Vienna, Austria (June 10, 2013)—Harman’s collaboration between AKG and popular DJ Tiesto, which resulted in a full line of Tiesto headphones, has earned the international Red Dot-label recognition for product design in 2013. Companies that accentuate excellent design and long-term quality with specific products are awarded this Red Dot symbol.
“Red Dot is synonymous with leading products in numerous industries and to have the AKG-by-Tiesto headphones marked with its symbol validates our position that our headphones provide an all-encompassing quality for the music industry,” commented Thomas Stubics, Product Marketing Manager, AKG.
The K267 Tiesto is based around an over-ear, closed-back design, with an oversized low resonance driver, reportedly providing a higher SPL, while still maintaining a matched low frequency bass response. Its user-adjustable bass boost keeps sound neutral or maximizes deeper sub-bass frequencies when prompted. K267’s Dual Plug-In feature allows the user to attach the cable to either side, and each set boasts 3D-Axis folding mechanisms for fitting and flat storage. The K167 Tiesto is also an over-ear, closed-back design and is suitable for multiple applications, from the stage to the studio, DJs and music enthusiasts. Its 40mm driver allows for higher sound pressure levels. The K67 Tiesto’s on-ear design is designed for a range of applications from live sound to studio work.
