The AKG K361 boasts better sound quality with a more accurate reproduction of music and a broader soundstage, offering an immersive experience suitable for studio-like listening or enjoying a wide variety of music genres. However, their lack of wireless and built-in controls may hinder convenience, and their lesser suitability for calls and meetings due to missing mic information indicates they might not be the best pick for office use .

Medium

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."

Headphone Check

Maike Paeßens | 2021
"If you are going to criticise the JLab Go Work, it would be for the cables, which are to some extent too short for their intended use, and for its rather harsh treble reproduction above moderate volume levels in music mode. However, the call quality during telephone calls and video conferences in voice mode via wireless and via cable is impeccable. This handy Bluetooth headset also scores points with its excellent battery life and support for multipoint connections."
