The most negative posts have come from people who don't own the K812, and should be taken with a huge grain of salt. I would give much more weight on the comments and real life impressions of those who live with the K812 everyday over some who are little more than negative naysayers who can only find fault with a headphone based on one review. There are a number of pro reviews on the 812 out there now, and they have all been positive.
Is the 812 perfect, of course not, nor is any other headphone on the market. But these sound damn good and deserve to be heard before judged.

Having followed the thread from the beginning, positive impressions outnumber negative ones but not to the degree that you represent; and it's inaccurate to charge the negative impressions with inexperience and bad faith.

Very positive impressions, such as yours, outnumber very negative impressions, but that is to be expected in an appreciation thread (except for a few trolls). Bear in mind also that most of those who posted negative impressions or mixed reviews have unsubscribed already, which makes the balance seem more positive than actual public opinion.

The obvious fact is that very few here, having heard it, have decided to buy; and most who haven't tried it, have lost interest in favor of the new planars, which is a pity.

There is of course negative impressions and criticisms on every headphone, no headphone is immune from it.

 

I find it a pity as well. More people need to listen to a pair preferably on multiple systems before crossing it off their list. It's really not getting that much attention for a new and great sounding flagship. Maybe in time it will creep up in popularity. It's one of the best headphones I've heard and a headphone I am planning on getting eventually, it's the only flagship I am actually considering buying.

I think over time more and more people will listen to the K812 and there will probably be a tipping point when it becomes suddenly very popular. This happened with the HE-500. It started out very very slow, like the thread was dead for several months at a time during the rocky first year with crickets chirping in the back, and then boom, it exploded.

 

I bought the HE-500 like two months after release and I was very confused about why nobody talked about them on Head-Fi. Haha.

I believe it will be the case as well. I liked the HE-500 quite a bit, I am considering them. I think surges often happen because of good and somewhat hyped reviews from well respected reviewers and members. And then things can take off.

 

Reminds me of when I first got the K612 back in October, it was largely being overlooked when I got the headphone, now it's slowly experiencing a gain in popularity. People were curious but few were willing to take the plunge.
