AKG
SOUND THAT RELEASES
THE CREATIVE SPIRIT
Almost 70 years ago, in Vienna, a
physicist and an engineer at the top
of their craft, created the world’s first
integrated open headphones to assist
the process of creating sound. A sound
so precise, so perfect, so clear from
distortion and distraction, that it
transports the listener to a mental
space of pure clarity. That product was
AKG. Used by some of the world’s most
influential musicians, producers and
inventors, AKG continues to ignite the
creative spirit.

AKG equipment has gone on tour
with music legends such as
Frank Sinatra, Peter Gabriel,
The Rolling Stones and Kanye West,
among many others. In 2010,
AKG engineers received a GRAMMY award
for their technological innovations and
contributions to the music industry.
Our goal is bigger than music and
headphones. It's about ensuring that the
world’s creative spirit is released,
so we can keep moving forward.
That’s why AKG has teamed up with
a legend like Quincy Jones to bring
you the N90Q headphones.

N90Q
THE HEADPHONES THAT
LISTEN TO YOUR EARS
ENSURING EXTREMELY ACCURATE
SOUND REPRODUCTION
TruNote technology consists of a new, proprietary
software solution for auto-calibration and frequency
response measurement. In combination with a
patented dual foam ear cushion and a pistonic
motion driver, TruNote enables music reproduction
with maximum accuracy.

The auto-calibration solution uses two microphones
in each ear cup to measure the frequency response
while you are wearing the headphones, and generates
an accurate correction filter, all within a second.
By analyzing sound pressure distribution, the technology
inside the N90Q is able to adjust the sound according
to the shape of your ear, minimizing distortion and
delivering truly accurate sound.

ULTIMATE CUSTOMIZATION BY AKG

The N90Q is definitely unique, featuring five
HARMAN patented technologies. One of them is
the dual-density memory foam ear cup that
helps to suppress unwanted reflections between
ear and driver, and also supports passive noise
cancelling performance while dramatically
improving comfort.
Together with the novel pistonic-motion 52mm
transducer, it ensures optimal sound reproduction.
Moreover, the built-in DAC allows high definition
digital audio tracks on a PC to be played directly
through the USB port so that there is no loss of
quality due to digital/analog/digital conversion.

THE HEADPHONES
CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR
EQUIVALENT OF PERFECTION
THE WORLD’S FIRST
BESPOKE HEADPHONES
The N90Q are the first headphones whose
sound can be truly customized not only to your
ear anatomy but also to your personal tastes.
Just rotate the control rings on the ear cup
to subtly and continuously adjust the bass
and treble level, without distorting sound
reproduction. This allows you to fully control
the sound regardless of the type of music.
This feature was inspired by Quincy Jones
and developed under his supervision.

THE HEADPHONE EQUIVALENT
OF A TAILORED SUIT
Standard, Studio or Surround? Whether you prefer
neutral sound imaging, or you like the feeling of being in
a recording studio, the N90Q can be fine-tuned to your
personal tastes.
STANDARD SETTING
In this setting, DSP spatial processing is disabled.
The setting allows the use of external 3D sound imaging
like DTS Headphone:X™ or Dolby® headphone.
STUDIO SETTING
The setting is designed to give you a more natural
listening experience, as the producer intended, even
though they used monitor speakers, not headphones to
produce the content.
SURROUND SOUND SETTING
This setting adds distance to the sound imaging,
creating a more spacious sound, especially suitable for
naturally recorded music (orchestra, jazz), and also
most pop recordings.

NOTHING COMES BETWEEN
YOU AND YOUR MUSIC
CREATING AN UNPARALLELED NOISE
AND DISTORTION-FREE LISTENING EXPERIENCE
The N90Q features five HARMAN patents, including a new
one for active noise cancellation (ANC) with error reduction.
It boasts the world’s first truly audiophile-grade, fully discrete
analog ANC circuitry that delivers superior noise reduction,
without introducing excessive noise of its own.
The noise cancellation topology is a newly patented design
that includes error and distortion reduction. Distortion from
transducer and ear cushion is also attenuated, resulting in
exceptional bass performance and sound transparency.
When it comes to noise reduction and distortion control,
the N90Q is in a class of its own.
