AKG K 702 review: AKG K 702
The K 702's creamy soft ear pads are so darn comfy it is easy to forget you're wearing headphones. In the end, we highly recommend this cushy, sweet-sounding set from AKG.

AKG K702
The AKG K702 are great, comfortable headphones for critical listening but are mediocre for everyday casual use. Their open design doesn't block any noise and leaks enough to be distracting. They're not made for commuting or to use at the gym but are ideal for appreciating high-quality audio in a quiet environment.

Just... holy moly. This pair is the whole nine yards.
For those of us who aren't working $10,000 a month jobs, these are the best thing for the price. Whereas the other alternative is the Sennheiser HD 800's, ($1k+?) honestly with all my disappointment with Sennheiser meeting less than desired quality with HD 202's and HD 280 Pro's (crap bass ranges fo...

Worth the Extra $$$?
I'm a former AKG K702 owner, a set of cans I appreciated (after a very long break in period - at least 120 hours of white noise and listening). They were very accurate, neutral and provided superb imagery: whatever is in the mix is there for the listener. My last set died (an accident, not a product...

K712 Pro. One of my favorite mid-fi headphones and my daily driver.
I loved this headphone out of the box and after owning it for a little over a year I still love it. It replaced an old pair of HD598s as my daily drivers and as gaming headphones. 1) Comfort is 10/10. Like a cloud pillow on your ears. 2) Staging is EXCELLENT. If an HD600/650/6XX is a nightclub the K...

My favorite headphones.
Love the bright sound signature on these headphones. The clamping force is perfect and suited for long listening or playing sessions. I do recommend pairing these with an amp to get better performance, even a modest one will bring out the clarity in these. Definitely a little lighter on the bass but...

I really wanted to love these...
Over the past year or so, I've been getting really into headphones. I like having a diverse range of headphones to fit different roles and situations, so my primary rotation consists of the Senn. HD58X, Beyerdynamic DT1990 Pros, Hifiman HE4XX, and the Meze 99 Noirs, all of which I highly recommend d...
