NEW! AKG K812 - Page 19  

post #271 of 978

Is that really so great that so far no listener think it is worse than HD800, T1 or TH900?

post #272 of 978

Funny thing is, I agree with most part about Qualia, for that money you just build speaker system, or, like David wrote, buy many differ headphones, but...Even with all faults they may have, they still exceptional.

Hope they don't end up with the same grade!

Does the release date confirmed? The end of Oct is for pre order or for sale?

post #274 of 978

I thought in UK it is the end of Nov is when it is available for sale.

The K-812 price is just to much, if they want to compete with the HD-800 they should lower the price. You can get the Adam A7X for less as new!

In UK the AKG costs the same as HD800. Plus at least it comes with a stand.

Something around 10 weeks and they should be available up here to.

If AKGs will be just as good as HD800, they can compete with them effortlessly, because 812 Pro are waaay more efficient and you wouldn't have to buy megabuck amp to drive them properly.

10 weeks...that's really a long time to wait. Hope the low impedance can bring ease in matching AMPs that I don't need to change my HDVD800.

The HDVD800 will not be the right amp, because of its High output impedance when I recall right somewhere around 30 Ohm which would be a bad damping factor of 1 for the K812. This wiill probably lead to an uneven frequency response.

Oh really? I am using HDVD800 with W3000ANV at the middle gain level and feel it's better than pairs with HA5000. So I thought it might be adaptable to lower impedance headphones by adjust the gain level.

 

I feel K812 would be similar to HE-6, low impedance, but a electric current eater.

I've recently come to this conclusion myself about headphones. Speakers in the $600-$800 range really beat just about every headphone around.

Too bad everyone else has to listen when you listen.

I actually found that to be opposite. Even the most expensive pair of speaker can't seems to sound as detail as a pair of headphone, same way a pair of headphone will never have as good a soundstage as a pair of speakers or have the bass experienced by your whole body.

Certainly the case to some extent with any open headphone.
