If sound quality and a larger soundstage are your top priorities, go for the AKG K361 headphones which offer better overall sound and are suitable for a wide range of content. However, these are wired and less portable, making them not ideal for exercise or travel. The Raycon Everyday Earbuds are more comfortable, portable, offer longer battery life, and are sweatproof, so they are a better choice for active users and those on the go, despite having good but lesser sound quality.

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."

Parker Hall | January 2023
"Sure, every influencer owns these buds. They’re still pretty good. In this price range, getting anything that seals well in your ears for good soundstage, doesn’t sound like trash, and won’t immediately break is a huge win. The Everyday Buds tick all of those boxes for me, and I intend to use them at least nearly every day; I go to the gym on alternating evenings. Damn it, YouTube. You've cost me good money again."
