If you prefer a lower price and need a pair of headphones that are easier to transport due to their foldable design, the AKG K361 is a good choice. However, the Beyerdynamic 770 Pro offers better overall sound quality and comfort, which might make them worth the extra cost if you prioritize these aspects, especially for extended listening sessions. Neither of these headphones have built-in microphones or active noise cancelling, but both are suitable for wired listening with good noise isolation. Keep in mind, the Beyerdynamic is a bit heavier and less portable due to its larger size and non-foldable design. Give Feedback

Alex Rowe | November 2019
"The K361 retains much of what makes the K371 such a winner, though it has a leaner sound, and the build changes made to trim the price down are immediately apparent. Still, it’s another excellent offering from AKG, and other companies in this fight should either be very worried or quickly designing updates to their old models."

"Altogether, when you consider its accessible price tag, the performance, the build, and its outstanding comfort, I think that the DT770 Pro is fantastic option for anyone looking for a closed-back headphone in the sub-$1,000 range, and I can confidently give it a strong recommendation."
