Product Reviews:
"These headphones sound magnificent." -Marco Dettweiler, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"They are an absolute luxury, even for audiophiles, but we still walked away suitably impressed with the K812's performance. If music is a job and not just a passion, they could be worth every penny." -Tom Morgan,

"And you know what, they do sound really great. ... Everything feels as though it's sat at a given distance from your ears, which is ideal for spot-on stereo mixing and helps gather a true sensation of how different channels sit within a mix." -Mike Lowe,

"This is the best sound emanating from any headphone I've come across...To conclude, AKG have finally delivered. Their flagship is here, a £1000 headphone which will establish a concrete place in the listening pleasures of plenty."
