'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Finding a studio-worthy headset can be a chore -- and they can run pretty pricey. If you're in the market for a value headset, check out the AKG Pro Audio K702 headphones. Most online retailers list them at $409, but you can score them on Amazon right now for only $137, saving you a massive $272.

These headphones use 3D foam ear pads and a leather headband. Weighing less than 1lb, these lightweight headphones were designed for comfortable wear during long hours. Each headphone is individually tested and marked with a serial number to ensure you receive a high-quality device.

The Pro Audio K702 headphones operate with an open reference, which allows some sound to come through the headphones. They have a rated impedance of 62 Ohms and operate with frequencies ranging from 10 to 39800Hz.

While most headphones use round wires to deliver sound, these use flat-wire technology to deliver sound with more accuracy and pulse response. Plus, it helps makes the headset more lightweight.

We don't know how long this deal will last, so if you spend long hours working with audio, be sure to add them to your cart today. Prime Members will also get free two-day shipping ahead of the Prime Day Early Access Sale.
