Therefore I forgive. I'll say it again: The K812 breakfast all headphones with pad included. Stax ... and spits them out.
Man, they have no idea - they believe me. The K812 with his technique (top secret at the moment) is perhaps the quintessential headphones.
They wait for it - we're talking about it. Then when they get big eyes and can not believe what they hear.
Then we'll talk again.
So now your going to bash on UltraSone... honestly in the past they seemed to have different audiances, but Don't forget ultrasone has a number of very high end "iPod" friendly headphones they sell... it seems AKG is trying to cash in on that market!
But we will see how the impressions go, looking purely at the advertisement I have my doubts. Every buisness chooses an audiance before they make a product, the product is made for and marketed at that Audiance. It would seem the community at Head Fi and those of us round the world might not be in this Market... it could turn out that this is a great "portable" Flag Ship like the Ultrasone Signiture Dj Pro
The ePads and HeadBand look kinda pleathery, but they are actually SheepSkin Leather, and ofc let's not forget those headphones are well mostly plastic
So my point is, the build... is "good" but it's very plasticky... non the less as you see, he raves about the quality, and other Head Fi members who own them say the same. Not an audiophile head phone, but most likely the best for todays mobile world
I for see the k812 fitting in with those as their competition. We may see real leather on the k812, and it may be a more nuetral can.
And here is the catch... those cans apprently had a more neutral sound than the TH-900 so not to nock these "AudioPhile Mobile Headphones"
the K812 could be top notch, but I think our market want's to see more headphones like the Upcomoing LCD-X [said to be a more neutral balancd Auezede Ortho] or the HE 6 and HD 800. We want to see an AKG open back TOTL refrance can... not another iSlave refrance can :/
