How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

If you're looking for stylish, comfortable and great-sounding Bluetooth headphones, then the K845BTs should be right in your wheel house -- though maybe not your price range. PC Mag says they offer "powerful audio performance," and What Hi-Fi says sound is "crisp, detailed, open and precise across the frequency spectrum." AKG not only delivers a good looking headphone set, but also one that G Style says feels "great" and "not too overwhelming." Wireless headphones often come with a higher price tag, and the K845BTs are no different. But, at least you know you're getting good value for your hard-earned cash.
