AKG has joined forces with Tiesto, possibly the most well-known trance/techno DJ, to release a line of headphones aptly named ‘AKG by Tiesto’. More details below!
There will be three different models that will all launch in June: the K67, K167, and K267. The K67 will be an IEM, and my prediction (after reading Tiesto’s quote below) is that the K167 will be a portable on-ear set and the K267 will be a full-size over-ear set.
“As a DJ and producer, my aim is to always give my fans a breathtaking audio experience that they’ll never forget. I decided to join forces with AKG as they understand that giving the best possible sound reproduction is key to this experience. AKG are rooted in the passion for music at the same time as having a unique eye for design and style. Together we’ve created a line of headphones that are perfect for those who want the best quality of sound, but don’t wish to compromise on style, whether you’re looking to mix in the studio, perform live or even listen when you’re on the move.” -Tiesto
