Over 50 years ago, AKG invented the self-adjusting headband, which quickly became a headphone industry standard. K872 combines the comfort of our legendary lightweight self-adjusting headband with a new quick-lock mechanism that maintains the right shape for your head, so there‚Äôs no need to readjust every time you use the headphones. 3D-shaped slow-retention ear cups provide an exceptional personalized fit and comfort.
Every rugged component of the K872 is stress-tested by our engineers to ensure premium AKG performance wherever you go. All the mechanically critical parts are made of metal‚Äîfrom the precision cardan hinge to the headband. Details such as the trim ring around the ear cup serve to provide a superior seal for the speaker plate. The K872 is an industry-leading reference headphone that‚Äôs built to last.¬†
Supporting today‚Äôs mobile laptop production work flow, the K872 master reference headphones are your portable mixing, mastering and monitoring reference on the go. The K872 includes a low-profile carrying case that doubles as a stand‚Äîso your master reference headphones are protected during travel. And the slim yet durable cable with precision LEMO¬Æ connector is easily detached for added transportability.
