Description:
AKG Acoustics (originally Akustische und Kino-Geräte Gesellschaft m.b.H., ) is an Austrian manufacturer of microphones, headphones, wireless audio systems and related accessories for professional and consumer markets. The company was founded in Vienna in 1947, and was acquired by Harman International Industries in 1994.

By the time Harman International, an American company, acquired AKG, AKG's United States subsidiary had been established (in Los Angeles in 1985). AKG Acoustics USA, still headquartered in the San Fernando Valley, also houses regional offices for Crown Audio, another Harman Industries subsidiary.
