The K702 on the other hand is now my daily driver; I find myself reaching for it over all of the headphones I have here at the pad including the venerable HD600. I love the energetic nature of the mid-range and feel as though it provides some much-needed liveliness vs. the sometimes duller 712 and 612. but with my EF2A they are special!! more punch in the bass, more details, more clean, bigger stage. Below the phase response of the K612. Above 6kHz the phase shifts are steeper and thus potentially more audible.

I stopped listening to music regularly and for a long time I didn't realize that the X1 was to blame! Although every time I used it I would be impressed by its abilities, the sound was ultimately just too bass orientated for me; and also the treble tended towards a glassy tone in some music. So after some research, in steps the K612 Pro. Now this headphone is quite different. Less bass but better proportioned, the sound is more natural with a pleasing delicacy to the sound, particularly the treble, that although a little dry, is open, articulate, never harsh or sibilant and only very slightly rolled off at the top. The mid-band is detailed, expressive and free of any nasty colourations, however the upper mid-band does have a tendency towards the already mentioned dryness of tone, but that's really a minor quibble. Hi only just seen your post, but have seen & responded to your Inbox message to me on the same topic, but figured I'd copy & paste my response into this thread too, for the possible benefit of anyone reading.There’s nothing inherently wrong with a signature as flat as the 612’s is, but I think most people are going to appreciate the added energy that the 702 brings to the table. The K712 is a close second, but I may not pay the asking price for it as it tends to be pretty steep. I'm using my AKG K612 PRO headphone with my Fiio X3 2nd Gen dedicated DAP. Currently I don't own any headphone amp but planning to buy an A5. I'm gonna update this review when I do.

This thread is an introduction to the K612 (virtual unknown), and a comparison with the more popular K702.The headphone images very well and keeps various musical strands from merging into each other even in busy,complex mixes. Sound-staging is good but not a particularly strong point of this headphone, it keeps everything at a medium distance; not very deep or wide. However that suits me fine as I find headphones that are very adept at sound-staging somewhat artificial in their representation of the music, not really true to life at all. I have owned several other AKGs, including the K240s, the K702 65th Anniversaries, the and Q701 Quincy Jones Signatures (basically the same thing as an updated K701/702). The K612s sound-wise lie somewhere between the K240s and the K7-series, while having a unique sound signature of their own. A helpful article I put together for choosing would be The Best Headphone Amp for the AKG K701 & K702. Final Word
