AKG Studio Headphones

In 1947, Dr. Rudolf Goerike and Ernst Pless, both of Austria, created a superior line of products used in clubs, theaters and radio stations. AKG started with a mere five workers assembling headphones by hand and blossomed into a leader in professional audio equipment.

AKG remained a favorite of professionals for decades. In 1980, AKG equipped the Moscow Olympics with digital equipment. This move introduced the world to AKG. Orders poured in for their quality headphones.

Since that day, AKG won its rightful place as a leading producer of audio equipment for professionals and consumers. They continue to develop state-of-the-art headphones adding new technology every day.

Highlights of AKG’s Headphones Development

Two years after their company launched, AKG created the K-50 headphones. This model introduced professionals to supra-aural construction. At the time, stars like Frank Sinatra became hooked on them.

Remember Eddie Murphy’s hit in 1986, “Party All the Time”? The headphones Eddie wore in the video were the AKG K-240s.

In 2003, AKG gained new ground when author Dan Brown highlighted the headphones in his best-selling book The Da Vinci Code. He went on to reference them in other works.
