AKG Provides Top Class Products For Young Talents At The Annual AES Student Competition In Amsterdam
Underscoring its commitment to engineering education and reaffirming its support of the Audio Engineering Society (AES), AKG provided two of the top performing students in the 2008 Annual Student Competition of the AES Convention with microphones and headphones as prizes for their academic achievement. The 2008 competition, held last month at the 124th Convention in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, featured the largest number of student participants to date.
Two top performing students were issued a pair of AKG K271 Mk2 headphones and an AKG C 214 microphone for their accomplishments. David Schwager, of The University of Applied Sciences in Dusseldorf, was granted an AKG C 214 microphone for Non-Classical Surround, while Marcin Szwajcer of the Wroclaw University of Technology, received a pair of AKG K271 Mk2 headphones for finishing second at AES for World/Folk music.
Thomas Stubics, Product Manager for recording and broadcast at AKG, stated, “Young talent is the lifeblood of our community. It drives innovation and creativity and brings new perspectives to complement experienced engineers. At AKG, we believe it is critical to support young talent in every way that we can and so we are pleased to award AKG products to the winners.â?
AKG K271 Mk2 are dynamic, around-ear, closed-back headphones that are designed for playback recording and live monitoring applications. Offering a stage blue color and superior performance, the K271 Mk2 is also equipped with an additional five meters of coiled cable, comfortable leatherette and velvet ear pads.
AKGâs brand new C214 microphone captures sound using a one-inch diaphragm with patented Edge-Terminated Back Plate Technology providing wide frequency response. Additionally, the microphone offers a â20 dB Attenuation pad, 13 dB noise floor, and a low cut switch-all in an elegant but rugged package. Additional features include an integrated suspension, a double mesh grill, and a switchable low cut filter.
