AKG K812(?) Professional Headphones - coming soon - Page 9  

post #121 of 745

How easy are they to drive? The reason I didn't buy a HD800 was due to it being very dependant on the setup. 

 

If these are easy to drive as the Shure SRH 1840 for example (which sounds excellent on my Apogee One), then I'll buy it instantly.

Can I drive it from an Apogee One for example? If so, than 1300 euro is no problem for me.

I think you may be giving out advice a bit prematurely.

^ Yes.

 

Also, I really don't like the design. At all. There was a certain vintage look that made the K601/K701 look unique. These are bland. And 1300 euros for a hunk of plastic with a ring of metal? No thanks.

They seem to remind of something like Sony MDR-MA900. I was hoping for a successor to the K1000. Should I forget that..?

They're called k812 not 1012 so yes,forget about it

Not even. The MA900 had a unique bass-port reminiscent of the SA-5000.

This just has a generic plastic housing that doesn't seem special considering its TOTL status (if they are priced at 1300 euros).

1300€ for a plastic housing and pleather pads? That would be a... curagious... pricing. But except for some bits of the design (which don't look like ultra quality) and the name we don't know much. After all, it may still be sold for 400€ and not be intended to compete with the HD 800.

Who cares about plastic? You are going to use your headphones like a hammer or something? Hd800 are also made out of plastic and so what?
