Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

In-Ear
Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Acoustic Principle

The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:

Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source.

Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room.

Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
Volume Adjustment

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic:
Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic:
Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
28 ohms
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
120 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 24000 Hz
Audiophile
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Yes
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
No

AKG K374

February 27, 2015

With 100 Hrs of Burn in I can tell you these are FUN in ears. Definitely not for the faint of Heart. Very Efficient (Loud). Not exactly an audiophile caliber Headphone. Highs are subdued but NOT silibant, good Mids, But an insane amount of Bass. Not quite Beats Bass but a lot more than My Senn IE8s which are considered by many as Bass-Heavy. Great depth to the Soundstage which is somewhat narrow.

Like I said, If you just want to ROCK and ROLL, crank these puppies up. For the Money there aren't much better choices.

Nice earbuds

February 13, 2015

I owned an AKG K324p before, and in my opinion they are very similar regarding the sound quality. Which is great!
The AKG K374 however, are very nicely finished. The real metallic look is great, and probably will last.
The only problem is that they kind of hurt my Ears after long use. It is not a rubber problem, but more related to the metal touching my ear.

Great headphones!

January 22, 2015

These are probably the best headphones for audiophiles in their price range. The sound is outstanding, particularly when listened to from a computer using an external DAC such as the Meridian Explorer or Dragonfly. The portability is very good - they fold into a case - and the noise cancellation is excellent.

These are my first expensive earbuds. Before these I only used what came with my Galaxy series phonesand I had recently bought the Jlabs Q1M Boqari earbuds. They were ok, but the mids were too high and over all clarity was eh. I bought the K347 for about $60 off of ebay and what a great value. Really really good sound. Clear highs, good mids, and nice deep bass that doesnt overwhelm or over power other frequencies. The build is nice and sturdy feeling. I wish there was a mic on these but thats why theres the K375 series. Overall, these are good sounding earbuds at this price and feel sturdy enough to last. When and if you buy earbuds, make sure to break them in before you blast them. I plugged these into my laptop with the valume a little lower then half way and play music for about 2 days, give rest every 3-4 hours. I am happy with these :)
