AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 212

post #3166 of 3233

I was kidding. 

 

Anyway, I can't find any graphs, and these cans came and went.  And as far a graphs go, they can be very useful. I have mild tinnitus, and using graphs can isolate 'potential' problem areas.

You can extrapolate using Q701/K712 Pro graph .

230 pounds, I think that's about the standard price, no?

You can usually find these $350 anyway.

I see they've put the last pair up £20, the previous 4 were sold in 2 days so maybe they can

I might be just imagining things, but removing the two foam pads really took a veil off the sound also. There's quite a bit more attack and i seem to listen at a slightly lower volume now.

Interesting. It's an easy thing to change. I wonder what other people's thoughts are on it as well.

Will test it tomorrow! XD

Maybe later on hehe

UPDATE: Just tested it. IMO not a huge difference. More to come

UPDATE 2: Indeed it does get louder without the foam. I find it brighter as well.

UPDATE 3 [last]: Mid-bass suffers very very slightly without foam. Overall, the difference is subtle, although with the foam removed, things tend to sound very slightly airier.

So, in your opinion, do you feel like it improves the signature?

Very slightly. Unless you purely focus on the music otherwise, you won't notice the difference smily_headphones1.gif

Hello guys, i need a quick advise please.

My Rabbit (that little ******* ;-) ) bit my AKG K702 AE cable...

Which one is the right to buy? I've only found one cable at AKG : http://www.akg.com/EK300-1280.html?pid=56

I'm going to repair the ruined one, but with such an expensive Headphone i want a flawless cable..

 

Thx for your help :)

minion1990,

If you want a shorter cable you can also search for "AKG EK500s", it's a 5m (16.5ft) coiled cable (~$40 USD) that is shorter in coiled form than the stock EK300 cable.  There are more expensive 3rd party cables like the Oyaide HPC-X35 (3.5mm-miniXLR) and HPC-X62 (6.2mm-miniXLR) cables in 1.3m and 2.5m variants.  I only have the stock EK300 and EK500s cables so I can't really comment on how good/bad the Oyaide cables are.  

 

 

Anyone,

I'm looking to upgrade the amp for my Annies with an eye on "future proofing" a bit for something that can also handle say... the Alpha Dogs.  Any recommendations in the $250 USD range that will pair well with the Annies?  I'm looking at the Schiit Asgard 2, although I've also read that the Matrix M-Stage pairs well with the Annies.  I'm currently driving my Annies with a Audioengine D1 + Fiio E09k amp and they do an okay job (much better than just a Fiio E17 or Audioengine D1 alone).

What about the Schiit Vali? I also like the Matrix M-Stage quite a bit with mine, but the Vali gets a bit of nudge with the K702AE for me.

Got a replacement cable directly from the AKG Headquarter in Vienna for 19$
