I received my pair of K7xx today. Serial # is irrelevant to me, but I was probably very lucky to receive them so quickly and being one of the later purchasers. I do wish that my Geek Pulse order/backing could make a similar jump and bring me ahead of many others, but that is purely being selfish. I do truly wish that those Thinsulate-lined boots would have been added to my K7xx package since I will need those next week...
It's been a while/long time ago since I had the the original AKG K701, so I can't offer any impression compared to this one. I do have a pair of AKG K612 right here and now, it is even the limited "Made In Austria" version... I have quite enjoyed my version of the K612 related to my preferences, fairly neutral, expansive sound stage and very comfortable.
I wasn't expecting a grand difference between the K612 and K7xx. But what right out of the box immediately hit my brain was an even larger sound stage, more in width than depth. Deeper bass bass presentation, indicating that the K7xx presents more sub bass and probably more mid bass as well but without interfering too much with the crucial lower mid range. Treble seems similar extended but slightly more smooth sounding with the K7xx vs. K612. So IMO, overall a more consumer oriented sounding AKG K6/7xx release and absolutely in a positive way.
i have a k612 and i bought a k7xx ( my american friend bring it in mid january ) .
i want know if k7xx maintain naturalness of k612 of voice and instruments but with more mid-bass impact ( especially battery impact where IMO i found my k612 a bit lacking)
this questions can seem ridiculous because soon i have it , but my curiosity torture myself .. i think that this will make me feel better XD
thanks in advance
