    upgrade from q701 and hd600, HE500 or K712?

    Finally decided to create a log in account after two years of searching through the forums.  I would like to upgrade from Q701 and HD600.  Was considering K712 or HE500.  I have not heard the HE500.  I have heard the HE400 and disliked its treble spike and recessed vocals.  From the readings of...

    Can someone tell me the difference between K7XX Massdrop Edition vs. K712?

    Hey guys, I know its too late to pick up the K7XX Massdrop anymore but I do have the intention of picking up a K712.    I read that the K7XX Massdrop edition is essentially a K702 with 3db of bass boost.

    Hi. Looking for something with a different "flavor" to add to my "stable (Senn HD650 and Ety hf3 IEM's).

    AKG K712PRO - "Individually Tested" claim

    First I want to say I'm a BIG AKG fan. I own Q701, K271 MKII, K495NC and have tested many more.    As a "back to work" treat for myself I orderd a pair of AKG K712PRO. I open the box and saw the line "Expect" written on the box. Opend the lid and it say "And discover".  And then I moved my...

    Mid-Fi Side-By-Side: Testing the Sennheiser HD 598, AKG-K712, and Philips Fidelio S2 IEMs Comparatively

    This is the ninth in my comparisons of three headphones, all using a group of 10 tests and scored by ranking their performance on each test as first, second, and third place.  I call this the "Test of the Mid-Fi's" -- each is a good, reasonably-priced entre' into high-quality audio.  ...
