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.
