  • 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.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Bump Strap Mark Skull

  • Excerpt: i am using these headphones mostly with my ipod and computer with a art headamp4 amplifier. ocasionaly with my portable jvc sound micrsystem and ocasionally with mcintosh c32 preamplifier. it just works great, nice low and high frequencies to my ears. the headphones are light enough to keep a few hours using them. i still think they will improve as i have used them for just about 10hours.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

  • Excerpt: I love these. The sound is great, especially after 100 hours or so of burn in. It is not great for portable devices because it needs a decent headphone amplifier to properly power it.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Great Sound

  • Summary: Build Quality These are built very much the same as the previous K701, K702, and Q701. Lots of rugged plastic, a leather headband, and velour pad. The removable cable seems to be slightly less thick than the previous iterations. Although I wouldn't be throwing these things around or using them outside, the combination of materials and assembly quality make for a very well built can.
  • Pros: signature, build, comfort, value
  • Cons: detail, soundstage, sparse packaging and extras considering it's a limited edition

  • Summary: Compared to Q701: (most of this has already been mentioned in other reviews)   More forward sounding and upfront, except for upper mids (and most female vocals) Warmer and fuller sounding than Q701, but not by much. Sounds slightly more muffled and not as clear. Imaging seems better. I think my brain is just fooled due to flat pads and a warmer sound signature. Way less treble and upper mids took a nose drive. Sounds darker than MY HD-650. Weird.
  • Pros: Slightly fuller sounding than Q701
  • Cons: Less treble and upper mids. Sounds too dark almost.

  • 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.  and, at $260 street price at time of this posting, you'd be hard pressed to find a better sounding pair for the money.   they are a little light in bass impact, and a little strong in the upper mid (female vocal range).
  • Pros: excellent value; wide soundstage; great rendering of acoustic instruments
  • Cons: lacks bass impact; shouty upper midrange; headband bumps are uncomfortable for some

  • 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.   I had always intended to put these and the HD650 against each other and sell one, as I had thought it would be an indulgence to keep two expensive open circumaural home-listening 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

Very accurate, excellent headphones

  • Excerpt: I product music using a small studio setup in my home office. Even though I prefer to use my monitors there are times that I need to use headphones (especially later at night). After doing a lot of research I finally settled on these phones as most reviews talked about the accuracy of their reproduction. I have to say that I am very impressed with the results. I can mix and master using these phones and the results when checked on my monitors are nearly identical.
  • Pros: Accurate Reproduction, Flat Response, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Head band uncomfortable

Clean sounding headphone

  • Excerpt: K702 is a pair of very clean sounding headphone compare to SR60. You can hear subtle sound and individual instrument more easily on K702. Bass on K702 is a little bit less weight than SR60 but it's punchy enough. The human voice on K702 will not be as popped out as SR60 but it sounds more natural and realistic. I am not using any headphone amp. The sources are laptop/desktop/NAD320Bee. K702 sounds much better on 320bee.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight

  • Summary: So, I'm listening to the K702 65th Aniv cans, through the ECBA, and they're not bad. In fact, they're mostly the same as the regular Q/K701s, with a little more bass extension, less grain (likely better THD numbers), and cooler looks. They probably cherry-picked the best transducers and played with the foam in front of the baffle. No biggie. "Evolutionary, not revolutionary" is the phrase that comes to mind. Very solid cans and well worth the $350 I paid.
  • Pros: Overall, very competent
  • Cons: They're still huge suckers
