Just got an Oppo HA-1...to use mostly as DAC; but I figure I should take advantage, by trying my first decent pair of phones.

 

AKG K702/65 or K712Pro?

 

Thanks,

CD

The K 712 is an excellent can.  However at least in the U.S., the Q 701 offers the best value.

IMO the K712 doesn't really justify its price against the Q701, you would be better off with the Q701.

I recently re-bought the K702's.

 

 

Those I had about a year ago were made in Austria;

these are made in China.

 

Though it's based on memory, I have to say I like these more.

For one thing, the main reason I sold the first set was the lack

of bass.  These do not lack bass to my ears; it's very comparable

in fact to the bass of the K712's.  Seems like AKG might have

done some (unannounced) tweaking to the Made in China 702's

because I really don't recall the originals sounding this good.

 

And at about $225, IMO they're a fantastic deal.

 

(I owned the Q701's twice and really didn't like them very much

compared to the 702's and the 712's.)
