AKG Lyra USB Microphone
For 70 years, the world's top recording studios and concert stages have relied on AKG microphones to craft the biggest hits. AKG Lyra brings that legendary acoustic engineering to a versatile USB microphone that plugs directly into your computer, tablet or phone to enable you to record pristine audio in 24-bit/192kHz Ultra-HD quality. Lyra offers four user-selectable capture patterns, built-in noise reduction and sonic enhancements to optimize your audio for any performance or source.
AKG K371 Headphones
AKG K371 professional studio headphones combine performance, accuracy and supreme comfort in a compact, folding design that's ideal for production in the studio or on location. K371s are precision-engineered to match AKG's Reference Response acoustic target to reproduce natural, balanced audio in extraordinary detail. Their high-sensitivity, 50mm drivers deliver deeper bass and higher highs than any other model in their class, with a stunning frequency response of 5 Hz to 40 kHz.
The K371s' over-ear, closed-back design provides superior isolation in noisy environments and prevents sound bleed into your microphone. Headphones are gorgeously styled with plush, slow-retention foam pads and an adjustable calibrated headband for a perfect fit, every time. Earcups swivel 90 degrees for single-ear monitoring, and their feather-light weight keeps ear fatigue at bay.
