"AKG’s brings state-of-the-art headphone performance into the studio with the new K 702. Like the now-legendary K 701, these headphones are the world’s first with flat-wire voice coils that enables better control of its diaphragms for unparalleled signal-tracking accuracy. The K 702’s 2-layer Laminate Varimotion drivers self-dampen spurious resonances that could color and distort the sound, plus they deliver incredibly wide 10 — 39,800 Hz response so you can hear every note and musical nuance perfectly.

The K 702’s 3D-Form variable-thickness ear pads precisely aim the drivers into the ear canal for maximum sonic detail and greatly-enhanced imaging so that you can truly hear everything in your mix. Thanks to AKG’s soft, genuine leather headband and gimbal-suspended ear cups, the K 702 delivers automatically-adjusting, comfortable fit for any-sized head that is easy to wear even during long studio sessions.

The K 702 has a rugged stage blue finish that is designed to stand up to tough handling and constant use. The K 702’s input cable has a locking mini-XLR connector so that it can be quickly removed for storage or servicing. The cable is made from 99.99% oxygen-free copper wire to avoid signal loss or distortion.

The K 702 is hand-built by experienced craftspeople in AKG’s Vienna, Austria factory, carefully-tested, serialized and backed by a two-year warranty.

Excellent headphones, good value.


I think these are excellent sounding headphones. A bit over-pronounced on the bass by my estimate, but I prefer dead-flat tonal balance so I think these will be great for most and even a bit bass lite for some. I find them very comfortable, though I prefer them with the symmetrical pads (like those on the K612). The detachable chord is a nice feature. I also have K612's and consider them a better overall value. Overall, I slightly prefer the K702 for music and the K612 for movies.

I love them but just one problem.


I've been using these headphones for about a year now and the right earcup suddenly cut out on the UK site they don't have any support for them so now they are useless to me as no one can give me any support in this. I would love to fully stand behind this product but then they really need to make sure the durability for a pro product is better than this.



Good cans for those who dont have room treatment


Had mine for 4 years now! Love em. Wish i had a way to make them closed back for recording, but ive made do with k44s
