Vienna 1947 – Start of a success story

Radio stations, theatres, jazz clubs: microphones from the Austrian manufacturer quickly made the rounds in the middle of the last century, and the first headphones were released as early as 1949. In addition to Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic, the Viennese dominated the prospering market of radio and television almost at will. AKG has belonged to the Harman Group since the mid-1990s and has also held its own in this illustrious group of companies with flying colours.

Editor's recommendations: AKG

The AKG K701’s beautifully linear frequency response range allows the finer details of audio pieces to really shine with crystal clarity. With its impressive spatial character and nuanced reproduction, not to mention high accuracy when it comes to sound localisation, these reference studio headphones are particularly suitable for listening to things like acoustic pieces with first class dynamics and a diverse stereo environment. This is made all the more possible thanks to a comfortable design, which staves off unwanted pressure and fatigue for hours at a time.

Chic, sophisticated design, and innovative handling in combination with good Bluetooth functionality, comprehensive features, high wearing comfort, a neutral-balanced sound and all at a reasonable price – with the K371-BT, AKG has succeeded in creating an all-round trouble-free headphone package. A solid all-rounder, recommended for use in the recording studio, at a computer workstation, as well as for private music enjoyment – optionally wired or wireless.
