AKG K 172 HD

Overview

Our take on the AKG K 172 HD

Perfect for the professional DJ
These headphones feature a closed earcup design that's great for listening in noisy environments, like at a club or on a bus, where you need to hear your music with minimal sound leakage. AKG has been making high-quality headphones for music enthusiasts and professionals for over 60 years, and that experience really shows in the well-crafted K 172 HDs. 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.
