AKG are pro sound specialists. They have spent years making some incredible microphones and headphones for every level of musician. The new K72 headphones are part of a new range focused on project studios and working musicians they may not have all the money in the world to spend on cans but do not want to compromise on quality.
Pro Grade Drivers
This is the core of what makes a good headphone. The driver is the little speaker inside the headphone and defines what it sounds like. at 40mm it is certainly on the larger side for cans at this price range but that means better detail, better clarity and a more accurate representation of what you are listening to.
16Hz-20kHz Frequency Range
The frequency range is what frequencies can be produced by the headphones and these have a surprisingly large range. From 16Hz which is extremely low, all the way up to 20kHz you will be able to hear every small element of your mix with incredible clarity. This again is thanks to those powerful 40mm drivers that can push a lot of air in a small space.
While open back headphones do have their place in the hi-fi and mixing world as they have incredible detail. But they leak noise terribly which is why a closed back design like this is so good for tracking, general listening and any work where you don't want the world to hear what is going through your headphones. Privacy at its best.
No More Adjusting
We have all had that pair of headphones that just never sits right on your head. The band is either too large or two small and never finds that right place that just hugs your head properly. That is why AKG came up with this self adjusting headband that fits itselves to your head instantly. No more adjusting as you change cans between band members.
Here's what AKG say about the K72 Headphones
Pro quality sound meets style and affordability with the AKG K72 over-ear, closed back headphones. Professional-grade 40mm drivers reveal even the subtlest nuances, so you can be confident your mix will translate accurately on any system. Whether you’re tracking the hook or mixing background harmonies, the self-adjusting headband and lightweight design will provide hours of comfort. Designed by the company whose mics and headphones have helped create some of the world’s most iconic recordings, the durable K72 headphones deliver great sound wherever your music takes you.
CLEAR SOUND IN THE STUDIO AND BEYOND
Did your recording sound great at home but you regret playing it for your friends in the car? If so, you need an accurate monitoring solution to expose problems before you leave the studio. Our K72 headphones deliver authoritative, extended low-frequency response that gives definition to kick drums and bass guitars. At the same time, the detailed yet precisely balanced high-frequency response reveals the nuance in vocals, guitars and acoustic instruments. The K72 headphones confirm your critical creative decisions, so you know when your track’s ready for prime time.
Wondering how it’s possible to get such great sound from affordable headphones? When it comes to audio quality, driver size and weight are critical, especially in the lower frequencies. Our generous 40mm drivers deliver high sensitivity for powerful output, plus an extended frequency response that reveals every detail. The K72s also feature a low-impedance design for compatibility with a broad range of playback devices, from professional studio gear to portable music players. Our engineers leveraged their extensive expertise to optimize every single component - delivering a great set of headphones without compromise.
PROFESSIONAL BUILD QUALITY
LONG LIVE THE MUSIC
AKG is known for making professional-grade gear that can stand the test of time, and the K72 headphones are no exception. We put them through extreme testing and abuse to ensure they’ll handle anything you throw at them: Our regimen of drop-tests simulates exaggerated falls. 80,000 cable bend cycles at both end points ensure the cable won’t break or underperform. And intensive driver testing - a prolonged series of 3W bursts every half second - means that the drivers won’t fail when you really need them.
Since ear pads are often the first components to show wear, we made them replaceable to protect your investment over time. With exceptional performance and elegant design to match, the K72 is built for pros.
