Can you stay later at work? Did you pick up the dry cleaning? Why did you let our son wear socks in the bathtub? So many annoying questions, so few ways to tune them out. With the AKG Noise Canceling Headphones, you can mute the world while you get listen to high-quality, crisp audio. Both the K 495 NC and K 490 NC (priced at $350 and $250 respectively) have built-in rechargeable batteries that charge by USB, and both feature brushed-metal parts, leather earcups, an adjustable leather headband, a carrying case, two audio cables, and a flight adapter. The idea is tune out the world, but it’s nice to know you have the option of making cell phone calls with AKG’s in-line remote with a built-in microphone. Both models will be available later this month.
