I figured since this is the AKG K712 Pro appreciation thread I would post another track that is a joy to listen to on just about any decent headphone especially the K712.
Arne Domnerus & Gustaf Sjokvist's Hymm of Freedom. Just awesome and relaxing.
I hope people are not shying away from the K712 Pro because they think it will not sound any better than what they have tried thus far. It really is a headphone worth listening to regardless if the fact that it is somewhat of a rehash of AKG's other headphones. The K701 and Q701 for example receive great praise already and that is with the uncomfortable headband and lack of bass. Imagine that those problems are not fixed because they have been adequately addressed.
It might not be a huge improvement over the already great K701 and Q701, but the improvements are well worth a listen and an in-person judgement. I see a ton of users judging the K712 Pro without even hearing it. That becomes both an non-subjective and non-objective opinion which is not worth anything in my book.
That said it sure opens my ears to more headphones and less judgement about headphones I have not heard.
It is pretty important to actual listen to a device that is designed to deliver audio to your ears.
Hope you all have a great weekend whatever you may be listening to out there.
Hey, do you think you can bribe someone to test the bass port mod? Ok, maybe not on the K712...
Loving it on my Q701!!
I totally agree with what you said. People were very critical of the Q701 when it was announced and I found it to be a nice improvement over the K702. I really do think AKG watches these forums and listens to people's comments.
Someday i'll try the K712 despite not being a fan of the Annie.
