has anyone actually compared austrian vs prc manufactured akg's? have to admit I'm worried about quality control
I got my 702s from China and they were fine. I will admit I have been reading tons of negatives about breakage a in lower priced AKGs. I actually returned a pair of $420 noise cancelling phones unopened that only cost me $119 directly from AKG because of all the negative reviews about breakage on that model. Note, however, that the design of these does not have and weak points that are obvious. I have never read a review that complained about pre mature failure related to construction.
Interesting, and slightly worrisome still. My concern is with quality control, and not as much design. For instance there are reports of PRC AKG models that sounds different from can to can. That's quality control, and shows that their Chinese manufacturer doesn't really understand how to make the can as designed
