Harman’s AKG brand is launching a new range of foldable studio headphones in June.

The K275, K245, and K175 headphones combine legendary AKG audio performance with robust build quality and 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. The new AKG K275, K245, and K175 headphones feature high-quality components that work in harmony to provide optimal fit and great sound—all in a durable form factor that will go the distance with you.”

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 40mm transducers. All three headphone models offer best-in-class frequency response, 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 for editing and mixing.

The line is expected to be available in June 2017 with pricing to be confirmed.
