AKG K245 Over-Ear Open-Back Foldable Studio Headphones
AKG K245 Over-Ear Open-Back Foldable Studio Headphones are the culmination of the last 70 years from AKG. A name that has become synonymous with quality and their K245 Open-back Foldable Headphones are a credit to their namesake. Every critical component of these cans is made of durable metal. All-metal hinges, combined with a self-adjusting headband, offer a comfortable and secure fit, putting a premium on acoustic isolation throughout its lifespan. Many supra-aural headphones do not provide comfort or isolation, but the AKG K245 aims to be the exception, rather than the rule. They’re designed to withstand everything from being packed in your travel bag to being dropped onstage. The K245’s over-ear foam pads feel good during even the longest sessions, and their massive 50mm transducers express every sonic nuance, even at low frequencies and the K245 headphones’ unique 3-axis hinge makes them a cinch to fold up for life on the road.
Made for the studio; ready for the road
The AKG K245 Closed-back Foldable Headphones deliver the acoustic performance you’d expect from high-end stereo monitoring cans. Featuring 50mm transducers, they offer superior low-end frequency response and bandwidth from 15Hz – 25kHz, so you can hear every detail of your audio. These are open-backed headphones, providing a sonic experience that’s much less claustrophobic when compared to that of a closed-back model. This open-back design makes them perfect for live mixing, monitoring, and DJ applications; their self-adjusting headband is hassle-free, and their over-ear foam pads are comfortable for long gigs. Plus, the K245 headphones’ 3-axis metal hinge withstands the rigors of travel and allows them to be folded up to be packed safely in your gig bag.
Designed to give you a transparent, articulated, and uncolored sound, these headphones are suitable for use in studio-reference applications.
The K245 offers 50mm transducers to provide both low-frequency extension and nuanced, detailed bass reproduction, giving you an articulated bottom-end response.
AKG is known for the durability of its headphones—and this pair aims to deliver the same long-lasting construction. Intensive driver stress tests, exaggerated drop tests, and more have been employed to ensure these headphones will stand up to studio use. Many critical components are fashioned from metal—including the hinge. Additionally, the cable is replaceable, further extending the life of these headphones.
Portable, Collapsible Design
With its three-axis hinge, the K245 can easily be collapsed and transported in tight spaces—for instance, its included travel bag. The design minimizes the exposure to damage that comes with the mobile lifestyles of musicians, producers, and audio engineers.
