Let’s end this week with another famous name: AKG and their reference-class K 702. Our opinion about its little brother, the K 271, was pretty balanced: it has a very detailed high-end but a too weak low-frequency range. What about the K 702?

Red Led’s Conclusion

AKG K 702The K 271 mkII didn’t quite satisfy us but its big brother really seduced us. The low-end is still a bit shy but it sounds very well and very detailed; much better than the K 271. These headphones actually redress the main disadvantage of the K 271. They are certainly the most linear headphones we ever reviewed and the dynamic range is just amazing. They reproduce every detail of the signal very accurately, which makes them perfect for mixing. Moreover, the K 702 are light and comfortable. They feature replaceable ear-cup cushions and a replaceable cable thanks to the mini-XLR connector. If we consider that a good pair of headphones shouldn’t emphasize the lows, these are the ultimate headphones for you. My own personal revelation among the headphones reviewed.

Advantages:

  • Well-balanced sound
  • Weak but accurate low-end
  • Very wide dynamic range
  • High-end reproduction is detailed but not sharp
  • Mini-XLR connector
  • Light and comfortable
  • Ear-cup cushions and cable available as spare parts

Drawbacks:

  • If you like fat lows, don’t buy them
