AKG, one of the oldest headphone brands, does not stop innovating and designing for the ever changing preferences of the listening public. These days headphones are the in-thing for the young and upwardly mobile to show off their exquisite taste and design.
Not to be outdone by the latest trendy brand names like Beats by Dre, Skullcandy and Jay-Z , AKG ‘s latest range of headphones rose to the challenge with some cool designs that we hope do not sacrifice on AKG’s transparent and natural sound quality.
AKG has always made great looking headphones like the reference K702. But the new AKG K545, K845BT, and K323XS headphones set a new tone for AKG going forward. New colors are explored. The K545 has four color options – black, white, black/turquoise and black/orange. It has large 50mm drivers in a closed-back design with enhanced acoustic dampening. This allows it to deliver a full bodied and more controlled bass response. Frequency response is touted to range from 20Hz to 20kHz.
Building on their forward looking mantra, AKG also jumps into wireless designs with the K845BT Bluetooth headphones. The K845BT has the same internal drivers as the K545s, but add Bluetooth connectivity by way of NFC (short for Near-Field Communications) for one-touch pairing with your smartphones. iOS users can easily set up pairing with the K845BT. The leather ear cushions also house all the controls you need to play and navigate through your music library. The K845BTs will come in black or white. It is powered by a Lithium battery which provides up to 8-hours of usage and charged via a mini USB to USB charging cable.
The K323XS are in-ear headphones and come in four bright colors in addition to black and white, and each is available in single-button models with a microphone for Android users as well as a three-button control mic for track navigation and volume control on iOS devices. AKG recognizes the noise-isolating value of a well fitting ear-tip. The K323 will come with four sizes that will give you that comfort without the drawback of long-term ear fatigue.
