The K872 Master Reference Closed-Back Over-Ear Headphones from AKG feature custom 53mm drivers with 1.5 Tesla magnet systems that deliver precise imaging, deep low frequencies, and extended dynamic range. The optimized closed-back design ensures isolation during tracking, mixing and mastering sessions. The open-mesh headband and 3D-shaped slow-retention foam earcups create a personalized fit for good comfort during long sessions.

Optimized Closed-Back Design

The closed-back ear cups provide optimal isolation from external sound in critical monitoring applications. It delivers a pleasing listening experience while ensuring sensitive microphones and your recorded tracks will be free of headphone leakage.

Accurate Imaging and Powerful Sound

The drivers feature large 53mm transducers and powerful 1.5 Tesla magnet systems to ensure ample headroom and accurate imaging. The two-layer, copper-covered aluminum voice coil works with the special magnet design to deliver high sensitivity, good impulse response, and an extended frequency range of 5 Hz to 54 kHz.

Comfortable Fitting

The K872 combines the comfort of lightweight self-adjusting headband with a quick-lock mechanism that maintains the right shape for your head, so there's no need to readjust every time you use the headphones. 3D-shaped slow-retention ear cups provide a personalized fit.


All the mechanically critical parts are made of metal—from the precision cardan hinge to the headband. Details such as the trim ring around the ear cup provide a superior seal for the speaker plate.
