AKG's flagship reference headphone is pure and natural sounding—perfect for detailed listening during mixing, mastering and music production.

Designed for music professionals, the K812 studio headphones empower listeners to experience the smallest sonic details with the most accurate balance for mixing, mastering as well as music production.

The 53 mm transducer, the largest AKG has ever built, was developed to get as close as possible to sonic perfection. During the development process, AKG developed the transducer to ensure the highest in-class headroom and dynamic range. 

With a 1.5 Tesla magnet system, the K812 delivers highly accurate imaging, while the copper-covered aluminum voice coil extends sound beyond the limits of human hearing, broadcasting a full spectrum of frequencies up to 54 kHz. 


  • Clear, accurate sound for fine-tuning sonic details
  • Broadcasts extended frequency range up to 54 kHz
  • Large 53mm transducer for ample headroom and dynamic range
  • A strong magnet system provides precise and powerful imaging
  • Enjoy extended listening with a comfortable fit and soft open mesh headband
