FRANKFURT, Germany – With the success of its K702 headphone line, HARMAN’s AKG proudly introduces the K612PRO reference class and K712PRO reference studio headphones at Prolight and Sound 2013. The Vienna-manufactured headphones with 2-layer diaphragm patented VarimotionTM technology provide exceptional imaging and distortion elimination.
The K612PRO is an open-back, circumaural dynamic headphone, delivering brilliant details for a full, spacious sound. The visual components of the self-adjusting glove-leather headband with aluminum arches and solid rivets not only provide a lightweight, maximum comfort fit, but also reinforce the quality AKG has provided the studio engineer for decades.
The K712PRO is the new top-of-the-line reference headphone, as the K702 aligns itself in the middle of the two new headphones. Its sophisticated open-back design, 3dB improved low-end performance, revolutionary flat wire voice coil and a detachable professional cable provide mastering and mixing professionals hours of fatigue-free work hours. K712PRO has a genuine soft leather headband for a lightweight and comfortable fit. Its pre-selected transducers provide consistency and accurate localization. K712PRO comes with an additional coiled cable and a premium carrying bag.
“With the addition of the K612PRO and K712PRO to our line of high quality and reliable reference headphones, AKG has a full-circle solution for any studio’s needs,” stated Thomas Stubics, Product Marketing Manager, Recording and Broadcast, AKG. “Whether mixing a track for a few hours or mastering an album overnight, the wearer will be able to work in comfort with perfect sound.”
