AKG Q701

 

In the Q701s, AKG has produced a truly excellent pair of Quincy Jones-endorsed headphones.

Excellent built quality ; Great sound ; Comfortable fit

Fairly expensive ; Many equally good rivals

The AKG Q701s are a truly excellent pair of headphones, with which Quincy Jones can be proud to be associated. Their wide, flat and accurate sound puts them in a great position in competition with similarly priced headphones from Sennheiser, Beyer...

AKG Q701

 

This is a solid, great sounding set of cans. Fine value, too

Genuinely musical presentation; good for all types of music; well engineered

Not the snuggest fit on your head

Great audio reproduction. ; Comfortable design.

Poor isolation by design. ; Big and bulky headphones.

AKG Q701 Open-back Over-ear Headphone Review

 

It feels weird to have a celebrity-endorsed set of cans take our 10, but the Q701s did it.

If you've got the juice to power these headphones, you'll lose yourself in easily one of the best headphones we've tested. While most celebrity-endorsed headphones typically get slaughtered in our ratings with poor audio performance to price, the AKG...

AKG Q701

 

Excellent reproduction with a flat sounding frequency response extending well into the deep bass. Certainly good reproduction for classical music. For example, good recordings of pipe organ music sound as if at original venue.

When first connecting the lead to the headphones, it is a little difficult to line up the plug pins on the lead with the holes in the socket.
