New Pro Studio Headphones All The Buzz At CES, NAMM


LAS VEGAS — Making its debut at both CES 2020 and in Anaheim at the NAMM show are a line of new professional studio headphones that many Consumer Electronics Show attendees — including FOX Business anchor Liz Claman — are buzzing about.

The headphones from HARMAN, the AKG K361-BT and K371-BT, feature Bluetooth connectivity. This makes them ideal for engineers, podcasters and all who desire the flexibility of wired or wireless connectivity combined with studio-quality sound.

The K361-BT and K371-BT feature an over-ear, closed-back design that can reproduce natural, balanced audio. A frequency response of 15 Hz to 28 kHz in the K361-BT and 5 Hz to 40 kHz in the K371-BT can be found.

Chris Hansen, Director Recording and Content Creation at HARMAN, said, “With class-leading frequency responses, Bluetooth connectivity and ergonomic, foldable design, K361-BT and K371-BT headphones are the perfect reference headphones for today’s mobile creative lifestyles.”

K361-BT and K371-BT professional headphones feature high-sensitivity, 50mm drivers and pure oxygen-free copper voice coils. The hybrid wired/Bluetooth design allows users to reference their mixes in a variety of listening scenarios, while an integrated microphone enables hands-free phone calls.

An over-ear, closed-back design provides isolation in noisy environments while minimizing low-end leakage. Additionally, the headphones are intentionally styled with ergonomic plush, slow-retention foam pads for long-wearing comfort, with adjustable calibrated headbands.

Accessories for the K361-BT and K371-BT include a carrying pouch and versatile detachable cables; 3m (9.8′) and 1.2m (3.9’) straight audio cables, a 1M (3.3’) USB charging cable, and a 3.5mm (1/8”) to 6.5mm (1/4”) adapter.

The AKG K361-BT ($161.25 U.S. MSRP) and AKG K371-BT ($223.75 U.S. MSRP)
