About AKG

Beginning with just five workers assembling mics by hand at a small factory in Vienna, AKG, founded in 1947 by Dr. Rudolf Goerike and Ernst Pless, soon became one of the biggest players in the world of audio. Their early microphones were quickly adopted by European radio stations, theaters and jazz clubs and began spreading worldwide. The introduction of their first headphones in 1949, continued their growth, but it was with the release of several firsts, including the first high-quality cardioid condenser mic, the D 12, and the C 12 remote-controlled multi-pattern mic in the early '50s that the company began a more rapid expansion. The C 12 was adopted by the BBC, then the preeminent broadcaster in the world, guaranteeing instant demand around the globe.

AKG has created many products over the years that have become standard tools for audio professionals worldwide: the C 414 multi-pattern condenser, the C 451 small-diaphragm reference condenser, the studio-standard K-series of headphones and many others. Since becoming part of Harman International in 1994, AKG has continued to innovate with new live vocal microphones, analog and digital wireless systems, the Perception series of budget-friendly studio microphones and collaborations with artists like Tiësto for custom-designed headphones for DJs, among many other new products.
