 I've bought these before, they are not the original AKG OEM pads, although they are pretty decent copies. They are angled regular foam pads like how they are on Q701's and used to be on the K702's, though they are bit softer and less dense than the original OEM pads. Definitely not the memory foam pads like the K7XX/Annie/K712's however.
I actually personally also found the new Annie/K712/K7XX memory foam pads a bit more uncomfortable than the standard spring foam angled pads. I think its partially due to harder density of the memory foam (it does conform to the shape of your face better but the contact on the face seems harder) as well as due to the pads not being angled anymore (the angled pads by nature of their shape takes pressure off the thinner frontal area more, where I have most issues). But as...
 Wow, you're the first person I've seen that actually prefers the old bumpy versions lol... but then again, comfort is just completely subjective. I have the K702 with the newer flat headband, which has no bumps yet still with the original width, so wider than the K7XX/Annies/K712 Headbands and pretty much the same as a K601 headband (with minimal leather grain texture underneath instead of being completely smooth). Anyways, since they are wider you may find them a bit...
 I personally wish they got rid of the volume control altogether... or if they're going to implement one, at least make it much smaller. I found that on the normal version the volume control is way too chunky and actually weigh the headphones down a bit on the left side. Still think it's the best to go with the iphone remote version if you are on the go with these a lot just due to how much smaller the controller unit is vs. the volume control, even if you don't have the...
 Thing is that this headphone also has built in impedance compensator; the driver coil itself I believe has impedance of 32 ohms. Without getting into all the technical details, the impedance compensator was put in there to lower the impedance peak so that the bass section won't be as affected by an amp's output impedance as much. These actually require about the same level of volume range of my Creative Aurvana Live!, which is coincidently 32 ohms. With my MA900 I go well...
 I'm quite confident in that case that your combo unit probably has the Epiphany's old default gain of 1x and 5x. I do know for sure that their change in default gain setting was a very, very recent thing, I'm quite sure it was still that was as late as March/April as I recall I was checking their pages at the time. If you want to find out what your DAC revision is you can probably dig deeper through your media player's source options or the control panel to find out what...
 Not sure what you mean by "Jitter", there's no consensus at all on what Jitter actually sounds like... I'm guessing you mean clipping. If so, you may want to contact Epiphany and make sure if it really is their NEW version; if it is clipping at high gain then it's very possible that you may have the older version of this unit which came with 1x low gain and 5x high gain by default.
   The K702 have complicated things lately as the latest versions Made in China now comes with the non-angled earpads (same old spring foam pads though and not the memory foam pads of the K7XX or K712's, so they now seem basically the same as the K612 pads), although I believe there are some Made in China units with the angled pads as well which were seemingly caught between the transition. All the Made in China K702's now come with the flat, no bump headband from what I...
I've had both of them but I've gone the other way around, from 112's to the ER4's... The 112/122/132's have more sparkly and noticeable highs but I find the ER4's to be more thicker and detailed in the midrange and bass. PFE's are much more comfy obviously but ER4's are much better in isolation. Overall I think that the two have similar enough balance in sound that if you like one signature you'll likely find the other likeable as well. I think ER4's are technically better...
 Yes. The K701 and the Q701 earpads both feature earpads that are angled, thus noticeably more thicker at the back (Early K702's also had angled pads, although the latest Made in China ones seemingly don't). The foam on the angled pads is much harder as well and don't compress, preventing the pads squishing and having your ears touch the driver covering on them as long as you wear them properly, IMO. I'm currently using a K702 with angled pads and flat headband and the...
