I was looking for a set of phones that I could travel with, yet still sound good. I tried using my studio phones, but always found it to be pain relocating these in and out of the studio. After a little research, I found the AKG Q460's. Straight out of the box, I was blown away - great sounding phones that should probably cost a lot more! Good punchy bass, rounded out mids and pleasant highs. If you're looking for pro quality and great sounding headphones that you can use with your iphone, ipod or ipad - look no further. Great buy!
