REVIEW: Quincy Jones Q350 in-ear earphones

When it comes to pop music royalty, names don't come much bigger than that of Quincy Jones. From humble beginnings as a travelling jazz musician to the stratospheric success he garnered working with the late Michael Jackson, there are few more respected producers in modern music than Mr Jones. He's recently put his name to a new AKG audio line, and we've got our hands on a pair of Q350 in-ear earphones. Do they live up to their namesake's legendary reputation?

Sony's bluetooth wireless earphones would be great if they worked with iPods

$150 for a pair of earphones is very expensive. For some, it may be even more than their MP3 player is worth, so it’s certainly a big purchase. The quality of Sony earphones is undoubted, however, and the Sony DR-BT140QP earphones have one big difference from most others.

There’s something quite attractive about wireless earphones. No-one really needs them – a wire going between your ear and your pocket isn’t a particular inconvenience, but to go without it would be a nice luxury. You could turn your head sharply without one falling out, you could reach for something in your pocket without accidentally pulling the lead out, and missing that one bit of the song you really like. Actually, you could even put your MP3 player in your bag, while continuing to listen. The Bluetooth range is 10m, so there are surely exciting possibilites I’ve yet to imagine.
