The New AKG by TIËSTO Headphones
The new AKG by TIËSTO headphones enable you to monitor your music comfortably in noisy environments, whether you’re mixing in a club or just casually listening as you walk down the street. They feature a 3-axis folding design that makes them easier to travel with, and durable aluminum or reinforced polymer construction that will stand up to everyday use. TIËSTO is a popular DJ and music producer from the Netherlands, and AKG is one of the most respected manufacturers of headphones in the pro audio industry. Together they’ve created a new range of headphones that provide premium sound quality for music fans, audio engineers and DJs.
The new K267 TIËSTO is the flagship model of the AKG by TIËSTO line. Its low frequency 50mm drivers supply full sound with deep bass. There are three different response settings that can be adjusted directly on the ear cup: Studio, Club and Stage. The Studio setting provides a more flat frequency response, while the Club and Stage settings provide increased bass response to suit larger and larger performance venues. All of the TIËSTO headphones come with a gold-plated ¼” adapter that screws into place, and a single wire that provides sound for both earcups. What’s really interesting about the K267 is that the wire can be attached to either side of the headphones, so it can adapt to different people’s workflows. Plus, the cable is coiled so it won’t get in the way if you’re close to the audio source. The K267 also features premium aluminum construction and a comfortable padded headband.
Featuring a similar industrial design to the flagship model, the K167 TIËSTO headphones offer earcups that completely cover your ears. The closed-back nature of these headphones does a good job of rejecting ambient noise, so you can concentrate on the details of your mix. The 40mm drivers provide accurate sound quality worthy of the AKG name, and the XRP glass-fiber reinforced polymer construction helps them stand up to the constant use that music lovers exert on their headphones.
The K67 TIËSTO is a slightly more compact version of the K167. The ear cups are “supra-aural,” meaning that they rest on your ears, rather than cover the ears completely. Even though the ear cups are smaller, they house the same large 40mm drivers that are found in the K167, and they have the same XRP glass-fiber reinforced polymer construction quality as well. Like the other headphones in this series, the K67 features closed-back ear cups to keep external noise attenuated, and they fold flat for easy travelling.
