STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The new AKG K323 XS in-ear headphones represent a breakthrough in studio-quality sound in a compact package. Despite their miniature size, the AKG K323 XS headphones adhere to uncompromising AKG standards for sound quality, comfort, versatility, and functionality.
The AKG K323 XS comes in 4 fashionable colors, as well as black and white, and boasts the sound quality and extreme comfort of an in-ear headphone more than twice its size, but without the extra bulk or weight.
"Our new AKG K323 XS headphones are living proof that you don't need huge size to get huge sound over a wide frequency response range," said Michael Mauser, President of HARMAN Lifestyle. "Specially-selected 5.6 mm drivers and an enclosed back design, plus AKG audio engineering savvy, all work together to deliver precision audio with the sound quality AKG products have made famous for over 65 years."
The secret of the AKG K323 XS's listening experience is in its innovative ear-tip technology. The tip is shaped to maximize the fit between the headphone and your ear, creating sound isolation that makes for an immersive listening experience. Add to that the extreme comfort that comes with your choice of four sizes (XS, S, M, and L) of ear sleeves, and you'll discover a snug fit with studio-quality sound that's comfortable enough to wear all day without fatigue.
The AKG K323 XS comes with a lightweight straight cable. But because you'll need to do other things while you're wearing them (because you won't want to take them off), the AKG K323 XS headphones give you options. Choose a one-button in-line control microphone, for Android users, or a 3-button control mic cable compatible with Apple iOS devices. You'll be able to take calls and control the music without removing your headphones.
