Hi guys,

 

New to this forums and my first posting.

 

I am contemplating whether to get the AKG K612 Pro or the K712 Pro.

 

Considering the K712 is slightly more than double the price of the K612 (at least in my country), is choosing the K712 over the K612 a no-brainer?

 

These headphones will mainly be used for gaming as well as for listening to classical jazz & blues tunes.

 

Any help will be much appreciated, thank you!

Actually the K712 is only slightly better than the K612 overall, enough for me to favor them but not worth double the price. The K612 does do somethings better such as it's more transparent and has a more balanced and neutral sound. It's more forward in the mids than the K712. I think the K612 would be better for you considering your genres and the K712 is only slightly better for gaming than the K612. The K712 isn't really worth the extra cost. So I would suggest the K612 to you personally.

Thanks for your reply Kman,

 

I think I will give the K612 a go first then and then upgrade later.
