AKG has announced the K361 and K371 professional studio headphones which use a new oval earcup shape that simultaneously provides a more comfortable fit and better frequency response by better aligning with the geometry of the human head.
AKG said the K361 and K371 headphones combine studio-quality sound with a compact, foldable design. Both models are equipped with 50mm drivers and oxygen-free copper voice coils for enhanced clarity, detail and acoustic precision.
The K361 delivers clear, detailed and balanced lows, mids and highs across their extended 15 Hz to 28 kHz frequency range, while the K371 has titanium coated diaphragms to deliver more detail, with a 5 Hz to 40 kHz range. In addition, the K371 models are tuned to AKG’s Reference Response curve, an acoustic target refined over nearly a decade of research outlining widespread hearing and listening preferences. The result is the most accurate, neutral sound.
The K361 and K371 have passed rigorous stress tests to ensure reliability in the most demanding conditions and the K371 features metal-reinforced parts for extra durability.
Over-ear, closed-back designs provide superior isolation in noisy environments, with plush slow-retention foam pads for long-wearing comfort and less low frequency leakage, along with an adjustable calibrated headband that deliver a consistently good fit.
Earcups swivel 90 degrees for single-ear monitoring, and their light weight lowers ear fatigue, even on the longest listening sessions. Both models include a protective carrying pouch and detachable cables for connecting to both professional and consumer equipment.
