K701 vs K702?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
What are the differences between the 701 and 702? From searching, I have found that it seems to be a different color and a detachable cable as the only differences. Am I missing something else?

I believe that AKG said that those were the only two differences, but I could be wrong. I knew the 702's were coming out but got the 701's instead because if found a new pair for $250. If you are not interested in upgrading the cable I would get the 701's. Who cares what they look like as long as they sound good.

Hey dude where'd you find a pair for 250?

Don't know about the website, but it says that the K701 is only $235 here --> AKG K701 Headphones @ ShipDog

K701's are also often on sale on these forums for between 200-225 depending on condition.

701 pricing

Several months ago, I bought a pair of 701s, new in the box, for $229 on eBay.
Plus shipping, of course.

Color, cable, release date, price, popularity, and probably more...

proprietary cable?

Does anyone know if the cables on the K702 terminate in an industry standard plug at the headphone, or is it AKG's own connector?

Yes 1/8" with a 1/4" adapter. That would be kinda silly to make a headphone that doesn't plug into anything wouldn't it? LOL

Damn i am so tempted. I have the sr225s new (around 3 weeks old), and I have found k701 for 233€. (EDIT: 253€ shipping incl + new) I am very happy with sr225, and don't have a home amp, so my next buy would be a home amp, however if I let this offer go I would find the k701 for 438€

Damn I hate this hobby... Plus I know I will only be able to listen to one pair at a time... No, i should let it go... :S:S DAMN IT!

IS the general consensus that there is ANY difference in sound quality/signature between the K701 and the K702?

 

I know that the consensus is that there IS a difference in sound between the DT880 (2005) and the DT880 PRO (with most people saying that the PRO is inferior) - so is there a similar situation to that with the AKG's?

I've owned both at once. They are sonically the same.

I've gotten the chance to test both of them at Canjam. They are the same imo.
