AKG K702 Reference Open-Back Over-Ear Studio Headphones
AKG Varimotion membrane
The heart of any headphone or microphone is the diaphragm. It’s the component that handles the challenging task of turning its mechanical motion into the electrical signal that delivers the sound. Varimotion from AKG is a unique technology that allows the production of a diaphragm whose thickness varies along its diameter. With the help of this innovative diaphragm, AKG is able to precisely tune the capsule for the highest level of performance to provide powerful, accurate, clear and feedback-free sound.
AKG flat-wire voice coil technology
AKG’s flat-wire voice coil technology is what gives the K702 reference headphones the transient response that delivers amazingly accurate and spacious sound. Conventional voice coils use round wires, but AKG’s flat-wire technology allows the company to build very rigid yet lightweight voice coils, which improves the pulse response. Furthermore, using flat wires provides higher packing density in the magnetic gap, which increases the efficiency because less power is lost to heat.
The AKG Legacy - Inspiring Greatness for decades
For more than 65 years, AKG has helped create the iconic sounds of some of the world’s most well known recording artists, engineers and producers. Our designers and engineers have made it their life’s passion to find new ways to deliver breakthrough experiences for artists of all levels. Whether in the studio or on stage, when you wear AKG headphones, you’re seconds away from creating history.

All in all a bit more controlled when a large orchestra goes full throttle- then i find the 701 can sound a little strained and harsh at the treble end and a little less clear in the mid range when, say a Mahler or Wagner orchestra comes to a massive crescendo.
The k712 is also a better all rounder than the K701, being adept at rock and pop music.
The 712 is also less fatiguing for longer listens.
For all the above reasons i think the 712, at its current price, is worth the extra money over the still very fine 701 (which is now a stone cold bargain if you want a highly detailed, neutral open ear head phone).
Be aware that they need a headphone amp to be properly driven and sound their best.
These are currently selling for £140- they were AKG's flagship consumer reference model when launched and sold for hundred's of pounds more at the time. At the current price they are remarkable value if you are looking for a detailed, largely neutral headphone.
If you are looking for a warm or smooth sound these are not what you need, nor are they ideal for rock and pop recordings- but if you primarily listen to classical music, they are phenomenal, and at the current, much discounted price, a real find.
The K712s have the exact same sound balance as the K240s, even to the point of operating at exactly the same volume level on the headphone amp. They improve on the K240s with a larger soundscape, which gives each instrument more space and being larger & better built they are more comfortable for long periods. You can further improve their clarity, neutrality & impact by fitting leather Dekoni AKG Elite
Fenestrated ear pads, which are a significant upgrade in sound & comfort on the £20 velvet originals, and also by upgrading the cable - I use a 2.5m Naim Grey/Neutrik jacks lead.
The 712s are used on the end of a dedicated Naim headphone system and they play all music, be it Beatles, Zappa, Ellington or Boulez, with absolute aplomb & equanimity. The only downside is, being a true studio headphone, they will show up any faults in the recording or your hi fi chain. But if you want the unadulterated truth, warts and all, beauty and all, this is one of the most acurate headphones on the planet. Add in the very reasonable price in true audiophile terms (even after adding an extra £140 for the upgraded pads & cable. ) If you can't stretch to the upgrades get the standard 712s, if you can't stetch to them go for the 240s at £70 - then start saving!
I opened them up. Exploring inside, the yellow wire has been in contact with the rod soldered to the red wire, this caused the plastic coating on the yellow wire to melt. What in the fricking heck is this? How? You can pull the yellow wire so it's under the red and out of the way when you replace the plastic part....
These headphones have relatively high impedance and low sensitivity. They are very fussy about the amplifier and sound awful with some electronics. Even the headphone output of my HiFi amp sounds poor. Surprisingly, they sound great when driven directly from my old PC sound card. There's no doubt that a top quality headphone amp is best, I built one for this purpose and it sounds excellent but of course commercial headphone amplifiers are available and the good ones are well worth it. Don't be disappointed if you get this product and it sounds poor - just try some different devices or amplifiers and you will be rewarded with very fine sound indeed.
Bass, mid, and treble all represented with such clarity and realism.
These phones are definitely a bit special.
