Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"My only complaint so far is that the cord is too short for my tastes."
_
"The cord was not the best I've seen but it hasn't tangled on me yet."
_
"Before I bought AKG q350, I had seen many bad reviews regarding this earphone that the bass is lacking, cable too short, painful treble, and yada yada."
_
"I had my klipsch s4 cable pulled out (and broke obviously) When I left from my desk because the cable got stuck with the drawer."
_
"The length of cable is not long, but it's perfect for me."
_
"Great headphones only down side is the cord is to short"
_
"Lots of great sweet sounding mids... Plus they are extremely light, there is BARELY any cable noise, and the remote is pretty useful."
_
"I love the fact that the cord seems very strong, unlike the flimsy could-break-at-any-minute cords found on cheaper headphones."

Control

Control:
"If you have an HTC phone and buy these, you will not be able to use the microphone or volume controls."
_
"With my blackberry, it functions as earbuds, but I was not able to use it to control hands-free features."
_
"(Note: I do not have a listening device that's compatible with the AKG Q350's in-line remote control microphone features, so I can't speak to how well those features work.)"
_
"With my blackberry, it functions as earbuds, but I was not able to use it to control hands-free features."
_
"The controls work well, and they are really comfortable, but I was still going to give them a 3 out of 5."
_
"They have an inline volume play control with microphone in the right ear-wire so you can use them seamlessly with an I-phone or smart-phone, although I did not try that capacity out."
_
"The set I previously owneda Klippsch was great sound too but these outshine, especially the middles, its the mp3 thatlimits the sound not the earphones in many cases, the middle tones are perfect to the notchand the remote control works flawlessly , they also fit on large size ( 3 included ) just the wayI want them for the gym and running."
_
"(more durable than the S4i's,wich lasted 8 months, V-moda's lasted 2 months, Sony lasted 6 months, for me)Microphone and controls also seem good."
_
"*The inline mic and controls work well for my ipod."

Music

Music:
"I can not beleive how good music sounds with these."
_
"Those who complain about these lacking bass probably have a combination of three problems: 1) They do not have a tight seal, 2) The music they are playing is not of good enough quality (i. e. over-compressed), or 3) Their audio configuration is prohibiting good translation of the music."
_
"Once that's been figured, then the music flows with a good amount of bass and clarity."
_
"The vocals are amazing, it is like hearing music for the first time."
_
"The quality on the akg is official and I recommend anyone who like to hear music for it really sounds like, should with no hesitation, buy these head phones."
_
"They sound great on movies and music 3D blurays, blurays, DVDs, CDs and MP3 CDs (which I make)."
_
"very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very good for listening music and iphone"

Price

Price:
"They are also extremely uncomfortable and just feel like an overall cheap product."
_
"Don't over analyze them - they go deep, highs are not perfect - but for the money - they kick serious butt over anything under $100 that I've heard - they have really big bass that surprised me - I've owned several pairs Ultimate Ears, Skull Candy Titan - bass monsters for my workouts at the gym where I blast SiriusXM on BPM - so you know they slam bass out - but not the very BEST quality bass - just a ton of it and in the gym or on my bike, that's perfectly cool."
_
"I gave them four stars because I feel like I got a great value getting them on sale; however I don't believe they are the best value at full price (139.00 currently)."
_
"Great for the price."
_
"But the sound quality was excellent, and so was the price."
_
"I think it is pretty good in this price."
_
"The color makes them easy to locate, the price more than reasonable."
_
"$20 or maybe $40... okay good buy but for the price i am very very un impressed."

Quality

Quality:
"i would say quality is GOOD but not exceptional."
_
"The headphones need to be really plugged to your ear to the average quality - otherwise sound will be horrible."
_
"the remote does not really work, the sound quality was not very good the fit is okay but nothing to write home about and when you first take them out of the package you think they are very cheep."
_
"Those who complain about these lacking bass probably have a combination of three problems: 1) They do not have a tight seal, 2) The music they are playing is not of good enough quality (i. e. over-compressed), or 3) Their audio configuration is prohibiting good translation of the music."
_
"But either these did not fit my ears properly (another negative quality, if true) or else they were not authentic QJ endorsed products, or else, I have no explanation for why they gave such poor quality sound."
_
"I am very disappointed, my ears are extremely valuable to me and I was hoping for the same quality I get from the AKG Q701's I use for referencing in the studio."
_
"Some of the best sound quality you can find."
_
"excelent quality!"
_
"Good sound quality."
_
"The quality is decent."
_
"The sound quality is very nice, but the ear phone still slides out of my ear off and on (main reason I bought this one as it looks more snugly), even I used the smallest plugs."

Response

Response:
"Bass response is great, though being an audiophile, I prefer headphones over earbuds and playing out of a device that isn't so limited (like my phone)."
_
"The AKG's also have really nice treble response, and I felt like I could better tell where instruments were placed."
_
"The Sennheiser's were noted in some reviews for their good bass response, but there really is no comparison to the AKG's."

Size

Size:
"That said, I probably have abnormally small ear canals."
_
"It would be perfect if AKG give extra sizes and fits of tips with these headphones and that's the biggest downside with the product!"
_
"Didn't really get a chance to test out the sound too much, but it sounded OK.. Like earbuds.. (I don't see the huge differences some of you all do) - Anyway, I have normal sized ears, and these were painfully uncomfortable, with any of the rubber sizes they give."
_
"The 3 sizes of ear cushions seal the earpieces comfortably into my ear canal."
_
"The size would not be so much as a problem if it were not for the plastic net feature on, the net has a rough edge on it making it very uncomfortable sitting in your ear at any angle."
_
"There's something so pleasant and sweet about how these fit in perfectly (different size silicon covers) and just deliver the best, most rich sound ever."
_
"It would be perfect if AKG give extra sizes and fits of tips with these headphones and that's the biggest downside with the product!"
_
"I had to use the small size, but even then they aren' t comfortable at all.7) I've used 3 sources."

Sound

Sound:
"Skull Candy in ear headphones might not sound as good as the Left Ear of this set of headphones, but at least they get a consistant sound in BOTH sides..."
_
"Decent sound, not a great fit for me."
_
"The headphones need to be really plugged to your ear to the average quality - otherwise sound will be horrible."
_
"the remote does not really work, the sound quality was not very good the fit is okay but nothing to write home about and when you first take them out of the package you think they are very cheep."
_
"I know, I know, that's how its supposed to sound unless you like the ridiculous effects that some earbuds use to accentuate highs and lows (which ruins the music in my opinion), but really, there is no warmth or pop to it."
_
"I can not beleive how good music sounds with these."
_
"Some of the best sound quality you can find."
_
"Good sound quality."
_
"Great sound and functionality."
_

_
"The sound is very good"

Treble

Treble:
"Before I bought AKG q350, I had seen many bad reviews regarding this earphone that the bass is lacking, cable too short, painful treble, and yada yada."
_
"These ear buds play the full sonic range (to my hearing limits-57 year old rock & roller) with sparkling clarity to the midrange and treble, but good bass."
_
"There is a lot of bass and treble which is great if the headphones were still functional."
_
"But, after close to 30 hours of burn-in, I'm actually pretty satisfied with the way they sound (whether this is from burn-in or my ears becoming adjusted to the slightly funky treble I can't verify, but either way I'm happy as it is)."
_
"The AKG's also have really nice treble response, and I felt like I could better tell where instruments were placed."

_
"They work really well with any gen iPod or SanDisk mp3 player, but beware using them with a converter for large stereo jacks."

_
"*The inline mic and controls work well for my ipod."
_
"So you could lock the iPod and put it in your pocket, then still be able to control the volume and playback."
