AKG K 702 review: AKG K 702

The K 702's creamy soft ear pads are so darn comfy it is easy to forget you're wearing headphones. In the end, we highly recommend this cushy, sweet-sounding set from AKG.

AKG K702

The AKG K702 are great, comfortable headphones for critical listening but are mediocre for everyday casual use. Their open design doesn't block any noise and leaks enough to be distracting. They're not made for commuting or to use at the gym but are ideal for appreciating high-quality audio in a quiet environment.

AKG K702 Review: Comfy Headphones!

The bass is bumped by three decibels, but even they still sound pretty flat, so can escape the design and that's basically it so to summarize, what are you getting for your money? You'Re, getting simple headphones, not a whole lot in the way features, but you do get some quality materials.

Just... holy moly. This pair is the whole nine yards.

For those of us who aren't working $10,000 a month jobs, these are the best thing for the price. Whereas the other alternative is the Sennheiser HD 800's, ($1k+?) honestly with all my disappointment with Sennheiser meeting less than desired quality with HD 202's and HD 280 Pro's (crap bass ranges fo...

Worth the Extra $$$?

I'm a former AKG K702 owner, a set of cans I appreciated (after a very long break in period - at least 120 hours of white noise and listening). They were very accurate, neutral and provided superb imagery: whatever is in the mix is there for the listener. My last set died (an accident, not a product...

K712 Pro. One of my favorite mid-fi headphones and my daily driver.

I loved this headphone out of the box and after owning it for a little over a year I still love it. It replaced an old pair of HD598s as my daily drivers and as gaming headphones. 1) Comfort is 10/10. Like a cloud pillow on your ears. 2) Staging is EXCELLENT. If an HD600/650/6XX is a nightclub the K...

It's the best gaming headphone I've ever had due to it's ability to be an all rounder... They are very lightweight and comfortable and I've been able to have them on for several hours without readjustment. They have good bass, great mid range, good treble and low distortion. All the music I've liste...

Completely neutral goodness.

Listen, I love bass and that's why I also own v-moda crossfire shadow m-100's for casual listening. 702's are for critical listening with certain types of music. It's for when you need absolutely flat sound and aren't in it for bass. They are excellent in what they are built to do. But don't think t...

Build quality and materials leave something to be desired, but they sound like a million bucks.

I've been using AKG Q-701s for about a year now, and really loved the pair that I broke last week. Totally my fault, not a build quality issue (although believe me when I say you don't want to get the leather headband somehow flipped around or it's a b*tch to fix). Aaaannnnnyway.... In the process o...
