K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I'm with hifiguy on this one. I have both the Q701 and the K702 anniversary and there isn't $250+ difference in the sound or performance. With that being said I do enjoy the comfort of the memory foam ear pads and the bumpless headband. I'm glad I got the anniversary edition and will sell my Q701 here shortly. Knowing the transducers are handpicked and matched is nice as well.

I did that at the Dutch headphone meet last week and there was hardly any difference. Not even in the lows... (between my K702 and a Q701 that is, not the b-day edition).

 

Also, quite a coincidence that the AKG K702 anniversary edition and the Audio Technica M50 anniversary edition both have a blue ring on them...

The more I listen to the K702AV the more I feel that it may be the BEST K702 release to-date.  The material changes are subtle but pack a punch upon careful evaluation.  Stay tuned for more impressions and review.

Well, their press release says: "The K702 Anniversary edition is listed at a MSRP of €599.00."

 

Amazing price....  as in, overpriced.

Might as well get a Hifiman HE-500..Jeez.

The K701/K702 are in the same ballpark as the HD600 from sennheiser. The new marketing/subtle sound changes don't justify paying double their price. If you're looking at $400 might as well jump into hifimans.

One of my qualms with the K701/K702 is it feels very cheap.

:3 I see you guys. Oh, wolfetan you're correct. It's plastic except band and pads. Thanks all for saving me from Harmon's scheming :D
