AKG N60NC (2015) vs Audio-Technica ATH-AR3 (2016)

Analysis:

The AKG N60NC (2015) was loved by reviewers at SoundGuys, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "Best noise cancelling headphones" roundup where it was named its "Best On-ears", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Taking a look at the Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-AR3BT (2016), it got featured in roundups from two reliable sources that conduct their own testing - TrustedReviews and Tech Advisor - but it fell short of earning a top spot in either.

We examined all of the review data that we could find and first took a look at sources that reviewed both of them, like TrustedReviews, and found that they haven't shown a preference for either product.

Then we checked which sources liked these two On-Ear Headphones best and found that the AKG N60NC (2015) got its highest, 10, review score from reviewers at What Hi-Fi?, whereas the Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-AR3BT (2016) earned its best score of 9 from TrustedReviews.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other On-Ear Headphones on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by On-Ear Headphones being 7.4 out of 10, whereas the AKG N60NC (2015) and Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-AR3BT (2016) managed averages of 8.9 and 8.5 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct AKG N60NC (2015) vs. Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-AR3BT (2016) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
