AKG Launches Foldable Professional Headphone Range

HARMAN Professional Solutions has introduced a new range of completely foldable AKG professional headphones at the Prolight and Sound Show.

The new range offers professional sound quality to content creators, musicians, audiophiles and audio professionals on the go.

You can take headphones out of the studio…

…But you can’t take the studio out of these headphones. Professional recording studios around the world rely on AKG headphones every day for their clarity, accuracy and comfort. Our new professional foldable headphone line builds on our over 70-year legacy to bring that same studio-quality audio monitoring to artists, producers and content creators on the go.

Designed for superb accuracy at an accessible price point, K275, K245 and K175 headphones combine legendary AKG audio performance with extremely robust build quality and superior comfort for long listening sessions.

“Today’s musicians and content creators are frequently on the move - and need headphones that can stand up to their mobile lifestyle,” said Philipp Schuster, Product Line Manager, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “We’ve taken our legendary studio models and made them portable, with a foldable design that allows for easy transport."

These headphones represent the culmination of decades of refinement—from their transducers, to their porting, to their fit and finish. They offer best-in-class frequency response for unrivaled clarity and detail, largest-in-class transducers for detailed bass reproduction, and superior sensitivity and low impedance for maximum distortion-free output, even from low-power mobile devices.

Our innovative designs fold down tight to slip into your gig bag or carry-on; our patent-pending, three-axis hinge relies on metal core components for roadworthiness, and components are rigorously tested for durability. Adjustable headbands and slow-release foam ear cups provide a perfect fit and long-wearing comfort, every time.
