Just ordered some AKG 712's. Got my refund for the broken 702's, watching them being unboxed on YouTube I noted my box was not wrapped in cellophane, the cans were not in a plastic bag and the cable was detached and stuck in a small compartment at the bottom, again no plastic bag. Either it was a genuine mistake and they sent me a broken pair or someone has pulled a fast one at this company and got themselves a two hundred quid pair of cans for nothing.
Didn't order my new pair from them obviously. Although trying to actually find a pair for sale in the UK didn't go well, just two companies, the one I ordered from before and the other was sold out. Went with Amazon, even though it's a market place order from Germany and they are new on there at least you have the security in case things go wrong.
Was briefly tempted by the Hifiman ones but I really like a single sided cable, constantly having to lay twin cables on your chest and having it drag on you is a pain. My Ultrasones don't match my new DAC and Amp I'm afraid - I have enjoyed them thoroughly and they are bullet proof, drop them, roll about with them in bed - nice and flat for head on the pillow listening, cables last forever, just the best for fuss free enjoyable listening. Maybe one day I'll save up for some top of the line Ultrasones.
