AKG are proud to announce new AKG by Tiesto headphone line

9th September '12

In an introduction that marries creative inspiration from the world's leading DJ with advanced audio and technical design from the world's preeminent headphone manufacturer, HARMAN today announces the “AKG by TIËSTO” range of headphones that feature tuning and styling directed by legendary DJ and producer TIËSTO. Comprising three high-performance professional-grade headphones, the TIËSTO Series will appeal to a broad range of end users, from studio engineers, to artists, fans and TIËSTO himself - whether in the studio, at a show or on the go.

The AKG by TIËSTO headphones are being announced globally during the PLASA show in London, UK. (HARMAN / Sound Technology Ltd stand 1-E-21)

With more than 350 million total views on YouTube, 12.8 million+ fans on Facebook and over 1.3 million followers on Twitter, TIËSTO is one of the most influential DJs in the world. His achievements have ranged from playing at the opening of the 2004 Olympics to an audience of billions, to Grammy® Award nominations and the coveted title of ‘Greatest DJ Of All Time', bestowed on him by Mixmag. As well as running his own label, Musical Freedom, TIËSTO is constantly travelling around the globe, playing over 250 shows a year to millions of fans.

“AKG is rooted in the passion for music at the same time as having a unique eye for design and style,” TIËSTO says. “Together we've created a line of headphones that are perfect for those who want the best quality of sound, but don't wish to compromise on style, whether you're looking to mix in the studio, perform live or even listen when you're on the move.”

The line of three headphones, K67 TIËSTO (High-Performance), K167 TIËSTO (Professional) and K267 TIËSTO (Reference) all provide users with a sound fitting for the global phenom, TIËSTO himself.

K67 TIËSTO's on-ear design is ideal for home recording, project studios, live sound and rehearsal applications, offering a high noise attenuation. The compact design delivers sound quality wherever necessary, even outdoors.

K167 TIËSTO is an over-ear, closed-back design for high comfort and maximum noise rejection. Suitable for multiple applications, from the stage to the studio, DJs and music enthusiasts will enjoy the stunning design and impressive sound quality, even in loud environments. Its 40mm driver allows for higher sound pressure levels, while its roadworthy design provides maximum reliability.

K267 TIËSTO offers an over-ear, closed-back design, with an oversized low resonance driver, providing a higher SPL, while still maintaining a matched low frequency bass response. Its user-adjustable bass boost keeps sound neutral or maximizes deeper sub-bass frequencies when prompted. With high-quality materials and superior workmanship, K267's sound quality raises the bar for the professional DJ with the best performance without compromise. K267's Dual Plug-In feature allows the user to attach the cable to either side for maximum comfort. In addition, each set boasts 3D-Axis folding mechanisms for optimum fitting and flat storage.

Hmm....  Is there a single example of a star-branded headphone that one could get excited about?

 

You never know though. Judgement duly reserved.

Hi Guys I have been reading rave reviews about comply forms was wondering if they might be a good fit for the AKG K3003. I have small ear currently using the smallest option that comes with the set. Which comply forms would be most suitable for me. Are there any other options available besides comply? Thanks in advance. 😃

I have these:

They attenuate the highs a bit but feel more comfortable than the stock silicone tips.

Heads-up for dutch people with a savings account at ING Bank, you can buy the AKG 3003 with rentepunten for €500,- + 50.000 rentepunten. Seems like a sweet deal.
