Gift guide – Headphones
As young kids, we often found ourselves standing in front of toy shop windows with our noses pressed against the glass, staring longingly at the most expensive toy the window. Those feelings were rekindled when AKG unveiled its eye-wateringly expensive K3003 headphones. With their luxurious hand-crafted stainless steel finish, AKG has gone all out with ridiculously precise audio engineering, creating the first in-ear buds to feature a three-way driver system. In other words, there is a dedicated driver for low-to-mid ranges, another driver specifically for the wider mid ranges, and one for higher, sharper frequencies. Each pair is numbered too, adding to that smug feeling of exclusivity.
