That's a bad way to compare. He seriously needs to leave the Q701 alone for like a week. ONLY use the K712, THEN go back. Constant A/B switching does nothing. You've been so acclimated to the Q701, of course your tastes are gonna shift towards it. Especially when it comes to a tonal change like the Annie was to the Q701. Of course it's gonna come off as overly warm and smooth. To say it's undetailed and veiled... your ears need to leave that Q701 alone for awhile when you review other headphones.
It's hard seeing his impressions shift so wildly, even with the same headphone.
Guys...who on earth said anything about constantly switching between them? I listened to them for at least 3 hours before I even thought about doing an A/B switch. A/B comparisons are not good but sometimes are required.
Hey if you want, please type me up a 50 page report on how to properly leave impressions! It would really help!
Also..i've gotten used to the more bassy modded Q701 sound. If you haven't heard that then you'll think my impressions are way off the mark. Well...duh!
I can't say it enough but there is basically not much tonal change between the modded Q701 and K712 Pro. Feel free to say i'm wrong, but unless you have a modded Q701 you can't really say this.
BTW I'm not listening to these to do anyone any favors really. All I'm doing is listening for myself and to post impressions. If you don't like them all you do is ignore them.
I don't care if you think i'm wrong.
If you don't agree with them you can go out and buy a Q701 and mod it and compare it.
When I listen to this K712 it basically sounds like my modded Q701 with minor tweaks. It sounds really good. What were you wanting me to say? Maybe that it's super awesome and SOOOOO much better than that crappy Q701.
