You're joking, right? Because this is completely non-informative (the use of the word 'detail' in that sentence is highly comical in it's own right). Neither does it tell us anything about the headphone nor does it work as a showing off.

 

Except you have a secret girlfriend called K 812, in which case I sincerely apologize and look forward to the 'details'.

I am highly skeptical to be honest... I mean there is no single headphone that is considered the very best by the majority of people, maybe except SR-009 but that's heavily supported by the fact that SR-009 cost 3-5x more than other high-end headphones (so they quite SHOULD be the best) and that the majority of people with SR-009 pair them with ultra high-end amplifiers which is not always true with dynamic flagships. So these would basically need to deliver near-SR-009 performance for HD800 price to be considered "the best" and not just "one from many".

Yes... I was saying this from the beginning, isnt it pretty obvious?

No more? No problem. This can already of 009

The K812 is telling you: Which grass and how much is growing.

If I were a salesman, I'd use this line as part of my pitch.

Soil-sampling technology explains the price, I guess.

When you hear it, you will understand the price. Two things, no more and no less: WOW and world class!

Just read the whole thread;you got to love the Austrians(even his only post in german was full of spelling mistakes etc.)but if this turns out to be a flagship and can deliver soundwise,I am going to buy it.
My HD800 needs some competition!

I've got a pair of 15 € modded Yamaha orthos that sound much better than the K 701, so the K812 truly have a ways to go to convince me of their 100x price.

 

Not to say I don't appreciate AKG coming up with new models - just that the trend for several years has been less quality for more money.

You are right. Not for everything, but for some.

Therefore, we go back to 1989. A world-class base. We build on it ... and now, 24 years later ... let them surprise you :o2smile:
