAZING This is my first experience with AKG, and I have never loved a pair of headphones as much as these. I really thought I was going crazy the first time I or them on. My AC and fridge can be loud, and when I put these on, the background noise completely disappeared. I do not know how noise cancelling works, BUT THEY WORK. The bass punches just enough, and the treble and mid ranges are crystal clear. Holy cow these headphones are simply the best I've ever owned. I am so glad I have these. I'm an audiophile, and own over 1500 tracks, and these actually make my music sound even better. I can't say enough good things about them, other than AKG = Awesomely Killer Great? Forget Bose and Beats, remember AKG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Comfortable Stylish and a Great Sound Freebie with new phone purchase. Previously owned Bose QC25. These compare favourably and I must say I prefer the sound of the AKG cans. Very comfortable and lightweight. Noise reduction good but obviously not as good as over ear headset. Bluetooth is a good move up from corded. Would definitely recommend.

The ability to remotely control volume has suddenly stopped working. I have tried this on two devices that previously worked fine. Is this a fault or is there a setting I have missed?

How can I connect wirelessly to airplane media system? The flight adapter is a standard 2 pin 3.5mm, whereas Boeing and Airbus use a 3.5mm and 2.5mm pin. I had to use my audio cable, so there was no advantage to having the wireless version.

Asked by: alan101
Hi, and thank you for supporting AKG! The twin 3.5 mm solution is still very widespread, and the tendency now is to move to the single 3.5 mm stereo jack used in portable devices in airplanes. This plug is of course the standard plug on your headphones. The adapter that you mention seems not to be available on e.g. Amazon UK at all. You may want to ask the airlines that you are using for an adapter that fits their system. The actual connectors used is more a matter of the airline and their supplier of chairs, than it is dependent on the manufacturer of the aircraft.

Are these headphones aptX compatible? ie. is it worth me buying an aptX wireless transmitter to pair with these headphones, or just a normal one?

Asked by: MM88

I might be being a bit thick here, but should the noise cancelling work automatically? I'm using these in Bluetooth mode, but they don't seem to be noise cancelling. Eg. I'm wearing them as I type and can easily hear my keyboard over the music.

Asked by: TomX
The noise cancelling feature is always active when using Bluetooth. However, the N60NC headphones are noise cancelling, not sound cancelling. This means that the feature will counter constant noise such as from an air plane engine but not random sounds such as typing on a keyboard. If you are still experiencing issues with the noise cancelling feature, please contact our customer support team and we will be more than happy to assist you: https://uk.akg.com/support-product.html

Can the blue LED be shut off when listening to music? I use these at night and the LED is very bright.

Asked by: DaveT
Hi! Unfortunately, there is no way to turn the LED light off or even Dim it. It was designed as an indicator whether your device is connected or not and for charging.
