• How the Kygo Sound App came to life

    When planning and developing our new sound products, we wanted to offer something more to our users. Sure, the be great, but how could we add some more value, make them even more unique?
    We all know Kygo is an expert on music and that in his eyes, the sound quality is the most crucial aspect of Kygo Life. So this was our inspiration, and from where the idea of an app was born. We wanted to give people the possibility to play and have fun with different aspects of music and songs, just as he does.

    You shouldn't have to be a sound expert (we have our sound expert Peter Larsen for that) to be able to adjust the sound in your headset and find the perfect sound image according to your music, your preference or your mood that day. So we offered an equalizer in a brand new package: 4 different sound images that represent and resonate with four cities that had an impact on Kygo's life and career.

    New York
    Ibiza

    Just move the dot through the screen to hear the sound changing in the headset. You can leave the dot anywhere on the screen where you think the sound is best for whatever you're listening to!

    The app is compatible with the products in our ProLine, Kygo A9/600, and A6/500. That's because these products contain a with a powerful Bluetooth chip that allows the headset to communicate with the app and make the changes to the sound that they emit.
    PS! If you want to go back to the original soundscape in the headphones, just tap the reset option in the main menu.

    These chips also allow software updates to happen through the app, which means that the headset will always be up to date and even able to gain new features and functions as we continue to develop them further.

    Of course, you're also one tap away from user manuals, product information, or getting in touch with our team, in case you have any questions or feedback.

  • Meet Kygo A6/500 design headphones

    This new design headset is based on our passion for Scandinavian design. Designwise, less is more; round and clean lines, without any unnecessary elements.We worked a long time to make it as slim and light as possible and hide the cables on the inside, so they won't pop out on the sides when you adjust it.

    Kygo wears A6/500 in black

    Colours are matt and elegant as well, picked out from the fashion universe and our previous collections. We love to see traditional people who would only go for black or white, choose our headsets in the burgundy or military green (or Palm, as we call it)!

    We have inserted the same technological features of our flagship headset A9/600, built in a smaller on-ear version. Meaning that the Kygo A6/500 got all the features you need - high sound quality through aptX and AAC codecs, 18-hour battery life and comfort, even for long periods of time thanks to memory foam ear cushions and the lightweight.

    As the A6/500 is part of our PRO-LINE series, it is also compatible with the Kygo Sound App.

    Thanks to that, it was specially recommended with five stars from one of Scandinavia's biggest tech-magazine Lyd & Bilde, who says: "Dynamic sound with tight rhythms. It sounds about just as good as it's bigger brother A9. Wireless reach is impressive, and the EQ-settings in the app give good alternatives".

  • Sound Development

    As a musician, the sound quality of the headphones is the number one priority for Kygo.

    When developing his line of headphones, he spent a lot of time with the team to create a sound image with just the right amount of bass and clear highs and that could work both when making music in the studio and when performing on stage.

    One of the key members of this team is Danish acoustic engineer Peter Larsen.
    Peter Larsen has 40 years of experience in developing loudspeakers and drivers for the biggest brands in the industry.

    Headphones are not just about the drivers that are placed inside; it's also about how the housing design improves (or not) the sound., and this works entirely different for over-ear and on-ear headsets, for example.

    Therefore, Peter has worked closely with Kygo and the team of designers so that all our products have incredible sound quality, no matter what.
