AKG K812

12 Reasons why AKG K812 is better

than the average

1.Vastly higher high-frequency
54000Hzvs 25213Hz (the average)
vs 100000Hz (best: Sony MDR-1ABT)
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.Distinctly lower low-frequency
5Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.Explicitly lower impedance
36Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
4.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
5.Much higher sound pressure level
110dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
7.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
8.Significantly bigger driver unit
53mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
9.Has included ear pads
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
10.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
11.Considerably longer cable
3mvs 2m (the average)
vs 6m (best: AKG Q 701)
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
12.Is open backed
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device is designed to allow sound out through the back of the earcup and provides very natural and accurate sound. It's good for home listening.
