AKG K812 overview

  • 1Description

The K812 from AKG is an over-ear, reference quality headphone that, with its extended frequency response, is perfect for mixing, mastering, and audio production. Various enhancements are included that allow the headphone to deliver high headroom and dynamic range, detailed imaging and excellent impulse response.

An air-flow dome provides control over the membrane movement for reproducing dynamics that other headphones might not handle, and the 1.5 Tesla magnet system offers highly accurate imaging. The large 53 mm transducer and the two-layer, copper-covered aluminum voice coil provide managed modal behavior, superior impulse response, and a frequency response up to 54 kHz.

For added comfort and optimum sealing of the ear pads, the headphone employs all-metal cardanic hinges on each side. The nine foot cable is detachable and replaceable, as are the ear pads.

    AKG K812 reviews

    K812 - Reference Headphones (Over-Ear) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best TOTL Open Dynamic Headphones I have auditioned a lot of the current TOTL headphones on the market. In that price range, AKG K812 is the headphone to sought after if you want something that is very pure, very revealing, while at the same time very holographic and very musical. Great for both engineers and audiophiles, though some audiophiles will crave for a balanced option. One small con is that, as it is so revealing, you will not want to listen to your poorly mastered tracks anymore. Also, in some days when you want a soft and mellow sound for your ears, these headphones will sound a bit too sharp and too tizzy. The reason why I only give 4 stars to the durability is because the screws near the ear cup of the headphone will loosen or tighten on normal use. Though they can be readjusted using a simple screwdriver, this is something not desirable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again and recommend it to anyone These headphones are exactly what I was looking for when I purchased them almost 30 days ago. Basically I like everything about them: The sound is perfect for what I do in the studio, that is a sound and video editing very clear and transparent with a lot of detail. I think these are the best headphones I have ever owned. The AKG K812 headphones are very comfortable, well/solid built, and easy to adjust while on your head. I also like very much a stand that comes with these headphones. I purchase the headphones with the AKG HP4E 4-Channel Headphone Amplifier - all works great!
