Our take on the AKG K 272 HD by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Hi-fi headphones for any application
AKG's top-of-the-line K 272 HD headphones provide exceptional performance whether you're relaxing with your tunes at home or working on tracks in the studio. A sealed earcup design means you can hear your music better in noisy environments, like at a club or in a busy office. These 'phones deliver outstanding sound thanks to their oversized speakers, housed in incredibly comfortable, around-the-ear earcups.
Cutting-edge technology ensures superb sound quality
AKG has been making high-quality headphones for music enthusiasts and professionals for over 60 years, and that experience really shows in the K 272 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.
Carefully designed inside and out
The K 272 HD comes with a self-adjusting headband and soft velvet around-the-ear earcups 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 AKG 272 HD headphones retro look, modern sound
"...they have the fit and comfort I desire and the sound quality I need to have when I'm listening to music I love. They are a very real sounding headphone. I wore them for a two-hour stretch without needing a seventh inning stretch. I could have worn them longer if I liked and listened to a lot more of my favorites with great contentment."
