Hi, where are these made? (I think my first question was deleted, since it's not visible)

Asked by: Tim_G
No Joe, the form returns that "oops we misplaced your results" and never submits... so I will repost here what I wasn't able to send thru the link you provided: "Hi, How come these are made in Slovakia? I was under the impression that, like the other hi-priced models (k812), they were also made in Austria. A lot of the reviews I saw also stated that, however, I haven't been able to find an Austria made model anywhere. I did purchase them (the serial number given is the one on the ones I have) but this is extremely disappointing from AKG, and definitely shouldn't be priced at the same levels as the Austrian models. Not to mention, the package is completely different (with this ridiculously huge useless box that can't even properly store the cable).... I do have other AKG headphones (k240, k271s) and those were made in Austria....  Extremely disappointing and really making me re-evaluate whether to stick with AKG at all, and even keep these." Thank you in advance.
