  • Excerpt: I use these at length of sound editing for video so they should be comfortable to wear at length. The sound quality is excellent for the price. The thoughtless and sadistic design for the headband across the top of the head leaves virtual divots imprinted into your head that last for hours.
  • Pros: Clear Sound
  • Cons: Pricey / Poor Value

  • Excerpt: I've been using the K701's for a few weeks now and the sound is really impressive. Unfortunately, after less than an hour of wear I've found the headband digs into your scalp causing an irritating and even mildly painful spot on my head.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: They get a four only because of the headband. The "pads" (i.e. bumps) on the under side of the K7xx series is, in a word, awful. They phones are comfortable up to a point at which you realize the thing digging into the top of your head is the pad!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Headband

  • Excerpt: Absolutely flat response at low and medium volume levels. Great for composing and mixing. What you hear in the headphones is what you hear in the studio monitors (assuming the monitors are calibrated correctly). Very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Excellent value, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I use this product as a reference check while mixing. These headphones are especially good for hearing midrange and high frequency issues in the mix. Any sibilance problems will stand out clearly with these headphones.

  • Summary: The AKG K701s are very good headphones. The information retrieval these headphones show up is very, very good! Vocals are also very good with the K701s in my opinion, and you can hear how good and badly recorded the songs are with the K701s.
