The History Of AKG

AKG History

 

 

They've made microphones that work under water, headphones that work without wires and are responsible for some of the most legendary gear. The C12 (created in 1951) and ELA M251 captured the voice of some of the worlds biggest recording artists in the 50's and 60's while the AKG 414 (first model the C414 EB in 1971) has long been the microphone of choice at the BBC, entire bands, orchestras, lectures and debates have been broadcast using little else. In live venues their C1000 (introduced in 1986) is the "go to" condenser mic of choice for hundreds of live venues.

Similar boasts can be made of their headphones, popular in recording, live sound and for simply listening to great music. This is summed up in the near perfect form of the K812, a masterpiece of audio engineering that distils 65 years of excellence in one incredible pair of headphones.
