AKG N200nc wireless headphones review

We can definitely say that AKG is in a transitional period, the company focuses on its owner, the South Korean Samsung, and is trying to show a fundamentally different line. Many models that were planned to be announced and released to the market in the summer are just appearing. One of these ghosts can be considered AKG N200nc, these are headphones in the form of a clamp with noise reduction. They were created for travel, hence the focus on design and some implementation features.

Let's start with the fact that the rim is quite massive, like the design itself. Unlike the same U Flex from Samsung, it is much larger in diameter, and still practically does not bend, every time I was afraid to break the headphones. While the U Flex can be bent fairly easily, it won't do anything. But these are headphones of a completely different class.

The color of the headphones is black and silver, they received the Red Dot Design Award, that is, they were singled out from a host of other products. For my taste, they are quite common for their class and the design does not stand out in any way, it is familiar. Massive, tight to the neck, if you wear shirts, then this is not your choice. Maybe people with thin necks will be more enthusiastic about them, but I don't like the tightness of the design, and also that the headband is not very flexible. Yes, and a soft carrying case does not give confidence that the shackle cannot be broken in a backpack. Some protruding parts are felt under the rubber layer, they are not too disguised, and this is also a minus in ergonomics, nothing should be felt in principle.

The main complaints about ergonomics are related to the fact that there are a lot of similar headphones, including those with noise reduction, they work a little differently. Since it is possible, but not necessary, to implement touch control in such a form factor, the company relied on mechanical switches. On the left side - volume control, play / pause button (you can also call the voice assistant with it). On the right side is the Talk Thru key (it is also responsible for ambient sounds).

One of the headbands has a 2.5 mm jack, you can connect the headphones with a wire. This is unusual for this kind of headset, but not at all unique. The first headphones with this option were Sony WI1000X.

The idea that AKG engineers chose this particular model as a prototype for their headset did not leave me, there are a lot of similar parameters. But there are not many alternatives in this segment.

Probably worth mentioning is that when you wear headphones, you can magnetize the ears to each other. It's comfortable. In the ear, the earphones hold perfectly, do not slip off the neck, for example, when you take off your jacket. Greater weight compared to analogues is a plus in this sense.

For AKG, these headphones are supported by the application, just like the older model N700nc, but you can only configure the equalizer, auto-off, plus assign one or another function to the dedicated button.

The poverty of the application is obvious, and this makes AKG not as attractive as the same Sony, there are many settings, and the product itself turned out to be more interesting. But the sound quality of AKG is noticeably better, the sound is soft, there are rounded basses. For urban conditions, streaming music is a good solution, but with a number of reservations. To begin with, the list of supported codecs is very short - SBC, UHQ from Samsung (aka Samsung Scalable Codec). If you listen to music not from a Samsung smartphone, then most likely these headphones will not be of interest to you, they are very simple and inferior to models with aptX / aptX HD support or those with a pumped AAC version. Sounds very simple with all non-Samsung smartphones.

But Samsung's proprietary codec, on the contrary, performs well, although it would not hurt to set the connection priority over music quality, in places where there are a lot of Bluetooth devices, interference often occurs! For example, in New York, I could not listen to these headphones, the connection was torn too often or the sound deteriorated (Bluetooth version 4.2)

Revisiting the product from AKG, I couldn't get rid of the feeling that it was created a long time ago, without taking into account modern realities. And these headphones would have been perfect a couple of years ago, when there were no competitors or True Wireless took off.

Let's look at the noise reduction function. In an airplane, it works so-so, the sounds of the rumble of turbines are still audible, as well as what is being addressed to you. We can say that noise reduction is designed for the city. Comparing with the Sony WF-1000XM3 TW-headset, I realized that the latter works much better, cut off external noise. Passive soundproofing is good here and there, but active soundproofing in AKG is noticeably inferior.

AKG N200nc wireless headphones review

If you choose headphones among those that have noise reduction and are focused on the city, then these Sony are the competitors, they are focused on the same segment. But the form factor is different.

The earbuds last up to 10 hours, which is very good, but it will take about two hours to charge them. There is an indicator that shows the beginning and end of the charging process.

In Europe, the AKG N200nc is priced at €249 and will go on sale in September (announced at IFA). In Russia, the cost has not been determined, but I would venture to suggest that it will be a little less than 20,000 rubles, most likely, they will be 17,990 rubles, exactly the same as plugs from Sony.

AKG N200nc wireless headphones review

Evaluating these headphones, I find it difficult to understand who they are made for. The form factor itself is not very popular in Russia, it came to court in the USA and Korea, in other countries it is not so in demand. The same U Flex Toyota Hiace 1997 White for Sale are relatively popular , these are very good headphones, and at their cost of 4,000 rubles, they simply have no alternatives. But they, on the other hand, do not have noise reduction, but is it really necessary in the city? In my opinion, few people need this, and in this case it is necessary to focus on the implementation of this particular function, and in AKG it is not very good. A very niche offer and only for AKG fans, I simply don’t see other target audiences for them. Too expensive offer, the main function does not work in the best way.
