AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 220

post #3286 of 3294

I am thinking about selling my annies since recently got a pair of HD800s. Anyone in NYC interested? I guess I should just put up an ad on the for sale section.

Curious because I might order a pair and would like to hear some thoughts before doing so.

Thanks

 

Can't comment on the K702, but putting the Q701 pads on the K702 65AE makes them sound really really similar in sound. It would be impossible to hear a difference if you weren't carefully listening between the two.

Feel like selling my Annie too and get the Philips X2 for more fun factor since I already have the similar sound signature as Annie (H6). But I am affraid that it will be hard to find the Annie back in the future frown.gif

Hey guys I used my 65 Annie with my note 3 phone for the first time. It doesn't fit snugly buy wow. With FLAC plus dfx sound on my android it sounded great. I'm curious now, I never got a mini portable amp. Would it be a HUGE difference?

Already compared to my cheap iPhone 5 headphones things were brighter and fuller. Almost like my computer soundblaster omni amp

Improved clarity, dynamic, soundstage is expected when amped right smily_headphones1.gif

Basically I've been hearing grinding noises from my annie for both sides whenever I make any head movements such as simple tilting. I'm not sure the right word to use for this particular noise but it's similar to what you hear from friction noises.

I can't really pinpoint exactly where these noises are coming from but if I hold the ring part (the part marked with red rectangle below) while moving my head I won't hear those noises.

As a temporary solution, I have to wiggle the ring part around for few seconds before it "settles down" and hence makes no such noises when I move my head again. Though the noise will come back when I take the can off from my head and put them back on.

I've been using this can for nearly 2 years and this is the first time happening. I feel like the parts are not defective but instead it's worn out due to continues usage over the years (literally everyday with long listening sections).

 

I might be asking for impossible but is there a way to fix this? I thought of contacting repair department though I doubt they'll be able to offer a repair service or even better, replacement due to heavy usage.

Did you manage to solve the problem? I've been experiencieng the same issue in the right eracup... I'm wondering if there's an easy solution.

I fix it... Just opened part 21 and then tried to remove 23 unsuccessfully, but somehow I manage to fit better parts 23 and 20 together, now it doesn't make friction noise, apparently the union between them was responsible for the noise.

Sorry for my Naive response what do you mean by soundstage? Really interested now, is the batter life on those $120 amps that people had in this thread that are more carry as you go good enough or do they die after a few (I hate carrying too many things)

Soundstage (in my definition) is how big the room is for the music. The bigger the soundstage is usually better. You don't want things to sound "in your head" and congested wink.gif

As for portable amplifier's battery life, you are most likely going to charge it every night specially when driving power hungry headphones such as the K702/65. However, I would highly recommend desktop amp over portable amp for the K702/65. Unless you are looking at E12 smily_headphones1.gif

Hope it helps
