Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 84?

customers report that it has very good expert reviews with an average expert rating of 90%. Looking across the entire Audio-Technica headphones range, the average reviews for all Audio-Technica headphones are also excellent.
Released by AKG only 2 months ago, it is one of the newest earphones 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:
Bigger than average 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.
