K701's are too small?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I hear the K701's aren't for people with larger heads, so if I buy them and they're too small, are there any mods I can do to change that?

Not really. The only idea I have is to use K601 pads. I never heard of anyone having problems with a large head.

Do you have the chance to try before buying?

I'm curious where you heard that - 


Because I have the 702's, essentially the same headphone, and it seems to me that they could fit

just about any head size comfortably.

Honestly , I think that a large head size is better for the K701s, they're gigantic headphones.

I've heard a few comments over here and in some reviews, so that made me kind of confused, but I guess I could always return them if they're too big.

Mmm, I guess I'll just have to see then, high hopes it'll for just fine though seeing they ARE pretty big in pictures.

Thanks everyone!

Same here, we all have different noggins but I would have to say that the AKG K-series

is a contender for ~ one size fits all.

I will agree with what's been said here that the K70X heaphones are large but fit pretty well on most head sizes.

I think that the K7--, with its self-adjusting headband, is plenty big enough for most users. If your head is too large, however, some report that the feeling of pressure can be a real annoyance.


That's why there's an easy fix for most users. Wear the K7-- forward; that eliminates nearly all pressure, without sacrificing a bit of sound quality.

They fit big heads.

sounds like the op might have a stewie griffin size head if worried about the k701's being too small.

They aren't for big heads because they'll have a tight fit. They're huge though. The ear cups covers my girlfriend's face and front part of her head completely

Think of it like this, if the K701/2s don't fit you, at least you broke the Guiness world record for having the biggest head in the world.

Too small? are you kidding?
