    Key Features

    When it comes to audio quality, driver size and weight are critical, especially in the lower frequencies. Generous 40mm drivers deliver high sensitivity for powerful output, plus an extended, balanced frequency response that reveals every detail of the mix without artifically coloring the sound.

    Build Quality
    Like all AKG products, the K52 Headphones are put through stringent mechanical, electric, and acoustic tests to ensure that they will stand up to a lifetime of use. With metal construction and replacable earpads, your investment will be protected for years to come. Additionally, the construction provides an exceptional level of audio isolation due to a new acoustic chamber, 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.

    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.

    The K52s feature a low-impedance design and included 3.5 mm (1/8-inch)-to-6.3 mm (1/4-inch) adapter for compatibility with a broad range of playback devices, from professional studio gear to portable music players. Our engineers leveraged their extensive expertise to optimize every single component— delivering a great set of headphones without compromise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value but some plug-fit issues These cans are excellent value for the sound quality, comfortable to wear and seem well enough made for the price. The cable terminates in a 3.5mm TRS jack but comes with a fitted 1/4" plug adaptor. One issue I've found is that because of the wide/flat shape at the base of the plug it may not make good contact with some devices. I've had trouble getting a reliable connection with my Sony phone (and impossible when it's in a gel case), also with my Dell laptop headphone socket and some small electronic instruments. Consider this a 1/4" headphone system with an emergency 3.5mm capability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones I bought these about 4 months ago and I am very happy with my purchase! I wear them mainly with my laptop and the sound quality and comfort of the headphones are fantastic quality for the price. I also wear glasses and they fit comfortably with them. The cord is pretty long though but I just tie a loop to keep it shorter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable Headphones. I purchased a set of these headphones about a month ago. As a presenter in a community radio station,headphones are of great importance to me. Over the many years I have worked in radio I have tried numerous brands of phones and have not been able to get a set which combines the comfort and sound quality I have been seeking until I purchased the AKG 52s. Lo and behold after many years of fruitless searching my patience has finally been rewarded These are a superb set of headphones easily the best I have used in the last 16 years. From now on it's AKG for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality at budget price Bought these after a recommendation. Produced by Harman who make JBL so I thought I couldnt go wrong. Not disappointed, they look good, decent sound clarity. Worth the low cost, take a punt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Sound quality is excellent. Good clarity and detail. Closed back design provides decent isolation suitable for tracking and some mixing. They compare well to studio headphones costing many times the price. Very little to fault.
