On the left the (very thin) toilet paper single ply and on the right the same but with the foam ring placed on top of it. On a higher output resistance amplifier the output level will be considerably lower. The AKG K271 is easy to use but doesn’t suffer for its simplicity. Both sides are made of plastic and reinforced with a metal ring at the edge, while the headband is made of imitation leather and is supported by two metal hangers. Bass extension isn’t great and it starts to audibly roll-off from 100Hz down. The overall sound is ‘open’, dynamic and very ‘forward’ as well as ‘detailed’. Upper treble is 1dB higher in level though. The effect of this filter is described in the K702 page. Most single entry headphones have it on the left just like the K701. The bright ‘neutral’ signature can be improved by EQ or as described above. Below the CSD of the K701 but with the toilet paper disc added. Below an aid to help determining the sound character of headphones with relation to the frequency response. The headphone is light in weight. This shows the resonances are effctively damped. These headphones do not emphasize any part of the frequency response range; everything is sounding exactly like the source. Weight: 235 g.

AKG K701. vs. vs. 17 facts in comparison. D3 is just too high over 0.1% to 800Hz. The ‘details’ in the music are ‘fake’ due to the 6.5kHz peak. The plots above show the ringing is substantially damped by the thin ply of toilet paper. The dip at 4kHz deepens which removes even more of the bright character of the K701. This headphone is quite comfortable and can be worn for long periods without getting too ‘hot’ on the ears. See frequency response graph. The small ‘bump’ around 2kHz makes the mids sound a bit too ‘forward’ but not in an annoying way. AKG K702 Box. I think it was a type of felt. 32 points. Isolation: low (open headphone) I owned a pair of K701's and I found the treble emphasis they had not faithful to the original recordings I listened too. Driver size: ø 40mm SPL is 105 dB at 1 volt into 62 Ohms. ALL measurements are made with a good SEAL on a flatbed measurement rig. Below the step response of the stock K701 and via Kameleon (both with toilet paper mod)The bass response is improved a lot, alsso the ringing and peaking is a lot lower in level. The treble response is a bit ‘jagged’ and has a typical ‘AKG signature’. The AKG K701 is a an oldie. Broad D2 increase in bass, including upper bass. If you like the crispness of the colour white, you’ll find it hard to avoid the allure of the K701. The impedance of most consumer grade headphones is usually rated at 1mW. Efficiency: 90dB/1mW (102dB/1V) It sounds a bit too bright and can have a shrill ‘edge’ with some music. The clamping force is medium and pleasant but this particular headphone has already been worn for quite some time. Below the spectrum plot of the K701 (Right channel). The frequency response +/- 3dB is 30Hz-10kHz. I've also been experimenting with using a larger foam disc that goes over the felt ring (covers hole in middle as well). When you find the bass levels O.K. Bi-wired oxygen-free copper cables optimize channel separation. Impedance: 65Ω The only real longevity issue is the elastic bands that aren’t easily replaced by owners. The pads are velour with standard foam inside. One difference between AKG K712 Pro vs HD600 is that AKG K712 Pro comes with two cables, instead of one. : 113dB Above 10kHz the resonances are visible but are also short. The pads are large enough in inner diameter (55mm) and have a nice depth (25mm) so most ears will fit. That eventually narrowed the choice down to AKG and the the K601 or K701. This is a comfortable headphone that can be tweaked in sound by using different AKG pads. The highest frequency at which device produces audio. Based on our rating, K701 has a total rating of 7 out of 10 vs 8 out of 10 for DT 1770 Pro. I've never heard anything from AKG before. (lots of) hair between the headphone and ear or an ear shape that does not allow a proper seal will affect the tonal balance. The output resistance of the used source/amplifier has NO practical influence on the sound. AKG is the first manufacturer in the world to use revolutionary flat-wire technology in headphones, namely the K 701. It lacks in ‘finesse’ but is above average in quality. Below: Perfect seal, a small seal breach by thin armed (reading) glasses just above the skin, thick armed glasses and a big seal breach.A seal breach isn’t really problematic at all. At first glance, the AKG K 271 MKII doesn’t seem to be that unusual, but it does … AKG k702 frequency response. The signal doesn’t follow the stimulus in the horizontal plane and quickly drops down. AKG engineers considered the entire signal path from amplifier to eardrum when designing the K701. I have heard that this edition is bassier, warmer, smoother, etc. The headphone reviewed and measured has seen many, many, many hours on it already. Only a very narrow resonance remains. Advantages AKG K701 over Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pro Accessories: 3.5mm adapter. AKG K701.

The K701 is an open headphone with a dynamic driver. Some headphones have cable entries on the right. Another way of reducing the treble peak is by using a passive in-line filter in the headphone cable. 2. highest frequency. That ~2KHz spike is still there, though, and I couldn't believe how grating that ended up being on my ears after a while. This makes the bass sound ‘light’ but ‘tight’. The ringing goes on for quite some time and is seen in the entire plot. These pads aren’t cheap though. They have two-tone navy blue and silver color scheme and an old-school retro design that will work for some. The treble is over accentuated and has enough ‘air’ but isn’t really ‘smooth’. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass. Bi-wired oxygen-free copper cables optimize channel separation. Cable: 3m terminated in 6.3mm TRS + 3.5mm adapter On the left 40Hz, in the middle a 440Hz square wave and on the right a 100μs wide DC impulse.The bass roll-off is easy to see in the 40Hz squarwave. The treble response is a bit ‘jagged’ and has a typical ‘AKG signature’. Bass is light but is ‘tight’ and well textured. The mids look better as the measured signal looks more like the applied square-wave but does show quite a lot of ringing. Even though the manufacturing of these headphones has brought in a few plastic elem… There is hardly any difference. voltage: 3.5V My friend did that mod I believe but with type wool felt or something but all I heard was it covering up the midrange issue by warming it up a bit. Deviations in different severities at different frequency bands have an effect on the sound character. Below the tonal balance differences between the old rivals K701, DT880 and HD650. Equipment Forums. The impedance (SPL sensitivity) of the K701/K702 headphones is rated in relation to 1 Volt, as are most studio grade cans. These pads are really easy to remove. The AKG K702 share the same style and build as the AKG K701 and AKG K712 PRO. The white with grey and brown accents differs from that of most other headphones. 11 December 2008 This way the plots are overlay-ed and it is easier to show the tonal balance differences.The headphone does not react much to higher output resistances other than in level (9.4dB). S.P.L. Max. 2. highest frequency. Interestingly the K701 becomes more efficient with these pads (about 4dB) in the mids and the treble peaks are somewhat less elevated. current: 56mA Fig. A ‘horizontal‘ frequency response curve on the shown frequency response plots on this website thus indicates a perceived ‘flat’ tonal signature. Below the K7XX vs the K701 but fitted with K7XX (K712) pads. The step response plot below  (Left, Right)This plot shows the impulse response/clarity is accentuated and peaks out 3dB above the mids.

The only artifacts of note are the slight differences in lumpiness between 900Hz and 2000Hz, and about 3-4dB lower energy above 10kHz on the Q701. As the seal of a headphone is of importance some experiments are done to see the effect. What I did was messed with front to get them sounding to my liking. This is described HERE in more detail. (Left and Right are superimposed)The dip around 4kHz is not a resonance in disguise. Thier sound is neutral, sweet and smooth providing long non-fatiguing listening sessions. Below the frequency response of the K701 (Left, Right) Channel matching is excellent. Frequency response (tonal balance) is the most sound-determining aspect of headphones. Above 18kHz the response drops off quickly but still shows response at least up to 30kHz. The treble extension gained 2dB at 20kHz. I do not use smoothing because some info about sound quality is lost when plots are smoothed. 99. It is a bit bass light but the bass itself sounds excellent and well textured. The bass response is full, accurate, and tight. ... but some of the sound differences are fairly subtle when you take a gander at the frequency response on both. Around 2.5kHz there is a little lingering (the small bump in the FR, it seems happy to vibrate at that frequency) but is very low in level. Below the CSD of the K701 via Kameleon (Left, Right superimposed) I think the dome section of the driver needed bit extra damping. Below the same plot but the mids are overlayed. Below an experiments with a disc made of soft 3-ply toilet paper where the plies are cut into discs and the 3 plies are pulled apart to form 3 very thin and fragile discs. These headphones are pretty highly regarded, although they kind of fly under the radar. As this is a dynamic headphone the frequency response might be amplifier output resistance dependent when certain higher output resistance amplifiers are used. 35 points. This small dip is entirely compensated in level by the Concha of the ear. The mids from 200Hz to 3kHz are pretty flat and make the mids sound ‘neutral’. Not an audiophile.''. Beyond 1ms the signal drops gradually and shows the bass roll-off. Frequency response: 10Hz to 39,800 kHz. What’s obvious here is that these pads won’t improve the bass response but rather slightly (2dB) increase the mids and deepen the 4kHz part which makes the sound less ‘forward’ and less bright. Link AKG Audio on Tumbler. This makes the bass sound ‘light’ but ‘tight’. AKG K701 vs Yamaha HPH-200.

Compared to the K612 the K701 is quite similar but the K612 is just slightly more extended and has a few dB more lower bass. Below the frequency response measured with and without the foam ring. AKG K702: Design. Bass hardly reacts. The mids are less accentuated when using these pads and ‘mellow out’. It is only available in white with grey/brown accents. The 100μs pulse shows the correct amplitude but the pulse on the top of the signal shows overshoot and quite a lot of ringing. 2 plies reduce the upper treble too much and ‘muffles’ the upper treble/air. They can be replaced but is expensive and not easy to DIY. I got the idea from a mod on HF, in which a quarter of the ring is cut out separately, covered with a layer of electrical tape on one side, and put back in place with the rest of the ring. To test this the headphone is measured via a low impedance amplifier (0.2Ω) and a high impedance amplifier (120Ω). Below the plot of the K701 with K7XX pads fitted.
