If you prioritize comfort and listening quality for music and TV, the AKG K361 headphones are a solid choice, though they are not suitable for taking calls. They're wired, have a good build, and offer a nice soundstage, but can't be used wirelessly and lack a built-in microphone. On the other hand, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds are more versatile, offering a built-in mic and high performance for gaming. They're also portable and suitable for exercise, thanks to their wireless design and water resistance. If budget is a concern, the Razer earbuds tend to be less expensive. Give Feedback

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."

The Verge

Chris Welch | August 2019
"This latest set is more “Pro” than not in both looks and features: they offer active noise cancellation, a low-latency gaming mode, and have switched to a in-ear design with silicone tips. Just like many of the company’s laptops and gaming accessories, the 2021 Hammerhead True Wireless include Razer’s full Chroma RGB system. It makes for what Razer calls “the ultimate wireless earbud flex.”"
