CES 2015: HARMAN introduces AKG N90 headphones designed by Grammy winner Quincy Jones
HARMAN, American audio and infotainment equipment company have announced the world’s first headphone with personalized sound at the Consumer Electronics Show. Dubbed AKG N90Q, the headphones are inspired and blessed by legendary Grammy winner Quincy Jones. The musician has been associated with HARMAN from the past five years and is very excited to add the AKG N90Q to his signature line of headphones. He believed that the enhanced experience offered by these headphones will mesmerize the listener with rich sound and customization that he’ll feel to be in a professional recording room. Kidada Jones, Quincy’s daughter was involved in designing these cool headphones. She is the one who selected key materials to deliver a premium look and feel along with establishing the overall aesthetic of the N90Q headphones.
These are also the world’s first headphones that features TruNote technology, a new, proprietary software for auto-calibration and frequency response measurement. TruNote reproduces music to reach maximum sound accuracy by combining with a patented dual foam ear cushion and a pistonic motion driver. Using two microphones in each ear cup, the auto-calibration solution measure the frequency response while the user is wearing the headphone. Thus, within seconds, it generates an accurate correction filter.
The AKG N90Q headphones by HARMAN will come with the latest noise-cancelling technology that achieves 20dB wide band noise reduction. These headphones will be on display at CES 2015 and will be available for sale in summer.
