AKG Debuts K 702 Headphones For Recording And Broadcast Applications

Las Vegas, Nevada – AKG Acoustics introduced its new K 702 dynamic headphones today at InfoComm ‘08. The new K 702 headphones combine the superior sonic performance of AKG’s now-legendary K 701 with features demanded by recording and broadcast engineers in a deluxe professional package.

The K 702’s new features include a detachable input cable with a locking 3-pin mini-XLR connector. The high-performance, low-loss detachable cable makes transportation and storage easier plus makes servicing easy if necessary. The new K 702’s also feature a stage blue finish that is more rugged and professional looking than the K 701’s gloss white color.

“The K 701s are extremely successful, critically-acclaimed and much loved as personal monitors for audiophile listening? explained Sonja Malzer, Product Manager, AKG. “We’re now offering the K 702s for professional applications with features and appearance more suited for serious audio engineers who want and need the utmost in sonic detail for their work.?

The K 701 and the new K 702 are the world’s first headphones with flat-wire voice coils for unparalleled signal-tracking accuracy. Their patented Laminate Varimotion diaphragms eliminates spurious resonances and deliver an engaging listening experience with out-of-head imaging so that engineers can hear all the nuances of their sound. The K 702 is also very comfortable to wear during long studio sessions thanks to its buttery-soft, glove-leather headband and ergonomically-shaped, velour-covered ear pads.

The AKG K 701 and K 702 are hand-assembled at AKG’s facility in Vienna, Austria. Each headphone is carefully tested and serialized ensuring a product of exceptional quality. “Above all else, the new K 702 sounds exceptional!? Sonja Malzer continued. “Now studio engineers can get closer to their music thanks to these incredible, leading-edge headphones.?
