Joined the K7XX red edition drop. How long will the shipping process take? It'll deliver on the 4th of May IIRC.

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can repair AKG K420 cables? If possible, want to replace it with thicker cables.

Thank you.

Hey guys, anyone know where I can repair my old AKG K701? I fear the cable on the left side might be loose and disconnecting. If someone is able to mod it to allow detachable cables that would be amazing!

The truth of the matter is AKG is shutting down one factory. However, the factory to be striped down is AKG’s Austrian headquarters in Vienna. The branch which has been around for nearly 70 years, will be laying off employees through June 2017. It is reported 131 employees will be affected. According to derStandard.at, “parent company Harman says it was a difficult decision that they were forced to make due to tough competition in the audio market” and “R&D teams that developed their products WILL NOT BE retained by Harman.”

There goes the Austrian heritage of AKG vmad.gif

Then Harman as a group, was sold to Samsung ranting.gif

Samsung Electronics has announced a deal to buy U.S. car infotainment and audio company Harman in an all-cash transaction, valued at about $8 billion.

As the first stage of this audio collaboration, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 will debut with quad stereo-sound speakers tuned by AKG.

Hi everyone! My AKG K550 earpads and headband cushion is peeling off.

Anyone got recommended replacement earpads and cushions? Links would be appreciated!
