AKG K712 PRO HEADPHONES

 

The AKG 712 PRO deliver a great sound for critical listening. They're super comfortable headphones with a few more accessories than the or the . However, like the previous models, they're a bit bulky and cumbersome for everyday use. They also have an...

Great audio reproduction. ; Comfortable design.

Leak a lot, due to open-back design. ; Bulky and unstable headphones. ; No isolation from ambient noise, by design.

AKG K712 Pro Headphone

 

The AKG K712 Pro's winning combination of comfort, build quality, and superlative sound puts it in the top tier of headphones in its price class.

The Fairest K7 Variant of Them All

 

Allow me to preface this review with some background information. I have experience listening to different present-day AKGs, including the Q701 Quincy Jones Signature, the K702 65th Anniversary Edition (Austrian-made), the K7XX Massdrop First Edition,...

excellent neutrality, excellent soundstage and imaging, neutral and detailed bass, well-balanced treble and mids, comfortable, highly musical for a K7

headstrap elastics weaken over time, needs high quality power to extract the bass impact, can sound harsh on the wrong system

Love these for almost everthing

 

I have these headphones for about 3 week and I think they are great for overal listening to music even for a long time, however I dont think you can drive them without an amplifier because the audio quality from a phone or just a poor build-in dac isnt...

Clear detailed sound, Deep bass, Confortable, Accessories(it came with a nice carrying bag and a coiled cable)

With some songs the bass is too harsh and looks like it cant keep up with the song, Highs can be sharp

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Great improvement from AKG Q701 and K702, much better EQ, and balanced sound, slightly in the bright sound range but not an annoying bright sound

 

overall great headphone at its price.

soundstage, bright sound but non-fatigueing bright sound

if i had to pick, leaking sound, sound is not centered sound

The tale of two semi-flagship headphones

 

This review will compare between the two semi-flagship headphones from two companies; The K712 headphones from AKG, and the HD700 from Sennheiser. "Expect and discover. The perfection." -box art from AKG K712's packaging "The HD700 Truly excite your...

balanced sound with not-really-harsh treble and Three-Dimensional soundstage.

Power hungry hungry hippo headphones, picky about amp?

Quite Possibly the Best Mid-tier Dynamic Headphone Given You're Patient With System Matching

 

AKG K712 Pro Review This is a review I have put off for a long time, I've owned the AKG K712 Pro for about a year now and have tried it on numerous systems. The source is a variety of uncompressed music files on the computer playing through Foobar2000....

Extremely Dynamic, Clean, Clear, Comfortable, Beautiful Natural Tonality, Phenomenal Bass, Precise Imaging, Large Soundstage, Revealing, Musical

Heavily system dependent sound quality. Can be harsh with poor synergy. Power Hungry

What niche do these fill? All dressed up and no place to go!

 

One headphone for all people? I think the K712 tries very hard to please everyone and in doing this misses the boat in focusing on being the best at any one thing. Great headphones but it's not that simple! Well built but delicate. Much better pricing...

Excellent, mostly neutral, full range sound, comfortable, detachable cable and replaceable ear pads

Delicate construction, expensive, need a high current amp with lots of headroom to sound their best

Unbeliveble sound quality

 

Called me crazy after I have had so much "not so good" experiences with AKG headphones, from K701 to recently K554, K501. My ears were badly hurt by recent ear infection but I still put my bet on this pair of headphones They do not disappoint at all....
