 That's what I hear...it's what the measurements show. 
Be happy to measure them for you.
For the record, I do think the P7 does "scale well."  Much more so than I find the Momentum or HP50.    I find the treble response, while a bit too high for me, is spectacularly good; the resolution on the P7 is stellar.   I would say near world class.   Mid-range dip and mid-bass bloat disqualify it from that category for me, though.   I think the good amps really bring out the great HF resolution of these cans.       Sonido, I suggest you relax, let people...
I've asked them repeatedly for a pair and it's been very slow in coming.    I've heard them twice in trade show conditions and found them to be somewhat harsh, but my experience is very limited.
Thanks for the great thread, guys 'n gals, good stuff.   I find the mids a tad recessed; and the treble while a little bright for my taste is wonderfully well refined; bass seems a bit too mid-bass boosted but it's fairly tight and well extended. I prefer the HP50, but the P7 has some fun and excitement that the HP50 doesn't have.   Actually, my biggest problem with these cans is the ear pads.  They seem a bit too stiff and apply pressure too strongly where they touch....
Hi guys!  Made a little post about this here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/whiskey-grado-companys-first-closed-back-headphone   But there's nothing new in the post relative to the info in this thread.  I mention it because I'm interested in measuring these headphones for my measurement database. If one of you (USA only, sorry) who've purchased it want me to measure it, I'd be happy to provide shipping too and from my lab. You can PM me here or email me at...
 Hi Jude. Just to clarify: I find them a "bit" tizzy. Sounds to me something like there's always a triangle (the instrument) in the treble. I find it modestly fatiguing. I will also say though the I find the overall balance of the K812 better than the HD800, which to me lacks a little warmth in the bass.  The three-pin cable connector indicates to me that AKG doesn't get, or isn't trying to impress this market yet.  I still think it's a good effort on their part, lots of...
Mine are in and measured. I'll break them in for a while and measure again. Kinda tizzy; doesn't resolve as well as the 800.   Beauty build though, nice to see AKG doing something new and interesting.    I'll have to review them because they're important, but not sure they're really there for this price.     'Course not much is, in my view. Stuff better be damned good when it's this expensive.
 Yep. I do think the unit I got was not as good as the one I heard in LA. I did remove the outer grill, and the diaphragm was significantly wrinkled around the edges.  I think it was an early unit and had been around to a number of reviewers before me. Joe said he'd send me another to measure if I'd like, I'll take him up on it someday soon.
I'd say that there is  small amount of noise and different people are experiencing differently. One of the striking thing in my measurements is that the matching between both side was VERY good, and I'd be surprised if their manufacturing quality is poor. It's seems more likely the case to me that some people are just more sensitive and/or are focusing in on it too much once it's heard.
