AKG is an Austrian-based electronics manufacturer offering many varied headphone models. When the AKG K701 was released way back in 2005, our Headphone.com team was astounded at the audio results. “The new standard” we declaimed, and still today many top audiophile headphones remain compared to the venerable K701. AKG has improved on their design with the K712 and their flagship K812. A historic audio company with 100 years of in-depth engineering and sound research, AKG offers mini, in-ear, portable, reference and studio headphones in over 140 countries worldwide. Headphone.com is a proud authorized vendor for all our AKG lines since 1995.
