AKG K812(?) Professional Headphones - coming soon - Page 29
Gear mentioned in this thread:
No specific word on technical aspects = old-hat technology + the eventual new marketing terms.
It's also quite apparent that the reason why the K812 exists is for AKG to have something expensive to list in their catalog after years of cheaper items. Note that the price difference between a K 701 and the K812 is massive - but note then that the gradual tweaking process on the K 701 (which lead to the K 702, K 712, etc.) had a disproportionate effect on the price of those offshoots. I suggest that it was paving the way for AKG to have something expensive in their lineup, and so I also suggest the price on the K812 is mostly made up of air.
