Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • K371 are one of the least expensive over-ear headphones from AKG, an excellent choice for someone who wants to try a pair of studio-oriented professional headphones
  • The AKG K371 has been tuned by following Harman's Reference Response curve, giving the bass and treble a slight bump
  • Intended for audiophiles or musicians, the AKG K371 Studio Headphones have an exceptionally flat, neutral sound profile with tight and punchy bass, a pleasant warm mid-range and controlled treble for clear, balanced vocals and instruments
  • They leak very little sound and do not distract those around you, even at high volumes
  • Oval shaped ear pads provide impressive passive noise isolation for a noisy environment
  • Can be easily folded into a more compact format and is very convenient to carry around
  • The ear pads are completely removable and easy to replace if worn in the long run
  • Battery-free design provides unlimited playback, just plug in and listen
  • Due to wired connection, there is no latency when watching video or game content

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • The ear cups are a little smaller than the regular over-ear headphones and may not be very comfortable for people with large ears
  • Not recommended for people wearing glasses, a fall in the bass may occur due to the lack of decent seal
  • AKG K371 Headphones are not suitable for running or exercising due to their unstable fit and can easily fall off the ears
  • Some users may feel uncomfortable during long listening sessions due to shallow ear pads
  • The construction is completely plastic and for the price, they lack the high-quality finish
  • No on-board or in-line microphone to make phone calls
  • There are no in-line controls, you need to take out your phone or music player to adjust the volume or skip tracks
  • Included cloth pouch protects against scratches and slight damage to water, but not against falls and impact
  • No dedicated app to control music, volume or create a personal listening experience

Highlights

  • Sleek, sturdy and comfortable design that stands up to your mobile lifestyle
  • The over-ear closed back design offers superior sound isolation, better low-frequency response and ergonomic fit
  • Designed to match AKG's reference response curve acoustic target for accurate and neutral sound
  • The largest 50mm transducers in its class with pure OFC voice coils
  • Higher sensitivity (114 dB SPL/V -1kHz) and impedance (32 ohm) for use with both professional and consumer devices
  • One of the best frequency response in its category: 5 Hz to 40 kHz
  • Calibrated headbands with slow-retention foam ear pads offer precise fit and superior comfort
  • Included 3m (9.8’) coiled cable, 3m (9.8') and 1.2m (2.5’) straight cables and a ¼-inch adapter
