AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 222

post #3316 of 3321
Hey guys got the creative X7 LE

Which would be the right settings for this?



Normal gain (less than 600ohm)
High gain(300-600 ohm)

Still not sure what direct play does, but I have an adapter to fit I to the bigger jacket would that be smarter?

I think so.

Yet another revelation serving as evidence of K712+small bass boost=Massdrop K7XX.

I just got my K702 Annies (2014 version that came with K712 style pads) back from Tyll at Inner Fidelity. I sent them in for measurement as part of the Volunteer Headphones for Measurement program he has going. I don't see the measurements posted on his site yet, but he did include a print out in the box when he returned my cans.

 

Just eyeballing it, it looks like they're nearly identical to the K712s. I don't have it in front of me at the moment, but if I remember correctly, the only noticeable difference was the Annies had slightly better %THD+noise @ 100dB. I'd like to get a digital copy of the measurements and overlay them for a more precise comparison. Hopefully Tyll uploads them soon. If not, I can scan my copy for you guys, although I'd want to run it by Tyll first in case there's some reason he's holding off on sharing his results.

Cool findings! I've heard from a few people they later versions are identical to the K712. Maybe I should contact Tyll to send out my early production set.

Yeah, I wonder if Tyll just hasn't uploaded the results because it seems they're basically the same cans as the K712s.

 

You should! I'm sure a lot of people (myself included) would love to see the results. And for what it's worth, Tyll took great care of my headphones. As long as you package them well you shouldn't have any problems (ziplock bag + a few layers of bubble wrap as per Tyll's instructions worked well for me).

He typically takes a few weeks and updates everything at once on the site. So it'll probably show up in the next batch.
