AKG K 316 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Great Product, Short Life
I have to rate these earphones as unsatisfactory since I needed them to last more than 6 months.
Pros: These earphones worked well and fit nicely. I liked being able to adjust the volume w/o having to find the player's volume control and I liked the clip to fasten and control the cords.
Cons: However, after about 6 months of use instead of being stereo earphones they became mono because the right earphone stopped working. That was, of course, quite annoying.
Great Product, Great Price
I received these as a gift to use when working out. I am surprised how well they fit and
stayed put without feeling too tight or irritating. Now, they are earphones, so the
important factor is sound. Wow. I am older, so let's be clear... Even though I enjoy
music, the dynamic range of most products exceed my ears' capabilities. Now, given
that caveat, these earphones provide crisp, clean, clear highs, and a surprisingly full
bass. Have not seen any of the quality issues with construction. They came with soft
pad covers for each earbud, but I have been using them without the pads with no
problems or discomfort. I would certainly recommend these to others, especially at this
Probem with Ear Bud
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have only been using the headphones for two weeks. Yesterday, the silver cover on the ear bud speaker just fell off. It does not seem to go back on, and without it, the ear bud is very uncomfortable in my ear. Very disappointing, because the headphones have good sound and stay on your head.
