Product Description
Last year, we teamed up with AKG on the K7XX, a Massdrop-configured edition of the highly regarded 65th Anniversary K702. Featuring its predecessor’s legendary sound and build quality—with a bass boost, matched transducers, and improved comfort—the K7XX was a big hit with the Audiophile Community Read More

At amazon.de the K712pro is only 200euro (220usd) with free shipping, why the hell would anyone pay 40 extra bucks for a weaker headphone? https://www.amazon.de/AKG-K712-PRO-%C2%B7-Kopfh%C3%B6rer/dp/B00DCXWXEI/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&keywords=akg+k712&qid=1567376094&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Yeah, Drop's EU prices are pretty abysmal. Same with the HD6XX, you can grab the HD600 or HD650 for cheaper on sales.

I don't think this EU version is a worthy buy at $260, when you can buy K712 Pro at around $220 in EU. I think it's a bit better pair.

Don't Buy! Why? AKG K712 PRO (not K702/K7XX) for 199 € available at most major resellers, shipping included. https://geizhals.de/akg-k712-pro-schwarz-a937683.html 260 USD ≅ 230 EUR European 2 yr warranty excluded. Actually covered by AKG I really do love, that Drop is selling that stuff in Europe now, but if they don't deliver a better price, there is no reason choosing them over other resellers. I mean that was the whole point about Massdrop in the first place: offering better prices. Especially in regard, that they put a video in the product description, which states their build quality is shittier. And what's the point about a much higher price than in the states, when production and retail is done in Europe? Edit: Got another thing, get a K7XX-ish for ½ the price: https://geizhals.de/akg-k702-a347478.html

Yeah, and that is if you absolutely want them now. I got my K712 for 170€ in France and the K702 drop to 100€ from time to time. K7XX = K702 65th Anniversary = K702 with K712 pads... for 230€

K702 is not really the same though. They said K7XX is based on the 65th anniversary edition, and those actually sound a lot closer to K712 than 702's.

Is it worth to buy this 7xx edition?. The AKG 702 in Europe (Amazon) is 100€ cheaper...🤔

I don't think so man, the K712 which are a better version can be bought for cheaper than these. If I remember correctly the K7xx are just K702 with K712 pads, $260 is way too expensive for the European market.

Too pricey for a Massdrop. Should start at below 200 dollars. The original can be purchased at around 220 dollars these days.

These are nice, but mine broke after about 4 months. The headband has a thin, transparent plastic piece that holds the strap part to the suspension mechanism. Yeah, that plastic part broke. To replace it would cost about $80. That plus the $60 dekoni pads to replace the really underwhelming stock pads, and this pair of cans that cost $200 (arguably not worth that much) are now $340. They're definitely not worth $340. Not sure yet what the massdrop return policy is outside of 30 days, but I'm assuming that it's not going to be satisfactory. All in all, they're alright. They sound very meh until you burn them in and then they sound pretty good. They're comfortable with better ear pads as the stock ear pads are pretty bad. The cable is also kind of meh, it tangles if you look at it the wrong way. Wouldn't buy these again, and don't really recommend them but at the same time, I'm not not recommending them. For $200, they're marginally worth the price. Honestly, for less than that, you could go on ebay and buy a pair of m560s and be 200 times happier. These are also way harder to drive than the impedance would lead you to believe. My xhair 7 mobo onboard sound was fantastically loud with the 4xx's, but it barely drives these. Even the FX-Audio X6 dac barely has enough juice to push them to the top.

Could I bother anyone with the measurements for the inner part of the pads? I have really big ears and it's a drag looking for high-quality headphones that do not hurt my ears and give me listening fatigue. Note: I am currently using Audio Technica ATH-AD700x with these earpads: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078HDVCN2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Thank you in advance. =)

The inner diameter is about 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm). The depth is at most 1 inch but about 7/8 inch (2.22 cm) near the center (maybe little less when eyeballing it). The pads don't crush easily so it holds its shape (at least for me it does). I don't think I have large ears - my bottom ear lobs do graze the pads. I only notice when thinking about it. I'd say they're about as comfortable as headphones can get. My minor complaint is they do often squeak when I chew which retracts from the immersion.

Sorry for the late response, Michael-Q. Thank you so much for responding with the measurements. This will help me greatly with deciding the purchase.

I believe it's called a trs connector -a basic stereo connector. Two hots and a ground on the plug. If other standard trs earbuds/earphones work these will work as well - performance will vary.

Yes, it has a 3.5mm jack but I wouldn't recommend getting these to listen to on your phone without a portable amplifier.
