Yes - if you've got a solid AC powered amplifier, and listen to lossless files

(and or CD's/vinyl).

 

I'll note here that I recently picked up a new set of K702's, made in China -

the K702's I had about a year ago were made in Austria - and the new ones

(from memory) sound better to me than the older ones.  The build quality is

virtually identical, and they seem to have more bass, a softer yet fully detailed

high end, slightly less soundstage, and a more coherent, stable presentation all

around.  All for $225 or so.

 

What I'm suggesting is that the "new" K702 may be enough improvement for

many over the "old" K702,  

 

But still, the K712 outdoes even the new K702.  In a quite subtle way it's a

spectacular headphone.  As long as there's enough juice behind it IME.

An ALO National, JDS O2, or similar large portable just won't cut it with

the K712's.  Again, IME.

Absolutely not. The 712 ruins the neutrality of the 70x.

To each his own...  I disliked my K701 and K702 but I'm really happy with the K712 - at least we agree that the K712 is a different beast...

I need to exercise further restraint, since it feels like 1 post = 1 headphone purchase. :blink:

Actually its the exact same headphone with a bass port opened in the back of the driver and a different headband strap. So no, not exactly a "different beast".

Actually the K712s bass port is closed.
