Pros sound superb, compared to other earphone available in the market , this is the best so far. u got the mid,high and low all at once clearly. unlike other brand which mostly intent to focus either on the low or high but not so much on the mid sacrificing th
Cons A little bit pricey for an in ear earphone
Summary the price tag does really tell the difference in the sound quality and so far its the best in ear earphone available in the market yet
Pros mmmm, NOTHING. No really, NOTHING
Cons Non-existent bass, too much of "highs", uncomfortable, low volume etc etc
Summary Let's begin by saying I want my money back. But unfortunately I can't have them.
I wanted to buy a new set of earphones to replace the crappy ones which came with my Nokia Mobile.I had used AKG earphones before, and I was (and still am) very pleased with them. I own the K312P model. I only wanted to replace them because I needed ear-canal type of earphones to use on loud environments. I just got my hands on my new Q 350 an hour ago, and I have to say I'm frustrated the least. Why?
1) The sound is horrible
2) The bass is simply NON-existent and let no one fool you about that!
3) The highs are so high that my ears actually hurt
4) The volume is so much decreased compared to any other earphones I use right now
Besides the sound quality itself:
5) The cable is kinda sort
6) The cushions are too big for my medium sized ears. I had to use the small size, but even then they aren' t comfortable at all.
7) I've used 3 sources. On my mobile I had to pull the plug a little out in order to attach them properly. Otherwise all i heard was the right channel.
On my PC the sound was even more terrible than my mobile (that's the part where my ears hurt). On my Discman the sound was acceptable, but far worse than any other pair I own anyway.
8) The price is too high. My previous AKG earphones cost around 10-15 euros. I got Q 350 for 52 euros. I expected at least 30 euros worth of better quality, but all I got was a 3 euros worth of quality earphones.
9) I don't like the green color, but I already knew it from the beginning so...
10) The case say "cable-winder included". It is not.
For reference reasons I tested these side by side to my AKG K312P (they still rock), my Nokia ones which came with my mobile, and my 2 sets of Sony Ericsson which also came with my mobile. The Q 350s failed in every comparison, even against me mediocre Nokia earphones. They also failed in the comfort factor.
The music I tested is basically rock music (Tool, Radiohead, Monster Magnet, Mars Volta, and Requiem For A Dream soundtrack). They failed in EVERY test.
Now, whenever I see another "Quincy Jones approved product", I'm gonna run away!!
Can I have my money back mr. Jones???
Shame on AKG!
Pros Extremely light, tough and durable cables, perfect sound and it sticks in the ear properly. And it comes with a hardish carry case.
Cons Slightly pricey if anything and the cable type has kinks for a very long time.
Summary Out of the box, i was worried, they're slightly pricey and was scared it wouldnt live up to its price tag, however some classical music and some rock n roll, perfect sound, no distortions and you can hear the quality spewing out the ear pieces. Forget the price tag and you can something that matches a bose or shure earpiece. AND IT COMES IN NEON GREEEEEEEEEEN!!!!!!!
