"A solid pair of cans for music production and mixing"4.0 starson by sys40198
-Great sound: Natural, revealing, and detailed sound
-Great spatial sonic field
-Detachable cable is always a plus for me
-I got these for under $300, so pretty good deal compared to other headphone of comparable quality
Cons: -Kind of "fugly" and Bulky (if you care bout that)
-Poor isolation & leak noise, not the best to use in public, but that's not what they're made for
-Sort of inefficient as far as power, you'll need to drive these harder than other headphones
Summary: In my very subjective opinion, the k702s are great studio headphones for the price.
The k702s have an open sound, very detailed in the mid-range. The highs might be a little "bright", but it actually compliments my studio monitors. The low-end is maybe a little understated, but still deep and well defined. But the long/gradual roll-off actually gives me a better idea of what's happening w/the bass in the mix & and if anything, it makes me add a little more bass (better than the other way around for EDM).
The k702 are awesome studio cans. They are accurate & honest enough to make reliable mixes. They're fast and responsive to EQ adjustments. What I find the most useful is that it is a great tool to work w/the fine details that can be harder to find with monitors.
While a great for a studio, i think it's weaker as a general purpose headphone. And they're honest, not flattering. Some headphones make everything sound good, these wont. Also, they're open-backed, which means poor external isolation and the k702s will project sounds outward. Totally cool in a studio/at home, less cool while studying in the library. They also need an amp to sound at their best. I'm not an "audiophile". I mainly listen to music on the interweb, iphone/itunes & usually end up using other headphones b/c K702s are a real soft on those devices, bulky & awkward to take everywhere.
The K702s are amazing for certain applications, but depending on what you want there may be better options out there
