With no assembly, no need for a separate audio interface and seamless software integration, AKG Lyra is designed to work right out of the box. Lyra is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices, so users can quickly record ideas in the studio or on the go.
From recording music in a digital audio workstation, to live streaming on Twitch or shooting a YouTube video, using Lyra is as easy as plugging in a USB cable and pressing go-live or record. An internal self-adjusting shock mount minimizes contact noise, while a built-in sound diffuser and AKG’s proprietary Internal Element Overload Prevention automatically reduces noise, eliminates pops and improves signal levels.
AKG Lyra delivers the highest audio quality in its class, with acoustically transparent, 4K-compatible, Ultra HD-grade 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution. It features the innovative AKG Adaptive Capsule Array, which provides user-selectable capture modes that are optimized for any performance and makes it easy to deliver professional sound for any application. The plug-and-play operation allows creators of all experience levels to get set up with and start recording quickly, while easily accessible controls provide complete control and seamless ease of use.
Both, AKG K361-BT and K371-BT headphones are ideal for those who want the flexibility of wired or wireless connectivity combined with studio-quality sound.
The K361-BT and K371-BT feature an over-ear, closed-back design that is precision-engineered to reproduce natural, balanced audio in exceptional detail, so users can make more confident decisions when mixing and editing.
With a stunning frequency response—15 Hz to 28 kHz in the K361-BT and 5 Hz to 40 kHz in the K371-BT—they deliver the deepest bass and highest highs in their class. Both headphone models offer the convenience of switchable Bluetooth wireless and wired connectivity, with a built-in microphone for two-way Bluetooth communication.
Plush, ergonomic ear cups cradle the listener’s ears to provide hours of uninterrupted, comfortable enjoyment. With the latest generation Bluetooth 5.0 technology, users will enjoy up to 40 hours of wire-free listening between charges on the headphones.
The hybrid wired/Bluetooth design allows users to reference their mixes in a variety of listening scenarios, while an integrated microphone enables hands-free phone calls. Additionally, the headphones are intentionally styled with ergonomic plush, slow-retention foam pads for long-wearing comfort, with adjustable calibrated headbands that deliver a perfect fit, every time.
