User Review

yodmed a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review
6 September 2013
  • Summary: It's a 2013 model, actually. First impressions, on comparing this to the Grado SR-125 the AKG's are replacing: It was readily apparent that the AKG's had an airier, sort of more crystalline sound.

Gamer turned Audiophile

Barry F., Newegg
19 June 2012
  • Summary: I mostly listen to melodeath (in flames-style stuff) but dabble in everything (hence audiophile). These do everything well except maybe dubstep/rap. Some people like punchy bass in rock/metal.. not me. I got these from headroom, but they didn't have a review on the 'egg and they deserve one.
  • Pros: Comfortable - the only more comfortable cans I've owned were siberias back when icemat was making them (pre steel-series) Bright - Not for everyone, but these really shine in mid to high ranges. The bass is there; its rich and clean, doesn't mud the rest of the ranges.. but it doesn't have the pu...
  • Cons: Price. While these are awesome, there are cans out there far cheaper that are ALMOST as good. I'm looking at you, grado. These have a similar sound, a bit more balanced. If you like the SR60i/80i/120is you won't be disappointed until you compare the prices.

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. honestly better than the Sennheiser's just require some time to fill out
  • Pros: Superb sound quality
  • Cons: at least 100 hrs. required break in time

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.

Great product

Am Bailey, Amazon

  • 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.
