Sennheiser HD 660 S I also think that many will prefer them to the AKG Q701, which sound thinner and colder. The are better ear-charmers, even if they're not technically superior to that pair. Comparing them directly to the AKG Q701 and the classic [...]

AKG Q701 review The AKG Q 701s may be ludicrously big and green, but design isn't their real talking point (honest). The flagship in AKG's Quincy Jones-endorsed product range, and closely based on the company's K701 model, these over-ears have been residents of the [...]

AKG Q701 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 [...]

I've Found My Holy Grail of Headphones: The AKG Q701 Most obvious would be the Q701's cousins: AKG's K612, K701, K702, K712, and K7XX from Massdrop. All the headphones in AKG's “x7xx series” are very similar, but can differ slightly in comfort and sound. This Head-Fi post is a great primer on the [...]

Today's Best Deal One top-notch review says, "While listening to music with some other models, I can have the feeling that the singer is singing inside my head. With the AKG-Q701, it feels like the singer is in the room with me. There is a feeling of lack of agressivity ... [...]

AKG Quincy Jones Signature Line Q701 The Q701s deliver crisp, natural sound that brings out all of the detail in lossless audio files, CDs, and high-bitrate digital files. If you're looking for heavy bass, you'll probably want to look elsewhere, though. It's also worth noting that the open ... [...]

Switching from Astro A50's to AKG K7XX Massdrop Edition? not too familiar with the k7xx model.. generally i mention the k701/k702/q701, beyer cans, senn cans, at cans and a few others on here. it seems like the 7xx is a bit more bassy than is usual for akg cans but this is a "punchy" bass not a "boomy" and deep ...

AKG K550

Headphones have become one of the greatest tech successes in recent years. Many more people are willing to splash out for proper headphones like the AKG K550, rather than cheapo pairs.

It’s a shame because the K550 are fantastic headphones that give you the sound characteristics of an at-home pair with the portability benefits of a closed.
