Reviews about Headphones AKG K 712 Pro

Pluses: – Sound! This is not the Bubbling Beats. Here and the frequency response more evenly, and detail, and the scene. – The landing is very comfortable. – Weight. – Build quality.
Disadvantages: – The twisted wire is too rigid and tends to hold twisted shape even where it is not needed. – Price in Russia. It’s better order from Germany, with delivery come out 2.5 times cheaper.
Minuses: I took them to replace the AKG K99, which after 3 hours the work put a lot of pressure on my ears. Heaven and earth. K712 not only sound better, but also, thanks to the excellent fit, from them completely the head and ears do not get tired. They are practically weightless.

Advantages: The convenience of the headphones of this company is undeniable. The headband is very comfortable, does not crush and does not cause discomfort, but the most important thing is not to adjust the arc every time under someone the head. I put on everything. An example to follow other firms. Cups huge, ears there feel great. Someone complained and wrote that the ears touch the bottom of the cups and hurt, I can not imagine how this maybe they are very deep. Maybe some auricles quite indecent sizes, but this is their problem))). Two cords in set – convenient. Light weight, no discomfort on the head at all cause, you can sit for many hours continuously. Sound. Warming up The headphones turned out to be not as delirious as I thought. New out of the box sounded good, but not as balanced and detailed as after some time. Low were originally good, but still thicker and denser. The sound, in principle, is analytical, shows that going on in the phonogram, the tails of the reverb and others are clearly audible micro details. Indeed, many processing things in these headphones can be done with high accuracy without resorting to monitors. The sound is very different from the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO and like them, no inflated bass and bully loose “branded” top. The sound can be described as smooth (reference). The sound stage is large in moderation. Too bloated scene may “break” the record into components, this is not here. Detail high, but not beyond. DT 990 seems to be taller, but listened I have them for a long time, so I won’t say for sure. On the other hand, extremely high detail has the side effect of fast fatigue, so some compromise is important. Good separation of tools and building a virtual scene
Disadvantages: Velor ear pads tend to collect with dust and garbage, but velor – it is velor. You can and clean, no problem. But comfort and ears do not sweat
Minuses: Overall, very satisfied. It is a pity we do not have in Moldova stores where you could compare many models focus on different reviews, forums and reviews, and what to do. IN overall a great tool for working and listening with high quality. Just do not need to connect to cheap and low-power to sources. Do not think that if there are only 62 Ohms, then you can stick into any “hole”))). This is not entirely true. Volume can be missed with excess, but do not confuse volume and quality. These are different things. Verdict: definitely recommend, although the price for many will be big. I was lucky and I bought them almost half the price

Pluses: good sound
Minuses: After 2-3 months, the cable frayed, the benefit was spare kit. After 1.5 years they broke and it’s not about cable.
Disadvantages: The assembly is not high quality, the wire is cheap, creak. Of course at the beginning everything was cool, but a year passed and their condition worsened greatly. Sanhayzers compared to them simply do not slaughtered.

Aleksandrovich Alexey

Pluses: Sound, sound and sound again! Assembly, convenience how they sit on their heads, sensitive to settings
Minuses: I do not like the design, but the sound is not affects
Minuses: Changed the old Sony. About AKG I heard different reviews, from delight, to fu, do not take it. I listened in the store through the player, I was pleased with the sound. Home connected to the Schiit Magni 2Uber tract and Schiit Modi 2 Uber. Here is heaven and earth. Headphones need good amplifiers, if you want to have a decent sound. Assembled system satisfied

Ivanov Alexey

Pluses: Light, very light … The top is not sandy, fairly even, the middle does not fall.
Minuses: There is not much bass, but I hope this is only before warming up such sensations.
Minuses: I changed my old Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro to AKG K712 PRO, and absolutely no regrets. Working at AKG is a lot easier. ears are not tired of the sharp top, at least mine)

Smetannikov Pavel

Pluses: Well, everyone has already written everything. But at the first listening to the same scene immediately attracts attention, beautiful, deep, audible details of this very depth. Light can spend all day in them without much stress, even fell asleep in them not once. Two cables included – a great bonus. Headband on the elastic is perfectly complemented by the resistance of the ear pads made of material “suede.” Even on an ordinary audio iron, they sound magical and fairly honestly. External sounds do not particularly break through.
Minuses: Design will come down of course, but probably for the 21st century You could already come up with something like that, although you would overpay for the design does not see its point, since the headphones are not outdoor. because of large ear pads, headphones require some positioning relative to the ears, the sound changes, I don’t know, really is it worth considering as a disadvantage, rather warning.
Minuses: I chose headphones from the middle segment for a very long time, ACG certainly won my ear for a long time, so the choice fell on them. I saw today’s price tag on them and was stunned … Now I would have already a toad didn’t let go. How now to accumulate and buy a DAC to them, sadness.

Minuses: I don’t even know how to describe all the impressions of headphones. Here it is better to look at Dr. Head and head-fi org. However, I’ll note something about my feelings after switching to them from my old HD 558. Landing is not perfect as it can to appear. I don’t like the fact that the ears inside touch the walls sponge covered driver. It is not excusable in my opinion for such a model is expensive. It seems to be such huge headphones, and ears concern, well, it would be necessary to do a little deeper on the floor, see at least cm. Though after listening to them for more than 2 months already got used to it and do not even notice. Compared to any closed “ears” they are simply weightless and not shake at all. The sound in them is excellent (airy, non-driving, large sound resolution, high detail). Naturally, buying such a model must have at least a budget audio path, including dac and amplifier. Realtek is extremely stupid to listen to. At Asus Xonar D1 and Bravo Audio ocean amp itself are worth it. Sound more or less satisfied, but now I would take the path more expensive.

Sobakin Oleg

Pluses: look good, sound great, amazing lungs.
Minuses: They require a long “warm-up”, they require a preamplifier, require a relaxed atmosphere. Some requirements, in short.
Disadvantages: I bought headphones in December 2014. Choose between them, 702 and 701 QJ. I decided not to cheapen and took 712. Arriving at the store on preview, was disappointed. They are positioned as a pre-flagship manufacturer, only K812 is “cooler”. But “super majestic sound “I did not hear, then I understood why. First, the amplifier was a tube, from fashion to “as when when else the grass was greener. “Secondly, the recording was” the same psi rock that shocked the world “60s-70s. It is logical that through the” warm “amplifier I trying to listen to frequencies, nothing but the “warm tube” in these headphones did not hear. Why did I listen to frequencies? Because one of distinctive features K712Pro – “Improved low-end performance by 3dB”. For the above reasons, I was a little disappointed. But stereo picture immediately announced itself. It’s very clear where and what from the first seconds. I connected them to iPhone 5, but he, of course, didn’t very drawn. A little upset, I came home with a purchase. Through the “honest” amplifier, the sound card NI Komplete 6 sound was much less cluttered with “vintage” garbage, which is rumored to be appreciated by musicophiles. After listening to a variety of recordings, modern and not very, I was satisfied with the accuracy of the sound, but the bass still did not appear. However, after a month of ceaselessly scrolling through music, movies and everything else (in quiet mode, sadly hanging on the stand – the main signal went through the monitor speakers), I put them on again, and I was pleasantly surprised. Finally, a hint of bass turned into a complete real bass. Now double bass in the orchestra and reese bass by Noisia sounded right. I want to warn you right away – if you are going to stick them through the line in of your old laptop to listen low-quality slag on VKontakte – you will be disappointed. These headphones are extremely demanding on the sound source (preamplifier, sound card) and the quality of the material. They are perfect for mix, mastering, listening to quality music, you can sit for a long time without getting tired. Yes, and the orange wire – well, cool?

Pluses: Sane combination of price and quality. Hand-assembled in Austria. For long wear. Do not press and do not fall. Small weight. Two cables included – straight and twisted. Separate sound song.
Minuses: Funny, sit on the head))) Like a kokoshnik. Require good ear amplifier.
Disadvantages: Surprised that there are no reviews yet. Until I did not buy the 712th I thought that I had good headphones. A 712 immediately put everything in place. Everything is almost ideal here, and bass and middle and top. You can hear the attack and the timbre of the bass instrument itself. And not only bass. Headphones make not only sounds of different heights, but can be heard the sound of plastic on a barrel in a drum part. Tselcheki pick and sensation of strings. As much air as you can imagine. I am sure that it will be difficult to find something in the price tag of about 20.000r it’s better. Yes. I listen with a very good ear amp teac ha-501. SACD images. So I can judge almost objectively. Must remember that the sound is transmitted not only by the headphones, but also by the technique that was originally the sound reproduces. And these headphones require a good path.
