From Our Research Team:
The Signature Headphones of a Music Legend!From his work with such musical greats as Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, and Michael Jackson, to the scores including The Italian Job and The Color Purple, and the number one hit single of all time, "We are the World," few musicians can claim a legacy half as impressive as that of Quincy Jones. His discerning ears and golden touch have earned him 79 GRAMMY nominations and 27 GRAMMY awards - more than any other living musician. And despite his success, Jones is a man whose endorsement is seldom seen on music equipment. That's why it is a mark of the greatest kind of esteem that his name appears on AKG's Quincy Jones Signature Line headphones.
According to Quincy Jones, AKG's Quincy Jones Signature Line headphones represent "the best quality sound" that he has ever heard from headphones. Furthermore, Jones credits AKG's Q701 semi-open-back headphones with the ability to "bring out the true sound" of such hit records as Billie Jean, Thriller, and Give Me the Night. Maybe it's the Q701's revolutionary flat-wire voice coil or its patented Varimotion ultra-precision 2-layer diaphragm, but one thing's certain: these headphones sound absolutely fantastic! And that's not all. Premium features such as 3D-Form ear pads that conform to the shape of your ears, and a cushioned self-adjusting headband made of genuine-leather give Q710's a uniquely comfortable fit. If you want to discover sound, feel, and performance like nothing you've experienced before, then check out a pair of AKG Q710 Quincy Jones signature headphones for yourself!

Excellent Reference Headphone
by Giorgio from Los AngelesThe Q701 are amazing headphones. Bass is deep and full without being too much. The treble is smooth and very detailed. Vocals just soar and sing. The soundstage is wide and deep. The sound is laid out... read more [+] in front of you with each instrument clearly defined. I have played every kinds of music from classical music to rock, blues acoustic and jazz all sound fantastic. You definitely need a good quality source Mp3 generally won't cut it with these cans. use FLAC or Apple Lossless. Overall I would describe these headphones as smooth and natural sounding. These phones require a good headphone amp to bring out their best qualities, if amped well they punch far beyond their price point for excellent sound quality. Highly recommended. close [-]

Great Cans, not broken in yet though..
by ray J from Philadelphia, PASo far so good. I love the build quality of these phones.

Already I have had people in the studio ask which ones are they, they are bad-ass, love em etc... so they are catching people's eyes as well.

Too thin in the bass but accurate everywhere else
by Jackie Baker from Tifton, GAI first bought these after hearing raves about how accurate they were. I have to say, they aren't harsh in the upper registers like their predecessors. They really didn't have to go through the exte... read more [+]nsive burn-in period either. The biggest disappointment I have with these headphones is their inefficiency in the low end. They are so weak starting at about 200 hz and below that you're certainly not gonna be able to trust them with a mix down. I usually like to throw on some headphones and listen to the low-end. These guys won't help you there. close [-]
