    These are the only headphones I’ve heard that bring out the true sound we were striving for on records like "Billie Jean,""Thriller" and "Give Me the Night". It’s the best-quality sound I’ve heard, ever.
  • Headphones that are built to last
    Built from premium materials like genuine leather, unbreakable metal arches and hard gold-plated jack cables and contacts.
  • QJ signature sound
    The AKG Q 701 headphones feature revolutionary flat-wire voice coils that create a spacious, dramatic soundstage with precise 360-degree imaging and outstanding transient response. Patented two-layer diaphragms similar to their professional studio counterparts offer sparkling high-frequency sound and accurate bass response. Additionally, a high-performance neodymium magnet system makes the headphones heat-resistant for minimal distortion at any listening level. The Q701s deliver pinpoint imaging with unmatched realism.
  • Comfortable, specially shaped 3-D-form ear pads
    The Q701s have been designed in collaboration with the award-winning Austrian design firm Kiska to embody AKG's signature styling aesthetic without compromising functionality or comfort. Foams of different densities combine to create the Q701s' huge, ear-enveloping, velvet 3-D-form ear pads, ergonomically shaped for a precise, repeatable fit. This shape combines with their open-back design, allowing the drivers to be aimed at the ears to produce the ideal acoustical transmission.

Q701 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Q701 by AKG This is a great product. I am very happy I bought this. It has great sound quality even though it did not come with any software for sound configuration. I feels pretty sturdy but not solid. It's not completely made out of very hard materials however, I believe that this is because it's made to be comfortable at the same time as built well. Over all, this is a awesome product. It's wired and that's how I like headphones. I just wish It came with sound editing/configuration software for a pc/mac.
