AKG has launched three new new pairs of foldable studio headphones at the Prolight + Sound, the AKG K275, K245, and K175.
The K275 and K245 models feature largest-in-class 50mm transducers that provide greater low-frequency extension and detailed bass reproduction, while the K175 utilises an on-ear design with 40mm transducers. AKG says all three headphone models offer best-in-class frequency response: ‘… for unrivalled clarity and detail, making it easier to create mixes that translate well across different playback systems. And with best-in-class sensitivity and low impedance, the headphones deliver maximum output before distortion, even when playing music from lower-powered mobile devices.’
AKG K275, K245, and K175 are the first headphones in their class to offer a foldable design and self-adjusting headband. The foldable design allows the headphones to fit into smaller spaces such as travel bags, while also protecting the structural parts from damage. The self-adjusting headband and floating ear cups increase comfort by ensuring the headphones fit correctly with every use. Slow retention foam ear pads provide a comfortable, secure fit that ensures optimal bass extension and prevents sound from leaking out into the surrounding environment.
AKG K275 and K175 feature a closed-back design for live recording and monitoring, while K245 features a semi-open design that is well-suited for editing and mixing.
The new models will be available in June with pricing to be confirmed.
