AKG said the K361-BT and K371-BT model headphones are ideal for engineers who want the flexibility of wired or wireless connectivity combined with studio-quality sound.

The K361-BT and K371-BT feature an over-ear, closed-back design that is designed to reproduce natural, balanced audio in exceptional detail, so users can make more confident decisions when mixing and editing. Frequency response is 15 Hz to 28 kHz in the K361-BT and 5 Hz to 40 kHz in the K371-BT.

Both models offer switchable Bluetooth wireless and wired connectivity, with a built-in microphone for two-way Bluetooth communication. Plush, ergonomic earcups cradle the listener’s ears to provide hours of uninterrupted, comfortable enjoyment.

The K361-BT and K371-BT professional headphones feature high-sensitivity, largest-in-class 50mm drivers and pure oxygen-free copper voice coils to deliver clear, detailed and balanced lows, mids and highs. The latest generation Bluetooth 5.0 technology offers up to 40 hours of wire-free listening between charges.

The hybrid wired/Bluetooth design allows users to reference their mixes in a variety of listening scenarios, while an integrated microphone enables hands-free phone calls.

An over-ear, closed-back design provides superior isolation in noisy environments while minimizing low-end leakage. Additionally, the headphones are intentionally styled with ergonomic plush, slow-retention foam pads for long-wearing comfort, with adjustable calibrated headbands that deliver a perfect fit, every time.

Accessories for the K361-BT and K371-BT include a carrying pouch and detachable cables; 3m (9.8') and 1.2m (3.9’) straight audio cables, a 1M (3.3’) USB charging cable and a 3.5mm (1/8”) to 6.5mm (1/4”) adapter.

The K361-BT and the K371-BT are both now available.
