Perhaps, having a speaker on a fridge solely for the purpose of audio alerts is nothing of a biggie or even news, but to put an audiophile equipment maker’s item on a fridge is rather eyebrow raising. The AKG speaker will be a staple on Samsung’s 2018 refrigerator line up with Family Hub and it is the first Samsung products to incorporate AKG, or any brand under the Harman marque, since the South Korean electronics giant acquired the 37-year-old U.S. marque last year.

we can live with wired headphones when we are on the move but back in our humble abode, we wanted something that free us from those cables. to be honest, sound quality is not the only thing we are concern about. looks also play an important role when making our choice for wireless headphones. the AKG K 912 Wireless Headphones happen to be one of those that’s endowed with good look and an equally beautiful charging cradle cum UHF transmitter. of course, we can’t comment on its sound reproduction for now but as far as the integration between the cans and its dock goes, this wins hands down. it’s like a match made in heaven, multimedia heaven, that is. then again, with more than 60 years of audio making under its belt, what could go wrong?

when we heard wind about these premium buds – the AKG K3003 reference class 3-way earphones, we are generally very excited. not that anyone of us can actually afford its premium price tag of about £1,000 (about US$1,619) but it is the design that had us totally hypnotized. awhile back, we were teased with a short video which ends with a final render of the buds but we weren’t impressed until today when read and see more images of this pair of premium buds. earphones might be small but the housing crafted out from a single piece of stainless steel really took our breath away. we can’t say for sure about the sound until a proper audition is done but for now, most of us just can’t take our eyes off it.
