Flat Sound Signature

A Flat sound signature offers an accurate presentation of sounds without adding colour to your music. Simply put, this sound signature presents audio without boosting any frequencies. As a result, it’s the most natural-sounding signature and provides the closest reproduction of how a track was recorded and produced. Due to their accurate sound reproduction, flat sound signature headphones are preferred by Music professionals, Sound Engineers and used in professional studios for mixing and mastering music tracks and are also loved by audiophiles for immersive listening sessions. You can listen to Classical, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk & possibly every genre in music.

Ideal For Casual Music Listening

These headphones are your go-to when you want to sit back and relax. If you’re someone who is looking to listen to music without worrying too much about the technicalities, then these are the perfect fit for you. You can expect these headphones to conveniently work and pair with most devices like Smartphones and Laptops without needing an Amp or DAC. These offer the ultimate convenience, but we believe that if you care about an immersive listening experience and audio quality, these are not for you!

Ideal for Audiophiles

These Wired Headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Wired Headphones like these. You can expect these Wired Headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Wired Headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Wired Headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

For Studio & Professionals

As the name implies, anything branded a studio headphone will have been designed especially for use in a studio setting, with a particular focus on accuracy and transparency for monitoring and mixing. These headphones present an accurate image of your music than ordinary headphones, allowing you to hear every nuance and aspect of your music. Therefore, having a good set of studio headphones is just as important as any other piece of gear in your studio. These headphones provide a fresh perspective to that mix you’ve spent hours working. Essentially, giving you another set of ears.

Super Lightweight Design

When you want to be constantly hooked to your music, you’d need a pair of lightweight headphones – one that you can wear and forget about instead of one that keeps pressing you down with its weight. And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

Works with Android & iOS

One thing all of our phones have in common is that they have replaced the portable media player. These headphones and devices are perfect to pair with your Android and iOS devices and offer functionality previously unknown. If you’re someone who usually switches between a variety of devices with different OS, then these are suited for you. You can expect these headphones and devices to connect seamlessly without any hassle and even offer OS-specific functionality depending on the device. Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.

Closed-Back Design

Closed-Back design headphones are completely sealed around the ear cup, which allows the sound to travel directly into your ears. This means that closed-back headphones will block out a lot more outside noise, yielding much better isolation. Due to this design alone, most closed-back headphones can help reduce about 10 dB of noise. This is the main benefit of closed-back headphones, removing you from the outside environment so that you can focus entirely on the music you are playing. Closed-back headphones usually provide a better “bass” experience, as open backs traditionally struggle in the lows. All in all, these are excellent options for music listening and even studio applications.

"It is also very lightweight, largely because of all the plastic. But knock down the K72 for its lack of heft. The lightweight actually adds to the comfort when you are wearing the headset."

"They’re more comfortable too and their synthetic leather pads are of much higher quality, getting as close to the real stuff in appearance and feel as you’ll find anywhere near the price."

"The K72s aren’t perfect, though. Mid-range colouration means vocals don’t sound entirely natural. Instead, they come across as boxed in and unrefined compared with most other areas of the K72 sound."

"this headphone is worth a listen. If you have a larger budget, you can peruse other models from Audio Technica or AKG, but the general philosophy will remain the same: simple build, good drivers, and great sound."

"The K92's are a big pair of headphones. With their large flat design AKG appears to be making a pair of headphones that it wants people to use in the studio or at home rather than while out and about."

Best budget headphones

Honestly these headphones sound pretty good considering the price.At first audio quality was muddy but after a few hours of Burning In the audio was bright and clear .
i mainly bought these for longer hours of usage and i am totaly satisfied with these. because of over the ear design they are super comfortable.
from my prospective audio- 4 /5 ,( the vocals could have been better)
design - 3.9 /5 ( buildquality is a bit cheap)
comfort - 5 /5
and 5/5 for the guys at headphonezone for quick delivery and service.

A decent headphone for home use

For people like me it unable to serve my purpose all however I wrote an honest review for those are interested to purchases AKG K72 headphone.
The headphone overall performance is decent. this AKG headphone can produce very detailed sound, but not natural. Mid is muddy, high is ok,.bass is quiet good its not excellent with any specific kind of music ... Not made for mixing. Major drawback of the headphone is its design its feel too cheap and boring and annoying … 3m long cable make it costlier and difficult to carry the headband besides it require an external DAC for good performance (without DAC its nothing more than another headphone) is too weak and ugly the speaker Is placed too closely to human ear.
Performance 8.8 (with DAC) and 7 (without DAC)
Design 7
First impression 8

Overall rating 8

Honestly, the best model under ₹4000

Well, I know its base price is ₹4500 or something but I got it for ₹3549 all thanks to Headphonezone. I've used quite a few headphones within this price range but I'm quite sure that these have turned out to be better than all the previous ones. Things that gives these headphones an edge over the others is it's perfect closed back design and a high audio quality with a vast frequency range. Clearity is good, slightly muddy but still, fair enough.
Physically, it's thick single sided wire might outlast the other headphones which usually have a thinner wire. Light weight body and huge ear cups. Definitely go for these if you've got a tight budget.

Hello Anant,

Thank you so much for the words of appreciation. We are glad you liked these headphones. :)
