"If performance is more important than budget and you need to spend long hours editing in a noisy environment, recording sound on location, or making critical decisions about audio without disturbing others, the K872s should be right at the top of your shortlist." 'Sound On Sound'. Tested at £1099.

Precision Accuracy and Performance

When designing K872, AKG challenged themselves to create the highest-quality, most accurate reference headphones ever built. You can depend on the 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, K872 sets a new benchmark for performance.

Optimized 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."

Remarkable Comfort
Over 50 years ago, AKG invented the self-adjusting headband, which quickly became a headphone industry standard. K872 combines the comfort of our legendary lightweight self-adjusting headband with a new quick-lock mechanism that maintains the right shape for your head, so there's no need to readjust every time you use the headphones. 3D-shaped slow-retention ear cups provide an exceptional personalized fit and comfort.

Long-Lasting Durability
Every rugged component of the K872 is stress-tested by AKG's engineers to ensure premium AKG performance wherever you go. All the mechanically critical parts are made of metal-from the precision cardan hinge to the headband. Details such as the trim ring around the ear cup serve to provide a superior seal for the speaker plate. The K872 is an industry-leading reference headphone that's built to last.

Modern mobility
Supporting today's mobile laptop production work flow, the K872 master reference headphones are your portable mixing, mastering and monitoring reference on the go. The K872 includes a low-profile carrying case that doubles as a stand-so your master reference headphones are protected during travel. And the slim yet durable cable with precision LEMO connector is easily detached for added transportability.
