AKG Q 701

Ryan M. White, CNET
12 January 2012
  • Summary: honestly some of the best pro quality headphones on the market, straight out of the package the bass does suffer a bit, but after listening to the Beatles "Revolver" a couple hundred times the bass cleans up.
  • Pros: Superb sound quality
  • Cons: at least 100 hrs. required break in time

  • Summary: TL;DR Review of the AKG Q701’sAccentuated Mids: Enhances most female vocals, also forwards vocals, “livens” synthesizers in electronic music. Can cause vocals to sound uneven due to the 2khz bump.Grainy/Textured Treble: Gives texture and dynamics to ride cymbals and high hats, may force treble into songs that suffer with treble. i.e. Metal genres.
  • Pros: Enormous Soundstage, Solid Bass Impact, Accentuated Mids, Textured Treble, Durable, Velour Earpads, Big Earcups
  • Cons: Weak Center Imaging, Lean Bass, Unnatural mids for some songs, Painful Headband, Big Earcups, Pick with sources

  • 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. Now, we've engineered it into the most accurate and responsive reference headphones we've ever produced, the Q 701s. Hear music exactly as the artist intended in true surrounding sound.
  • 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)

  • Summary: Sound was clear, but felt really weak. Bass was disappointing, also the build quality - very plasticy feel - would have expected more from 250€ headphones.

AKG Q701

Dom "Domx", Amazon
23 January 2015
  • Summary: These sound OK but the sound leaks so much that they seem pretty pointless if people are in the same room. They're OK to stop the neighbours hearing any noise but people will not be able to watch TV or listen to something else if you are listening through these in the same room, whether listening to music, TV, you tube videos etc every sound leaks through these. Completely open and zero noise reduction.

AKG Q701 Headphones

Mr. M. D. Brocket, Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: Really rate these headphones. They were bought as a replacement for my aging Grado SR225's. They worked straight of the box and the sound detail and comfort levels are simply fantastic. The Grado's are very good headphones but they've never been comfortable to wear for long unlike these from AKG. they leak sound just like the Grado's which is down to the construction of the 'phones.
