How is the k7xx compared to the hifiman 400s and 400i which are around the same price.
I have the hifiman he400 which is basically the 400i. They are much better in just about every way than the K7xx but also cost a lot more. I have a Geek out 1000 and Schiit Asgard both 1 watt of power. They drive the he400's with no problem but struggle to drive the K7xx. You will need a high quality amp to get the most out of them. The other problems I have with the AKG's are lack of bass and accuracy. Instruments are much more true to sound through the he400's. The AKG's image very well but so do the he 400's. I also have a pair of Audeze SINE and they are amazing. I use them for travel since they are on ear closed back. If you can afford planar magnetics they will be much better than the K7xx.
