Ok.  Let everyone know how you like it, and if you ever get the gel pads from the K7XX, or not....

If anyone has got those k7xx pads and is interesting selling them or knows where I can buy them without purchasing the headphone please let me know.

If you are in the states contact the AKG parts department, they'll deal with you directly. Not sure if they'd have K7XX pads but I'm sure they'll have the K712 ones at least (which should be close enough).

It is my understanding these are the exact same part.  As well as late Annies.

I auditioned the k7xx and I loved the pads comfort. Appreciate the replies!

I thought the K712 pads were memory foam. No?

The k7xx is memory foam.
post #8844 of 8846
Do the k7xx pads increase bass enough so that the bass mod isn't necessary or still recommend the mod even with the pads?

They are all memory foam, and flat (K712, late annie, k7xx), as opposed to the angled, stiffer material used on Q701's and K701's.

I have a tiny hint of touching with the K7XX pads, so I'm inclined to like the angled pads better off that alone.  But the memory foam does influence sound in a darker direction, for any AKG phone you put those newer pads on.

They are memory foam, I believe they are the same, though there could be some variation throughout time.
