K175 - On-ear, closed-back, foldable studio headphones Legendary AKG Studio sound and comfort with On-ear, closed back design. Best in class frequency response for unrivaled clarity and detail. Legendary AKG sonic performance Building on a 70-year legacy of continual design innovation, AKG delivers unmatched sound quality and comfort in this new family of Foldable Studio Headphones. The new K175 represents the culmination of decades of refinement—from the transducers, to the porting, to the fit and finish. You can take headphones out of the studio… …but you can’t take the studio out of these headphones. Now it’s even more convenient to take studio-quality sound with you. With the K175, it’s almost as if you were sitting in front of a pair of great reference monitors—transparent, defined, and uncolored. Their superior sensitivity and low impedance offer maximum output before distortion, so you can use them even when playing music on lower-powered mobile devices. You’ve never heard bass like this When you’re serious about editing and mixing your music, you’re looking for more than thumping bass in your headphones, you need nuanced low frequencies. The K175 offers 40mm transducers—the largest in their class—to create greater low-frequency extension and detailed bass reproduction. This makes it easy to define each and every instrument you’re hearing. Built to last After decades of the strictest product standards and most rigorous of testing regimens, quality has become synonymous with the AKG name - and these headphones are no exception. From intensive driver stress tests to an 80,000 bend cycle for cables and even an exaggerated drop test we put our headphone designs through the gauntlet, so you can count on them for years to come! All of the critical pieces are metal, including the hinge, guaranteeing they last through heavy use. Additionally the cable is replaceable further extending the life of your investment. Take the Studio with you With a completely foldable design made possible through an innovative three axis hinge the K175 can easily be collapsed. This means they are great for transporting in tight places like travel bags. The design minimizes the exposure to damage that comes with the demanding mobile lifestyles of musicians, producers and audio engineers. Make music in comfort No more tugging and pulling to adjust the fit of your headphones. The AKG 175 are the first foldable, studio-quality headphones in their classes to offer a self adjusting headband, floating ear cups and an innovative three axis hinge to provide you with an instant, all over perfect fit with every use. And they don't just fit well, they feel good. AKG Headphones have become a trusted studio ally over the years for their ability to be worn fatigue free for hours on sessions due to their light weight and comfortable slow retention foam ear pads.
