    Andrea Taglia, FOH and Studio Engineer for the world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, recently added Harman’s AKG K812 headphones to his product lineup. For studio sessions as long as Bocelli’s, Taglia needed headphones that could not only put out consistent and pure sound with the finest sonic details, but could also provide a level of comfort that is tolerable for several hours.
