SoundMag - - News -

AKG is ex­pand­ing its Stu­dio on-the-go se­ries with high-end ear­phones, the AKG N5005 which the com­pany says is en­gi­neered with four ex­change­able sound fil­ters to en­able cus­tomised sound, al­low­ing for fine-tun­ing their lis­ten­ing at­mos­phere ac­cord­ing to per­sonal taste.

These ear­phones are priced at a US$999.99 so when they hit the Aussie mar­ket ex­pect the price to be over the 1K mark. The ear­phones are scratch re­sis­tant and come with a Blue­tooth don­gle out­fit­ted with a 3-but­ton re­mote and mi­cro­phone for phone calls. The ear­phones are de­signed to last 8 hours.

AKG says the N5005 flaunts its acous­tic ex­per­tise by de­liv­er­ing pure stu­dio qual­ity sound. Based on re­search with Au­dio En­gi­neer­ing So­ci­ety, AKG found that a tar­geted sound curve and fre­quency re­sponse is linked di­rectly to op­ti­mal sound qual­ity and lis­tener pref­er­ence.

The ear­phones are cer­ti­fied for Hi-Res Au­dio by the Japan Au­dio So­ci­ety, the N5005 is en­hanced with AKG-patented sound fil­ters tech­nol­ogy. The Hi-Res Au­dio Sup­port means the user can en­joy the sub­tlest nu­ances of stu­dio-qual­ity sound in higher-than-CD qual­ity res­o­lu­tion.

Jes­sica Gar­vey, Vice Pres­i­dent, Head­phones and Wear­ables, Life­style Au­dio Divi­sion at HAR­MAN says, “The AKG N5005 em­bod­ies AKG’s leg­endary stu­dio sound and stun­ning de­sign for to­day’s so­phis­ti­cated lis­ten­ers and au­dio­philes. Ex­cel­lence is in the de­tails with this head­phone, as it’s able to re­pro­duce the same au­dio qual­ity artists and sound en­gi­neers achieve in the record­ing stu­dio, while con­ve­niently con­nect­ing users to the mu­sic source of their choice.”

AKG says the hy­brid of One Dy­namic and Quad BA Driv­ers cre­ate a per­fectly bal­anced 5-way in-ear ear­phone with ul­tra-low dis­tor­tion, ac­cu­rate mids and crys­tal-clear highs. Users have the op­tion to in­crease bass, lin­ear sound and boost a song’s highs ac­cord­ing to their per­sonal pref­er­ence.
