Comparing any headphone to another is not considered silly in my book. Have you heard the AKG K712 Pro and do you own the HD800?
For 1/5th the price many will consider the K712 Pro to the HD800 especially looking at the frequency response and other charts. They are remarkably similar.
My review link on the K712 has been posted twice and linked by another users quote once in the past few pages of this very thread. If you Google search AKG K712 review, my review that appeared on Headfonics.com will be in the top few spots. I've also reviewed the HD800 in multiple magazines and media outlets.
"I believe that the K712 doesn't even begin to touch the HD800 sonic quality, therefore, I think it would be silly to tell anyone the K712 compares to the HD800". This is the clarified core of my statement, not that nobody should listen to both and see how different they are. Again, I apologize for the confusion and usage of the word. You misunderstood the context even though I tried to imply the core of the statement in the very next sentence about the sonic qualities between the K712, the HD700 and HD800. I should have phrased the sentence in a different, more clear manner. I apologize.
