N20U is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engineered To My Liking. based on my preference, this set of earbuds sounds pretty balanced. The bass is just right and not boomy. The mid range is excellent and the highs are pretty well blended in. This is the best earbuds I have ever had. Kudo to the engineers of AKG. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High five to the Engineer who created this model!) This is the best model on the market right now! I had the ie4`s two times, then I decided to pick up some good earbuds around 100$. I listened almost 10 earbuds for two days, trying to find similar analytical-reference sound signature as my hd-25 alu`s, but portative for my iOS-device. Instantly, loved the N20U for its neutral wide frequency response; tight, but not overwhelming bass/sub-bass; open, crisp, but fun highs; balanced sound supply in all the critical rhythmic frequencies in the electronic psy-music! To do this great in-ear headphones better, AKG might consider improve the cable housing near the connector (it is my second pair, because of this issue) and improve the microphone sensitivity, while saving the price tag. Design is great, iOS/Android feature is also great, the case is ideal, the sound is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely impressive sound I have a pair of K612 Pro headphones so I was hoping the AKG earphones sounded as good. They do. very rich and bright with a strong bass. I suppose the N40s are even better but at this price I don't think you will find a better sounding in-ear earphones

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! Just received my N20U in-ear head phones, in a "splendid" packaging. Now, the sound is crisp, clear, and outstanding that puts you right in the location of wherever the music is being produced and played! Outstanding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great audio, premium build, superior comfort. These are by far the best in-ear headphones I've owned. As the title says, they are difficult to beat for in-ear buds. I can wear them for hours, almost forgetting that I am wearing them while providing a full rich and warm sound to all types of music. The bass response is lacking initially and needs some break-in time to get the low frequencies. My vote for the best in-ear buds around! Must have

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality work the price I've had these headphones for about 3 weeks now and I'm completely satisfied. The braided cord seems to be perfect for durability and the earbuds are comfortable. Sound quality is top notch and I find myself list in my music often. This is without the music being at loud volumes also. The carrying case is small and protective. I have no issues carrying my headphones in it and tossing it into my backpack.

Is this good for moderate workouts considering falling while working out and withstanding sweat or getting wet? Is it good for everyday use?(Comfortability, sound, and approximate durability of the product in time) How does it look in the ear when using?

Asked by: Jar3D11
No, we do not recommend that the AKG N20U be used as an athletic headphone. It does not have any IPX rating that protects against sweat or moisture. Overexposure to sweat or moisture can cause damage to the headphones. For normal, everyday use, the AKG N20U is definitely a good choice and it is an in-ear headphones that has a very stylish and sophisticated look.

Could you please advise what's semi open back design? Does it mean it does not have noise isolation and others can hear what you are listening to? Also, what does it mean by reference class earphones? Thanks.

Asked by: Cal N
The N20U doesn't feature an open-back design but instead a semi-closed back design, for superior acoustics and enhanced bass response. It consists of a small vent, which permits the speaker to "breathe", and is also a bass tuning aperture. The reference class is not a term based on a standard, or on measurements. It means top quality in build and sound in our range that the materials used are as follows: aluminum housing, soft silicone, and non-tangle fabric weave cable.
