I read that the Beyer Pro series, like DT880 and DT990 Pro, have hand matched drivers, while the Premium Editions do not. Doesn't really make much sense to me if that's the case.

I think he may have been referring to early T1 runs. In the beginning there was so much variation in the driver production, the driver to driver variation could be quite large. After the process has been done for so long more and more drivers start to sound the same and are produced in a similar fashion. You can see that in the Q701 measurements.

Suppose the Pro's are for studio applications so matched drivers will be essential when mixing. Not much need for when your just sitting back enjoying the music at home with the more comfortable (Wonder if there is someone at the end of the production line stretching the headbands to make them the-) premium's wink_face.gif

I just saw the locking mechanism design of the Denon D-5000 pads, looks like the K702 pads. Maybe you guys can confirm if the Denon D-5000 pads will fit on the K70X ?

Not really assuming.  I've put these Denon pads on other headphones.  And it does just that.

If you own both, you should try and see if they even lock up, and if they do what happens to the sound.  For science.

I dont think they will. The AKG housing has a tab that sticks out and the Denon pads have a tab that sticks out.

It's nice to see some Q701 vs K702-65th comparisons. After reading here I'm still glad I chose the Q701 because I like them just the way they are. I wouldn't trade extra bass for the sparkly treble or bigger/airier soundstage. I also like the angled pads of the Q701, I'm a big fan of angled pads. I have no problem with the comfort of the Q701 either.

Same.  I wouldn't give up the Q701 for the anniversary.  Luckily the Q701 pads + Anniversary  = Q701 sound k701smile.gif
