Monoprice Monolith M1060 review Even old mainstays like the AKG K701 and Audio-Technica ATH-AD900—both rockstars in their own right—are mismatched against the Monolith M1060. These are, without a doubt, the highest sound quality to cost ratio in the headphone world and only the [...]

AKG Q701 The design of the AKQ Q701 headphones is very similar to that of the less high-end K601 and K701, at least outwardly. That's no bad thing; the Q701s, like their predecessors, look very stylish, even if the lime green versions aren't perhaps the most [...]

I've Found My Holy Grail of Headphones: The AKG Q701 When comparing it side-by-side with the Sennheiser HD600 and the Beyerdynamic DT880—its most oft-compared brethren—the Q701's soundstage just made my music feel “alive”. It made me want to bang my head and groove every time I put it on. And two years [...]

The Sound of AKG: AKG Acoustics K514 & K701 Review

Visually Impressive…The K701 is AKG Acoustics’ top-of-the-line headphones, marketed as their premium class reference headphones. It is little wonder for the price point of high in the hundreds. The headphones sports a new ‘3D-Foam’ ear pad design using a soft velvety material. This design enables the driver to be pointed at the ear for an optimal listening angle. As with any high-end headphones, it has an open construction, built with AKG’s flat-wire voice coil technology and...

AKG Q701

We were starting to think that a musician’s endorsement was something of a death knell for audio equipment, but the Q701’s – the flagship product in AKG’s Quincy Jones-sponsored line-up – proves that theory conclusively wrong. Where Jay-Z and Dr Dre’s names on the packaging of the Skullcandy Aviators and Monster Beats respectively counts for no more than the assurance that you’ll be paying over the odds for what lies within, even if they weren’t available for a decent chunk under their £499...

well, first off you should not be in a hurry to spend thousands of dollars, and it is premature to have narrowed it down to just two choices already.personally, i'm not a fan of b&w. their speakers sound quite nasal to me, perhaps some kind of narrow midrange bump. maybe they don't do that as much anymore, but that's what i remember from my last listening.the linkwitz thing is just crazy, and not in a good way. dipoles require a lot of room tuning with no...

SPEC RSA-F33EX Integrated Amplifier

The SPEC company and its founder, Mr. Shirokazu Yazaki, as well as its main constructor, Mr. Banno Tsutomu, have a special place in my heart. I was the first person from outside Japan to test the company's products and my relationship with Mr. Shirokazu is especially close. It was no coincidence that he described the history of his career for High Fidelity, later copied many times by other magazines an portals all over the world (see: Moja prywatna historia audio (My private audio history)....
