K702 in the Studio - Page 19

Try to get a pair on ebay, about the amp I'll highly recommend the SPL's Phonitor and the Auditor, on this level of amp's you'll need a good DAC too.

Or get the GP amp.. Just ask Arn if he is selling version 12 for 549.00, which I bought when it was still V5.. Someone who owns both the Auditor & GP amp V12 feels the V12 has better textured bass then what the auditor offers.. & if you can get the V12 for 549.00, it's a absolute steal.. Comes with a universal PS, instead of a wall wart.. Makes a world of difference.. Of course if you need a more versatile amps with balanced outs then the Auditor is the way to go..

I'm always interested, can you post the link, thanks.

In the huge GP thread.. He owns some great amps.. & has 'only' V9... He has the 900 DX1000, & the T1..World class headphones with great bass.. No 702 I believe..:( My V12 with my oppo83se is very clinical, but it hard not to listen to the music.. Works best with my Franken DT48e 200 ohms.. Going from the V6 to the V12 really made me lose interest in the Auditor.. Again.. we should have a mini meet.. But prepare for serious listening if you bring your 702's.. It will bring out all of there analytical qualities.. Separation should be out wordly since they are on my closed back DT48e..

Two things:

 

  1. The Pioneer Monitor 10 has plenty of bass. You only have to pay attention to the bas lines and lower notes and just concentrate on the sound, sometimes I still underestimate that. 
  2. The Sony MDR CD900 ST is in and I am enjoying the Sony goodness, loud headphone though...

 

At the moment the bright clarity of the Sony goodness invades my head which makes me thoroughly enjoy Coldplay's "Clocks", one of my test tracks... If the K702 is really different compared to the K701 sound wise I should try the K702. I preferred my 'new' Pioneer over the K701 as the highs lacked something (I used Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing" as a test track during the Berlin Head-Fi meet.)

 

Consider me temporarily in audio heaven... (Coldplay's "Amsterdam")

Yay, I like the "Money For Nothing" is a great track with great sounds. I'm not sure if there is so much differences between the 701 and the 702, from members reports the 702's are more balanced, and also looks like there is two 701's versions (one of them with more bass).

 

The 702's are more easy to recable, and I'll recommend the Mogami cable W2534. Here is more info: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/378255/akg-k702-build-your-own-cable

If a Mogami W2534 recable (if my memory is correct) can transform a simple HD428 into one of my best all round (travel) headphones - the low end dramatically improved - the K702 is always a better option...

 

For quick impressions the intro from "Money For Nothing" up to 2 minutes and about 3 seconds is just great.

The Mogami is one of the best cable for studio use, I use the Mogami cables in my studio for the last 20 years. Even Quincy Jones use the green Mogami on his famous K701. There is a great improve over the original K-702 cable, mainly better sound separation, clarity and dynamic, and of course the sound is more refined all over the spectrum.

 

I would like to compare the ALO cable to the Mogami 4 Conductor 24awg Quad and to see what is the differences. http://www.performanceaudio.com/cgi/product_view.cgi?products_id=56025602.jpg

Hehehe, one of the best intro ever...I'll continue with a nice rocky sound stage on Yes " Owner of a lonely heart". I also like the Police productions : )

I prefer the rawness of Audioslave's "Cochise" and "Show Me How To Live" otherwise Guns 'N' Roses with "Welcome To The Jungle" is full of diversity. Just tracks that give you a good impression of the clarity and definition of the sound, right away. Free Jazz should be even more revealing...
 

post #282 of 305

Yeah, "Show Me How to Live" is a rocker, I love that tune.

post #283 of 305
Audioslave is great hybrid band but think that their production is not so good and think that its done deliberately. With akg k702 I can hear many flaws, despite it I love that dirty sound and my favourite is " Sett it off ".
In my collection there is MFSL Appetite for Destruction, it' evokes much memories but the thing that got me the most was production of this album.
post #284 of 305

Yeah, I agree loopfreak.  Cornell get's real grungy at times but not always, Scream is a class production and very clean.

post #285 of 305

Thanks for this review. I just bought a pair of the 702's. I was looking for a pair of headphones that would replicate the music I'm making in Ableton live. When i use the Dre Pros my remixes sound good when I'm making them but when i listen on a pair of good studio monitors, the sound is way off... I feel i picked the exact headphones i need. I don't want my headphones to add bass to my music. I want my music to sound good on all load speakers.
