Foldable studio headphones from Harman AKG’s brand have been released for on the go musicians and audio professionals. The new family comprises the K275, K245 and K175 models and is said to combine robust build quality and comfort for long listening sessions with an ‘accessible’ price point.
The K275 and K245 models feature 50mm transducers that reportedly provide great low-frequency extension and detailed bass reproduction. The K175, on the other hand, utilises an on-ear design with 40mm transducers. The manufacturer also claims that all three models are low impedance and posses the best frequency response and sensitivity for their class, resulting in a higher output before distortion even when playing back from lower-powered mobile devices. The K275 and K175 feature a closed-back design for live recording and monitoring, while K245 features a semi-open design suited for editing and mixing.
In addition to a foldable headband that features a three-axis hinge, the headphones have self-adjusting headbands and floating ear cups.
AKG has also unveiled a new microphone adapter for the Harman Connected PA system. Featuring embedded ioSYS technology, the portable MDAi CPA Connected PA microphone adapter is compatible with dynamic vocal mics from both AKG and other manufacturers. The company states that using the products is as easy as plugging the adaptor into any mic, as it automatically configures itself with the Harman Connected PA app and ecosystem. The benefits are quicker setup times and the ability to instant recall performer presets. Additional products with embedded ioSYS technology and Connected PA compatibility include the Soundcraft Ui24R mixer, JBL PRX800W loudspeakers, dbx Di1 direct boxes and AKG P5i microphones.
