7 Reasons For for Choosing the AKG K92

Noise Reduction

The AKG K92 supports noise reduction, and so does the SOL REPUBLIC Relays, however the Kingston HyperX Cloud, the Shure SRH440 and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 do not. More ...

'Noise Reduction' denotes how good the headphones are at passively cutting down external noise leaking into your music from outside. Please note this is different from noise cancelling - that is an active process, and far more effective. This uses foam and tight-fitting seals to block out unwanted noise.

The better the noise reduction, the less annoying background noise will affect your music while you're enjoying it.

Longer Cable Length

The AKG K92 is a 3m cable length headphones. That's 1.7m longer than the Kingston HyperX Cloud (1.3m) and 2.4m longer than the SOL REPUBLIC Relays (0.6m). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Detachable Cable

The AKG K92 has a detachable cable, and so do the Kingston HyperX Cloud and the SOL REPUBLIC Relays, but the Shure SRH440 and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 do not. More ...

'Detachable Cable' denotes whether the headphones have a cable that can be easily detached, or whether it's hard-wired to the unit.

A detachable cable is helpful, because it allows for easy replacement if something goes wrong with the cable. It also means that if you drop the headphones or get them caught on something, then the wire simply disconnects rather than yanking the headphones and possibly damaging them.

Better Kagoo Score

The AKG K92 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 scored 84.

Considerably Better Expert Reviews

Based on 7 expert reviews, the AKG K92 has an average review score of 93%, whereas the Kingston HyperX Cloud has an average rating of 83% (based on 3 reviews), the Shure SRH440 has an average rating of 79% (based on 20 reviews), the SOL REPUBLIC Relays has an average rating of 80% (based on 20 reviews) and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 has an average rating of 75% (based on 22 reviews).

Better Brand

AKG headphones have an average rating of 89.1%, but Kingston only has an average rating of 73.5%, Shure only has an average rating of 86.1%, SOL REPUBLIC only has an average rating of 70.3% and Soundcore only has an average rating of 83.8%.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Pcauthority.com.au and Whathifi.com both gave the AKG K92 a better review score. More ...

Pcauthority.com.au: AKG K92 = 100% vs Shure SRH440 = 67%

Whathifi.com: AKG K92 = 100% vs SOL REPUBLIC Relays = 80%

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the AKG K92

Heavier

The AKG K92 is a 200g headphones. That's 168g lighter than the Kingston HyperX Cloud (368g), 111g lighter than the Shure SRH440 (311g) and 189.8g heavier than the SOL REPUBLIC Relays and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 (10.2g). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

10mm Smaller Driver Size

The AKG K92 is a 40mm driver headphones. That's 10mm smaller than the Kingston HyperX Cloud and the Shure SRH440 (50mm), 34.2mm bigger than the SOL REPUBLIC Relays (5.8mm) and 30mm bigger than the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 (10mm). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a pair of powerful headphones.

Does Not Support Bluetooth

The AKG K92 does not support Bluetooth (As do the the Kingston HyperX Cloud and the Shure SRH440), whereas the SOL REPUBLIC Relays and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 do. More ...

The denotes whether the headphones support wireless Bluetooth communication or not.

Bluetooth allows you to stream music and audio directly to the headphones without the need for wires. This makes the headphones far more convenient and easy to use, and frees you from the restriction of an audio cable.

Not Noise Canceling

The AKG K92 is not noise canceling (As do the the SOL REPUBLIC Relays and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2), whereas the Kingston HyperX Cloud and the Shure SRH440 are. More ...

'Noise Cancelling' denotes whether the headphones actively filter out unwanted noise when in use.

Noise-cancelling headphones mean that far less background noise filters through to your ears. This makes music easier to hear, and can lead to improved concentration and productivity, as well as being nicer to use in noisy environments (such as airplanes).

3% Smaller Headphone Sensitivity

The AKG K92 is a 113dB headphone sensitivity headphones. That's 3dB smaller than the Kingston HyperX Cloud (116dB), 8dB bigger than the Shure SRH440 (105dB) and 23dB bigger than the SOL REPUBLIC Relays (90dB). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

Not Foldable

The AKG K92 is not foldable, whereas the Kingston HyperX Cloud, the Shure SRH440, the SOL REPUBLIC Relays and the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 are. More ...

'Foldable' denotes whether the headphones can be folded down into a small, portable form.

Foldable headphones are easier to carry or store when not in use, and are less likely to break through mishandling.

More Expensive by $31

The AKG K92 is $7 more expensive than the Kingston HyperX Cloud, $31 more expensive than the SOL REPUBLIC Relays and $3 more expensive than the Soundcore Liberty Air 2.

Fewer Sellers

The AKG K92 is only stocked by 7 sellers, but the Kingston HyperX Cloud is stocked by 10 sellers, the Shure SRH440 is stocked by 10 sellers and the SOL REPUBLIC Relays is stocked by 9 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over Four Years

The AKG K92 is three years older than the Kingston HyperX Cloud, three years older than the Shure SRH440 and four years older than the Soundcore Liberty Air 2.

One Less Award
