  • Excerpt: The sound on these headphone is very clean and neutral. (Hese are going to reveal the limits of your setup, and will make you want to improve your system. Like others mentioned, the headband is a little unconfortable....the cable is 10 feet, so a good lenght..
  • Pros: Clear Sound

  • 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: the midbass on these headphones is like nothing i have heard before. Quite detailed with a non-fatiguing overall signature.

  • Excerpt: I've owned a lot of headphones in this price range, and the only ones I've ever felt comfortable using in desperate mixing sessions have been the Sennheiser HD600 and, very recently, the AKG K701.

  • Excerpt: These things are totally awesome, they look awesome, they feel so awesome when you have them on. Most comfortable headphones out there. Only reason I gave them 4 stars is because they are light on the bass.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight

  • Summary: First thing first, the K701 sounded very cheap new, but improves a lot over time. There was two bumps of noticeable sound difference at sumwhere 150 hours and 400 hours. I'm the first to give a review, will edit after more ppl give more opinion on the K701.

  • Summary: Of all the headphones I've heard over the years, the AKG K701s come the closest to being completely neutral as any. They sound, to my ears, like a good set of planer speakers. No boomy, ill-defined bass, no recessed mids, and especially no piercingly bright highs.

  • Summary: These popular all-arounders emphasize detail that shows off pop and classical especially well. Jazz is fine, but best served by the sultry sound of something like a Senn HD650. The K701 comes with their own plastic headphone stand.

  • Summary: The 701 is a very nice headphone set. I purchased mine from J&R Electronics online and received them in under one business week. I was using Sennheiser 280s until they failed up to the first of January 2009. The Sennheisers were at the time the best headphones I have listened to.
