AKG Acoustics introduced its new K 301 XTRA at AES 2003. The K 301 XTRA is a semi-open, large-diaphragm headphone that provides audiophile-grade sound due to technology developed by AKG’s acoustics engineers.

The K 301 XTRA offers significant improvements in sonic performance over its predecessor, the K 301, due in large part to AKG’s patented VariMotion XXL transducer. The VariMotion XXL transducers deliver high-sensitivity, low-impedance and high unit-to-unit performance. In addition, the K 301 XTRA provides deep bass, transparent mids and extremely well-defined highs. Its frequency response is 18 Hz to 26 kHz, its sensitivity 102 dB and its output impedance is 55 ohms. The K 301 XTRA can be used in professional studios and in high-quality home-entertainment systems. With this higher sensitivity and lower impedance, it can be used with low-output audio devices like CD players, computers and MP3 players.

The K 301 XTRA headphones have the same ruggedness and comfortable fit as other AKG headphones. The self-adjusting leather headband takes the weight of the headphones off the user’s ears and the circumaural, semi-open ear cup design ensures a comfortable fit. The ear pads are easy to replace and washable. The steel-frame construction is highly durable and stands up to years of fine listening. Other features include a single-sided, oxygen-free cable for excellent audio quality and a hard gold-plated mini jack with screw-on 1-inch adapter.

The K 301 XTRA comes with a SRP of $130. For more, visit www.akgusa.com. For more product announcements, visit mixonline.com/products_new_products/index.htm.
