The AKG K242HD headphones will connect to virtually any portable audio device, including an older iPhone.

For today’s high-definition audio sources, only the best headphones will do. The K242HDs are the supreme step up from other high-performance over-ear headphones, delivering the best in high-output sound and frequency response from virtually any portable device, including the iPhone. They feature a semi-open design with high-end drivers that deliver supreme frequency response, with low frequencies reproduced all the way down to 15 Hz and high frequencies reproduced with dazzling clarity out past 25 kHz. They reproduce this frequency response with the best detail and dynamic range that the AKG brand has to offer. They’re also designed for high output with minimum distortion making them the ultimate upgrade for audiophiles who listen in mobile environments. You get all of the sound and none of the noise.

Extra-large speakers with Varimotion diaphragms provide higher sensitivity and a wider dynamic range. Varimotion is the first technique that allows the production of a microphone diaphragm whose thickness varies along its diameter. This provides better control of the capsule resonance, reducing the need for expensive mechanical tuning resonators in the shaft to a minimum. Varimotion diaphragms can vibrate freely, providing a much crisper, cleaner sound than conventional designs.

For the finest possible transmission of their wide frequency response, the K242HDs use a single-sided, 99%-oxygen-free cable. The hard gold-plated jack plug and contacts resist corrosion and enhance sound clarity.

You can use the K242HDs with your home stereo, portable DVD, CD and MP3 players and many other audio/video players. With their slim, tapered connector, the K242HDs are compatible with all versions of the iPhone including first generation mode They’re an ideal upgrade to any portable device.
