People owning the 812s at this point is rarer than winter's thunder!  So, it's gonna be kind of a lonely, barren December/January before we get trustworthy impressions from the heavy hitters...if Tyll Hertsen's hasn't scared them away yet, Hehehe!

Comfort on the HD800 is high, but I do feel pressure around my jaw. That's not the case with the K812.

I honestly think we shouldn't directly compare the K812 to the HD800 in sonic performance. They are both VERY capable high fidelity HPs. The K812 has great low-end response regardless of power source. The beautiful AKG midrange is more magical than any AKG headphones I've used.

I know...for all the comfort of the HD800s, the pressure on the jaw area is kind of annoying.  If the 812s are similar to the HD800s but with better bass, that would be quite something even if Tyll doesn't care for them.

What kind of pressure on the jaw area ? If you want pressure buy an Audeze :D

Sorry but for me the HD800 is the most comfortable headphone I ever had.

 

Sorry for OT

That's what I've been wanting to hear. So they have that fantastic AKG midrange that I fell in love with. True, I don't it will be the best to compare them in terms of sonic character. They are different beasts in terms of sound signature from what I gather. Your going to have people arguing which is better based heavily on preference, system synergy, and variations of hearing. Have you tried them on the WA7?

I just shot the WA7 for our review so I'll have it set up again this weekend for some listening impressions. Jack is a big fan of AKG as well and he want to know how the WA7 pairs.

since the driver is so big, the cups have to be big in order to accommodate them.  So , that bigness tends to impinge into the jaw area.  Maybe pressure is not the right way...rubbing feeling is more like it.  The most comfortable headphones I have are the TH900, T1, T5p, and (after much bending and effort on my part) the ATH3000anv.  Even though the HD800s are said by many to be the most comfortable, they are okay in my book, but not the most comfortable in my book...and you are right about the Audezes, even though the X/CXs are more comfortable than the LCD2/3, but heavy (i.e., they feel like a dead dog is lying on your head...and the pressure on the ears is vice-like).

:D ... LOL

 

But your are right the cups are pretty big from HD800 and I'm with you that the T1 is one of the most comfortable headphone as well. And yes the LCD-X is much better than LCD-2 in term of comfort.

Good question, and a good topic for a spin off thread. Do it!

www.razordogaudio.com put on their FB that they have these in stock now. I think they're the first US Seller to have them in stock.

You're right, Vs the 800s is on priority for most of the people's here. For me will be great if you can compare them to whatever other hps you have there. Please keep us updated on your impression. The photo for your review looks great!

That's what i'm waiting for , for so long *___*  Is it sweeter than K501s magical Midrange? I was dissapointed with everything, that came after the K501. K601, 701 etc. were so bad compared to the older models (K400 & K501). I thought the magic died . . . so there's still hope? ;D Now i'm excited <3
