Excerpt: We've put close to 80+ burn in hours on these so far, and have seen a noticeable change in audio reference. I've read that a solid 300 hours is needed in order to get the true performance of these phones. When they were pulled out of the box they sounded quite muddled. The mids were very held back. Vocals were forward but not quite where they should have been. I've seen a lot about the lacking bass of the K 702 and found that out of the box the bass was "noticeable".
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Forward Mids
Cons: 35mm Termination, Muddled Mids, No Bass Reference, Vocals Fall Off
Excerpt: These are very good quality headphones. They are a very good buy. I use them on my PC mostly for Gaming, listening to music while working and sometimes on my home stereo system to enjoy the best of my headphones. They are quite comfortable, the weight is well balanced. The only thing is the little bump on the strap mark my skull due to my lack of hair. All in all I am very please with my new headphones.
Excerpt: i owned (or once owned) several headphones, senn hd 580, hd 600, akg k501, k702, gardo r125i. at the very first beginning, since i got used to hd 580 hd 600, i really do not like it, it's terrible. after burn-in (more than 100 hours), the sound become much more sweet, and it become one of my favorite phones. <br /><br />excellent for chamber music, like piano solo.
Excerpt: Beware. They take a couple-hundred hours to break in. Until then, they can sound thin and a bit top-heavy. Once they settle down, these are first-rate. Transparent, revealing, musical, transporting.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: My trusty Denon AH1001 just died on me one day and I was looking to replace them and to go to a next level. After a lot of reading I decided to go for AKG 702 but didn't at first bought the proper amplifier (I was using total bithead ) so i was little bit disappointed. Then after tons of additional reading I decided to get Bellari HA540 headphone amplifier and wow... Properly fed AKG 702 will melt your soul.. Especially if you are after guitars and soul..

Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile
