View Full Version : Over enthused family support to headphone purchase
12th August 2011, 10:09 PM
I had a recent laugh about committing funds to purchasing a set of AKG K702 headphones and NuForce HDP as headphone amp. Normally I meet with some resistance committing funds to my ongoing hifi adventure, but on this occasion I received unanimous support to proceed to purchase.
Hope I have not made a mistake!

That is very funny. You'll be right, but if you want something that offers a warmer listen then you might want to try something other than the k702s.
You might think you made a mistake as they might not sound that good for a month or so since k701/2 have a notoriously long run-in period.

I am getting rather used to the need for run in of my new purchases. The Naim Ovators I purchased a couple of months back were a bit screamy to start with, but have now opened up with increased bass, so know what you mean, thanks.

Yeah, good match. Both brands have not too dissimilar house sounds.

ha haa! I hear you! - funny how I received the same nod of approval when I got my GS1000i's ... if I remember rightly, "if it stops me having to listen to that noise whilst you have headphones on then I don't care how much it costs!"....sweet! :P
