AKG K142HD Full Size Headphones, Silver

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

AKG’s K142 HD semi-open headphones deliver powerful, undistorted sound even at the highest listening levels.

Rugged enough for professional environments and comfortable enough for hours of continuous use, K142 HD features extra-large speakers with Varimotion diaphragms for higher sensitivity and a wider dynamic range. Hear the music the way your favourite artist intended it to be heard.

It’s On-ear, semi-open design helps to free the music, preventing sound from being trapped within the headphones. A self-adjusting headband will comfortably conform to your head and gimbal-suspended phones settle against ears without pinching. The ear pads are made from an ultra-soft velvet and its single-sided, 99.99% oxygen-free cable allows for pure sound transmission. They also feature hard gold-plated contacts and plug with a 3.5/6.3mm adapter.

About AKG

Founded in 1947 by a Viennese scientist and an engineer, AKG is one of the 21st Century’s emblems of good sound. Rudolf Goerike and Ernst Pless had the company’s first headphones in radio stations, theatres and jazz clubs within months, then broke the consumer market in the early fifties with several stunning products. They created completely new tech such as the high quality condenser D12 microphone.

After decades of non-stop innovation that even won them an endorsement from Frank Sinatra, AKG joined Harman International in 1994. Now an established worldwide brand, they produce studio-quality headphones with nearly 60 years worth of passion going into the builds. This popular brand provided sound for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, scooped the Austrian Export Award in 2008 and continues to serve up extraordinary acoustic products.
