  • Excerpt: If you want real, clear and colorful sound then take K712. The only alternative is K701, but you get what you pay for. For a week I tested a lot of models of Shure, Audio-Technica, Sennhiser, Alesis (terrible ones), AKG.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Real High-fidelity, Versatile
  • Cons: You Have To Pay A Lot

  • 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: 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

  • Summary: Called me crazy after I have had so much "not so good" experiences with AKG headphones, from K701 to recently K554, K501. My ears were badly hurt by recent ear infection but I still put my bet on this pair of headphones They do not disappoint at all.
  • Pros: Sound quality
  • Cons: Previous price

  • Summary: This is going to be a short review, just letting you know in advance. I listen to mostly contemporary pop, classic rock, as well as a little classical. In my search for a good headphone to use for all around listening, I stumbled across these, and I must say I'm quite impressed!
  • Pros: Good balance throughout frequency, not sibilant, balanced, great for casual listening
  • Cons: Upfront sound, slight peak around 2khz sometimes annoying

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: For the record, the Siberia V2's were the white bodied analog ones, plugged directly into a front panel input and using onboard audio from an Asus Crosshair IV Formula.

  • 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
