The AKG K712 Pro is a premium over-ear, open-back headphone well-suited for serious listening sessions at home or in a studio environment. Its expansive soundstage and higher overall sound quality make it excellent for music and TV where detail and spatial representation are key. The Earfun Air Pro 2, on the other hand, is a more affordable, stemmed-design earbud with closed backs and active noise-canceling, offering good portability and versatility for everyday use, including exercise and travel. It's a wireless option with additional features like a microphone for calls, longer battery life, and sweat resistance. If you're looking for a high-fidelity audio experience and don't need portability or wireless functionality, go for the AKG K712 Pro. However, if you require versatility, noise isolation for travel, and the convenience of wireless earbuds, the Earfun Air Pro 2 is the better choice. Give Feedback

"AKG has created a mini-masterpiece in my opinion. I enjoy this headphone a great deal and it will become my go-to reference headphone for the time being. She is slick, sexy, well-balanced, and crazy comfortable."

Headphone Addict

Peter Susic | September 2021
"There’s a lot to like about EarFun Air Pro 2. The best thing about them is the active noise cancellation, which works almost as well as the best true wireless earbuds out there. The audio quality is funky but enjoyable. Good dynamics and a wider soundstage save its presentation. Everyone, apart from the most diehard audiophiles, should be happy with it."
