HARMAN’s AKG Relaunches HSC And HSD Headset With Automatic Mute Function, Reinventing Broadcast Communication During Musikmesse

With a continued focus on improving the quality of performance in professional audio/video markets, HARMAN’s AKG has unveiled the latest additions to its professional headset line at Musikmesse – the condenser microphone models HSC 171 and HSC 271 and dynamic microphone lines HSD 171 and HSD 271. Ideal for broadcast engineers, sports and news commentators, voice over and recording artists, the latest line meets the high demand for efficient and reliable equipment in the industry with seasoned AKG ingenuity. All four headsets are on exhibit at Musikmesse 2011 at Hall 8.0, Stand 32.

“HARMAN’s AKG HSC and HSD headsets incorporate features that have been directly requested by professional users, and offer excellent comfort, optimum ambient noise reduction and outstanding audio quality,? said Thomas Stubics, product marketing manager – recording and broadcast, AKG. “We’ve designed the HSC and HSD’s with comfort and usability in mind and each set will offer reliable service across the board.?

All four models have a closed-back earpiece design for high ambient noise attenuation and signal isolation. The HSC 271 and HSD 271 are circum-aural (full-size) and the HSC 171 and HSD 171 are supra-aural (on ear) designs. All have a detachable cable – if a cable becomes defective under the stress of day-to-day use, it can be quickly replaced without any tools.

Each headset has a flexible microphone arm that moves through a 270-degree arc and automatically mutes the mic as it’s moved up, eliminating the need for a mute button. The HSC 271 and HSD 271 also feature automatic headphone muting. The microphone can be worn to the left or the right of the wearer’s mouth, and the microphone is shock mounted to attenuate mechanical noise and protect the capsule from damage.

All the headsets are compatible with a choice of optional available cables and connector types, for use in the studio, broadcast booth or on the field, with consoles, computers, camcorders, intercoms or other devices.

The HSC 271, HSC 171, HSD 271 and HSD 171 all come with a windscreen and an additional pair of velvet ear pads.

The headsets are currently available at the following suggested retail prices: HSC 271, $249; HSC 171, $229; HSD 271, $249; HSD 171, $229.
