Contact Frank Rodriguez, and tell him you'd like to order a pair of AKG K702/Q701 pads, part number 2458M12020.

 

Cost is quite cheap - there about $10-15 per pad.

But the anniversary ones... Well I mean those took so much artisan craftsmanship, they need to charge the $70 or whatever...

Different as in the Anniversary pads are more expensive than the regular ones?

Uhh, different as in a different price for the same item.  Could be wrong but another person earlier in this thread posted that he was quoted $10.XX for each of the Q701/K702 pads.

 

Thanks.

The Annie pads aren't the same as the regular K702.  The Q's and K702 reg are angles pads.  The Annies are a little fuller and softer, not angled.

Yeah, that was me. 

 

I don't know why mine were $10.  I guess I just get a discount for being special. wink.gif

Oh boy...


AKG k501?

post #1944 of 3241
how is annie vs he400? which one is better for female vocal? mids?
post #1945 of 3241
The Annie wins on both counts. The HE400 has thin mids in comparison (had them both at the same time).

My Q701 pads came in today! 

 

Plump.  Juicy.  Delicious. 

 

*Snniiiiffff*  Mmm....with that brand-new-velour smell.

Still, the Annie hits weeeell above their price, IMHO.

I find the HD800 to be so well balanced for me that I no longer the need to try any more headphones for a while.  Nor can I really justify multiple sets, I'd rather just put that money into the rig supporting the main headphone.  The Anni is certainly well balanced enough for single headphone use and a great value though I wouldn't say endgame necessarily.  

 

The R1 LCD-2 was my first real "flagship" headphone and I owned it for over a year but in the end I ended up dissatisfied with it's poor soundstaging and muffled highs.  Maybe the R2 version is better in this regard.  Though I'm still no longer a fan of having a neck workout whenever I want to listen to headphones (i.e. planar-magnetic weight).

The R2, leather version is still bad in soundstage, and the highs are pretty smooth... smoother than the Annie's highs.

HOWEVER, the vegan/leather free LCD2 is a noticeable improvement in soundstage, perceived clarity, and treble extension. It's more neutral sounding than warm compared to the leather version. The bass still hits as hard, but the sound isn't as thick and heavy as the leather variant. I think it's technically superior, but I sometimes miss that really stuffy, milky tone of the leather. Its subtle more than anything, but the difference is there.

I bet Audeze would sound the best with an Orpheus/Jergpad-style leather earpads with velour top. A thin layer of velour is all that's needed to break the "closed-in" seal without negatively impacting the tonality.

Same here JWahl.  I agree.  Also for me the Annie does more things right when compared to the LCD-2.2.  The Anneis treble is not shelved like the LCD-2.2.  Now the LCD-3s treble is very good.  For me the Annie wins in the treble as well.  Just not the bass.
