  • Summary: I owned these for a couple months before upgrading to the HD800. While using them, I used them with the ODAC+O2 combo as well as the Fiio e17. There's no doubt these are supposed to be headphones for home use. They're very open, leak sound and are just generally very large.
  • Pros: Good soundstage, clarity, removable cable
  • Cons: Sterile sound, costly in various countries, bumps on headband

  • Summary: From AKG's website - they describe the Q701 as: Quote: Sparkling harmonics, incredibly low distortion and unequalled realism in the lower frequencies – it’s the huge, airy, three-dimensional sound available only in the finest high-end speaker systems and microphones.
  • Pros: Well balanced, open, clear, expansive sounding, stylish and well built. Fast and reasonably well detailed. Great value for money (street value)
  • Cons: Headband comfort (bumps), lacks some bass impact (slight), imaging can be a little too left/right (lacks some center image clarity)

  • Conclusion: L’AKG Q 701 offre une superbe qualité de son d’une clarté trop rare. Mais nous avons été un peu déçus par le rendu des basses.
  • Pros: son de très bonne qualité, confortable, câble détachable, un câble de rechange est fourni.
  • Cons: les performances des basses sont un peu décevantes.

AKG Q 701 im Test: offener Kopfhörer mit exzellentem Klang, aber leichter Bassschwäche

CNET
29 April 2011
  • Summary: Niemand, der noch klar bei Verstand ist, würde von Kopfhörern mit Justin Biebers Gesicht auf der Verpackung überragende Leistung erwarten. Bei Musik-Legende Quincy Jones, der unter anderem auch Michael Jacksons Thriller-Album produzierte, sieht das Ganze schon anders aus.
  • Pros: hervorragender Klang, komfortabel, abnehmbares Kabel, zusätzliches Ersatzkabel im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: etwas schwache Bass-Performance
