Las Vegas, NV (April 28, 2006)--At NAB this week, AKG Acoustics announced its new HSC and HSD series professional headsets, based on AKG's premium headphone and microphone technology. According to AKG, these application-optimized headsets meet the demanding requirements of a broadcast environment, delivering exceptional audio quality, ease of use and noise-free communication.

HSC models combine a shock-mounted cardioid condenser microphone with the TEC Award-winning K 271 Studio circum-aural or the K 171 Studio supra-aural headphones. HSD models include a shock-mounted hypercardioid dynamic microphone paired with the same award-winning K 271 Studio and K 171 Studio headphones.

The HSC 271 combines comfortable closed-back around-the-ear K 271 Studio headphones and a shock-mounted condenser microphone with detailed studio-quality sound. The HSD 271 has a dynamic microphone with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for use in high-noise environments that maintains excellent intelligibility. As its name implies, the HSD 271 Single has a single earpiece, allowing the user to hear natural environmental sounds while wearing the headset.

Designed for professional broadcast, intercom, recording, post-production and other professional applications, the HSC and HSD headsets feature microphone boom arms that swivel 270 degrees for left or right-hand use without modification. HSC 271 and HSD 271 models have an auto-mute function that silences the headphones automatically when the headset is taken off.
