STYLE, COMFORT, QUALITY
For recording sessions, studio and live mixing, rehearsal rooms
Your music rocks - make sure you hear every detail with the AKG K52 over-ear, closed back headphones. Professional-grade 40mm drivers reveal even the subtlest nuances, so you can be confident your mix will translate accurately on any system. Whether you’re monitoring vocals or tracking a bass line, the self-adjusting headband and lightweight design will provide hours of comfort. Designed by the company whose mics and headphones have helped create some of the world’s most iconic recordings, the durable K52 headphones deliver great sound wherever your music takes you.
CLEAR SOUND IN THE STUDIO AND BEYOND
Did your recording sound great at home but you regret playing it for your
friends in the car? If so, you need an accurate monitoring solution to
expose problems before you leave the studio. Our K52 headphones deliver
authoritative, extended low-frequency response that gives definition to
kick drums and bass guitars. At the same time, the detail yet precisely
balanced high-frequency response reveals the nuance in vocals, guitars and
acoustic instruments. The K52 headphones confirm your critical creative
decisions, so you know when your track’s ready for prime time.
Wondering how it’s possible to get such great sound from affordable headphones? When it comes to audio quality, driver size and weight are critical, especially in the lower frequencies. Our generous 40mm drivers deliver high sensitivity for powerful output, plus an extended frequency response that reveals every detail. The K52s also feature a low-impedance design for compatibility with a broad range of playback devices, from professional studio gear to portable music players. Our engineers leveraged their extensive expertise to optimise every single component - delivering a great set of headphones without compromise.
GET LOST IN YOUR SOUND
Whether you’re practicing or tracking, you need to focus and perform at
your best. The K52 headphones’ closed-back design eliminates audio leakage
and delivers sound to your ears only. You won’t hear the drummer drop his
sticks in the middle of tracking - and the mic won’t pick up the sound of
the click track in your headphones.
This exceptional level of audio isolation is due to a new acoustic chamber, which sits between the ear cup and the hinge that connects to the headband. Our innovative design gives you the freedom to move your head in any direction, without letting sound in or out. With the K52, you’ll enjoy a private workspace, no matter where you choose to create.
THE STYLE THAT FITS ALL
Nailing the perfect take sometimes means tracking the same part for hours -
and that’s where comfort really counts. We designed our unique
self-adjusting headband to automatically create the perfect fit for every
band member. No need to mess with delicate sizing mechanisms, which have
the potential to break over time.
The exposed headband design keeps the K52 headphones comfortably light, without compromising driver size. Breathable, lightweight ear pads encircle your ears, rather than putting pressure on them. And a single-sided cable gives you freedom to move. To sum it up, these high-performance headphones sound, feel and look great. Who says you can’t have it all?
PROFESSIONAL BUILD QUALITY
LONG LIVE THE MUSIC
AKG is known for making professional-grade gear that can stand the test of
time, and the K52 headphones are no exception. We put them through extreme
testing and abuse to ensure they’ll handle anything you throw at them: Our
regimen of drop-tests simulates exaggerated falls. 80,000 cable bend cycles
at both end points ensure the cable won’t break or underperform. And
intensive driver testing - a prolonged series of 3W bursts each half second
- means that the drivers won’t fail when you really need them.
Since ear pads are often the first components to show wear, we made them replaceable to protect your investment over time. With exceptional performance and elegant design to match, the K52 is built for pros.
