Founded in Vienna, Austria in 1947 by physicist Dr. Rudolf Görike and engineer Ernst Pless, AKG has become a household name for their superb headphones and microphones. Largely unknown in the years following the AKG's founding, the company found fame in 1953 with the release of the D12, the world's first cardioid microphone. The exceptional quality of the company's microphones meant the D12 and its follow-ups were soon the industry standard for broadcasting and recording applications.

Not finished with setting records, AKG released the world's first supra-aural and open-back headphones in 1959, the K50. By the end of the 70s, the brand had inked endorsement deals with stage legends such a Frank Sinatra (for whom they created a gold-plated C535 condenser microphone), and Austria's greatest ever pop star, Falco.

With a name synonymous with professional excellence, the brand continued to innovate and in 2010 received a Technical Grammy award for the company's contribution to the recording arts and sciences. AKG's parent company, Harman International Industries, was bought by Samsung Electronics in 2017, leading to Samsung AKG earbuds and headphones becoming the standard for users of Samsung's flagship devices, just like the D12 was for professional broadcasters and producers all those years ago.
