How it’s Made: AKG K702 Headphones

The Discovery show “How it’s Made” episode 14×09 just aired and one of the four 5-minute segments in that particular episode showed how headphones are made- more specifically the AKG K702. Check out the YouTube video to see the clip.

Thanks for the great assembly vid, very informative.

This is so informative as well as really interesting to watch, especially for all of us who are so into music gears.While the video and the process is extremely interesting, it also shows just how boring it is to be a part of the production line. Imagine soldering your 150th headphone together before heading home, and waking up the next morning finding another 150 headphones

I always enjoy seeing how it’s made. but I really like AKG products. Plus I think they make some of the best Microphones and headphones.Samuel

The video is nice, but I only managed to get about half way through. The music is infuriating. :/

Interesting. Making headphones is more labour-intensive than I thought. No wonder they’re expensive.

Very interesting since I’ve got the K702. I didn’t think it was that complex. As Scooter said, no wonder why it’s that expensive. What might cost the most isn’t the parts but the whole assembly process and the factory.

I just got my AKG K702 today! yay. I love them v.much. Imagine my surprise to see them being shown on discovery science How it’s made! Cool. Now I can enjoy my lovely cans plus say I’ve seen them being made in a factory line. How awesome is that? thankx.

“silent to all but one” … except for the leakage because these are open back! LOL

Anyway, very enjoyable. After a lot of research, these cans are on my list. :)
