THRILLER: The Quincy Jones' designed headphones that adjusts to your anatomy.

Quincy Jones-inspired headphones featuring personalised sound are the latest audio hit to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The AKG N90Q by Harman is being billed as the world's first set of personalised sound headphones, featuring TruNote technology which automatically reproduces sound adjusted to the user's anatomy.

The software uses an auto-calibration solution and two microphones in each ear cup to measure the user's frequency response while wearing the headphone. This generates an accurate correction filter, all within a second.

Designed by Grammy-award winning musician Jones with the help of his daughter Kidada, a designer for Disney, the cans come in a sleek black and gold colour scheme.

"There are only 12 notes, and no matter what genre of music you are enjoying, whether it be Jazz, R&B, Pop, Rock or Classical, I believe the enhanced experience provided by the AKG N90Q will offer the listener such exact sound and customisation that you will believe you are in a professional recording studio," said the star.

CES has also seen music company Gibson Brands roll out its new Trainer by Gibson headphone range, designed in collaboration with Olympian Usain Bolt. Features include a NightNav LED light for training in the dark, a CoolTouch thermo regulator and a WeatherSeal protection, meaning the headphones can be used in all conditions.

The AKG N90Q will be available for sale in summer 2015. — AFP/RelaxNews 2014
