If AKG will come out with a new driver which increase the resolution, this will be simple the BEST dynamic hps out there!!

Defo.

I noticed that the K702 65th foam insert between the driver and the mesh was firmer, and looked more dense, than the one on the K701.

 

However, this could just be from being new and unused, and I have no Idea how to check the density of foam...

 

It's just maybe AKG heard about the "foam-rolling" mod people had done to their AKG's, and decided to play around with it.

 

If you get bored one day you can take a picture of the foam for us.

I can compare it with my Q701s foam.

 

K601 and Q701 have different foams.Well different part numbers at least.

 

The Q701 does sound about 1% clearer with no foam, but I won't bother with that nonsense. I did once and I must have been extremely bored.

 

I believe K701 and K601 use the same foams. I'll have to double check. K702 and Q701 foams look different.

 

Here's some photos for references:

Q701 foam is rougher feeling and sparkly.

 

You'd think that AKG would not be crazy enough to make multiple variations of foams, but they do have different part numbers,.

I mentioned before, K701 have the most comfy where K702 are very close, but not the same and Q701 gave me skin irritation.

I spent big money this weekend after being a lurker for over a month on this forum doing research about gears.  I am moving from speakers to headphones because of my current living situation and room size.  Stuff I paid for this weekend:

 

1.  Oppo BDP-105

2.  AKG 702

3.  Schiit MJOLNIR

4.  Cheap balanced XLR cables to connect oppo to schiit

5.  Some cheap dvi to hdmi to connect my dell monitor to oppo

6.  Some cheap toslink to connect from computer sound card to oppo (might not need it because oppo is going to be a media server)

 

I decided to go with the cheapest hi-fi headphone that I can get my hands on first and will probably grab something else better after I got my feet wet in the head-fi world.

Good stuff.

But the cheapest hifi headphone that you have there, is still better than most headphones available. Period.

You're gonna have to spend some serious money to do better. I'd just hang fire on the hp's and just enjoy the music! :)

I read through that a few times trying to comprehend it. It makes my head hurt on many levels.

Cognitive dissonance!

post #1362 of 3241

I think what hes's trying to say is that although a headphone such as HD800 may have better resolution, the AKG's are more pleasing in other areas :D

 

And are better than the K1000 and T1. To his ears. Horses for courses my friends.

post #1363 of 3241

lol, what I said... is don't let the 800's treble spikes fool you for resolution. About the T1, well... here is more info: http://www.head-fi.org/t/595522/akg-k702-vs-beyerdynamic-t1-in-the-studio

 

Hehehe, nobody mentioned yet the expensive headphones must be better. tongue.gif
