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.
Summary: Background information:
I am a hobbyist, part-time geek, audio enthusiast who likes high fidelity gear (or just whatever I can afford on the day). You'll find me messing around in Sonar Platinum, EWQL Virtual instruments and other wonderful music production programs.
Pros: Open-back design allows excess frequencies bleed out
Cons: Bass inaccurate when compared to other reference speakers
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.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Spacious sound stage; realistic vocals; high level of detail; lightweight and comfortable for long sessions;
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.
