Summary: Not too comfortable, does not sound bad but I did not find it to excel in any area. I would never recommend these, especially when the Sennheiser MX170 is so capable for a similar price. AKG can and do better.
Summary: These are an excellent pair of in-ear mp3 phones. The sound has a very velvety, organic texture to it which I like very much. They represent the stereo field very well with a crispness and clarity you will not find easily elsewhere at this price point. If you are a hip-hop head or require booming bass from your phones then look elsewhere (most likely you'll need an on-ear solution), but i have to say i was pleasantly surprised by the thick and chunky low end presence.
Summary: The buds are very comfortable if you have large ears. I mean, really large. They sound good with a bit too much base and distorted treble. However, they are definatelly a worthy purchace for 4 pounds that i got it for.
Forget all the rest these are the best! (on a budget)

Summary: What can I say apart from WOW!!! I usually buy JVC gumy headphones as i thought they were - great value, good sound, comfy and very hard wearing! But these are amazing quality for the price.... unbelievable! Only downside for some people they might feel a little clumsy in the ear (my initial thought but soon I didn't notice them in). And I might add they don't look nowhere near as brown as the picture indicates.
Excerpt: Although these headphones are the entry level of the radius AKG Hi-fi, one might expect, this brand, a model somewhat more qualitative ... Let's be clear, the sound is not disastrous ... but really not great either! A quick tour of the specification of the beast: - Impedance: 32 Ohm - Sensitiv...
Angenehme Bässe, klare Mitten und brillante Höhen - einfach traumhaft

Summary: Der AKG K309 verfügt über ein sehr ausgewogenes Klangbild mit sanften Bässen, klaren Mitten und brillanten Höhen. Verarbeitung/Materialien sind auch gut. Wer mehr Bass braucht ist eventuell besser mit dem Sennheiser MX475 bedient, der ähnlich gut klingt und ähnlich gut verarbeitet ist, aber mit enorm kräftigen satten Bässen.
