Quincy Jones Signature Line by AKG, premium headphone collection was announced by HARMAN International Industries, representing a momentous collaboration between AKG and Quincy Jones.
“Music is so much more than notes on a sheet of paper,” Jones said. “When it’s created with passion, with soul, we get something that is greater than ourselves – and it can move us deeply. Throughout my entire career, I have trusted only AKG to deliver the highest standard of sound – the same standard I hold myself to when I make my music.”
Three models are included in the Quincy Jones Signature Line, which are the Q701 premium over-ears, the Q460 high performance on-ear mini headphones, and the Q350 in-ear headphones with AKG-built quality and portable design.
“Quincy Jones and AKG have shared a long-running passion for quality sound and the infinite power music has to connect people and touch lives,” said Dinesh C. Paliwal, chairman, president and CEO, HARMAN International. “We have partnered to introduce products into the marketplace that shine a light on how important sound quality is when you’re experiencing music in all aspects of your life.”
The Q701, Q460 and Q350 headphones are expected to be available in October 2010 priced from $149.99 to $479.99.
