The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread - Page 150

post #2236 of 3355

I am not going to be able to conduct the unmodded HD800 vs the K712 Pro review, but thanks to those that have given their impressions here in this thread.

 

Every time I listen to the K712 Pro I am impressed with the detail and soundstage.  They are definitely keepers until I can move up to the HD800.

Like I've alluded to earlier, I owned the HD800 before this and this is still satisfying enough to hold me over for a few months until I can upgrade again.  Though, I'll likely go the K812 route next depending on impressions.

They're made in Austria.

Might be that you got an older stock.

I got mine from Amazon (US) - they're the real deal.

I've owned them before (not this exact pair lol!), plus

the K702's. 

 

I agree it's important to be careful about counterfeits, though.

Very important.

Anyone else think they sound weird with movies or dialogue?  Perfect for everything else.

post #2240 of 3355

^Not at all, these have actually been my favorites for movies and such thus far.

 

What kind of source are you using when watching movies?

I love mine for movies and gaming.  Perhaps you could elaborate for us and provide a specific example?

YOUR OPINIONS NEEDED:

 

Bought the 712 for my son from a very reputable dealer on EBay. Here are some photos of the box and an insert (in Chinese) that I am a bit confused with. IS this HP made in Austria WITH Chinese-made parts? Why not this insert in German? Any of you find a similar insert with your AKG 712?

The sound of the HP far surpasses the 701, 702, Anniversaries and Q701. More on that later. Right now I am more interested in opinions regarding this Chinese insert. Haven't read much about fakes of this HP. Thank you.

Those Chinese words is just a translation from the English. The AKG K712 pro is made in Australia but the AKG K612 Pro is probably made in China that's why they need two language eh?

First China...now Australia.   I'm not buying another AKG headphone unless its made in Europe.  :D

I think it should be genuine.

 

 

Watch this youtube clip at HD quality and stop at 9:02, I think it looks the same as your card with Chinese words.

The same goes for this video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THhGvewEo5M

Watch at full HD, zoom in at 0:32, and you will notice it is the same.

 

 

I think it need Chinese words because K612 Pro is made in China. The card is printed for both use for k712 pro and k612 pro.

Thank you all, but... The 612 is, could be, made in China, but what does that have to do with the 712Pro box (packaged in Austria or in China?)

having a paper with Chinese/English parts explanations? The SKU numbers for the 612 and 712 are on this sheet. Have any of you 712 owners found

a similar insert in your box when you opened it?

post #2247 of 3355

I think you should contact AKG about it.

The pair I bought off Amazon from a company in Germany had the same card inside.
