The large soundstage on the K702 would be the equivalent of sitting in the middle of a concert hall. While good for instrument separation and imaging, I'd normally want the illusion of being in the first few rows for rock and eurodance.
You'll also need a decent amp and dac for these headphones. Neither sounds good out of a laptop headphone jack.
I would not use headphones directly to the laptop jack.I have the Arcam rPac, how is it for the K702? I am in love with the sound of the AKG K450 + rPac combo.The bass is too much, especially at lower volumes, it literally sinks the soundstage and separation.If the K702 is bass light, this would be good...If they lack attack, do they sound like the Tannoy DC6? It is excellent for acoustic music and not suitable for rock, metal or eurodance.
