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 Q 701 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 Q 701'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 Q 710'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 Q 710 Quincy Jones signature headphones for yourself!

These seriously brought tears to my eyes
by Ryan Castelaz from New Berlin, WI USAYes, these are expensive, but you truly get what you pay for.

Being an audiophile, and working in the recording industry, my ears are extremely picky, and I am hard to please when it co... read more [+]mes to speakers and headphones. These things, they BLOW MY MIND. They do not effect the music at all, they let you hear beyond notes to THE EMOTION of the what you are listening to. Listening to Ingrid Michaelson's "Turn to Stone" brought tears to my eyes, hearing every intake of breath, the synth'ed strings in the background of the breakdown, it is the most amazing things. The same feeling after listening to Mumford and Son's "Little Lion Man", Nelly's "Just a Dream", Girlyman's "The Shape I Found You In", Michael Buble's "Fever", everything you listen to through these cans just sings. You honestly can not spend $400 better than this.
And did I mention the lime one's look even cooler in person?! These babies turn heads, AND bring tears. Thanks for the legacy Quincy. close [-]
by Tony Sparrow from Bowie,MD.These headphones are amazing. Once my sales engineer(Robby ext1368) ask me to trust him on this. I purchased them, and this has been one of my best purchases in a while.

I give 5 star for sound,comfort, lightweight, looks, design which is the main thing.
My disappointment is that with this price tag, they should of provide a carrying case but I guess these supposedly stayed in the studio LOL! close [-]
AKG Q701 Headphones
by Daryl Crowley from Ludington, MII gave them 4.5 stars, because I've only had them for a few days. So far they are incredible. They require a little more omph than my other phones, I have to add about 25% more volume to equal the v... read more [+]olume of my other phones, but that is no problem and I would guess a function fo their design.

Music Background: Ex- touring road warrior for many years, now just writing and recording in my home studio.
I mixed a new tune I was working on and the results so far are very encouraging.
They are BIG headphones but very light and I find them comfortable and very breathable, but they look a little funny just because of their size. But the overall design is very cool and I like the plug-in cord as I feel it will eliminate the evenual broken wire where the cord meets the phones. All phones should be designed like this with a removeable chord. These do not color the sound at all but give a very true response of recordings, which is of course what you want in the studio. close [-]
Perfect for your studio
by john crispino from pittsburgh, pa.these headphones are a must have for anyone doing critical studio work. they are comfortable to wear, and reproduce whatever it is you are working on, without adding color. trust me, i have tried many... read more [+] other headsets, and these are the ones i use all the time. 2 things that prevent me from giving them a 5..... first is, i wish the connecting cable was coiled. i constantly find it in the way, hooking itself onto things. secondly, for the price, these headphones should have a carrying case. close [-]
