Does this have active noise cancellation technology built in? I ride a Harley with a very loud exhaust, at 85 mph (yes legal), I cannot hear the wind noise (110db) over my exhaust. Will this significantly reduce the wind and pipe noise?

Asked by: NatalieEGH
It may be legal but it's incredibly risky for you as well as any passenger and anyone else on the road.

The right channel has gone dead. I think this is because the cable was pulled loose. Is there any way to have this repaired or replaced?

Asked by: shorton99

Can the AKG 3003i headphones be used with a DAC/Amp, like the Chord Mojo or the DragonFly Red?

Asked by: Adrian
The K3003is are quite standard when it comes to connection and signal input. These new d/a converters with headphone amplifiers are usually equipped with one or two 3.5mm headphone sockets, and are meant to do this exact task, but with higher audio quality than a normal smartphone or hifi amplifier. So yes, the K3003i will work perfectly without any issue. Only exception is that if the DAC/Amp features balanced outputs only, for the real connoisseurs, it will not be able to accommodate a normal 3.5mm jack headphone.

Hi, how many hours are required for the earphones to burn in correctly?

Asked by: Mohil

Are these now being made from aluminium instead of stainless steel? Or is it just the color is listed as aluminium?
