Key features of the AKG K702

The designers of the AKG K702 headphones have gone to great lengths to ensure that they produce a perfect balance between resolution and smooth delivery. They are incredibly responsive headphones, you will not get any delay or outside noise coming in to distort the audio delivery. The ear cups do a great job of retaining the sound and channeling it directly into your ear.
The bass on the AKG K702 has deliberately been turned down slightly when compared to other headphones. This has been done so you will be able to hear the beats and the surrounding sounds very clearly, and not have the detail of any track drowned out by excessive bass.
The sound quality is achieved by the use of flat wire voice coils, and a Varimotion dual layer diaphragm. The cable also uses high-quality materials so the transfer of sound is as smooth as possible. All of these elements together provide the superb quality audio that the K702’s possess.
