Great pair of open cans for the price and performance

Got the AKG 712 PRO after a long search and comparison for open back headphones. Not much reviews are found in the NET for these. The setup I am using is a iPhone7 plus with a Fiio USB cable to an ALPEN 2 DAC AMP. Have been using M50X from audio technica and Beyerdynamic custom one Pro for a few years, Good sounding heaphones though, but I wanted to add an open back for home listening. The search ended with AKG pro 712 with the price point being the deciding factor. I am glad to say that theese cans rock, the response across wide frequency range is simply amazing and the sound stage it delivered is far superior from the closed cans I have been owning. Clarity across mid and high with clear seperation in deep bass is astounding. The claim of 3db increase in lows is evident. There is no rumbling bass and people who enjoy the bass rather than expecting a rumble will certainly enjoy the sound signature. The support of DAC has to be mentioned as well, Driving directly from the phone was not much, Including the DAC/AMP certainly bought out the capability of these headphones. Clamping force is adequate and no adjustments needed. The leather band supports well and for varied head sizes. Its just the bang for the buck and I definitely recommend this for long hours of listening based on both sound signature and comfort of wearing.

Support of Headphone Zone has been amazing with quick and secure shipment and prompt communication. Appreciate your help and service.

P.S: Not advisable for office or public space listening. Intended for indoor use. Sound leak since open cans is inevitable.

Chandra Raju (Bengaluru)

I chose these over Hifiman Sundara and I don't regret the decision at all. The question is: How do I know that these are better than Sundara? Easy... after few days I bought Sundara as well. :)

For day to day listening I chose Sundara. I bring these babies out for special occasions. AKG sound very punchy compared to Sundara. In terms of soundstage and Imaging AKGs are lightyears ahead. There is a three dimensionality to the sound. Only problem is that AKGs are not built well.

So glad to know that you love them:) We look forward to serving you again. Happy listening!

Ankur Khairatkar
Amazing sound signature

I was in search of a decent open back headphones with a wide sound staging and flat response. AKG K712 pro are right on the money. I also own the Audio Technica ath-m50x, and I have to say they sound harsh in comparison with the AKGs. The overall sound of the AKGs is very balanced. The mids and the sub mids are the area where these headphones really shine. The treble is mellowed. The bass is just perfect for serious referencing and/or studio monitoring. You will require a decent amp and source to get these things to shine though. All in all I would say the best headphones for the price range out there. Thanks headphonezone for making these available in India at a competitive price.

Great headphones. I did not expect so much bass.

First of all a shout out to headphonezone. I could buy this headphones for few thousand less on other online stores but i had previous experience with headphonezone and i was right. Even though there was unrest in bengaluru, i got my headphones within 3 days and the packaging, invoicing and support is top notch.

I don't write really big reviews so i will try to sum it up.
This headphone is notable for having a good dynamic range as well as soundstage. The middle and high frequencies does not get muddled, no matter how much the bass is.
I do feel that this headphone is a bit power hungry as connecting it to laptop or phone provides average sound.

I'm a Audiophile Now !!!

Best headphones I have ever heard.I have been using Philips & ATH for nearly 10 years.My prior headphone were the Philips SHP2700 (semi-open) & ATH m30x (close back) which I thought good but K712 are superior in every way to the SHP2700 and the ATH m30x headphone I had,The k712 are smooth with realistic tight bass & sound stage is impressive & also headphones is shaking every time like subwoofer again I love it... They are comfortable for long time use and i use to Iisten to 90% of R&B & Hip-hop music and after that Rock,Hard metal. I think that i m not a audiophile type but it turns out i'm.

I do not believe you can go wrong with these phones unless you are a serious loud bass head.I'm using Xonar Essence STX sound card... for high gain (+12db) I use 64 to 300 Ohms setting & sound leakage is so minimum at 50% no one will notices that. I m use to listen 35 to 45% of my full volume cant go up anymore.

After EQ, one of the best headphones at any price

This is one of the best combinations of comfort+sound there is. I can easily wear these for hours and in terms of sound quality this will beat almost all headphones twice or thrice this price. The only issue is the stock sound which is lacking bass energy. But nowadays this is not an issue especially if you are an android user. Poweramp EQ or wavelet can be used to bring out the bass energy. For Windows PC there is Equalizer APO. Speaking of EQ, the 712 takes bass EQ really well. I was able to drive it from my redmi phone without much issues but my dedicated dac amp setup definitely sounded better. Now speaking about the sound : Most of the time when listening to this,I cannot work. It's because Id want to stop whatever I'm doing and just listen to it. It's that beautiful, especially songs like Anima Christi by Marco Frisina. The soundstage and dynamics is so beautiful, almost as if looking at an art unfolding in front of you. Infact it's soundstage is one of the best at any price.
Speaking of the excellent dynamics, it's another aspect that makes this headphone's presentation so good. The sound is best described as relaxed with a lot of room to breathe. Switching from a lower tier headphone this is infact the other big thing you will notice-The movement of the sound..Its liquid smooth, whereas lower end headphones will struggle with the dynamics. With these you don't get smacked in your face by the kick drum. Rather they sound softer and leaning towards more a musical presentation that breathes. Due to this and the stock sound I wasn't blown away in the first listenbas I wasn't expecting this type of sound. I was expecting the 'smack in the face' kind of kick drum.. But then after EQ and some listening I started noticing all the intricacies in the sound. The detailing is quite amazing. Infact I found their techniques capabilities far outeprform similar priced headphones like HD598 or any of the 5xx series or M50x or anything under 20k. I was actually surprised that i could get it for 19k, because this quality is only heard in higher tier of headphones. I had the LCD2 some time back and I didn't enjoy their presentation to this extend(although being a planar they do some things better). For people who love music that sounds like big spaces (orchestral, cathedral, Gregorian chants, ambient music, space rock etc) this headphone would be one of the best at any price. It's also good for trance and modern techno. You might need to EQ down the highs for some tracks with too much highs. I would not recommend this headphone for heavy metal and hard rock fans. I tried and i felt its presentation does not match those two genres. I found it to be good for everything else. To conclude Id say this one is a must have for headphone collectors(except metalheads)

Thanks for the detailed feedback, surely its going to help or customers to make an informed decision.

Comfort Galore

Had it for 4 years now. No creaking, no rattling, absolute units that have survived the test of time. Sound quality is classic AKG plus a little extra. Be ready to amp them, for me they run at 12 to 3 o clock on the Magni 3+, and they love as much current as possible.
