AKG K701 Headphones

  • Conclusion: One of the top 3 headphones currently available at a price that is affordable. Music flows out of these and is incredibly transparent sounding. Paired with the right amplifier, it is as good as audio reproduction gets using headphones.
  • Pros: Magnificent tonal balance that rivals some very high-end loudspeakers. Let's you hear every last little thing on the recording. Powerful bass that is very well controlled. Sit perfectly on your head and just vanish.

AKG Acoustics K 701 headphones

  • Conclusion: Throughout the High End, the level of the good has gotten so darn good that honesty usually compels me to waffle a bit in the conclusion of a review. You pay a hefty price to go from pretty good to a wop bop a loobop a lop bam boom! As a result, we reviewers have to qualify everything.

  • Excerpt: But hold on there, Skippy—some of us use those cans in our prosumer studios, in recording sessions, and even in barn-burning late-night critical listening sessions where we employ ancillary equipment that would beggar your jaded high-end sensibilities.

SoundStage!

  • Summary: Sound "The AKG K701s had a smooth, even response and lots of inner detail, yet they weren’t at all analytical or peaky." They had "low, powerful bass with good detail," an "exquisite" midrange, and highs "befitting other AKG headphones.

Incredible sound

Good Gear Guide.au
25 September 2008
  • Summary: AKG's K701 headphones are some of the best on the market. They aren't as bass-heavy as some of their competition but the low-range notes are still impressive and when combined with the detailed mid-range and sweet highs, you get a fantastic, smooth audio experience.
  • Pros: Great treble notes, incredibly smooth sound, detailed mid-range, tight bass
  • Cons: Bass doesn't extend as deeply as on some competing units, requires an amplifier to get the full sound

  • Cons: Bassarmer Sound, Lieferumfang zu klein, Mikrofon fehlt, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden, Keine Farbauswahl verfügbar
