3-Way Hybrid Technology: The AKG K3003i in-ear earphones set a new
benchmark in audio quality. By pioneering the hybrid of one dynamic and two
balanced-armature drivers in each earphone, AKG engineers have created perfectly
balanced 3-way earphones with ultra low distortion, accurate mids, and
crystal-clear highs. The combination of dynamic bass and dual balanced-armature
drivers gives the K3003is excellent audio performance as well as matchless
mechanical design. Due to the positioning of the speakers (the dynamic driver is
behind the dual balanced-armature driver), the K3003i doesn't need any additional
frequency switches. The result is less potential interference.
Balanced-Armature Drivers: Balanced armature (BA) drivers
present high audio performance and acoustic efficiency for more sound from less
power. BA drivers, exquisitely crafted for the K3003is, are distinguished by the
outstanding performance on midrange and high-frequency sounds. Due to the
diaphragm's high excursion level, the K3003i's dynamic drivers represent good
bass quality and support the balanced-armature drivers for reference-quality
Stainless Steel Housing: The housing of the K3003i is
chiseled out of one piece of brushed stainless steel. This robust housing not
only protects the earphone body from scratches, but also safeguards the K3003i's inner workings
from physical damage. The K3003i's stainless-steel housing is robustly durable,
timeless in appearance and easy to maintain, and it quickly adapts to your body
for comfortable use indoors or outside.
Personalized Sound: The K3003i earphones provide you with one-of-a-kind
personal sound-tuning capabilities. By changing the sound-tuning filters, you
can adjust for three precise sound-output preferences directly into your ear.
These adjustable, precision-machined mechanical filters allow for bass, mid, or
high frequencies to be modulated. To change the filters for your preference
simply screw on the filter of your choice (Bass Boost, Reference Sound, or
In-Line Remote + Mic: The AKG K3003i earphones feature and
in-line remote + mic that is designed for use with your Apple iPod, iPhone, or
iPad. The K3003i's remote control can receive
or terminate phone calls, skip and pause music, and control the volume of your
sound. And its stainless-steel skin gives the remote long life, endurance, and
scratch resistance. Apple device compatibility as of 8/16/2012:
