Wow that was probably the smartest comment made in this thread for a good while :D

Yes, I did confirm this with AKG a while back when I was curious about the driver modification:

Yes, they use the same driver part# 2400Z00080. I know the 65th edition does use new ear cup pieces which may be what “retune” is referring to.  I would recommend reaching out to our Main headquarters in Vienna hotline@akg.com

 

Thank you,

Greg

k_702.pdf 168k .pdf file


I just checked something and in that PDF file the part number for the K702 driver is "2400Z00070".

In the new updated PDF manual (that lists both the 65th and K702) it's: 2400Z00080

Same as the 65th and Q701.

 

Your PDF is from 2009 and this one is from 2012.

So they already changed the drivers of the original 702s with the newer drivers. Okay one thing is clear now, all the models use the same driver since 2012.

K701 still uses a different part number, not sure why that would be..

My K701 pads are really old though and I can't even tell which side is the angled side!

K702 shares the same driver part #, foam and pads as the Q701. K701 uses totally different part #s for each one.

 

You can use this for reference:

 



K702 driver:
2400Z00080

K702 pads:
2458M12020

K702 foam ring:
2458Z58010

K701 driver:
2400Z0007

K701 pads:
2458M1201

K701 foam ring:
2458Z5801

All 3 parts below are the same as found on the K702.
K702 65th anniversary also uses the same foam and driver part number.

Pads much different obviously.

Q701 driver:
2400Z00080

Q701 pads:

2458M12020

Foam ring:
2458Z58010

 

Yes, I would be curious to hear the K702 65th with the other pads as well.

 

TDockweiler,

 

 If you're interested in a chance to listen to the K702 65th in late March or April, send me a PM that its ok to PM you.

lol, maybe the 701s have a huge stock of drivers.

I've sent an email to Harman wondering whether the "retuning" they're talking about is an internal modification to the driver itself or something external like the earpads.

I'll send you $100,000,000 if they actually tell you what causes the differences in sound. We've been all figuring out forever why the Q701 sounds so different than the K702 (or K701).

 

My last K702 was purchased in 2011, so maybe some new 702s are similar in sound to the Q701. I A/B compared the two for hours and ended up keeping the Q701.

 

Maybe someone could try to locate a K702 made very recently.

 

I will report back when I get my 65th pads for the Q701. Such a long wait.. not in stock until the 19th.

Not sure a response from Harman carries much weight, to be honest. What could be done to start with is take out the drivers from the 65, put in drivers from the Q 701, measure the response, then compare to the 65's and 701's original responses to see what changed.
