So, for anyone who has used both of these nozzles, do you find there is a difference in how well they clean? The 340 does not have a height adjustment like the 360 does, so I would think the 360 would clean better, but for anyone who has used both, would love to know your thoughts.

I haven't used the 340 but I have the 360 in the form of the white Vacuflo Edge powerhead. It does an exceptional job cleaning all the carpeting and rugs in my house. I've never had a nozzle make the rug stand straight up! I actually think it performs better than the Volt powerhead I use with my Hide a Hose outlet. Best of all, it doesn't leave any of those awful rake lines that my Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away leaves on the carpet.

better than the volt?

Wow, I would think with the extra air flow that the volt would clean better than any other nozzle, interesting.

The Volt is good but maybe I got a dud? The EBK 360 definitely cleans better in my opinion.

EBK 340

I have EBK 340 and i really like, but I haven't used the 360.
It has almost all the features of the good PH. Surprisingly it also works well on the higher pile dense and soft shag rug. Not too hard to push and pull. However I assume that the 360 is better on that with it's height adjustment. No height adjustment on the 340 is my only gripe and maybe how heavy it is = build quality.
Swivel neck is good and no any "safety bars" on the soleplate.
