Audio specialist Harman International’s AKG brand has already made a name for itself in the professional audio realm for its microphones, headphones and wireless equipment. The company wants to bring that brand to consumers however, and it announced at Macworld Expo Tuesday that it planned to deliver a full lineup of consumer-focused headphones to the US.
That plan includes more than a dozen consumer headphone models—including ear buds, in-canal earphones, over-ear headphones and mini headphones—ranging in price from $17 to $300. The line is designed to address the needs of all music lovers, from the casual listener to the high-end audiophile.
Most models will come equipped with carrying cases and pouches for portable use, as well as ear foams, adjustable pads and/or head straps for optimal fit. All mini models, ear buds and in-canal earphones are iPhone-compatible.
