So I can't say that your K701 matches the older graph's sound, but it never hurts to try new gear bigsmile_face.gif

 

I fear I'm so out of touch with real life that I had to Google (actually Ixquick) Carrot Top!

 

The only thing wrong with trying new gear, especially for an old geezer on a fixed income, is the out-of-pocket cash. Otherwise you're quite right, of course. (The one thing I have been thinking about treating myself to is a new headphone amp. An old Dutch friend bought a Nixie tube amp, about which he's ecstatic. But since he uses some Grado gear that's less power hungry than my AKGs, I've no idea whether I'd be equally happy. No one here at Head-Fi has come through with a thorough review, alas.)

 

Apropos 3X0's comment, I ought to admit, too, that since I live alone, the color shouldn't matter to me, since once the 'phones are ensconced on my own (formerly blond [whilst I had all my hair] rather than strictly carroty) top, I can't see the color anyway. Still, there's that pea-green cable …

 

I'm counting on you and the other young'uns to keep up the good work! Thanks again for all you have done for me thus far.

What a great photo!  Just some wild and crazy headphone guys...

 

I just thought I would chime in after having the Annie headphones for about a month, also I am in the boat of with others that are having to watch their expenditures.  That disability, and fixed income jazz is a load of crap, not to mention getting old is a bit of a drag too since to many things hurt at times. Oh well I did have fun on all the motorcycles...

....... I do know who Carrot Top is though.

 

The AKG headphones have given me no regrets.  I like them much better than the HD 600s that I last had.  I find them flatter in the mids, and the highs.  I find the bass to be about the same as the HD 600.  The mids and highs have a better "Clarity" in my opinion.

I think the photo also explains why the k1000 could never have been a mainstream product: nobody would wear them for their look ;-)
Nevertheless a cool photo, very geeky.

Was the photo taken at the "Revenge of the Nerds III" casting call? (Well, they certainly trumped my audition.)

is there any solution to the problem that my right ear is touching the driver of the Annies? (without changing pads to the older ones)

post #2648 of 3296
Swap the left pad with the right one. If the right ear still touches, that's a personal issue, not one for the headphones. frown.gif

The pads aren't angled, so it's perfectly fine to switch the pads.

i already tried :(

are there any bigger custom pads out there?

its about 3mm ... - if i remove the foam rings under the earpads, my ear stops touching... - how much do they change the sound signature?

Just get some K702 pads. They're made of a different material and don't compress as much as the Anniversary pads.

The K702 pads are angled, so it's less likely your ears will touch the driver.

 

Or sell the Anniversary and side-grade to the Q701 biggrin.gif

Can you get the anniversary pads to put on a q701?

i would have bought the X1 if they would have changeable pads

Yes. Same headphone. Internally.
post #2654 of 3296
I can't believe your ears touches, mine don't and people say I have monkey ears.
post #2655 of 3296

its just some upper part of the right ear - and its a very gentle touch which tickles me...

without the little foam ring in the headphone the problem is pretty much gone..
