I wonder what other people commenting on the K7XX would change about their perspective on the product when A-B comparing it to other AKG headphones?
I've tried the AKG K712 before and my K7XX are pretty much identical to what I remember. I currently have an AKG Q701 and would pick the K7XX over them all day. The build quality is the same from the 3 pairs I've tried. No real complaints other than that the K712 was too expensive for what it is. Q701 bumps destroy your skull unless the headband is modded.
Imo AKG has some of the absolute worst packaging I have ever experienced. 0/100 on packaging. There is no good way to get them out of the box without battling the cardboard and box without tearing it to shit.
As far as the clamping force is concerned, mine has been consistent across all 3 pairs. The memory foam pads blow away the stock Q701 pads too. I have a much better seal with the K7XX and K712 respectively.
The clamp force on my K7XX is up there with my DT770 Pro (1+ yr old headband). My HD600 has a lot of perceived clamping force because they aren't as wide of a headphone/headband in my experience; the HD600 has the highest amount of clamp force on my head shape. My DT990 Premium/Edition might as well be falling off my head for how gentle the clamp force is when compared to the others listed prior in this comparison.
Edit: added more clamp force comparisons.
Thanks, great to hear some positive comments and comparisons to similar models. I don't have anything to compare with tho they are clearly better than my Takstar Hi2050 (1/4 the price but supposedly giant killers). I am VERY happy with the AKGs even at this stage of low use.
Very comfortable, barely feel they are there. Well balance sound, dynamic and detailed - just what I hoped for.
