If you're after an immersive experience with wide, natural sound for music and TV at home, the AKG K712 Pro is open-back and offers a broader soundstage, but lacks features like a microphone and wireless connectivity. They're more comfortable for long listening sessions and have a better build quality, but they're not suitable for noisy environments, require a cable, and might benefit from a dedicated amplifier. On the other hand, the Sennheiser Accentum Plus is versatile with both wireless and wired options, active noise cancelling for quiet listening in noisy places, and low latency suitable for TV and gaming. They're also sweatproof, more portable, have a quality microphone for calls, and the battery life supports long usage away from a charger. If you need to block out background noise, have flexibility in connectivity, or use your headphones for calls and movement, the Sennheiser would be the better choice. However, for critical listening in a quiet environment where sound quality and openness are priorities, the AKG would be preferable. Give Feedback
