AKG Quincy Jones Signature Series Q 460 On-Ear Headphone with Mic - Black
Music producers depend on headphones for their success - and with an unprecedented 79 Grammy® nominations and 27 Grammy awards, no living producer has achieved greater success than Quincy Jones. Designed for long hours of comfortable use, the Q460s will connect you to your favorite music from virtually any portable audio or video player with all the dynamics you'd expect (and Quincy demands). Q460s are lightweight, comfortable and designed to cancel out most ambient noise, freeing you up to enjoy hours of dynamic, balanced, reference-quality sound. Plus Q460s are the perfect partner for use with smartphones, allowing you to make and receive calls as well as control several music playback functions of the iPhone with its in-line remote control. Akg® Acoustics was founded in 1947 in Vienna, Austria. The company quickly established a reputation for superior microphones and other audio equipment in radio stations, theaters and jazz clubs around Europe. More than 60 years and 1,500 patents later, the Akg® brand is one of the most famous in professional audio-producing microphones, headphones and wireless technology for recording studios, radio and TV stations and opera houses. AKG equipment has gone on tour with Frank Sinatra, Eric Clapton, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and Kanye West. In 2010, AKG engineers received a Grammy® award for their technological innovations and contributions to the music industry. Legendary Akg® build quality and sound reproduction. As with all our products at Akg®; the first emphasis is the sound. The studio standard for decades, AKG has taken its legendary build quality and added an extra level of durability into the Q 460s to withstand the rigors of travel and heavy use. The Q 460s' 40mm high-excursion driver produces accurate, dynamic sound designed for high output. This means you get distortion-free, dynamic sound you can really feel in the lower frequencies. And with their remarkable linear frequency response and 99.99% oxygen-free cables, Q 460s reproduce reference-quality music exactly as the artist intended. Comfortable and portable. By design. Comfort and convenience are everything on the road. What good is a high-quality headset if it's too warm, too tight, doesn't sufficiently block out ambient noise or doesn't have the connectivity required to listen to your music across multiple platforms? Every detail of the Q 460s has been painstakingly designed to ensure you get studio quality sound, no matter where you go or how hard you travel. Supersoft, circumaural ear pads combine with the Q460s closed-back, lightweight design to block out most ambient noise and with our patented 3D-Axis2 folding mechanism, Q460s fold away flat into a hard carrying case for easy portability. Connect to just about anything, just about anywhere. Connect to your favorite music from virtually any portable player with all the dynamics you expect - and Quincy Jones demands - from Akg®. Q460s are the perfect partner for use with smartphones, allowing you to make and receive calls as well as control several music playback functions of the iPhone with its in-line remote control. Each Q 460 comes with a flight adapter, a 2.5mm adapter for older Blackberry devices and a 6.3mm adapter for home electronic systems. Touch and go - smart-phone ready. Q460s are the perfect partner for use with smartphones allowing you to make and receive calls from any portable phone. Plus, they work seamlessly with iPhone devices. With their ingenious three-button remote, Q460s can control the music playback functions (play, pause, skip tracks and volume). They also come standard with an in-line microphone that works with any and all mobile phones. Innovative cabling. We never compromise at Akg® and, to ensure you get the best possible audio signal from amplifier to eardrum, we have engineered the same level of quality and revolutionary technology into the Q 460s' cable assembly as we have in the headset itself. We optimize oxygen-free cables for maximized sound reproduction and made them single-sided to be tangle free and detachable, for portability. Each Q 460 comes equipped with the standard cable and a shorter, 4-foot communication cable (works with iPhone devices).
