AKG Q350 review

It might have visual pizzazz but the AKG Q350 has sub-par sound Tested at £60

Our Verdict

Given the Quincy Jones connection, these in-ears are huge let-down


  • Light
  • good bass


  • Treble is coloured and coarse

People will definitely see you coming in these AKG headphones.

The luminous green cable sticks out a mile (although black and white are also available).

They’re light, even by in-ear standards and trying the three sizes of supplied tips ensures a snug fit. They’re also fitted with an in-line mic and volume control.

Being part of AKG’s Quincy Jones Signature Line, you’d think that sound quality would be up to a decent standard, but you’d be wrong.

They produce quite an attacking, powerful sound. Bass notes hit the listener with force, but higher frequencies sound seriously coloured and coarse.

There’s a real lack of refinement, which makes for an iffy listen.
