If you're after premium sound quality primarily for music and TV at home, the AKG K712 Pro offers an immersive open-back design, but it has a poor microphone and lacks wireless capability. For versatility, including good call quality, gaming, and exercise, the cheaper Earfun Wave Pro provides active noise cancelling, is sweatproof, and supports wireless use with a long battery life, making it suitable for a broader range of activities, despite its slightly less expansive soundstage. The AKG is typically wired, needing an amplifier for best quality, while the Earfun offers both wired and wireless convenience. 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."
