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.

 

ofc it's not that stupid and a you used a FOOD example :D u may not have known I was a cullinary Student years ago

 

let me share the gospel of food to headphone imagery

 

HIGH end headphones should be like a Prime Beef Tenderloin, the texture is flaw less, the marbleing is perfect, melts in the mouth yet... the taste... is... very much like a blank canvas surround by a beautiful Oak Picture Frame, there are hints of the beef, but the flavor is very VERY pure. The Nuances are perfect.  when you pair that Tenderloin with the right vairety of Wine and Sauces [or in this case Dacs and Amps] what you get is pure magic unlike anything else! And the brain know's the differance. 

 

That said, IMO TOTL headphones should be like that steak, flawless As texture and mouth feel of meat... depends purely on the quality of the cut and the marbleing. Any idiot can make a steak taste good, but your need the right cut and the right skills to get the right mouth feel! To get the Nuances you need Tenderloin, but you need to match it with the perfect wine and sauce! Other wise you'll only get the nuances and you'll miss the taste 

 

Flavor, like music, is composed of multiple elements. Taste, Mouth Feel, Texture, Smell and visuals. So a headphone should have the perfect, mouth feel, the perfect smell, and teh perfect texture, as those elements are the hardest to correct, the hardest to present perfectly.

 

Again that said, for ME the SOUL of my music is enriched by the Source and Amp that enhance the Headphones natrual qualities, 

 

I want the k812 to be like that steak, perfect in nunances, NOT like a Hamburger which... just tastes good! [and don't get me wrong I LOVE me some Hamburgers :3]

 

Now you want to talk food and music bro. Come at meh ;3

okay,

That was as far from my side. We hear again the HD1000.

I wish you much joy with the K812 - the show will be very great.

And do not forget: Listen with your heart.

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.

 

I personally dont care how they look like... What I do care for is that not so great-looking (p)leather and rather small cups =/ I dont see them beating HD800's soundstage tbh...

Indeed :/, going back to the HD700... I saw they where 40mm drivers and I laughed... you can't seriously sell ME a $1000 headphone with 40mm drivers... 

 

I'm worried these too might be smaller than the HD 800... which would be a bad thing 

 

I've always found more calrity in larger drivers than smaller...

Driver diameter = indicative of driver performance? think not.

True enough but how many TOTL cans do we see with small drivers? But the reality is though, bigger drivers produce a more realistic Sub Bass

The design looks on the low cost/end side, I hope they got a new drivers. Any specs around?

Anyone else notice we're playing these from iphones and portable devices? That's a little concerning, tbh.

Oh yea that's right good point! I mean nothing says HI FI like... "DOES not need an amp"

 

Speaking of which the ATH L3000 has it's own amp :O [must have it NOW q.q] 

post #524 of 746
I think THIS Phones can Play very well with an Amp and with portable devices!

That video makes me nervous.  Not looking good as of now.  Then again akg fb page DOES put pictures of famous people pretending to be rocking out to Q701s right out of an iphone so who knows.
