AKG K712 Pro Headphone

Sound & Vision Magazine
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Headphone shoppers should never forget that sound quality should always be balanced with comfort. Sure, sound is the thing, but you’d be unwise to assume all headphones are equally comfy. I wish.

  • Summary: AKG K712 Pro Review   This is a review I have put off for a long time, I've owned the AKG K712 Pro for about a year now and have tried it on numerous systems. The source is a variety of uncompressed music files on the computer playing through Foobar2000.
  • Pros: Extremely Dynamic, Clean, Clear, Comfortable, Beautiful Natural Tonality, Phenomenal Bass, Precise Imaging, Large Soundstage, Revealing, Musical
  • Cons: Heavily system dependent sound quality. Can be harsh with poor synergy. Power Hungry.

  • Summary: Not quite a review but thought I'd quote my recent observations.   Quote: Originally Posted by Rob80b    Well the K712s showed up, just doing some preliminary comparison with my K701s with the bass port mod.
  • Pros: Smoother and much added bass over the previous K7xx series, warmer, great phone to chill out to.
  • Cons: Mini 3 pin XLR connector makes adding a balanced cable impractical for most.

  • Summary: One headphone for all people? I think the K712 tries very hard to please everyone and in doing this misses the boat in focusing on being the best at any one thing. Great headphones but it's not that simple! Well built but delicate.
  • Pros: Excellent, mostly neutral, full range sound, comfortable, detachable cable and replaceable ear pads
  • Cons: Delicate construction, expensive, need a high current amp with lots of headroom to sound their best

  • Excerpt: There are many reasons to have a really good set of monitoring headphones in the studio - we may need to work quietly because of noise constraints or perhaps we don't want to listen to the same set of speakers all day.

  • Pros: Sound quality
  • Cons: Previous price

  • Summary: This will be a somewhat compact review and comparison to the HiFiMAN HE-400, they're roughly the same price around here. Starting with some pictures.             Accessories While I don't consider accessories that important I guess I should mention them.
  • Pros: Neutral, slightly warm, versatile, comfort, stock cables & connector
  • Cons: Can be slightly boring, feels plastic

  • Summary: 6-7 hour impressions. I will update/edit this more as I listen to it more. If you don't like this please GET OUT!!!.   These are only impressions vs the bass port modded Q701.   Slightly fuller sounding in the mids than the Q701m. Barely audible.
  • Pros: warm sound, neutral, comfortable, more bass than stock Q701. Good all-rounder.
  • Cons: slightly forward sound overall
