If you prioritize comfort and sound quality for music and TV but don't mind a wired connection and carrying larger headphones, the AKG K361 over-ear headphones would be a better choice. However, they lack a built-in microphone for calls and lack durability features like sweat and dust resistance. On the other hand, if you're looking for more affordability, the KZ ZSN Pro X earbuds offer good sound quality and portability for music on the go. They also have a detachable cable and are more exercise-friendly due to their smaller size and secure fit with ear hooks, but they don't have active noise canceling or wireless capabilities.

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."

Soundguys

Jasper Lastoria | April 2023
"The KZ ZSN PRO X offers superb sound for very little money, like under $30 USD. It has some rough edges with a plastic seam on the cable that can rub on your ear, and the bud is a bit large. The tech isn't cutting edge, but new doesn't always equal better. You should try it."
