K3003i Earphones with Mic and In-Line Controls
K3003 earphones provide you with one-of-a-kind personal sound-tuning capabilities. By changing the sound-tuning filters, you can adjust for three precise sound-output preferences directly into your ear. These adjustable, precision-machined mechanical filters allow for bass, mid or high frequencies to be modulated.
The K3003 earphones set a new benchmark in audio quality. By pioneering the hybrid of one dynamic and two balanced-armature drivers in each earphone, AKG engineers have created perfectly balanced 3-way earphones with ultralow distortion, accurate mids and crystal-clear highs.
The combination of dynamic bass and dual balanced-armature drivers gives the K3003s excellent audio performance as well as matchless mechanical design. Due to the positioning of the speakers (the dynamic driver is behind the dual balanced-armature driver), the K3003s don't need any additional frequency switches. The result: less potential interference.
How Does it Work?
Balanced armature (BA) drivers present high audio performance and acoustic efficiency for more sound from less power.
BA drivers, exquisitely crafted for the K3003s, are distinguished by the outstanding performance on midrange and high-frequency sounds.
Due to the diaphragm's high excursion level, the K3003s' dynamic drivers represent good bass quality and support the balanced-armature drivers for reference-quality audio.
