EDIT: I still remember the head fi days when the HD-650 fans complain about the K702 treble. Today the same HD-650 fans got the HD-800 and they're still complaining about the K702 treble. :k701smile:

Yeah that's about £1000. So we are looking at the same price of the HD800's.

The funny fact is that european people were able to get them for 1200usd or even cheaper in the past... so yeah,these k812 should be a giant killer to convince me and other luckier people here to switch.

I spoke with my AKG rep, and he said something pretty disheartening. I asked if he ever heard the HD800 and how he would stack the AKG to the HD800's. He answered something like this: "Ah, je te laisse faire ton analyse car tu connais mieu le monde des ecouteurs que moi; c'est très bien, mais je ne pourrais pas te dire si c'est mieu que les HD800 par contre. C'est proche à mon avis."

 

I'm really surprised by his comment, I'd expect him, as a rep, to really push his product.

 

Anyhow, he's right, I do have more experience than him so I can't wait to try them myself!

 

Here's a translation of what he said: "I'll let you do the comparison since you have more experience with headphones; I find them fantastic, but I wouldn't say it's better than the HD800's however. It's really close in my opinion."

 

I'm really hoping these are better than I expect, pushing the headphone market even further forward :)

Oh, I'll let you do your analysis because you know better now that the world of headphones me that's fine, but I could not tell you if it is better now than in the HD800 against. It's close to my opinion. "

 

dleblanc343, your translation is bettter.

Pre-ordering for K812 in NZ has begun, and to my surprise it actually costs more ($2,100) than the HD800 ($2,000)... interesting

The French seem to like things fine. Fine dining, wine, clothing.......So I'm surprised that I don't see much french folk into fine headphones. Or maybe I haven't looked hard enough. 

 

Any of you guys from France?
