Hopefully you can see the difference between them:
Wow, bigger difference than I thought with the pads. You'd think that with the K712 pads you would actually get slightly more treble and LESS bass (than the annie) since your ears are probably a tiny bit further from the driver.
Now this alone is proof kind of that AKG can have the same part #s for parts that are actually quite different. If the K712 has less forward low mids than I'd probably prefer that. I need to read the entire review again.
Maybe there's a few Annie's out there with pads than look like the K712? Doubt it.
I bought some Anniversary pads back in June and they are identical to the Anniversary photos. I wonder how people could actually get the K712 pads? If I paid $80 for some K712 pads and got Anniversary pads i'd feel ripped off.
Any foam behind the outer grill on the K712? Probably not worth messing with.
I know it's obvious now, but is the driver behind the pads 100% identical to the Q701/Annie?
