Takes some time, but worth it

16.08.2015
AKG headphones have been lifelong companions to me. STarted out with a K-171 which served me well for 12 years, then moved on to K-240 MKII, which has been unbeaten so far... until now.

Unfortunately the first pair arrived with a manufacturing fault, but Thomann did a stellar job replacing the unit with a good one. Doesn't score good points for quality control on AKG's side, but I guess these things happen (hence 4 stars for quality instead of 5).

Build quality: flawless, as usual with their "pro" line. Ear pads are similar to other AKG cans, except under the velour you have memory foam that provides a better low-frequency insulation (without increased pressure on your head). You get two cables, an orange straight one, and the more practical coiled cable, both are of extremely good quality (I have one from my old K-171 that still works after rolling the office chair over it a couple of times).

Comfort: awesome. Light, but sits on its place well, even if you move around with it quite a lot.

Sound: these headphones need to be broken in (they start to sound better after 50 hours, really good after 100 hours of use). After that they really start to sound great. Spacious, incredible 3-dimensional sound stage, with fantastic separation between instruments. Since they are open, don't expect the kind of bass build-up / booming bass that is typical to semi-open and closed models, but in return you get a much more "effortless" sounding, precise low end.

All-in-all: I am using my AKG K-712 PRO for mastering and mixing jobs with great results.

Perfect for Mastering

Qmusica, 13.06.2017
These headphones are highly recommendable for any studio mixing or mastering applications. The sound is totally flat, natural and neutral. I was surprised at the frequency response, even at extremely low sub frequencies. Upon running through a few of my multi-track mixes which are in progress, I picked up on a few bogus midi notes, several octaves down. These had not been detected by either my studio monitors or previous headphones. I feel confident in using these for the 1st step of mastering, followed up by cross checking with studio monitors.

They are extremely comfortable to wear, and after a 3 hour session, I felt no listener fatigue. Build quality is more than acceptable, though a hard carrying case would have been appreciated.

One word of caution:- These will not work very well if powered from a non-professional consumer product (ie, phone or portable mp3 player). They need some serious power to get them to a usable volume. Powered directly from the headphone output of a Scarlett, with a mix peaking at -3dB and with the headphone level 3/4, the volume was just about workable. But I will probably beef this up with a quality headphone amp at some point in the near future.

Footnote:- This was my first order from Thomann. The order arrived swiftly (Canary Islands), withing just a few days. Great service!
