AKG K3003

 

£1000 in-ear headphones made out of solid steel that can compete with the custom kings.

Superb sound, Superlative build quality

Non-removable cable, Treble is challenging at times, One sound filter excels above the rest

AKG K3003i

 

Stunningly agile, detailed sound, brilliant bass authority and precision, superb finish

The vast majority of portables aren’t good enough to do the AKGs justice

The AKG K3003i is the priciest pair of in-ears 'phones we’ve reviewed.

AKG K3003 – Is this the best universal IEM in the world?

 

When one uses the term 'best' it a pretty strong statement and in the world of snake oil producing audiophilia is a more common term than most so normally I treat the word 'best' with a degree of caution when putting on a headset, always mindful that...

Excellent reference IEM-similar signature to HD800

 

I had K3003i with a custom cable. I bough it used and the cable had been replaced and the seller assured not sound different to original I loved it. I used it with Fiio X3 2nd Gen. I liked the sound- very flat, great mids, highs and tight base. When...

very natural- if you like HD800 then this is it as IEM

To get the best out you need to pair with better

Truly excellent; a laser etched, yet involving, insight into the music

 

(edited note - for some reason I am giving these 10/10 for Audio Quality, but they are appearing as one notch less. Not sure why!) Introduction To begin, would like to explain a little about my self and what makes me "tick" as regards audio equipment....

Real reference transducers. Very rewarding and involving. Completely addictive and immersive. Clarity, separation, dynamics and response all excellent

Nothing worth mentioning

Very impressive IEM

 

This is the best IEM among all my gears! The sound is balanced and natural. A big CON is about its undetachable cable... I think switching to balanced output will make it sound even better, but simply cannot try it unless cutting the cable, which will...

Beautifully crafted, natural signature, wide soundstage, balanced sound

cable not detachable

Sound from Heaven.

 

AKG K3003 is an important milestone in the development of IEM. It's the first universal fit IEM that successfully combines dynamic driver and balance armature technology together. After owning them for 3 years, K3003 never fail to move me. K3003 is...

Beautifully crafted; outstanding isolation and comfort; easy to drive; natural signature.

cable are not detachable.

One Great sound

 

.

Overall sound, clarity, Very wide stage, fun yet balanced sound .

price, none detachable cable, cable above Y split, carrying case is bit small to fit it in, isolation is not as good as other IEM

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Great IEM

 

Treble: a little bit piercing, especially on IPC. However, if connet this with the Hifiman player like HM-602, HM-603 or HM-801, the treble would be bright but not piercing. Mid: clean and natural. Some might say it's lack of warmth, but with a warmth...

natural tune, full of detail, beautiful crafted

a little overprice
