AKG K3003 – The Sound of Luxury

Thanks to the cool folks from IMS Marketing Pte Ltd, the sole distributor of AKG and many other audio brands in Singapore, I got to try out the AKG K3003 earphones last week.

What’s so special about this pair of earphones?

The K3003 are handcrafted in Austria and 100% quality-tested. It is the world’s smallest true 3-way reference-quality earphones. Each earphone housing is chiseled from one piece of brushed stainless steel, while specially refined cable materials allow for tangle-free handling. [Download K3003 Full Specifications]

I tested it watching Spartacus: Blood and Sand and also listening to a mixture of pop and rock tunes on my Macbook. I am not an audiophile, but even I could tell the vast difference in sound quality between the AKG K3003 and the normal under S$50 headphones I was using.
