Impedance has little to do with efficiency. Lower impedance will make headphones easier to be driven with lower voltage source (portable source) because output wattage equal voltage times voltage divide by resistance. Efficiency means the amount of wattage that's converted into sound pressure by the headphone driver, so you can have a driver that has very low impedance, but only converts very little of that wattage into sound thus it has low efficiency. Drivers that has low impedance but also low efficiency are you typical speaker drivers.

Headphone spec usually has it listed by sensitivity. xxxdB sensitivity usually means at normal listening position the headphone will output xxxdB of 1KHz sound pressure if input power equals to 1mW.

As for 812.... it still looks like 701 to me only much better built... (too much bad memories from AKG's attempt to bank on 701 spin-offs..) I personally like the approach that Sennheiser took with HD800: scrap everything and design it new from ground up. That's really the way AKG should do if they still intend to get back into high-end market, especially when their past reputation in high-end full-size headphone has mostly gone down the drain after k1000 and k701.

Just my 2 cent.

Also, does anyone else see a blue light coming from the inside? Or is that just some kind of reflection.

I find it very interesting that AKG is now coming back into the high-end game, imo they can't afford to fail this one. It must be good!

 

Also was that earlier headphone Nomax posted an Ortho? Looked really cool. Something like that in HE-400 price range, with a slight edge in sound quality. Woah that would be nice.

According to him, it was just an old K812 prototype... Unfortunately.

Yes, the vid looks very stylistic, starting with the sweet gal, but I'm more horny about the drivers technology build quality and the specs.

I'm the most "horny" for innerfidelity, headroom or changstar measurement :-P

Isn't the whole K812's concept a stylistic choice?  :biggrin:

 

The emotional voice-over in the ad reminds me of ads for airline or life insurance companies.

With his warm, gentle and reassuring voice, the guy sounds like a priest or something... kinda ridiculous and typical for mass consumption advertising... :D

In my opinion the k812 is the right DIRECTION FOR AKG and we will see how can compare THIS New FLAGSHIP to beyerdynamic T1&sennheiser HD 800!regards nomax

It wouldn't be that much radical change as from hd6xx to hd8xx (2 digits different). It would be more significant if the series would be like 901.
