Thanks, that's a bit better, but when you add the GST/HST (or whatever the tax ripoff is called), it's still ridiculous.

I think one of the only weakness' of the K812 is its ability to portray microdynamics, especially with any instrument involving tension. (Springs, skins). I feel this is the only notable weakness of the headphone, it sounds - as many have said - fuzzy and kind of echoey with many resonant notes.

yep - noticed that when i was comparing it with the hd800

For me and in Case of k812 THERE IS NO WAY ARROUND!

 

 

Nomax, there are two too many AKG K812 for one man. I think you should spread those out over the globe! Maybe to the good ol' US ?:D

You're wrong. There aren't enough. He has at least three heads.

Or really got three to make sure at least one is distortion free. That said, I really hope mine has no issues. *fingers crossed*

Really hope it works out and the negative reviews are wrong. I'd like for there to be a flagship that I'd be interested in buying.

the reviews are what they is. what matters is if you like what you hear.

Recently compare My old T1 and friend's new K812, very impressive .

 

1. K812 is a very neutral headphone , its not kind of typical over-damping HD800's "boring" and "lean", but really pure to reflect front-end's sound.

p.s. I don't  mean HD800 is a bad headphone, but its' real advantage is some kind artificial "silver tone"  rather than that kind of "neutral".

 

2.K812 slight dry compare my T1, both have rather close size "head-stage", but T1 is more front-staging and diffused, K812 is more laid-back and focus,

Cant say which is better, but depend taste.

 

3.Hey, this headphone (K812) needs more Gain,  forgot about someone says K812's"tizzy", they just can't feed K812 good enough.

 

4.K812 is the most "pure" headphone ever heard, but i wouldn't buy it.

Ha Ha. I cannot understand how people can describe this headphones as tizzy, ringing, bothersome. That's simple wrong. Yeah, this is a reference headphone and bright sounding and when the recording is bothersome you hear it. When you want a warmer less accurate sound you can pair it with the Brocksieper EarMax SE. It has 20Ohm output impendance and silk the highs a little bit. But the best pairing for me is with Bryston BHA-1. Such a dynamic and great sound, amazing!
