With all the negative feedback posted here, thankfully my feedback is mostly positive.
1. No Rattle
2. Excellent sound quality even when unamped
3. Nice and punchy bass
4. Really light - feels like it's not even there
Luckily, I got serial # 26, a relatively low serial number. I'm thinking that maybe having a low serial number is the reason why I don't have rattle since it could be possible that their QA was still fresh and strong with the first few units but got lazy or relaxed as the production numbers rose.
As for the build quality, my Parrot Zik with its metal + lambskin leather band blows the K7XX away with its plastic construction. Then again, that one was double the cost of the K7XX. Due to the K7XX's plastic build though, they feel lighter than the ZIk's. This results in the K7XX staying better on my head even when rocking out really hard to a song.
Comfort-wise, I'm starting to like these breathable deep and wide ear pads since the snug pleather ones on my Zik make my ears sweat a lot.
So far it sounds good even when unamped (tested with Macbook Pro and iPod touch), though to be immersive enough I have to sometimes crank the volume of my iPod to 100%.
Thanks Massdrop and AKG for these wonderful headphones!
Where'd you get those keycaps? I MUST BUY THEM NAO!!!!!
What headphone stand is that?
1. I got to get one of those turrets!!
2. Your keyboard is FANTASTIC!.
3. I am totally glad you got a perfect set of AKG. I am still awaiting reply from MD on my request to return.
Enjoy your AKGs!!
Read the link in the post directly above yours.
Probably not true about low serial number equates no rattle. I got #12 but it still rattles until I fixed it myself. Glad yours doesn't though. Enjoy the headphones.
I'm really glad that the Massdrop community is full of nerds like me that get excited over fancy looking things. It's funny how the other stuff on my desk got more attention than the headphones themselves.
About the keyboard: Wow I can't believe someone else beat me to posting my own imgur album. As said in my album, my keyboard is a KBT Race 2 from banggood.com and my keycaps were custom printed from wasdkeyboards.com.
About the turret: It's also from Portal 2, the game where my keycaps were based on.
@AElfgarOswald: if you want, I can link here the SVG file I created for these custom keycaps, The thing is, they were made specifically for the KBT Race 2 so all of the 1.25 modifier keys on the bottom were used for the arrow keys and right shift + end instead. You can edit it out for your specific keyboard if you want, then you can have them printed by wasdkeyboards.
@Paul.M can get them here: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/ee85/
@Spoilt: That was just a speculation, but I guess the one you got proved it wrong.
Sadly it's not the case about lower numbers and QC relation. 24 here and rattling :)
That sounds good, thanks!
