AKG Quincy Jones Q701 | Black/Green
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Apr 19, 2011

The AKG Quincy Jones Q701 is a high-end set of over-ear headphones, a flagship offering. Quincy Jones touts these headphones as bringing out the true sound of the classic Michael Jackson records. The accurate sound reproduction of these headphones stems from the high-performance neodymium magnets, which create a large magnet field, increasing sensitivity in the flat-wire voice coil. This makes for a better bass response and higher overall sound quality. Contributing to the high-quality sound is the two-layer diaphragm of these headphones, which also helps to prevent unwanted noise. As far as the fit of these headphones goes, the 3D-Form headpads conform to your head shape. The cushioned leather headband contributes to the comfort factor. Besides their 99.99% oxygen-free cable, these headphones resemble the lower cost offering, the mini on-ear Q460s, in no way. Features Color options Flat-wire voice coil Two-layer diaphragm Neodymium magnets Open-back design 99.99% oxygen-free cable 6.3mm stereo ... PROS: (1) stylish, minimalist, classic AKG aesthetic (2) available in white, black and lime green (3) durable build quality (4) comfortable circum-aural design with self-adjusting headband - can be worn hours without discomfort (5) detachable cables - easily replaced if damaged or a longer length is desired, 3m and a 6m cables are included ... CONS: (1) large, open design - designed for inside listening in quiet environments, not for use on the go or with others around (2) proprietary cable design - must be purchased from AKG or custom made (3) requires a good amplifier to sound their best (difficult to drive) - sound merely mediocre out of a personal media player
