That could cause tinnitus - ringing in the ears.
Most Headfiers prefer headphones and/or speakers.
Ok this is pretty uncalled for. Nobody uses these outside and I believe you have only used them during winter time so you are practically speculating here. We've already had couple of warm days here in Finland and while our inside temperature has raised a couple of degrees it hasn't affected the pad heating.
Just got on to listening to them, pretty good so far and they are different from the HE400 in many ways. For one, I forgot how light some of the other headphones are after listening to the HE400 for almost two months. These are pretty light and the ear pads are more comfortable for sure than the HE400. I didn't think the HE400 ear pad are uncomfortable, but after wearing these I can see what others are saying the HE400 velour pads are stiff. I also appreciate the wire being not so stiff,fairly thinner, and also where the wire goes into the cups of the HE400 sometime sticks out and touches my shoulders. What threw me off was I didn't expect these to have auto adjust arms.
The only complaint I have so far is the headband still not perfect as I can feel them on top of my head. I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but when I touch the leather headband it doesn't seem to set flat on my head and I think it's because the headband leather is too stiff. Maybe I'm spoiled after trying out the Mad dogs headband.
not trying to be mean or anything, but the whole HD800 comment is kind of random.
Just a personal comparison for context. Never heard the k1000, but I have listened to the HD800 and Anni. I feel like many people go into a thread for a mid priced headphone hoping to read things like "Sounds way above its price level!" and "Competes with the legendary (insert top-tier headphone here)!" And I just wanted to clarify that that has not been my impression of the Anni. It sounds acceptable for its price.
Well.. you certainly have a type.
Sequencer1 mentioned them some pages ago:
To much of empty talk and this is extra proof, cos, if somebody say that K702 Anniversaries are better than K1000 you are having hallucination at least.
Folks buying headphones these days like they buy pizza's and their opinions based on the differences of tomato ketchup. They do debate about if AKG made in Austria, but at the same time they go and buy those Chinese made clones that simply are stolen designs of the real manufacturers, can this be more pathetic?
Yay!! Mine should be coming tmrw!! Been anxiously waiting for these to arrive. Got a good price for them from razordogdeals so I pulled the trigger hoping to have these to compliment my beloved HD 650s. Demoed a bunch of HPs in a store once, definitely liked the K702 Annies a lot! Was very surprised by how balanced the sound was... they ended up being my second fav that day (fav was HD 800). Outta all the other phones i tried that day (K550, HE-400, LCD2, HE 500, Beyer T1, PS1000) I felt these were the closest to the HD 800s in terms of staging, imaging and tone character (but of course HD 800 beat it out in all respects... but rightly so for the price).
