National Audio Show 2013

AKG had a few new headphones on display, but the one that will have the most appeal to the audio connoisseur is the K545. The garish colors do hint at a populist design, but this German company has a good track record and the 50mm drivers in closed-back, over-ear 'phones should deliver a decent result. They come with alternative cables: one specifically for Apple devices with a three button MFI remote (made for iPod), and another universal lead for everything else. The K545s come in three colors and fold flat for ease of storage. The price is 200.
