Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 83?

customers report that it has great expert reviews with an average expert rating of 90%. Looking across the entire Sony headphones range, the average reviews for all Sony headphones are also excellent.
Released by AKG 6 months ago, it is one of the newest headphones on the market, incorporating some of the latest pair of headphones features.
This pair of headphones has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Big speaker size
Precisely balanced response<br>
3.5mm (1/8") plug<br>
Professional build quality<br>
Closed-back design<br>
Over-ear design and lightweight construction<br>
Self-adjusting headband<br>
Large 40mm drivers<br>

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each pair of headphones by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the pair of headphones is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec headphones come to market, the older headphones will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

    When Are Most New AKG Earphones Released?

    Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any clear pattern in the release month for new AKG headphones.

    The biggest month last year for new AKG earphone releases was December, with three new AKG earphones released that month. Two new AKG earphones were released in May 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new AKG pair of headphones releases. June was the biggest month in 2016 for new AKG headphones, with two new AKG headphones released that month.

    How Fast Do AKG Earphone Prices Drop After Release?

    In the first 6 months after release, AKG headphones drop in price by 8% on average.

    That means that on a typical AKG earphone costing £91 you could save on average £7 by waiting 6 months before buying.
