Remember the good old days of HD600/650, DT880, K701 Trio. But it's time to look ahead. Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic and AKG all have their new flagship now (HD800, T1, K812), but they are not for someone with a limited budget on HP and also amps. So I always keep an eye on the 'quasi-flagships'. Here Sennheiser has HD700 and BD has T90 (which I found to be a great leap from the old trio and use now). But what about AKG? From the terminology, K702 and K712 should be the upgrade from the 701's, but by searching the Internet, I got the impression that they are more of modifications than upgrades? Did I miss something, or Just that AKG has a different market strategy than it's opponents?
