AKG K812(?) Professional Headphones - coming soon - Page 29  

post #421 of 746

I'm actually pretty excited about this. Good to hear. I'll be watching this closely.

Maybe they're stuffing K1000 drivers in a smaller housing. I know someone who did that on a smaller donor shell. One can dream.

Considering K1000s are basically speakers on your head, I dont think these would be the same thing o_O

The cups look kind of small in this picture, allmost like an on-ear or semi on-ear.

Exactly my thoughts... Pleather pads and almost on-ear design =/

This is the worst kind of viral marketing I've seen to date.

What viral marketing?

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.

Nomax, knowing an 'insider' and spilling a few leaks here and there. They could've chosen someone a lot easier to understand.

Oh jeez...

 

Less than a week from October 9th. I guess more leaks will come..... >.>

They remind me old Akg K240 and K340. Small cups, leather pads, metal rings. Maybe they'll get back the famous sound of those too. I hope at least.:smile:

Harman's agressive marketing...

My friend told me exactly this... If true, I have almost zero interest in the headphone. Still, I will be waiting for a measurement.
