AKG K275, K245, and K175 headphones deliver unmatched sound quality thanks to a refined design based on over 70 years of AKG research and development. The K275 and K245 models feature largest-in-class 50mm transducers that provide greater low-frequency extension and detailed bass reproduction. K175 utilises an on-ear design with largest-in-class, 40mm transducers. 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. All models feature best-in-class sensitivity and low impedance, delivering maximum output before distortion, even when playing music from lower-powered mobile devices.

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.

AKG foldable headphones extend the legacy of quality that has become synonymous with AKG. All critical parts of the design are metal, including the hinge. An extensive product testing regimen, including extreme drop tests, an 80,000-bend-cycle test for cables and a rigorous driver stress test, ensures that the headphones will last through heavy use. Additionally, the cable is replaceable to maximise value and investment.
