I'd sure like to know the history of the K1000? When was it first made? Who developed it? Were there predecessors? Is an upgrade in the works?

I think it originally was sold about 15 years ago. History of the K1000 seems pretty obscure. I couldn't find anything about it in a google search.
All I know is what is listed in the manual. It has a foward by Dr. Carl Poldy, AKG describing the theory behind the K1000's sound.

If you check the K 1000's service manual (PDF), you'll see that the document was issued in November, 1990.
If the service manual appeared shortly after the headphones themselves, then the K 1000 may have been around for as long as 15 years. (This is assuming that November, 1990, was the original issue date of that document.)

Well, I don't follow our arithmetic(unless by shortly you mean 23 months), but I do appreciate your sharing this link to the K1000 service manual.
