The makassar wood finish just doesn't work. If you've already got a room full of similarly finished furniture (yuck!), then at least you've got an excuse.

Black anodized aluminium or something would be better.... but would probably increase the final price.... by a lot.
I HOPE (I really hope) that AKG did not include the headphone stand just to increase the price to make it sound like it's a very high end headphone.

Good to know! I hope I will like it when paired with FiiO E09K and E07K smily_headphones1.gif

I don't like any headphone stand design that touches the earpads because it offers less drying/hygiene

 

 

ROOM'S AUDIO LINE does it better

Agree! the HD-800 sub bass with the K-702 instrument separation, image and sound stage can lead true perfection. Let's cross our fingers, I hoping to move out of the K702.

Good point, looks like at AKG they were in the rush to get the big $$$$.

+1

The same here and I was just about to order the HD800.

 Keep my fingers crossed too...

You should have ordered the HD800 when the price was around 1000-1200USD in Europe... It does not make much sense now, especially if you really think K702 have better imaging and soundstage.

We shall all wait for David who did a fantastic job in comparing more than 50 flagship headphone to review and add these to his flagship headphone review list xD

I know those pre threads will eventually determine the price. I hope everybody here will start complain on the price, this way the price will go down to a normal price range, let's say for example $500.

 

High impedance phones are meant to avoid noise from noisy electronics, not provide good dynamics.

Low impedance phones do have dynamics potential as do high impedance phones.

1. If high impedance phones avoid noise from noisy electronics (noise floor), they'll provide a better dynamics.

2. The potential of the low impedance is out there, like the RS1, or the GMP 8.35 D Studio, but the today standard is higher for a current flagship hps.

 

The K-812 will need to compete with the treble of the Sony Qualia 010, and the subass of the HD-800 for studio work. This task is the most hard to do in the dynamic hps word!

1. If a low impedance phone pairs with very quiet electronics, does the high imp phone retain its dynamics advantage?

2. Agree. Lets see how the k812 fares

Excellent sounding headphone even when driven directly from my phone. If I would find a description of the sound signature, it would be very unlike Hd800 and T1 perception of netural. Very much a TH900 with more tamed bass and excellent frontal depth.

Front depth - I like that. It's one of the hardest things for a headphone to do.

Hmmm, Nomax also mentioned that they are rather in between HD800/T1 and TH900 than very close to HD800/T1...

^ Wait how much more tamed to be exact. Does sub regions go deep and low with some rumble or is it mostly fast punchy types??? Really hope that it is a great balance of just a slight touch of fast punchy mid bass with pretty deep subbass that has some rumble without bleeding into the rest of the sonic spectrum.

I hope there is no "punchy" bass going on with K812 Pro... That would be the exact opposite of very precise/analytical and neutral bass of HD800 with no hint of midbass emphasis. I hate midbass emphasis :tongue:
