AKG aviation headphone co-developer wins Red Bull Air Race World Series

Hannes Arch, who co-developed the new AV100 aviation headphones from HARMAN’s AKG, recently won the Red Bull Air Race in Rovinj, Croatia. Leading with 21 points, Arch claimed the rank one championship title within the Master Class of the race for the second time on April 13 2014, adding to his previous victory in 2008.

Introduced on April 1 2014, the AV100 headset incorporates the Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling technology to cut out cockpit noise on every flight. Coupled with a superior ergonomic design, it is designed to provide comfort to the pilot’s ears on all levels. Next-gen Bluetooth connectivity is another benefit of the AV100.

Arch comments: “When flying, I noticed the headset was extremely comfortable and manageable in every way. We have now created the quietest, most comfortable and reliable aviation headset on the market today. Flying is my passion, and now it just got a whole lot better.”
