    ..i did many things with my k 712:

    - changed the Foam from 702 to 712, too
    - made biwireing
    - changed earpads
    - a lot of experiments with different foams

    At the end: playing more in the foreground but at the end muddy!
    I cant stand it to buy a product which includes to DIY...bad job AKG.

    Something i must say: the K 712 is not a bad Player. I would not go back to K702. Best thing to say about the K 712 is, that this HP is an allrounder. But i am locking forward :)

    K812, K872 are another league over!
    K702 (K701, Q701, K712) have lesser treble than K812 for me.

    K712 - Make a test, use angled K701 pads and listen!

    Well you know...
    No matter how you make things, someone might come and say you've done it wrong.

    For some reason Tyll is kind of blamed for the reputation of the AKG K812 but if you read his review you'll find many good things like these:

    Good reviews should always be taken in context of the reviewer's personal preferences.
    Most of us know Tyll has a preference for warm and relatively soft sounding headphones, and the AKG K812 is pretty much in the opposite direction.

    ...good point, good level :)

    I respect others' opinions. I will do my own testing to confirm whether or not I will adopt said opinion into my brain's stable of opinions. Blind faith or rapid agreement is folly.

    Hi Me x3,

    thx for that summary. Hm, when he is a Softer, so why does he not point out that fact? He makes the thing very unclear...and people like me are maximum confused.

    I really like the AKG K812 on Questyle QP1R and Lotoo Paw Gold Diana. Great big soundstage with great detail and liveliness!
