Hrmm so I just got semi-interested in this headphone since it was mentioned a lot in the new K712 thread. How different-sounding is it compared to the old K701 or K702? I can't believe there are people saying they think it's better than the HE-400, or LCD-2 even - wow, seriously? The "Annie" is really that good? I'm a little skeptical only because I previously owned both the K701 and K702 which I didn't think were that good, and I heard them out of above-average amps & sources too (mostly HeadAmp & various tube amps and Arcam-level or better CDPs).
Ummm summary of this giant thread:
K702 65th anniversary is the Q701 with different set of pads (as far as sound goes). Looks like the pads are softer and may create a steeper angle interface with the ear both of which increase bass and midrange.
