Ahmad Bilal says:

Great review. But as you said, these aren’t very sturdy. For someone like me who commute on a motorcycle, what would you recommend me, which is also very portable? (Say, something like the Sony’s 1000 XM3’s, but audiophile quality audio). I am mostly sittig in office environment so ANC isn’t really needed. But i’d like it more if they have wireless audio but i can do without them if sound quality is good.

Ryan Holm says:

First! Not even interested in a new pair of headphones but your video is well done as always!

Jv Luyong says:

when its not available in massdrop could you still recommend k702?
Nice video and is the FiiO E10K good enough?

Cons29 says:

From the get go, i was like nice video. Then i checked, you’re channel is new? Either way good job on the vid man. Looking to get this headphone, i have a couple of decent ones (hd650 and he400i) and just doing some research here and there.

JD Gaming says:

I love them they are the best headphones i ever owned but then again i didn’t own many haha

SimplyJojo says:

You deserve way more subs than you have. Excellent editing/sound/ and overall video. Good job. Here’s a new sub

Hey Man, I’ve been checking out your channel and I gotta say you have some pretty high quality content. 4k footage and well shot scenes really add to the professionalism and i just wanted to say keep at it. You could end up pretty popular!

Achilles Feel says:

Just found your channel and realized we share many similar interests in tech. Great job on the videos and I look forward to seeing more from you in the future. P.s. I have owned the k7xx’s for well over a year and I am still more than happy with them.

Michael Pujos says:

Superb review, beautifully shot. If you can get them, try the JVC HP DX-1000 one day. These are my headphones since several years and They are truly special and fantastic!

Andy A says:

Wait, so what pair of headphones are you comparing the AKG K7XX to, the Sennheiser 595 or the Sennheiser HD 598?
