To your questions: "1. Do you still work for AKG? If not, when did you stop working (approximately)?" I stopped working for AKG End 1989 and started at Philips sound solutions - later NXP and nowadays Knowles, busy with micro speakers for mobile devices.. "2. What do you think of the current AKG direction under HarmonKardon (for headphones)?" Sorry, no idea, I did not follow AKG because all my previous friends and colleagues left also and some went with me to Philips. "3. Are you still into headphones? What pairs do you own?" I'm owning the K1000 together with the BAP1000 as amp and the K240DF, and some inear headphone prototypes from Philips which we ccreated for Sony, Nokia, Apple, Rim and others. But Philips stopped that business after 5 years due to business reasons. "4. Were you involved at all with the K340. Those are certainly an interesting story in themselves as well." When the K340 was developed, it was approx. 1976, I was busy with dynamic microphones - the D 320 series - therefore I was involved in measurement issues with specific artificial ears only for the K340.
