The deadline is rapidly approaching to win a superb pair of headphones, courtesy of PSNEurope and AKG.

As part of their 65th anniversary celebrations, the team at AKG have given PSNEurope a pair of K167 DJ headphones to give away as a competition prize. The cans, worth €249 RRP, are officially endorsed by the world’s leading DJ, one Tijs Michiel Verwest AKA Tiesto.

Here’s what AKG say about them: “The K167 TIESTO is an over-ear, closed-back design for high comfort and maximum noise rejection. Suitable for multiple applications, from the stage to the studio, DJs, music enthusiasts and TIËSTO fans will enjoy the stunning design and impressive sound quality, even in loud environments. Its 40mm driver allows for higher sound pressure levels, while its roadworthy design provides maximum reliability.”

For a chance to win, you need to identify six men from six pictures of their hairy chins. Forget Review of the Year: this is Review of the Beards.

Email the answers to, but do it before 4 JANUARY 2013, the closing date. All correct entries will be entered into a draw and one winner, picked at random, will win the headphones. Contributors to PSNEurope may not enter; the editor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Good luck! And bring on the facial furniture!


Headphone level control - monitoring versus limiting

Technology has allowed higher and higher sound levels to be produced at better and better quality over the past 20 years but more recently there has been a realisation of what this can do to people's hearing. The European Commission acted on this in 2003 by issuing a Directive to harmonise noise control legislation across Europe, which led employers in broadcasting, live music and industry to consider how to protect both staff and the public. In broadcasting, limiter circuits on headphones have been a first line of defence but, as Kevin Hilton reports, a new approach is being taken for location filming.
