Our Verdict 
Affordable, but the AKGs don’t do enough to make themselves a no-brainer upgrade
For 
Cheap enough, comfortable, good tonal balance
Against 
Pretty much everything else
Reviewed on

When it comes to in-ear headphones, not every one likes a little bud burrowing into their ear.

These affordable AKGs simply nestle in your ear. The downside is that you aren't isolated from outside noise as well and bass notes aren't as taut or clear as they could be.

They're also not the final word in terms of dynamics or resolution, although the overall tonal balance is inoffensive enough.

This can't gloss over the fact that the 315s sound very average.
