AKG K872 Master Reference Headphones
The culmination of almost 70 years of expertise, the AKG K872 master reference closed-back headphones provide unprecedented accuracy and comfort in production and live sound engineering environments.
Custom 53mm drivers with 1.5 Tesla magnet systems deliver exceptional headroom for precise imaging, deep low frequencies and extended dynamic range. The optimised closed-back design ensures excellent isolation during tracking, mixing and mastering sessions.
The open-mesh headband and 3D-shaped slow-retention foam earcups create a personalised fit for remarkable comfort during long sessions.
Created with meticulous attention to every design element and component, the K872 is the new benchmark for headphone performance.
Superior reference sound
All components are meticulously crafted and work in concert to deliver superior performance and an impressive listening experience.
We engineered the drivers using large 53mm transducers and powerful 1.5 Tesla magnet systems to ensure greatest-in-class headroom and accurate imaging. The two-layer, copper-covered aluminium voice coil works with the special magnet design to deliver high sensitivity, superior impulse response, and an extended frequency range of 5Hz–54kHz.
Optimised closed-back design
The newly designed, closed-back ear cups provide optimal isolation from external sound in critical monitoring applications.
Want to record a magical performance?
Worn by your recording performer, K872 delivers a most inspiring listening experience while ensuring sensitive microphones and your recorded tracks will be free of headphone “leakage.”
Precision accuracy and performance
When designing K872, we challenged ourselves to create the highest-quality, most accurate reference headphones ever built. You can depend on the AKG K872 to reveal all the detail in a broad range of program material and today’s high-resolution formats.
Whether you are recording, mixing, mastering or creating a soundtrack, the AKG K872 sets a new benchmark for performance.
