If you prioritize lower cost and wireless features, the Earfun Wave Pro might be better as they offer excellent call quality, are great for TV and video due to low latency, have a much longer battery life, and come with active noise cancelling which makes them suitable for air travel and noisy environments. However, if you prefer wired headphones and value durability and sound quality for music listening in quiet environments, the AKG K361 could be a better fit despite being a bit pricier. The AKG K361 does not have a microphone, making it less suitable for calls or meetings. 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."
