AudioTechnology: AKG have extended its Perception Headphone series with three new models for “enthusiastic musicians and engineers”, which I guess doesn’t include musicians and engineers who just aren’t feeling up to it today–only kidding. All three models are of the kind that you won’t get too precious about how they’re treated by non-thinking studio clients-if you know what I mean. And they’ll handle the tough stuff anyway. The K44 Perception is an over-ear, semi-closed design suitable for project studios and home recording. The next step up, the K77 Perception is also an over-ear, semi-closed headphone. Both products include comfortable leatherette ear pads and a self-adjusting headband for extended wear and a 3-meter fixed, straight cable and convertible jack. The K99 Perception is a high-performance, over-ear, semi-open headphone with larger, 40mm speakers in its design. K99 Perception is still lightweight and has the self-adjusting headband and fixed cable. Since AKG is a part of the large Harman group and all its affiliated consumer and hi-fi products, then tracking down detailed info about these pro’ cans on the web isn’t easy, but www.akg.com is your best bet.
