Features

The K 702 Headphones from AKG are reference-quality open-back stereo headphones, ideal for professional audio applications. The headphones use patented Varimotion dual-layer diaphragms, flat-wire voice coils, and high-performance neodymium drivers. These technologies, combined with the open design, provide an extremely accurate sound response that provides a wide frequency response and excellent spacial qualities.

Most professional users must wear their headphones for extended periods of time, so comfort is a key requirement. The K 702 has a genuine leather, adjustable headband and heavy-duty replaceable 3D cut earpads, allowing you to wear the headphones all day without fatigue. The single-sided professional OFC cable is detachable and easily replaceable. It has a standard 3.5mm mini plug and a 1/4" adapter for compatibility with a huge variety of consumer and professional audio devices.

The AKG K702 are completely neutral open-back reference headphones designed for professional mixing and mastering. They don't emphasize anything. Everything is exactly as it is on your recording. The AKG K702 are a tool for creating music; AKG has been a recording-studio standard for microphones and headphones for many decades.

The AKG K702 are ideal for mixing and mastering because what you hear is what you've got. When you get it to sound great in the K702, it will sound great everywhere. The K702 aren't necessarily the best for enjoying music because they don't boost the bass as do many headphones, which certainly makes the music more enjoyable — but also means that the music you create with the K702 won't be weak in the bass. Likewise the K702 aren't that great for monitoring because they aren't sealed, and they don't emphasize the midrange so you're less likely to hear noise.

Unlike once-great speaker makers and everyone else who are jumping on the bandwagon and suddenly selling Chinese-made headphones with their brand stamped on them, AKG has been the real thing in studios ever since their founding right after World War II. These K702 are made in Austria, of course. Austria has no kangaroos; Austria is just south of Germany and the birthplace of Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Mahler, Strauss, and many more.

Anyone who's worked in radio or recording knows AKG microphones and headphones. I've been using them since the 1970s, and they've been on the scene since the 1940s.

The K702 are a very inexpensive way to get fantastic sound for a very long time to come. You'd have to spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars on loudspeakers and acoustic room treatments and refitments to get sound as smooth, clean, natural and revealing as these headphones give you for a tiny fraction of the price.

The K702 are not very sensitive, even with their 62 Ω impedance. These won't go very loud with an iPod or iPad; for similar sound with more sensitivity, get the 32 Ω version. For most uses when fed from a constant voltage, these 62 Ω K702 are only a couple of dB more sensitive, which aren't very sensitive when used with portable devices.
