AKG Acoustics debuted three new headphone models at the 2004 NAMM Convention. The AKG K 71, K 101 and K 301 XTRA models feature high-fidelity sound and light weight designs at prices that range from $70 to $130.

The semi-open, “feather-weight” K 71 is designed for use with portable audio devices, computers and utility applications. It features a full 20 to 20,000Hz frequency response, low 19-ohm impedance and weighs only 140 grams (five ounces).

The open-back, lightweight K 101 features a new computer-optimized MX20 transducer, has a wide 18 to 22,000Hz frequency response and features high 101dB sensitivity and low 19-ohm impedance for compatibility with low-output audio devices such as portable CD/MP3 players, notebook computers and keyboards. The K 101 weighs in at 160 grams (5.6 ounces).

The new K 301 XTRA features AKG’s new VariMotion XXL transducers. The K 301 XTRA delivers a frequency response of 18 Hz to 26 kHz, and has 55-ohm impedance and 102dB sensitivity. The K 301 XTRA allows for deep bass, transparent mids and well-defined highs.

All three new models feature oxygen-free cables and gold-plated plugs with 1/4-inch adaptors for input compatibility. All AKG headphones include a two-year parts-and-labor warranty.
