Key Info

Superior reference sound with phenomenal isolation for critical listening

Superior Sonic Performance

Accurate and pure. The AKG K872s are high-end reference headphones designed for professional-grade studio work. Perfect for mixing, mastering and recording, the K872s utilise premium-grade components to deliver exceptional audio fidelity. Every nuance of your sound is reproduced with phenomenal precision. Specially-engineered 53mm transducers coupled with powerful 1.5 Tesla magnet systems provide best-in-class headroom and ultra-accurate imaging. The voice coil boasts a dual-layer design with a copper-covered aluminium coil, delivering high sensitivity and exceptional impulse response. This results in an extended frequency range, ranging from 5Hz to 54kHz, allowing you to hear every subtle detail.

Exceptional Accuracy

The high-resolution audio that the headphones deliver is perfect for studio work. The wide frequency response delivers a broad range of program material in detail. The sound-sealing pad profile delivers superior isolation, eliminating outside noise so you can focus on your audio. The result is a transparent yet exceptionally accurate sound, giving you a clear and concise image of your what your music will sound like on an unbiased medium.

Optimised Closed-Back Design

The over-ear, closed-back design helps to minimise leakage from the headphones. This gives you a much clearer and more polished recording. Isolation is paramount when it comes to mixing and mastering, and the K872s provide this in abundance. As soon as you begin to play music through the headphones, you'll be able to enjoy a truly-inspiring listening experience. The resulting sound is clear and transparent with a powerful low-end, defined mids and crystal-clear highs.

Designed for Comfort

Every design aspect of the headphones has been meticulously monitored, setting a new benchmark for headphone performance. The comfortable design features an open-mesh headband and 3D-shaped slow-retention foam earcups for the perfect fit. The ear pads also help to minimise listening fatigue during longer sessions. Additionally, the headphones come complete with a low-profile carrying case and a slim, durable cable with a precision LEMO connector.
