AKG Introduces K52, K72 and K92 Professional Headphones

AKG’s new professional headphones feature 40mm drivers that offer high sensitivity for greater output, wide frequency response and low impedance for compatibility with a wide range of gear — from professional audio components to portable music players.

AKG said the closed-back design features an acoustic chamber, which eliminates audio bleed and preserves privacy. An ergonomic, self-adjusting headband and over-ear design provide comfort during marathon listening sessions.

All three models weigh seven ounces, offsetting the inclusion of large, high-quality drivers. The K52, K72 and K92 models undergo extreme product testing including multiple two-meter drop tests, 80,000 bend cycle test for cables and a rigorous driver stress test.

The headphones’ earpads, often the first component to show signs of wear, are replaceable to maximise value and investment. With a frequency range of 18 Hz – 20 kHz, the K52 is ideal for listeners who demand detailed sound while monitoring, rehearsing or tracking.

The K72 features an extended frequency range of 16Hz – 20kHz. Additionally, the included screw-on ¼-inch plug adapts the same phones to professional gear. A longer three-meter cable provides versatility in pro studio applications.

The K92 leverages the benefits of the K72 while extending the high-frequency performance to 22 kHz. It also adds a gold-plated screw-on adapter plug to reduce the opportunity for oxidation and ensure top performance over time. These enhancements make the K92 the premium model for professional recording and monitoring applications.

“It takes a high degree of innovation and engineering focus to deliver this level of performance at these accessible price points,” said Peter Chaikin of Harman Professional’s Recording Solutions.
