The AKG 702s are on sale on Amazon for the same price, and they aren't the cheap Chinese knockoffs like these are, you all wasted your money on this drop, haha.
These aren't based off the K702s, they're based off the k702 65th anniversary editions. Which are not the same. And just because they're made in China doesn't mean that they are cheap. They are cheaper than building them in Austria like the originals, but are still good quality.
So are you officially calling @richardgao of Massdrop a liar?
" The entire 700-series family, including the K7XX, are produced in China. There is a misconception that AKG manufacturers their headphones in Austria and that there are still Austrian made 700-series available. "
The K701, K702, Q701, K702 65th, K712Pro were *all* originally 'Made in Austria' (which was proudly displayed on each ear cup). They started moving manufacture to China and Slovakia in 2014 or so. Initially there were severe quality issues with the 'Made in China' models. I wouldn't know whether those issues were resolved.
I bought some at amazon UK for $141 delivered, the 702's that is. They are very good. Not interested in boosted bass.
