Enjoy detailed sound at home or in the studio
These headphones deliver the kind of detail you need for critical listening on a home hi-fi system or in a recording studio. They use AKG's patented Varimotion technology, which allows for greater motion of the speakers' diaphragms to produce powerful, crystal-clear sound. No matter what type of music you listen to, these 'phones will deliver sparkling highs, engaging mids, and dynamic bass.
Carefully designed inside and out
The K 142 HD comes with a self-adjusting headband and soft velvet earcup padding for a comfortable fit. The single-sided oxygen-free copper cable supports a clean signal from the source to your ears, and comes with a convertible headphone plug that works with both mini- and full-sized jacks.
From the review
Back to school with AKG headphones -- but which pair?
"I was really impressed at how well they blocked out noise I haven't always found on-ear models to be as effective in that arena. I especially liked the 142s, because the design allows the earcup to swivel a little bit.,."
