Eggshell pads of the TH-900 never gets hot for me. Hifiman pleather and similar are horrible.

All leathers, fake or real bother me. From synthetic, protein, lambskin, or regular leather. Its cloth/velour or nothing at all.

That's a pity, you would've really really liked it. Great soundstage, very detailed, very low distortion, fast hard hitting bass that goes very low, euphonic presentation.

 

To hyperbole: it's simply magical. I think you can relate as you loved the D7000 through and through (upon which the TH-900 improves greatly)

 Why didn't you get one of these..wasn't the headphone amp loud enough to power the K712?

The Musicstreamer II+ is considered a better sounding DAC than the HRT Microstreamer, plus I got the Musicstreamer II+ for cheap. It has nothing to do about loudness, it's about quality.

I have heard one of the music streamers..it was a red one in a club, a dj was using it with a korg thingy that had 16 bit sound and put it through the dac then through the club sound system and it sounded much better! you have the grey one not the red one that's supposed to be even better than the red one!

Your other bet is something on ear, which gets rid of jaw discomfort for pinched ears. YMMV.

 

Just received the K712 and wow the comfort is supreme compared to the Q701 imo, I'd like to thank you for recommending them to me, Sound great, Aswell as looking stunning.

 

Edit: Worth the premium I paid also, Just for the comfort alone.

Do you still have the Q701 to compare the sound of the two?

Now I can't wait until I get mine! Comfort is BY FAR a huge priority with my headphones. Gotta wait till ~Saturday to try mine out. Did you order them from Razordog or Amazon?

Amazon UK, from a 3rd party seller.

What about the Alpha pads?

Edit: NM, you included lambskin. Guess it really is no leather for you at all lol.

You really should look into a full size Momentum with 1540 pads. Those alcantaras have the same effect on sound as pleathers, so the differences should be minimal on the momentum once switching.

My question is, are these K712 Pros REALLY a good investment? This is a lot of money (at least in my books) for a pair of headphones and I have no clue what to expect. WIll the K712s be the end of my search for the ultimate cans? Will they last a long time and be well worth the money? 

 

I apologize if this seems like a really dumb set of questions. I'm on the fence about canceling my order and need the reassurance :p

 

For me personally, yes to both of those questions. I love the sound and comfort of my Annies. I paid a similar amount for mine and know I won't be finding anything noticeably better (for an all around can IMO) without stepping into summit-fi territory.
