The K361 and K371 headphones combine studio-quality sound with a compact, foldable design, enabling creators to produce professional content in the studio or on the go.
HARMAN Professional Solutions, an audio, video, lighting and control systems provider, has announced new AKG K361 and K371 professional studio headphones.
K361 and K371 headphones combine studio-quality sound with a compact, foldable design, enabling creators to produce professional content in the studio or on the go.
The K361 and K371 headphones promise to bridge the gap between professional and lifestyle headphones for the next generation of content creators.
Commenting on the new offering, Chris Hansen, Director Recording & Broadcast, HARMAN Professional Solutions said: Content creation has broken out of the confines of the studio and creators need headphones that allow them to hear every detail of their work wherever they go.
AKG K361 and K371 headphones combine professional sound quality with the long-wearing comfort and portability of traditional consumer headphones, giving artists, engineers, podcasters, video editors or content producers the freedom and flexibility to create their best work anywhere.
K361 and K371 are AKGs first professional headphones to utilise a new oval earcup shape which simultaneously provides a suitable fit and frequency response by aligning with the geometry of the human head.
Both models are equipped with 50 mm drivers and oxygen-free copper voice coils promising clarity, detail and acoustic precision. K361 delivers detailed and balanced lows, mids and highs across their extended 15 Hz to 28 kHz frequency range, while K371 sport titanium coated diaphragms to deliver detail, with a 5 Hz to 40 kHz range.
The company states, the K371 headphones are tuned to AKGs Reference Response curve, “an acoustic target refined over nearly a decade of research outlining widespread hearing and listening preferences”.
The K361 and K371 have passed rigorous stress tests to ensure reliability in demanding conditions and K371 features metal-reinforced parts.
Over-ear, closed-back designs provide isolation in noisy environments, with slow-retention foam pads for long-wearing comfort and less low frequency leakage, along with and adjustable calibrated headbands that deliver a suitable fit.
Earcups swivel 90 degrees for single-ear monitoring, and their feather-light weight keeps ear fatigue at bay, even on the longest listening sessions. Both models include a protective carrying pouch and detachable cables for connecting to both professional and consumer equipment.
