I own a set of AKG K240 Studio headphones and the K318 earbuds are actually pretty close to the same sound signature for a pair of earbuds. I was mightily impressed when I put them in my ears (without the foam) and hit play on a track on my Sansa Fuze. As soon as I put the foam on I knew I had to write a five star review.
With the foam on these have a very full sound. Mind you, I'm a musician who's going to be majoring in Sound Engineering (recording) in the fall so I'm not talking about having buckets of bass; I'm saying these earbuds have a very *balanced* sound. They have EXCELLENT mids. I'm a guy who loves his mids (I play electric guitar so I in fact ADORE my mids) and these definitely give. Electric guitars sound good from bands like Jesus Culture and Bethel to Between the Buried and Me and August Burns Red. The mids are present but not in any way bloated or overbearing. They're as close to perfect as I expect anything outside the ear that isn't a full-size headphone to have.
The treble is a little more than I'd like but I suspect that is because they are earbuds. Then again, my K240 headphones are only a little better, so it may just be the mix, too. Yes, these $30 earbuds are just a little harder to listen to than my $100 headphones. As I said, these are REALLY good.
The low end is actually pretty impressive coming from earbuds if you ask me (which you are since you are reading MY review). It's actually just right for my liking. It's present like salt: adding flavor but not dominating. (Not like McDonald's bass. Dominating and overbearing.) If you're a casual listener who's a bass-head or you listen to dubstep or something like it, I'd suggest different earbuds since you won't be happy with these. On the other hand, these are pretty balanced so you'll be hearing pretty close to the sound you'd hear on full-size headphones. With the foam pads on if you like PROPER bass (not bloated) then you should be happy. I know I am.
So basically in summary the sound is very balanced for a cheapish pair of out-of-the-ear earbuds. In fact, I'd go so far as saying it's perfect for my liking. Since I will only listen to music on these, not record anything or do any critical listening, then these are more than acceptable. Heck: perfect. The price is perfect as well. You can't beat this sound for 30 bucks. I wish my Audio Technica in-ear headphones (ATH-CLR-100) sounded like this.
I can't say anything about the microphone or remote quality since I can't use the remote anyway (I don't use Apple products. I hate them.) and I haven't really used the microphone much. It sounded acceptable in my quick test in Audacity when I unboxed them. My primary purpose for these is listening
Build quality feels alright. The outer-casing, the one facing away from your ear, feels a little cheap, but not like it would break easily. The inside-plastic (the one facing your ear) feels pretty good. The area around the drivers feels real nice and looks even nicer. The cable is pretty rubbery and feels durable enough. If you're harsh on it, my guess would be it would break, but I'm not terribly harsh on my cables (besides a few accidental cable yanks and jerks that scare me) so I think it will last at least a year or more. There isn't a ton of memory but it isn't memory-free. The jack is pretty good. It's gold-plated which is always nice. The strain relief right at the jack feels pretty nice, although the cable seems to be lacking any real strain relief at the base of the earbuds themselves. It isn't a round cable that goes into two. As in it's like two of the cables coming from the earbuds running together up until it splits. Some people like those cables, some don't. In summary, the build quality is acceptable but could be better. It's definitely not terrible, that's for sure.
In summary these are excellent earbuds for musicians and others who like a generally balanced sound signature in a non-in-ear device that doesn't isolate you from your surroundings. As a bonus, they come with a mic so if you need one it gives. If not, you don't have to use it. They work with regular MP3 players as well as phones. The remote does not work with Android, it only works with Apple products. If that's important to you, be warned. (At least the volume buttons. I didn't try the middle one.) The sound is perfect for earbuds of this price point (and much higher) and the build quality is fine.... And it says AKG on it so it must be good. Right? Right.
The build quality on these AKGs leave much to be desired as well. The description is a bit of a misnomer-these do not perform well for folks with average-smaller ears. Best save your loot for another AKG product.
3/5 for design and comfort: Design is pretty cool, the volume/play button work well and are easy to grab and the clicky mechanism seems to be made well. Cord length is good. For non-intrusive buds they seem to rest light and easily in my ears, but that's almost a defect - the "good" sound from the buds is only coming through when you jam them into your ears.
4/5 for price: At a price of about thirty USD, it's almost worth it, but I would recommend you spend an extra 30 and get something with higher quality sound if it exists in that price range. If you need a cheapie back up pair of earbuds, then these will do, but I'm not sure how much better these really compared to a 10 dollar pair of other non-intrusive or in-ear buds.
The sound is fuller compared to other headphones I've had and the bass is quite good.
The microphone is awesome, it isolates background noise very efficiently and allows a very clear handsfree conversation.
The control buttons (volume control & answer/play/pause) are very handy too.
A few minor issues:
1) The ear buds are a little larger than the average size you'll find on headphones.
Therefore they don't sit very securely in my medium sized ears and tend to fall out if I'm walking to briskly.
2) The control buttons operate with iphones only. In my older AKG K314 the volume control worked with all devices.
Overall I'm very pleased with this product.
