Well, I don't really like headsets that are too analytical, flat and dry, extremely neutral or have sparkling highs. Nothing better then a warm and fun headset. For me at least. But again I need to try it all out first.
It's extremely balanced, bass hits with plenty of body when there is bass in a track. Mids are fluid and rich with detail (though not as engaging as the HD650) and treble sparks with energy when they are told to.
I was only making a relative comparison between the K702 Annies and K712, they are really nearly identical to one another except for the slightly more fun sigature the K712 has. Something that can be easily rectified by swapping the default Annies pads for the K712. The Annies and K712 are fun headphones to listen to, very enjoyable for all types of genres and usage.
If I had to be deserted on an island with just a DAP, I'd happily take the Annies with me anyday.
Headsets = headphones with an intergrated mic.
Heapdhones = as it is, headphones by itself.
At least that's how I view them.
