How much would you pay for a pair of in-ear headphones? £50? £150?
How about £1,000?
That’s the asking price for the latest luxury pair from AKG, the K3003 in-ear headphones. They were on show at IFA 2011, and while they were hidden away behind glass meaning we couldn’t get a chance to hear them in action, we did get a chance to catch them on camera and grab those all-important specs.
What constitues the £1,000 price tag then? For a start, AKG are claiming that these are the first truly 3-way buds, with separate high, mid and low units, giving a full-bodied sound that AKG claim will match the detail of a high-end Hi-Fi system.
You’re also able to customise the out-of-the-box sound by attaching one of three packaged noise filters, letting you boost bass, high frequencies, or opt for the reference levels AKG tailor. Likewise, numerous interchangeable silicone earbuds are included to ensure maximum in-ear comfort.
