AKG K361 and K371 Professional Studio Headphones

Posted on: Friday 19th of July 2019

K361 and K371 headphones combine “studio-quality sound” with a compact, foldable design the intention is for these headphones to bridge the gap between professional and lifestyle headphones for the next generation of content creators.

“Content creation has broken out of the confines of the studio and creators need headphones that allow them to hear every detail of their work wherever they go,” said Chris Hansen, Director Recording & Broadcast, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “AKG K361 and K371 headphones combine professional sound quality with the long-wearing comfort and portability of traditional consumer headphones, giving artists, engineers, podcasters, video editors or content producers the freedom and flexibility to create their best work anywhere.”

K361 and K371 are AKG’s first professional headphones to utilise a new oval ear-cup shape which AKG say simultaneously provides a more comfortable fit and better frequency response by better aligning with the geometry of the human head.  Both models are equipped with 50 mm drivers and pure oxygen-free copper voice coils . K361 delivers a claimed 15Hz-28kHz frequency range, while K371 sport titanium coated diaphragms to deliver more detail, with a stunning claimed 5Hz-40kHz range.

In addition, K371 headphones are  tuned to AKG’s Reference Response curve, an acoustic target refined “over nearly a decade of research outlining widespread hearing and listening preferences”. AKG say the  result is the most accurate, neutral sound, no matter what users are listening to or where their mixes were created.

Ear-cups swivel 90 degrees for single-ear monitoring, and their light weight keeps ear fatigue at bay. Both models include a protective a carrying pouch and detachable cables for connecting to both professional and consumer equipment. AKG K371 ($149) and K361 ($99) professional studio headphones are now shipping .
