Here's what AKG say about the K872 Headphones
To deliver pure, powerful, ultra-detailed sound, the K872 utilises a 53 mm transducer—the largest AKG has ever built. This driver was developed from the highly acclaimed K812 transducer, and ensures highest in-class headroom and dynamic range. Each K872 transducer employs a 1.5 Tesla magnet system, the strongest available today, providing highly accurate imaging and pristine, natural sound.
The K872 features a high-sensitivity copper-covered aluminium voice coil that extends sound beyond the limits of the human auditory system, spanning a full spectrum of frequencies. The ultra-lightweight two-layer voice coil ensures a superior impulse response and an extended frequency range from 5 Hz to 54 kHz, while delivering the lowest distortion level in class.
The K872 is ideal for music production professionals seeking an accurate, transportable, highly detailed reference for critical monitoring in a range of recording, mixing and production applications. Live sound engineers will appreciate the high degree of isolation, detail and comfort that the K872 provides, which enhances their ability to focus on critical elements of the mix. Studio mixing and mastering professionals will benefit from the reference-quality audio K872 delivers in both studio and mobile production workflows. The headphones include a case that functions as both a headphone stand and a low-profile carrying bag that conveniently fits in a suitcase.
