KORG are also re-entering the headphone market with these innovative noise-cancelling headphones designed for DJs, tapping into an unexplored market for noise-cancelling technology.
The i3 is an entry-level workstation with a huge variety of pro-level sounds.

Numerous sounds ideal for solo performance have been added, making the RK-100S fit instantly into any musician’s stage performance.
