Fantastic price!
I bought a pair...
Bought these for about $200 in NYC a decade ago and they were a bargain then.
The 702's are there too in black for the same price
The 701s appealed more to me. Don't know why
And ordered - No thought required at this price, they're replace my K550s when noone else is sat next to me!. Though I'm nervous to see what B-stock means, hopefully just signifies that they're refurb rather than being covered in scratches or something like that
Can you get replacement pads for these? If they're refurb might be worth getting new ones...
From what I understand they are pretty well like new. Refurbished by AKG
Doesn't have a detachable cable, which is alright if you are willing to fix it every time there is a lose/damaged connection.
What's the driver, got to be 50mm for that big price.

You can get official replacement pads, although they are pretty expensive. I would imagine refurbished headphones have earpads in very good condition though.

I went for these ones the other day: amazon.co.uk/dp/…7G/

They work great.

The K702 costs just over £100 new now (K701 and K702 are essentially the same, the only difference being the detachable mini XLR headphone jack iirc). So although it is somewhat of a flagship, reference quality headphones, its not that much more than the refurbished price.

Ditto. Had the 701's for a few years. No one will be disappointed at this price. Just pair them with decent equipment.
33% more.

Because you didnt spot the 702 perhaps?
Quite possibly! Plus I like the colour

What is the difference please
I think it's that the cable is detachable
I prefer the colour of the 701
Good price for 701

Ok, it was about the type of jack. Couldnt see the specs ln the page and google search showed 6.3mm jack. Was asking if 6.3 to iphone connection possible but it s irrelevant now. It s 3.5mm apparently.

There's always adapters, if need be.
Should add about a quid to the price
Do these work with Xbox and have mic
No mic
I have the original Austrian made 701. You need a good dedicated headphone amplifier to get the best out of them.
I have a pair of superlux HD668B's, would these be an upgrade from them? They'd be used for gaming, general web browsing etc....

Yes they would be. I hate those headphones

They don't have a mic built in. I have been my 702's with a astro mixamp for years and the ridiculously wide soundstage and high resolution is practically cheating on multiplayer. They sound incredible too.

Can buy a small 2.5” male to female extension and have them connected. If it break just replace the extension

That will help if the connector gets faulty or the cable breaks around there. It doesn't help if the fault is closer to the headphone, say where the cable attaches to the headphone
I regret selling my set a couple of years ago.. fantastic headphones. So detailed and bass can be boosted with a mod. Stick a mod mic on the side and boom a great choice for FPS
Mine arrive tomorrow!
Thanks for this. I wanted a pair of at home headphones but always struggled to find some for the right price.

Just bought a new pair of K702s from ‘Andertons’. Was a little more at £100 but they’re new and have the detachable cable which is normally what breaks on most of my headphones.
Is it just me, or does anyone else find these as ugly as F#@k?
