Summary: I purchased these recently as I already own a pair of Seinheisser momentums. They're fantastic headphones, but they hurt my ears after a while as the pad rests on the actual ear. The AKG arrived and I must admit I don't have a keen ear for audio.
Take care to match them carefully or be disappointed - not suitable for portable devices

Summary: Pros Very detailed sound in the treble and midrange Long cable supplied Feel well made Cons Need a lot of amplifier power to get value out of them (don't even bother with a phone/tablet/iPod) Analytical sound great for monitoring but lack... well... fun!
Summary: The sound is flawless at all frequencies and at any volume. Simply the best. Get the Fiio E12 portable amplifier if you are going to use them with your IPod or else they will not be loud enough. The iPod simply does not have the capability to drive such large speakers at a high volume.
Summary: brought these based on what hifi reviews, wait rose still selling for 500 pounds. beats Dr dre beats by a mile. if you want rap/heavy rock forget these if you have a wide range including classical n jazz and modern stuff such as imagine dragons/patterns/sub focus these r your babies
Summary: I have or had Sennheiser 598, Bayerdynamics DT770 pro (32Ohm), Sony MDR-MA900 and these headphones. While i think they are all very good headphones, these Q701 are my favourites. Sound quality is great, and why these stand out as my favourites is most largest soundstage and spaceness out of those...
Summary: The only other Stereo headphones I have used are the Bob Marley Exodus headphones which I thought where very good with my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. I have had Various "Gaming Headphones" such as Turtle beaches and Tritons.
Summary: I originally bought K702's, after reading many on-line discussions, as I had become dissatisfied with the claustrophobic sound of my Sennheiser HD595's and the lack of body of my Beyer Dynamic DT431's. I had the impression that these phones might be a different experience. How right that was!
Summary: I read the reviews and was expecting these to be amazing, well they weren't. The packaging is nice, you proceed to open them and as you take them out you realise just how light and plasticy they are, they don't at all feel like a high end quality item, they feel cheap.
