DJ Headphones

Wonderful headphones, but my one’s were being created in slovakia and i can’t justify spending a premium when they are built on the inexpensive. Also my remaining earcup was harmed when i opened the box, most likely tied in with the simple fact that they are no extended made in austria. Possessing reported that i truly appreciated the sound and model.

Straight into the overview,i employed arcam rhead (£300-four hundred) and artistic xfi titanium hd (~£100)the box is quite nice with a fabric finish. The headphones were being packaged pretty well and were being on the stand (that will come with it) inside the box. Out of the box it was clear they experienced been built with care and the top quality was excellent. Quite relaxed to wear and not a one portion of your ear touches everything (after they are modified to match your head). The sound on 1st listern was extremely scientific and pretty sharp. It was cleanse and the imaging was excellent, but i wouldnt say it was pleasant audio, not bad , just not stress-free. This however, mellowed out immediately after a couple days and now the audio is wide and sleek and an absolute delight to listern to. The precision of these headphones is jaw dropping , in some cases this is a gain but others not so significantly. Some music do have an around exaggerated ‘ssssss’ seem on some lyrics but this only comes about on a handful of songs and this shouldnt put you off these headphones because in every single other regard they are wow.

These are wonderful headphones, truly well worth the value. . Okay, some will say i am just a akg fanboy but i also personal grado rs2i’s & the ‘legendary’ sennheiser hd600’s but the k812’s are a genuinely worthwhile enhance in excess of my akg k702 sixty fifth anniversary headphones. I have go through each on-line & magazine critique around on the k812’s and finished up to some degree confused, the to start with lesson is to belief your favorite headphone manufacturer to generate a wonderful flagship headphone and not to get to get bogged down with the minutiae within just some of the critiques. The headphones arrive in a easy but appealing box and akg provide a attractive wood headphone stand which is much more practical to me than an aluminium box (i bought two strong but mild headphone boxes from amazon for £15 just about every and they accommodate any of my headphones for when i journey abroad). The supplies used in the development of the k812’s are of good high quality, they appear prestigious and are quite at ease. I notably like the larger sized than common earpieces which present loads of area for your ears and seal the earpieces to your head actually effectively. I don’t will need a 3m cable so i will be ordering a 3ft cable from double helix cables who make extremely significant excellent headphone cables. Lot’s of headphone porn on their website. I resisted listening until finally the k812’s had experienced 24hrs listening to tracks on their very own by means of my notebook, yes, i do consider that matters like headphones & loudspeakers want managing in but let us not get into that debate pleasei only use headphones with my two electronic audio gamers, cowan plenue one & colorfly c4 pro, so i welcomed the less complicated to drive k812’s in contrast to my k702/65’s whilst i chose equally my dap’s simply because they have nutritious ability outputs, i am utilizing noticebly fewer than i was.

The finest mastering headphones income can buy. Was i even listening to my daw prior to these unbelievable screens?if there is certainly better than this, i am going to be shocked. This is purely neutral audio, what you listen to is what is truly pushing as a result of the master channel. Preserve up, they are absolutely worth each and every penny.

I recently bought both the akg k712 and the akg k812 so have put a review comparing the experience under both. 30 years ago, i bought a set of akg’s – the k 280. These are called parabolic and have two speaker coils in each ear. Always liked these but i decided to treat myself as technology has moved on a bit since then. I am in my 60’s so ears not so good. Kit is an arcam rhead, irdac ii, a39, cd37, heybrook tt2 deck. Various music both cd and vinyl. The sound was definitely an improvement on the k280, but not the upgrade i expected.

For me, it is difficult to imagine how a pair of head phones could sound better than these. I’m picky, particularly at this price point, but i cannot fault these and will happily live with them for the rest of my days. They are just superlative- unprecedented detail, refinement and sound staging.

I was fortunate to buy these at a heavily discounted price. I was fortunate to buy these at a heavily discounted price. I own a pair of shure srh1840’s, sennheiser hd650 and akgk702. They are not portable as they would move around on your due to their size i would imagine, but they are very comfortable and sound amazing. If you like detail then you’ll love these. I found the hd650’s a little too muffled by comparison, others may prefer this deeper presentation. Akg’s are often reviewed as a bit light in the base and that is probably fair comment. I love them though and they seem to like my marantz sa11s3 as a source.

About a month now and they just keep getting better. Amazing clarity and effortless performance. Been running in 24×7 for about a month now and they just keep getting better. Amazing clarity and effortless performance, also comfortable to ware unlike some other makes.

Straight into the review,i used arcam rhead (£300-400) and creative xfi titanium hd (~£100)the box is very nice with a fabric finish. The headphones were packaged very well and were on the stand (that comes with it) inside the box. Out of the box it was obvious they had been built with care and the quality was superb. Very comfortable to wear and not a single part of your ear touches anything (once they are adjusted to fit your head). The sound on first listern was incredibly clinical and very sharp. It was clean and the imaging was fantastic, but i wouldnt say it was enjoyable sound, not bad , just not relaxing. This however, mellowed out after a few days and now the sound is wide and smooth and an absolute delight to listern to. The accuracy of these headphones is jaw dropping , sometimes this is a benefit but others not so much. Some songs do have an over exaggerated “ssssss” sound on some lyrics but this only happens on a handful of songs and this shouldnt put you off these headphones because in every other respect they are wow.

My first serious headphone was an akg and i have always had a bit of nostalgia for the brand. However, through endless iterations, and since the early days of k1000, akg produced more of the same. I was therefore intrigued when a new flagship was announced, however due to mixed reviews i held off until was able to get this for a competitive price. Straight out of the box, and based on looks and build quality alone, this is my new favourite. Sturdy, classy, understated but at the same time quite comfortable (i say “quite” because it is not exactly lightweight). I read a lot of talk about the cable. While i am a believer in cables and spent thousands on expensive experiments, i believe that a cable can not change the fundamental sound on a system, but rather add subtle finishing touches to a well tuned sound. In other words, yes, it is a rather thin and cheap looking cable but it does the job, it is virtually invisible, no microphonics, no thick heavy ropes hanging from my neck, i have no problem with it. As far as sound is concerned i am primarily a speaker user and my headphones are rather a hobby.

I have lots of headphones from stax and kingsound electrostatics to earbuds. These are my favourite overall, though being open they let out a tinny version of what you are listening to and environmental noise in so are unsuitable for trains, buses and ‘planes. They are safer for walking, of course, since then hearing environmental noises is important.

Nice headphones, but my one’s were made in slovakia and i can’t justify paying a premium when they are made on the cheap. Also my left earcup was damaged when i opened the box, probably tied in with the fact that they are no longer made in austria. Having said that i really liked the sound and style.

Great headphones, but you pay for your listening pleasure. If i buy a new piece of hi-fi equipment, i can guarantee that a colleague or friend, upon finding out, will ask how much it was, and if i tell them, they will then ask why i spent so much on it. I particularly treasure the comments of one female colleague who will berate me for spending e. £1000 on a new amplifier, whilst i know that this sum is dwarfed by what she has spent on designer shoes, most of which she finds agony to walk in. The simple fact is that everyone has (and should have) their indulgences, and given the choice between bunions and thousands of hours of listening pleasure, i know which i’d choose. I preface my review with these comments because these are, by any reckoning, an expensive pair of headphones. Why on earth should anyone in their right mind pay this much?. Well, there is no short answer to this. Headphone and speaker technology has come on leaps and bounds over the past twenty years, and you can buy a pair of headphones for £50 or so now that would trounce the top-ranked ‘phones of a couple of decades ago.

Just got my pair and am comparing them to my old q701s. The overall frequency response is similar, as you would expect from reference headphones. With the exception of the bass frequencies, where there is notable better definition – clearer, deeper without changing the overall balance. There is also better general clarity – soft, background sounds become sharper. The major difference is in spacial representation.
