Music

Music:
"The bass thing has been keep coming up, and the only thing I can conclude is that only s***ty music has loud bass...damn neutrals....you have ruined me."
_
"I listen to a wide range of musical genres and I have yet to sample any of them that made me think these weren't excellent headphones for that particular flavor of music."
_
"They aren't very enjoyable if you just wanna listen to music, for that a nice pair of Bose will work great!"
_
"I couldn't believe how clear and stable music can be!"
_
"I wouldn't recommend for Hip-hop and RnB music."
_
"I have had these for a little while now and although I do not consider myself a hardcore audiophile I do like good music."
_
"Works well with most music genres."
_
"But the SR80i are still great headphones and I would probably prefer to listen to music and game with them more than the Sony's."
_
"Music is crystal clear and silky smooth."
_
"Those who love acoustic music or love hearing vocals will prefer these over the HD598."

Quality

Quality:
"Not that the 701's weren't pretty nice, it's just that when you have them side-by-side, the quality of the Austrian-built headphones is clear."
_
"Unless there is something wrong with quality control and I got a dud set, which I doubt since these are supposed to be made in Austria."
_
"I expected more from this, but the build quality was ridiculous."
_
"Just beware its then hard to live with anything of less quality."
_
"You also benefit by not using those software surround in that there will be zero degradation in sound quality."
_
"AKG will hopefully solve any quality control issue over this model soon as I would love to re-order them because when they work-the sound is sublime."
_
"These are great, the sound quality is great, I have them paired with a FiiO Alpen headphone amp."
_
"Build quality is great, very comfortable, and sound quality overall is good."
_
"Build quality is great, the orange looks darker in person, and the detachable cable helps if you want to stick it in the Case Budi XL sized bag, fits like a charm :)"

Sound

Sound:
"I came in to this with a preconceived notion that these wouldn't sound very good because they are made by Philips."
_
"I know it must sound weird to hear that a headphone sounds amazing and yet boring, but its true."
_
"I called AKG America to talk with a tech to see if there was any need to break them in, they said no, they should sound good right out of the box."
_
")Pros: Wide open sound stage, present in-your-face sound, neutral maybe a BIT bright (this rounds out with burn-in), solid bass performance, smooth mids and highs, well balanced, comfortable, awesome color schemeCons: Definitely need some burn-in, won't reach their full potential without a decent amp (I'm running these off a Hifiman EF2A and they sound is MASSIVE)Bottom Line: For your money, not sure you can get a better sounding set of cans."
_
"k240s is not as comfortable and sound may be less refined compared to the k712."
_
"The sound is well but, it need more bass to be hifi, i recorded a sub bass and it didnt show all the sound that it has."
_
"AKG will hopefully solve any quality control issue over this model soon as I would love to re-order them because when they work-the sound is sublime."
_
"They are amazing sounding headphones."
_
"However, you need couple of days to get used to its sound, after that you will fall in love with it."
_
"So comfortable and sounds amazing."
