AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 160

post #2386 of 3252

My one and only experience with AKG's warranty was having to wait four months and ultimately get an inferior model as a replacement. Not too surprised to hear that they're fooling around still.

So... I adjusted the EQ: 

 

31 Hz = +4dB

62 Hz = +3dB

125 Hz = +1dB

 

The rest of the EQ bands are flat.

 

This gives the Annie a needed bass boost (IMO) without having it interfere with the mids and highs.

 

I think the amp from the ZxR is powering the Annie just fine.  I am getting consistent bass throughout and no sounds are clipping or becoming distorted.  When set to high gain, the volume levels start to become uncomfortable past 25%. So, there is plenty of juice going to the Annie.  If I crank the EQ I can really get the bass to pound, while remaining clear.  However, it is not the balanced sound that I am looking for.

 

So, while the Annie sound out of the box was not exactly what I wanted, I was able to tweak it to my liking with the EQ.  I hope the sound stage opens up a bit with a little more burn-in.

I can't imagine you'll have a problem with the second set.

 

The tech support process was fine.  They just failed to actually SERVICE the headphones. 

 

I was very clear and specific about what the problem was, but when the headphones got there they apparently ignored the information I gave them and instead started looked for a different problem.

They made up their own problem and then decided to "fix" that problem - which DIDN'T EVEN EXIST - and ignored the actual problem that DID EXIST - the one I clearly explained to them.

The techs I talked to today read back my description of the rattling driver problem, so it's there in the ticket. I'm not sure how they managed to ignore it when it came time to repair them.  confused_face.gif

 

Clearly a mistake was made somewhere in the process, but mistakes happen so I won't fault them too much. 

 

 

When I requested that they send out a new replacement headphone, I could tell they would have just sent me a regular K702 if I hadn't said anything else.  They were a little confused when I pointed out that they made TWO different K702s, and I had to clarify several times that they needed to send out a K702 Anniversary Edition as the replacement, NOT a regular K702.

 

Even AKG's own people can't keep track of all the different K70x!!   tongue_smile.gif

Indeed.

 

This will probably be my reaction upon seeing regular K702s in the box:

Correction: Even AKG's own people get lost in their own marketing scheme ;)

I just got these today.  Maybe I'm just used to the HE400, but I find myself turning down songs when certain treble hits on the 702.65.  It can be quite piercing.  I found this to be the case with the Beyers compared to the HE400 as well, which I had simultaneously for about 3 weeks.

The treble on the Annie is considerably tamer than the HE-400 in the treble by a long stretch.. If you mean upper mids, then perhaps, as the HE-400 is quite recessed in the upper mids, while the Annie is forward in that area.

What do female vocals usually hit on their high notes?

Yeah, female vocals tend to hit upper mids quite a bit.
