Can you pm me contact details? I'd quite like to have a new stock cable. I seem to have lost mine. (Been using an aftermarket cable.)

Thanks

Nice. I thought for a second I was going to have to order a new one because my Blue Dragon V2 cable was acting up and I couldn't find the original.

 

I'm going to have to send that cable back to have it fixed because it cuts in and out when sitting in the K702. Anyone had to do this?

I don't think that AKG/Harman Austria is the right place to ask for you.

I just wrote to service@akg.com and then they connected me to a person in my country. Since AKG was funded in Vienna it was relatively easy for me. 

The code for the cable should be 5021876 (told from an akg employee) or 2458M97060 (from the K702 AE pdf)

I have a quick question; I just bought the non-Anniversary Edition K702, and was wondering what the best method of driving it currently is (for a $150 budget).  I mainly will be using it for PC gaming (FPS mostly) and listening to music (epica, rock, dubstep and other electronic music), and so far was considering the Sound Blaster Zx sound card, but after reading a bit on these forums/elsewhere, I thought I would ask if there is a better alternative (i.e. a dedicated amp or something).  Hopefully posting here isn't a problem (even though I don't have the Anniversary Edition K702's); I made a post in the Computer Audio forum and they linked me here.  I'm relatively new to the high-end sound world, so any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

P.S.

I must admit, I didn't want to read all 213 pages of this thread in the hope to find an answer..so my apologies if this question has already been asked elsewhere; I couldn't find it with my searches lol.

FiiO E07K and E09K combo is what I am using although I am getting a tube soon for more warmth IMO, the K702/65 still lacks warm to me

How long have you been using your K702?  I've heard that it doesn't "warm up" (although I'm not 100% positive what that means..I'm just assuming that everything smoothes out and doesn't sound as tinny or whatever) until it's been used for 300+ hours; is that what you are experiencing, or are you referring to something else?  Thanks for the help.

Been using it for more than 400 hours now, got them used so the original user may have used it about 100 - 200 hours. I personally would prefer more warmth from the K702/65 smily_headphones1.gif

My stock mini XLR to 3.5mm just stopped working... I think it might have to with frequent inserting/ejecting.

 

That said, which mini XLR to 3.5mm cable do you guys recommend for annie? Seems like there are variety of selections available though I'm not sure which one to choose from.

 

Thanks, help would be appreciated it.

Wow, my eyes are red, trying to read  all 200+ pages of this thread.   After 13 pages, I skipped ahead.. Super info in this thread too. Trying to make up my mind on the Q701/K702 and now the Annv.

.

I slipped off where a poster was recommending the E18 to power the K702 Annv. 

 

Anybody running the E18 and the Annv.? If so, how did the E18 do?

 

I took some advice, and got the O2-ODAC too for a desktop.. Got the K550s, and haven't opened them yet. 

 

Also, I tried to see the answer to "Are the K702 Annv. made in Austria exclusively? But,  got sidetrack..

I am a 3 month old noob too, but learning by searching and reading.. 

 

The reason I asked those questions is because I am getting ready to pull the trigger on the Q701 or K702, or the Annv.. Trying to make the best pick.. Money wise, the Q701 seems like the better deal. 40% more, and I can get the Annv..

 

Thanks in advance,

You might want to avoid pairing all these thinner sounding headphone with the O2 though @.@ they may not be the best pairing smily_headphones1.gif look into Philips X1

K702 ANV is not that thin , no problem with O²  (but i don't have any problem with the standard K702 with O² so :p)

Thanks for that. From what I understand, you are saying I am okay with the O2 with the K702 ANV or even the plain K702...  Cool

 

Also, I see you have the K702 ANV, and I am leaning big time on getting it. I see the K712 is the exact same price, does either one of these have an edge over one another?

 

I know the K702 ANV and the K712  have a edge over the Q701. ( I think) 

 

Thanks

Well the K712 Pro bundle is more generous you have a bag transport , and two set of cables . But if you prefer K702 ANV color sheme go with it (or for the limited thing ) .

 

I don't think that K702 ANV/K712 have and edge  they are just a different flavor of K70X/Q701 . You can still buy regular K70X/Q701 and later buy K712 pro pads or do the bass mod port etc .
