LOS ANGELES, California – In accordance with its commitment to using world-class technology to educate visitors on the history of all forms of music, The GRAMMY Museum® recently added 200 customized HARMAN’s AKG headphones for its exhibits and programs.

Part of the LA LIVE complex in downtown Los Angeles, The GRAMMY Museum is an interactive celebration of the power of music, occupying four floors and 30,000 square feet of exhibits, interactive experiences and films that provide museum-goers with perspective on the history of music, the creative process, the art and technology of recording, and the history of the GRAMMY® Awards.

To deliver clear and immersive audio to its visitors, The GRAMMY Museum turned to AKG, whose world-class headphones and microphones are used by some of music’s most accomplished artists and producers. In fact, AKG is a GRAMMY winner of its own, earning a Technical GRAMMY in 2010 in recognition of AKG’s contributions to the art and science of music recording and performance through innovation and excellence in product design.

“When The GRAMMY Museum opened in 2008, we outfitted the entire museum with HARMAN Professional audio equipment, and it has been an incredibly successful relationship from the beginning,” said Eric Stock, Senior Manager, Production and Interactive Design for The GRAMMY Museum. “We are happy to continue this relationship with the addition of these custom AKG headphones, which will only add to the interactive experience of the Museum.”

“Given the number of GRAMMY-winning music professionals who have used AKG equipment over the years, and considering AKG’s own Technical GRAMMY in 2010, the history of AKG and the history of popular music go hand in hand,” said Karam Kaul, Director of Marketing for AKG. “We are honored to have so many visitors learning about music history every day through our products, and we hope their use of AKG gives them an even greater understanding of the tools that are used by the best in the business.”
