AKG K812(?) Professional Headphones - coming soon - Page 34  

post #496 of 746

I dont mean to be an ass since English was not always my first language (born in HK, China). But oh man my head is hurting from this thread lol.

 

Will check out the new video when I get out of work though (Youtube is blocked here >.>)

Forget the promo. Let's see some unbiased comparative measurements.

That's the problem. With a HD800 and 009 they hear with your head - listen - listen and hear and feel nothing

and so terribly Olivia Newton John

they listen with the K812, they feel the belly and they will love it and this Feeling is great. so great that it almost does not matter, youtube sound or ...

only almost - okay?

I want to say: User vid is right with his example. Many headphones could give us everything possible quality - but unfortunately little heart.

Therefore deliberately my example with Xanadu.

 

logical, not the youtube sound, original music:L3000::L3000::L3000:

but it would not matter - maybe in 100 years they would not understand

 

yea the whole point of a TOTL can is that is should be very... brain listeny! It needs to be analytical and super resolving, then you pair it with a gorgeous high end tube and BAM you got the brain happy with detail, and the heart is happy with those SOULFUL 2nd harmonics :3

 

Also... some one want to give us an apromixation on size based on some "crainal" averages

I sincerely hope that your implication is not as racist as it appears to be...

I saw the video just to check the cups from the inside... No luck.

 

On the other hand, the video helped in comparing sizes of x7xx and K812 cups. They look identical, unfortunately, I was expecting something more spacious =/

Le post was 0%racist. We're all the same on the inside and all men are created equal. Too bad I can't say the same for headphones. And damn. They do look tiny.

yea... I say we clog that fool

 

anyways... watched the video, it was posted today on the AKGProductions Page, they are calling them "superior" refrance headphones. to "give you the purest sound possible, to hear even the smallest detail]

 

GOOD JOB GUYS, sounds like uhh my $250 DT 880s :D nice going there. 

 

So I watched what is labled as a "HD 800 Offical Video Add" or something on uTube. All of them sound horrid, but the add prensentation... is MANY steps above the k812 add. The K812 remind us of... well beats, The HD 800 add was... more of a lecture. a 3min long narated video emphasising, "we took the time" the k812... I dunno... don't need to be 3mins long but looking like your targeting the modern consumer to much!

If it were that easy - then yes. But that's not that simple. Our head is not stupid.

You only have one chance:
You can eat your steak with three sauces until the cook tells them that steak. But you can also eat steak.

Depth also looks more or less the same, though slightly little more "truncated cone-shaped"... Hmmm.

Now we need a new thread with michaelxray's best quotes. My favourite two so far:

"They listen with your head"

and

"You can eat your steak with three sauces until the cook tells them that steak. But you can also eat steak."

I'm so totally clueless what that's supposed to mean.

lol.. imagine if these use the same drivers as either K550 or K712. Just with a different enclosure for different sound signature >.>

 

Maybe AKG finally made a metal version of the K7xx series?

 

Will be interesting to see what the price of these really settle at, and if its worth it.

 

The aesthetics are growing on me though.

But they dont seem like the aesthetics of a $1500 headphone.
