NEW! AKG K812 - Page 14  

post #196 of 978

3-pin means it's not balanceable, unless you cut into the cup and split the grounds yourself, if I'm not mistaken?

Not balanced cabling. And not sure you'd want to drill into metal etc to do the mod lol!

Do you guys had the chance to check out the pads, I mean they'll fit the K-7xx series as well?

Doubtful, they don't look like 701 pad at all. Notice the 'D' shape which is designed to create a better seal.

Sorry for the confusion, I meant to the pad size and the locking mechanism.

They don't have 701 there. But pure guess work, I am not optimistic. The internal layout simply not the same as 701.

I don't like full formal reviews written after two minutes of listening..

Early impressions sound positive so far.

 

I'm looking forward to more comparisons with the HD800.  I speculate a tradeoff where the HD800 will still best them in soundstage but with the K812 having a fuller and more "musical" signature.

Basically guys, Nomax is right.

Seriously, strap on tight as AKG have released a monster of a headphone. A real real beauty. I almost cried when listening to it. 




The real judge of how good this headphone is will ultimately come when you get the chance to listen for yourself, but it's better than the T1's and better than the HD800 in my opinion. I have very rarely, if at all, described a headphones sound as beautiful but this is what this is. It's so clean, clear, resolving, weightly, full, dynamic, layered and above all natural. No artificial brightness, sibilance or peaks. Bass isn't light or under-energised. It's closer to the Sig Pro's in weight and quantity rather than the T1's. The soundstage is HD800 style wide. Definitely wider than the T1's. 

What really Impressed me. No that's a lie. What really scared me was how good it sounded out of my SGS I9000 smart phone (Voodoo sound). Wow. I can't see driveability being a problem with this headphone.


I agree with Ra97oR about the cable in that it could be more flashy/impressive but it's completely functional and I'm someone who likes thinner more easier to manage cables rather than the T1 type. Something like the Ultrasone Signature pro's cable is the best - could have done something like this. He explained about how this can be driven from an ipad for use when musicians mix/take ideas down on it (that's true) and when one considers that, the cable makes more sense. Overall build apart from that is very good.....

....might as well just write a review on listening impressions, rather than just type whatever I'm thinking. I'll be back shortly..
nomax has right!one reason more to Love nomax!

Guess his work here is done and AKG has ended his contract. Until next time Nomax. I hope every headphone company hires you for viral marketing when they're planning to reveal their next flagship.
