Fantastic Sound

  • Summary: If you're willing to pay the fairly steep price, these headphones are some of the best made, but be prepared to buy an amp if you don't have one already.
  • Pros: solid construction, decent comfort, huge soundstage, excellent sound quality in general
  • Cons: a lot of outside noise, sound leaks, definitely need an amp to shine

Excellent product!

  • 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. If you need to work and not disturb others, these are a great choice.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Excellent value, Lightweight

Product Review: AKG K701 Headphones

29 February 2012
  • Excerpt: My name is Brendan Evjen. I actually mix through these headphones, despite industry wisdom to mix through traditional monitors. I achieve amazing results! I've worked with Chris Vrenna (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Gnarls Barkley, etc.) Ken Andrews (Failure, Chris Cornell, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), David Reilly (God Lives Underwater, Rob Zombie, etc.) and many others... the results have been stunning. These cans do the job. Nuff said!
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Even and uncolored sound, Lightweight, Plug em in easy enough, They don't weigh you down, Totally durable, Versatile
  • Cons: None that I can think of

Great for reference and detail.

  • 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. A very useful tool for hearing unwanted artifacts that result from compression, EQ, vocal tuning, reverb, etc.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use

  • 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. These AKGs really show do up on things in the music and your set up. In my opinion, these headphones don't do euphony. They are neutral and revealing!!

Reference Class Headphones.....with amp!

  • Excerpt: I recently bought a new pair of these from B & H Photo. The last time I bought these, a couple of years ago, I did not like these at all. They sounded overly thin, lacked body, sounded too harsh and bright in the upper mids/lower treble, dry, the bass sounded thin, weak, and rolled off. Needless to say, I quickly sold them. My Sennheiser 650's literally smoked them! At that time, I did not have a good CD player, and a lousy amp.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Exceptional detail, Lots of sparkle on top, Reference class sound, Spacious sound stage, Tight accurate bass
  • Cons: Hard to drive, Inefficient, Needs good amp source, Needs lots of current

Excellent all-around headphone

  • Excerpt: Overall it is a fantastic sounding headphone for the price and it is extremely comfortable. The nice thing is that it will sound great on almost anything but if you want to get crazy with the amps and sound cards you can get even better sound.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact
  • Cons: Bulky/Heavy

Excellent Headphones

  • Excerpt: These are fantastic headphones once you get them broken in. I use them daily for audio editing and some mixing. They are extremely comfortable and have very clean, clear sound that allows me to pickup on edits or problem frequencies better than when I monitor through my mains, though they won't beat a good room and good monitors for mixing. I will say that they are very large. Much larger than the Sennheiser HD600.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight, Versatile

Love Them

  • Excerpt: [...] I was glad to see some airbag cushion and the box factory sealed. This way I know I'm not getting a used, fake or refurbished product. Overall they are great. There are tons of reviews all over the internet on these, so I won't repeat what you can read elsewhere. Just note you need a good source, good headphone amp and good dac to get the best sound out of these.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Comfortable
