AKG was first founded in 1947 as an establishment for "the manufacture of audio and film equipment" after working with theatres to provide high quality audio-visual gear. Within 3 years, the focus had securely moved to microphones and loudspeakers, and their big breakthrough came when creating the world's first high quality cardioid microphone, the D12 in 1950. Another groundbreaking microphone came in '53 with the C12, the first microphone with noiseless and seamless switchable polar pattern design. These products elevated AKG to the international stage, setting the standard for the era. AKG's continued their success with headphone design and their first major breakthrough came with the K50 headphones- the first superaural, openback, lightweight headphones with superior sound quality that was a major hit and formed the basis of AKGs development in this sector.
This innovation and desire for cutting edge technology has continued throughout AKG's history, with the legendary C414 in 1971 and receiving a Grammy Award in 2010 for it's services to the industry.
