The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread - Page 160

post #2386 of 4651

Apologies if this has already been posted (it's pretty recent): http://earmass.com/2013/11/24/akg-k712pro-the-wait-is-over/

There are times where I don't believe in damping factor but I do find IEMs, especially BA, tend to sound different with damping factor.
post #2388 of 4651

And headphones with impedance vs. frequency curves that vary wildly may sound different based on damping factor right? The K712 has an interesting graph that is relatively flat but then shoots up dramatically in the high treble.

Anyway, I'm really excited to eventually get the Crack and experiment with all my cans. I expect the K712 to sound decent out of the Crack regardless but it will be interesting to see if there is any audible difference from my 0.1 ohm output impedance Lake People G109.

I did a comparison the first time I got my Annie between E07K and E09K. Both sound similar. Treble don't seem to change either but the E09K do sound better due to more power :)

is the Portaphile 627x any good to be used with the AKG K712?

 

if not would you recommend one to be used with that HP.

 

Thanks

Thanks everyone for the advice on getting the K712. They simply rock!

Just got my K712.  Anyone else had issues trying to remove the stock cable?  I'm afraid I'll break it if I push in the button and tug any harder.

Did you post a personal review somewhere? Don't be shy ;)

Hello Bill! I'm Bill (some of my friends calls me Bill)! Nice to meet you! tongue.gif

To remove the cable from the K712 itself, takes a lil force. I recommend not to keep on removing them too as it may damage the connect smily_headphones1.gif

The orange cable that came with my K712 snaps in and out really easily. The coiled black cable, however, is as you describe. It feels like it shouldn't take so much force to insert and remove it. Just be careful while you're doing it.

My Annie requires a lil force... Or am I just over reacting xD

ugghhh I want these. I am becoming a soundstage head and I think these will do the trick. I know they are wide but do they have depth?

The only other I've tried that has as much and/or more is the Sennheiser HD-800. The 712 keeps up with it, quite surprisingly, in many areas. I run mine from a speaker amp and that "could (?)" be making a difference.

Depth is very good, but this depends a lot on the DAC IMO. Modi is very good for the Q701 and got that right for sure.

When I compared the two the modded Q701 seemed to have slightly better depth.

I think it's partly due to the mod. Could get similar results on the K712, but I don't think the mod will work on the K712 very well.

 

If you want a large soundstage I'd rank the AKGs in size as follows:

 

K501 > K 701/K702 > Q701 > K712 > K601

 

To me, a large soundstage is not that import but I'm more concerned which one is the most accurate/true to the recording.
