AKG went into space

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

AKG went into orbit with bin-aural sound processing on board of the space station MIR. Wow I would like to hear those space hps.

 

I named those hps K240 SDF. (Space Diffusion Fields).

I've ask AKG for more info, looks like the K-240DF cup. The metal/aluminium material looks interesting, I hope is more light compare to the original 240DF hps.

Looks like an industrial-grade version of a K270/280 earcup:

AKG K 270 Studio

Given this milestone event is dated 1991, that makes sense.

 

Wonder what drivers are in there?

Maybe they will even get into production (my personal dream), I love the look of the metal cups. happy_face1.gif
