Great Little IEM's

Posted

Pros: very light; good construction; good sound; scales with amps well

Cons: only 1 pair of each ear-tip size; a bit muddy un-amped; volume slider is annoying

Intro: After selling my Sony XB-500's, all I was left with was open back headphones, so I needed a pair of portables for school. I was originally going to Purdue the AKG Q350 IEM's, but I didn't have enough money, so when I saw this on amazon for $30.00 with tax, I jumped on it. Design Overview: The AKG K340's are probably the LIGHTEST in-ear monitors ive ever held, and that combined with the super soft eartips, leads to great comfort. They have a WIDE nozzle, so most standard ear-tips wont fit on them. They ear-tips they do come with isolate fairly well, and add almost no flavors to the sound of the monitors.

Hidden Gem!

Pros: FANTASTIC comfort, Clear sound, Flat cable, Headband bends nicely

Cons: Cables aren't detachable, Cables feel a bit loose, Not as closed as you'd like to believe

These can be run clearly and cleanly out of almost any source, although if you REALLY want brain mashing bass, a FiiO e7/E17 with bass boost will smash your skull. Signature: Don't get me wrong if you think that these are just a basshead's cans, these have clear sound throughout the spectrum, the highs sparkle, the mids come through clear and present, and the bass, well, the bass is thumpy, and just...

TOO MUCH BASS!!!

Posted

Pros: Decent sound, good comfort, fantastic isolation

Cons: waaaay to much bass, burn in did nothing

i bought these buds several months before being introduced to the Hi-Fi community, so i had no idea what to expect. they look quite snazzy, reviews were good, so i clicked "buy" on amazon. they arrived, and i immediately started jamming out. i loved them, and wore them 24/7. my friend mentioned a 'burn in' so i googled it, and gave it a whirl with 20 hours of Dream Theater, Rush, and Iron Maiden. I picked them up the next day, put them in my ear and nothing had changed. at all. i kept loving them for a good 5 months till i ordered my Sennheiser HD518's for my birthday. I LOVED the senns, they sounded IMMENSELY better, and i wore THOSE 24/7. i put the buds back in, because we had to go...
