AKG Q701 Open-back Over-ear Headphone Review

 

It feels weird to have a celebrity-endorsed set of cans take our 10, but the Q701s did it.

If you've got the juice to power these headphones, you'll lose yourself in easily one of the best headphones we've tested. While most celebrity-endorsed headphones typically get slaughtered in our ratings with poor audio performance to price, the AKG...

A top-class newcomer from AKG that's been developed with music legend Quincy Jones and it shows

Simply gorgeous sound ; Very close to our Sennheiser favourites but half the price

Very minor upper-bass hardness

Recommended!

AKG Q701

 

In the Q701s, AKG has produced a truly excellent pair of Quincy Jones-endorsed headphones.

Excellent built quality ; Great sound ; Comfortable fit

Fairly expensive ; Many equally good rivals

The AKG Q701s are a truly excellent pair of headphones, with which Quincy Jones can be proud to be associated. Their wide, flat and accurate sound puts them in a great position in competition with similarly priced headphones from Sennheiser, Beyer...

AKG Q 701 review

 

The AKG Q 701 headphones deliver superb sound quality with a high-end clarity that's all too rare. But we were slightly underwhelmed by their bass response.

Superb sound quality ; Comfortable ; Detachable cable and a spare in the box

Slightly underwhelming bass performance

The AKG Q 701s are a fine set of headphones, and Quincy Jones has made a sound decision in associating himself with them. Bass isn't their forte, but their crystal-clear mid and high frequencies make most music a delight to listen to, and they're...

This is a solid, great sounding set of cans. Fine value, too

Genuinely musical presentation; good for all types of music; well engineered

Not the snuggest fit on your head

Gamer turned Audiophile

 

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...

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...

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...

Unbelievable Quality

 

Up until January 2011, I had been using Sennheiser HD800\'s for everything: studio, travel, etc. I logged upwards of 1,000 hours over the course of 6 months. However, borrowing a pair of K701\'s from a buddy, I was blown away. He had his for a month,...
