Good Sound, poor microphone
on 7 July 2014
I've bought these earphones for my girlfriend for her iPhone. I have a pair of old K340 and found it satisfying. Compared to its predecessor which emphasizes on bass performance which did nicely for pop and electric music playback but failed to offer good mids (vocal) performance, the K350 sounds more like k319 which offers natural and balanced (as an AKG should) sound. The sound stage is better organised and produces very solid stereo effect: everything sits where they should when listening classical music. There is noticeable sweetening but very slight. The mids was greatly improved compared with K340 and treble and bass are moderately good. Some complains about the sound quality of the K350, while I think either they love distorted beats like sub-woofer sound or the K350 failed to fit into their ears properly, I recommend using comply ear tips in the latter case.
The biggest drawback of K350 is its microphone; the voice is tiny unless speak towards the mic closely, which made it nearly pointless. Build quality is fine to me, it doesn't feel very cheap although definitely not premium. In conclusion, I am really satisfied with these earphones and recommend them to whom like natural and easy listening sound.
