  • Summary: I've owned these for the best part of a month now and have done some extensive listening with them both in extended listening sessions of several albums and of comparative listening sessions with with my HD650. I feel I am ready to comment on the qualities of these phones.
  • Pros: Spacious sound stage; realistic vocals; high level of detail; lightweight and comfortable for long sessions;
  • Cons: Can be a little on the cold side

  • Summary: I used this out of a USB Pico DAC -> Dynalo (Sheer Audio HA-006+) -> K702 using well ripped FLAC files   I really thought this was going to be better, but I really just do not like these headphones much at all. Probably my biggest complaint is the airyness and tone of the vocals.
  • Pros: Weight, Comfort, Soundstage
  • Cons: Tone, Fatiguing

  • Summary: And yet, of every headphone I've ever owned, heard, lived with, worked with...you name it at a sane price range, these are the ones that time and time and again I come back to when I'm testing out new gear.  That should basically say it all.
  • Pros: Dead neutral, detailed and revealing (though oddly enough, not on the same level as the much warmer HD-650s), extremely comfortable (for me anyhow)
  • Cons: Not "fun" to listen to. Cold, analytical and soulless poorly amped, hardly inviting even out of my best gear. Cheap plastic on band breaks easily.

  • Summary: So I have essentially re-p[purchased a pair of K702s, in as much as I previously owned and sold a pair of K701s   I had got rid of the K701s because I just wasn't using them much, due to the fact that I'm basically bald and found the bumps on the underside of the headband quite uncomfortable.
  • Pros: Comfort, build, sound.
  • Cons: Nothing that I can think of.

  • Summary: I like the AKG k702, they are pleasant to listen to, do a good job of positioning, very airy and open.  Sound is very balanced for the most part, but could use a little more bass (might also be my amp, I don't think my littledot has enough power for these or the hd800s)   I like them 99.7% as much...
  • Pros: really clear, good soundstage, comfortable
  • Cons: hard to drive

  • Summary: Just trying to pull the average up. can't believe someone would give reference headphones of this quality a 1.5 star rating overall. but, that, i suppose is the love/hate nature of the k701/k702.   personally, i feel they are wonderful headphones.
  • Pros: excellent value; wide soundstage; great rendering of acoustic instruments
  • Cons: lacks bass impact; shouty upper midrange; headband bumps are uncomfortable for some
