    I have had these for 2 months now, use them daily for work, and several friends have ostracized me for my inability to stop talking about them. I adore them, and am wearing them as we speak.

    Plus points:

    1. You hear EVERYTHING. This is like having a really unforgiving set of studio monitors strapped to your ears (And when i say strapped, I mean lovingly and comfortably placed and light as a feather gently on your head)
    2. The design is nice, and unlike closed back headphones which I had always been a sucker for in the past - the sound is so wide - playing high quality audio has changed significantly since I got these. I cannot listen to anything less than 320kbps, (or by certain producers) as you really notice the difference. By the sound being wide, i mean whereas with my HD280 Pros i felt like everything was happening very loudly within an inch of my skull either side - these actually make it sound like the audio is filling the room. With my eyes closed I can almost isolate an arpeggio to be panning 4ft away from me to my left. whilst a snare is sat behind my right ear. It is a remarkable experience. If you enjoy well produced electronic music (and no i don't mean modern commercial dubstep.) you will appreciate these headphones.

    3. The Cable is a decent length, and replaceable - and high quality.
    4. You can, (and I have) wear them for 24 hours straight. something that would make my ears sweaty and bleeding in a set of hd-25's
    5. For what it's worth - the box is pretty - and opening it feels like you've joined an exclusive members club - but that now sits on a shelf since day 1. I buy products, not packages.

    INITIAL REVIEW: I've worked in TV broadcasting since 1997, low-budget film production since 2011 and amateur/semi-professional music production on and off since 1992. Until lately I've always done my mixes for music and film sound on nearfield studio monitors in various low-budget studios and home studio set-ups, continuously striving to improve the monitoring and acoustics of my home studios with the very limited budget available to me.

    Lately I've been forced to consider the necessity of doing much of my work on headphones using VRM (virtual reference monitoring). Obviously to work accurately with the VRM software/hardware I need the most neutral-sounding headphones that I can afford. I've never splurged more than £50 on headphones before and during my on-line research I encountered the audiophiles' theory of "burn-in" - the notion that headphones start out sounding slightly below-par but improve after many hours of use. Some people believe this and some people believe that it is not the headphones improving with use but the hearing of the user becoming more attuned to the new headphones.

    I used these headphones for several hours a day with various devices over a seven-day period. Initially I was disappointed. The sound seemed somewhat anaemic, lacking in warmth and I had to strain to hear bass detail even on heavy electronic music and films with big explosions. By the end of the week the frequency response seemed to have levelled out and I was becoming more satisfied with the clarity and detail. I could hear flaws and crudities in television sound production (which is the level of clarity that I require) and music was becoming more pleasurable. The 'phones were "burning in", or so I thought.

    I chose to buy the AKG Q702 headphones after a lot of research. Headphones are a difficult purchase because it's hard to audition them due to the difficulty of finding a retailer who stocks a wide range and also because retailers are reluctant to let people try them due to health and safety concerns around cleanliness.

    My research was threefold. Firstly I looked at reviews by hifi magazines and websites. Then I consulted hifi forums and lastly I looked at product reviews on sites like Amazon from people who actually had purchased items. All opinions gathered in this way have to be treated with some caution because the views are subjective and, to be frank, some people do have favourite brands. The opinions I took the most notice of were from people who like the same type of music as me, which is mainly classical. These came out heavily in favour of AKG headphones and the Q702s in particular.

    I also took price into account. I was willing to spend rather more than the roughly £250 the AKGs cost but there is a law of diminishing returns in hifi and everything I read made me think that, whilst I could get better headphones, I would probably be satisfied with the AKGs.

    Ok so they come in a nice enough box. There is no case but that is not a concern for me as they will only be used at home and I have a convenient shelf for them to sit on. They have a tubular metal framework with a leather strap which goes on top of your head. The bodies are made of plastic and they have foam ear-surrounds. They are pretty light, 360g on my kitchen scales, including the cable, which is detachable. They are "open back" which means that they don't insulate you fully from external noise nor indeed do they protect others from your music. So they are for use in private!
