AKG K 702 Review

The AKG Case Let's end this week with another famous name: AKG and their reference-class K 702. Our opinion about its little brother, the K 271, was pretty balanced: it has a very detailed high-end but a too weak low-frequency range. What about the K 702? Read more…

JimboSpins's review"Loud and hurt my ears"

AKG K 702
I have been using the AKG K 702 off and on for 5 months now and the first thing that stands out to me is how loud they can get. For some reason I feel like they get louder than any other set of headphones that I have used. In the studio we had to keep these only about halfway up because it seemed like they were always blaring loud. They are circumaural open headphones that come with a 10 foot cable. They are very light and portable. When you purchase them, you will not get a hard carrying case which would have been nice considering the price of them.
The frequency response is 10Hz-39.8 kHz and the impedance is 62 ohms. These open back dynamic headphones cost a lot and they are pretty light.
I have used the K 701, and K 271 MKII from AKG. All 3 are great but I prefer the MKII’s because of how comfortable they are and plus they are cheaper than the 701’s and the 702’s. The 701’s were around before this pair was and the crazy thing is that they are both the exact same price. The specs are virtually the same and the only difference I could distinguish between the two is the color.
The sound of the AKG K 702 headphones is very clean and crisp but after wearing these for about a hour and listening to music with them I would get a headache because I felt like the highs where very harsh in these headphones. It was almost unbearable after about an hour I hated the way they sounded in my ears. I have used many AKG headphones and none of them made me feel like that so the 702’s just are not for me. I do not recommend these; I would suggest getting the MKII’s if you want a great sound and comfort.

It is self-adjusting and you envloppe many ears (even large as mine = 0). Trop.La not good (the 29/06/2014) I saw at 211 euros on the site so what will of plus.Je have 4 months for the price and more with a 3m cable you can change me think it is worth seeing.

I use it for all my computer and then stereo.
It is very comfortable and ears breathe, not like headphones fermées.Tu can discuss that with any one while listening to music.
I keep my head about 2 hours and the semeine double the weekend and I think I can say that it is top and does not tire the brain = 0).

It is strong enough and has the detachable cable right side gauche.Niveau performance for the price this is the best I think.

The audio quality is very balanced which is good for mix.L image stereo is removed and can be distinguished very well for example a guitar that is 30% right and the other (solo for example) is 10% towards your side gauche.Des bass is therefore neutral for lovers bim bam boom big I recommend.

AKG K702: Comes in a nice neat presentation box, these headphones AKG K702 monitoring type is open Revelle be a very nice tool for mixing and mastering. Listening, bandwidth seems very friendly, not aggressive or high frequency of large low tiring! I appreciate the musicality and distinguishes the precise position of each musician or singer in a set. Of the same brand, I also owns 271 MkII, closed type and with less spatial. Sobriety is a trademark Akg! To delve a little deeper into the extreme frequencies, I am also using another listening, Sony (boosted too much below 200 Hz and 12 KHz to exaggerate!) Can carry the K702 long hours without penalty through off padded leather headband but also by large soft velor ear pads that surround the ears well. The drivers are of large diameter and well away from ears, result: it sounds airy and spacious! The cable of sufficient length is detachable via a mini XLR, very convenient for example when replacing connectors and adapters jack 6.3 and 3.5 or more are provided! The materials and quality manufacturing (leather, velvet, plastic, stainless steel ...) reinforce the impression of seriousness of the subject, Made in Austria ... in short, I recommend strongly that more than listening to great value / price quite reasonable. Do not hesitate!

Use and ergonomics are of an excellent standard!

To see in the long term, but everything seems met to ensure proper strength!

The audio quality is simply excellent for editing and mixing!

lcarre10's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A very nice product"

AKG K 702
3 months of use exclusively on my kronos. I have not tried other models because that's what I wanted headphones after reading all the articles and opinions about this product.
What I love most: the overall sound quality
What I like the moions: weight after one hour of listening.
value for money: very correct: 200 € used.
I would do without this choice problem.

I use the headset especially for playing the keyboard and so far very little to listen to music on my stereo equipment.
The coating is nice but I personally find a bit heavy and tiring after an hour of this game is probably normal you tell me .... but for now I have no other option because no monitors.

Headphone minijack and solid.

Very good quality and sound insulation écout even if I do not have elements compared with another device. Very good overall balance, especially in the midrange and treble, a little less in serious but it does not interfere with listening. The stereo image is accurately reproduced.
