AKG K702 Reference Studio Headphones - Open-Back

Gearank Recommendation

The K702 appeared on our recommended list for Open Back Headphones from June 2017 until July 2018 when it was removed due to being out-ranked by other headphones.


The AKG K702 is a set of studio reference headphones that are equipped with a 3D-foam earpads to provide comfort for long wearing sessions.

The flat-wire voice coils and patented Varimotion two-layer diaphragm provides a reasonably accurate level of frequency response making them suitable for precision listening, mixing and mastering.

They don't have overly sibilant highs and his makes them less fatiguing while wearing them for long hours.
