Akg K712 Vs Beyerdynamic DT990

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a new pair of headphones to go with my computer, and have narrowed my choices down to the Akg K712s and the Beyer DT990s. I, personally, lean towards the K712's, but wanted a second opinion. I will mainly use these for listening to music and gaming. Which do would be my better option?

I have owned both and ended up on the AKG K712 Pro because it sounds much more neutral than the DT990.  The DT990 sounds really fun, but has some emphasis on the upper treble that may be too fatiguing for some.

I actually read your review on it the other day. It was one of the reasons I really like them. Would you suggest another set of headphones over them? Like in that price range or less.

The beyer DT880 would be another good buy.

 

The AKG Q701 is another great choice if you want to save some money.

 

To me there is no substitute for the AKG K712 Pro in its price point.

 

Here are a few threads that you may not have seen:

I've looked at the Q701s. How do they stack up to the K712s?

This is covered in my review as well as the K712 Pro appreciation thread here:

I would say the Q701 is not as comfortable, slightly less bassy, and a little less clear in the midrange, but overall a very good headphone.
