The AKG K 340 is a pair of stereo in-canal bud headphones that can be used with a home stereo system, portable CD/DVD/MP3 player, or any other A/V player. It features over-sized earpieces that exert too much pressure on the ear, despite having three silicone ear tip sizes to choose from. In fact, both the silicone tips AND the cable wires were cheaply composed, which is an immediate point off towards durability. Signature to the 340 though is its inline volume slider, sturdy carrying case, and reinforced housing — which helps protect the plug from damage. Overall, the AKG K 340 performs well with high-end details, but is choppy in regards to bass, unstable in build, and lacking in comfort.
