AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 184

post #2746 of 3233

Wow...just bought a brand new Annie for $350. Was going to get the K712 pro, but after reading about it it looks like the Annie is still the King. Can't wait for this to arrive. Really looking forward to try this superb headphone:-) Going to get a Schiit Lyr soon as well, and hope that they'll be a match made in heaven:-)

Word of caution: avoid the JJ tubes with the Lyr for the Annies. I tested a friend's Lyr with those tubes using the Annies... just a nasty sound to me ears, way too harsh.

I've got plenty of tubes already from the Aune T1 and a previous project. Voshkods, Mullard, Siemes CCa, Amperex OG and 7308, Toshiba, and also the JJ's, so plenty of tubes and time to find my match:-) Will probably not get the Lyr yet...got to ship out a little bit first;-)

Yeah, that was me:

Please post a review before and after burning of the Annie when you get it :)

I may be ending up with the same setup, my Annies are pretty well broken in or damn near there. just need to move my Valhalla and order the Lyr or MAYBE Asgard 2, depends on a couple things...

 

My Annies with a class A tube hybrid amp a Musical Fidelity X-Can v2(not quite a Lyr, but the same design concept more or less) is a really good match.  Very nice sound, smooth yet detailed and great bass with some good extension on the right recordings...

Yeah, I can give a try. I'm new to head-fi, but been in the hifibusiness for over 20 years now, so have been around the block before;-)

 

I'm gonna give a quick review when I get them, and then I go on holiday, planning to burn them in for about 200 hours before I check them again. Gonna use a Aune T1 and a Matrix M-Stage to review with, but I also have ordered a Schiit Lyr, but that won't get used untill I get back from holiday. So you must be patient with me...

Mine have number 003588.  No full review here, but I paired them with the Asgard 2, and life is beautiful.  Plenty of good controlled base to go with the other fine qualities of the annies.

I decided to listen to mine through my Valhalla a bit more before I sold the amp and I am liking the sound! Maybe the Annies are finally broken in all the way?  I wasn't too keen on the sound when I first tried the combo a while back but something has changed....

 

Anyone else have this combo at home that they can try? I even listened to the Musical Fidelity X-Can v2 last night on the same material to make sure I wasn't crazy and I stand by what I hear, the X-Can is a known good match for the AKG and I may prefer the Schiit to it!  Maybe NOT selling the Valhalla?

Hello everyone; new poster, long time lurker.

I currently own a Beyer T1 and recently I have been finding myself not listening to music as much and instead spending most of my time gaming or movies. I cant justify keeping the T1's for my uses and instead am thinking of a downgrade to an Annie possibly.

 

My question is how does the Annie compare? I am especially curious how the bass compares. I am more interested in Impact than how low it is able to go. I realize the K702 are not known for bass but it seems like the Annie has improved on this a little.

 

For reference I am using the less than ideal Asus Xonar STX with the T1. I also own the Denon D7000 and while nice I have found I don't really miss the bass on it compared to the T1.

 

Thank you for your time.

The bass on the Annie is tight and detailed can get low when called for. The impact is there for me. I can't really comment on anything else because I don't know how the T1 sounds.
