      Reference-class headphones built to satisfy the demanding ears Quincy Jones.

      The AKG Q701 reference-class premium headphones represent a momentous partnership with AKG and one of the most accomplished musicians of the 20th century: Quincy Jones— an American icon whose productions include the best-selling album (Thriller) and single ("We Are the World") of all time. Quincy has received an unprecedented 79 GRAMMY nominations and 27 GRAMMY awards, more than any other living artist. It stands to reason that the headphones he puts his name to must be nothing but the very best—and the Q701s are the most accurate and responsive headphones AKG has ever produced.

      Reference denotes a class of audio equipment that imparts little to no change to the input audio signal, producing a huge, airy, three-dimensional sound. The over-ear 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.

      Says Quincy, "This is the best quality sound I've heard in headphones, ever. And I'm proud my name is on them."

      Comments about AKG Quincy Jones Signature Series Q701 Premium Class Reference Headphones:

      I have three sets of these headphones, two 701's and one 702. They have excellent revealing sound. You can really make out instruments and drums that you otherwise would not hear. As another reviewer said, they need the proper amplification. I would add to that that the source material must be up to snuff. If you're listening to some compressed mp3, you're not hearing the incredible range of these speakers. I use the Native Instruments Audio 6 headphone jack,or the Creative Labs Soundblaster HD outbourd USB processor, and with some older recordings I cannot get enough gain. Mostly this is only with older songs, which were recorded at normal levels. I bought an expensive headphone amp, but don't use it much. With the new loudness race, most newer recordings have sufficient gain. For 90$ of the time, I get enough gain. However, I realized that the sound was so clear, I didn't need to turn them up too high. They don't distort at higher levels, you don't perceive it as loud as it is until you're done, so be careful with your hearing. They are not for use with ipods and devices. The earpads are so large that getting the right stereo image can require moving the headphone a bit. But it's well worth it, marvelous sound.

      Comments about AKG Quincy Jones Signature Series Q701 Premium Class Reference Headphones:

      These headphones sound great if you run them through the right equipment that can actually power them. Such as a computer or headphone amp. ie These were not made for a mobile device. Cord is very long and durable.

      What made me return these is that the headband was very uncomfortable in less than 15 min of wearing. Those bumps on the headband aren't cushion they're just hard bumps.

      Nice phones, Needs a Case

      By mister c

      from pittsburgh, pa

      Comments about AKG Quincy Jones Signature Series Q701 Premium Class Reference Headphones:

      Just like the other reviewer says, these headphones are nice. They sound great, and feel nice when worn. My only complaint is, that they should come with a case for transporting to other sessions. At the price they sell for, that should be included.
