FAQs & How-Tos

8 results
  • This headphone does not support aptX, aptX HD, aptX Low Latency audio codecs.
  • Yes, both the AAC and the aptX codecs are supported. aptX HD and aptX Low Latency are not supported. Please note that N5005 is an in-ear headphone capable of extremely high audio reproduction quality. Wireless transmission cannot deliver the quality that a first-class analog, cabled signal can. The best possible quality is available with the balanced 4-pole 2.5 mm jack, connected directly to a highest-quality headphone amplifier that supports this connection, fed by the highest quality source.
  • If you are experiencing issues getting the app to communicate with your headphones, (assuming you have already paired the headphones with the device) go into the communication apps audio settings. You will likely find the resolution there. You may have to set your headphones as the ‘communication device’ within the app you are using.

  • The best way is to carefully insert your nail in the groove where the two halves of the plug meet, then press into the groove until the two sections separate. If you pull on the cord, you may damage the cable by dislodging the cable from the plug.
  • Please note that two types of ear tips are included with AKG N5005. The black ones are normal silicone tips, and they are fine for many users. The Milky-white ones are from the company SpinFit. They have a special middle section that permits the tip to swivel in all directions, making them able to adapt to various insertion angles. Please try both. For some, one is better, for some, the other one is better. You make the decision. In normal use, the tip that makes the best seal with your ear canal is the best choice, since bass reproduction is very dependent on this seal. However, some users may find that they prefer a slightly less tight seal.
  • No, this is not possible. Even though the MMCX (micro-miniature coaxial) connectors seem identical, they are not the same dimensions.
  • Actually the N5005 is very special, because it is BOTH wireless and wired, right out of the box! This is a result of its advanced design, where the cables can be removed from the speaker pods by clicking apart the MMCX connectors. The flexibility in this arrangement becomes very clear when you look at the cables that are in the box when you open it. First, there is the normal cable with 3.5 mm stereo jack and a three-button remote control. This cable is for normal sources, smartphones, tablet computers etc. There is a switch on the back of the remote that permits you to select Android/universal or iOS remote function, for total flexibility. Second, you get the Bluetooth cable, which has a battery box and a three-button remote on the cable. This cable simply converts your N5005 into a wireless headphone. AptX and AAC are supported, but not aptX HD or LL. BT transmission will not be capable of unlocking the full potential of the N5005 due to its nature as a lossy compression system, but it is nice to have this option. The cable has a chin slide lock that can secure the headphones under your chin. Playing time is up to 8 hours, and charging takes place in less than 2 hours. Third, as an indication of the high quality of audio that N5005 masters, you get a special, fully balanced cable without remote control. It uses the 4-pole 2.5 mm jack that you will find on the new generation of high-end headphone amplifiers and music players. With this connection and the proper source material and electronics, you can experience the pinnacle of music reproduction.
  • This product does not feature an IPX rating and is not waterproof. Over exposure to water or moisture can result in irreversible damage to this unit.
