Hi,
"my" AKG K702 is in the house


I named it "Fields of Gold" - so I listen Eva Cassidy "Live at Blues Alley" CD

My serious sessions begun only after 1 ...2 (!!!) hours of burning in (before I listen some of my Mahler CD's and PF "The Final Cut").
I know about recommend burning in time more than 50 hours, but I cannot wait

My feeling - the last curtain are falling - a new dimension of listening.
The K702 "likes" woman voices.

Marianne Faithful "Blazing Away" CD
http://www.mariannefaithfull.org.uk/Filmography.HTML
Very detailed, tiny nuances, "goose-flesh inclusive", drums and brass "solitary peak".

In advance I can say the AKG K702 is one headphone for studio recording and mixing - the sound engineers "must have" to create extraordinary results.

More coming step by step  

Compared to my AKG K701 (used more than 300 hours).

So you are saying that the K702 are different from the K701 in sound ?

I got the impression that they were just a different colour and had a detachable cord.

Interesting if they do have a different sound.

I am listening to Mahlers arrangements of Schumann 2 & 4 ATM on K701

From what I have read the K702 only changed the color and the method of attaching the cable. Any improvements could be explained if they have changed the housing, cable material, dampening, etc.
 
Will wait for more impressions as the K702 burns in.

AKG did a fine job on the new color scheme. Frederick, I look forward to you logging a few hundred hours on your new K702 and your impressions.

K701s and K702s sound different.  K702s are more neutral and transparent. I don't think K701s can be called netrual headphones.

The K702 comes closer to the K701 after some times of "burning in" (more than 100 hours) but a little difference remains - this depends from music.

I am very snoopy for a possible K701 follower, .... Smile .... I hope it comes next year.
