What!?

By Pete-RFSv-

from elizabeth nj

Comments about AKG K 701 Ultra Reference Class Stereo Headphone:

this is the second set of profesional headphones i had the chance to own, they are super confortable, exelent stereo image and the funny thing about them is that they sound more detailed than my burned rokit 8 , at the begining when they just arrived they sounded a little sterile, but after a burn in in pink noise for 70 hours they totaly losted the sterile thing , and now everithing sound live, i mean studio live, depeding on the aplication, the price is a little high, but you will understand why after the required burn in, like i said, they are expensive for headphones , but my home studio realy thanks me for this, there must be better cans out there thats why the 4.5 ratings, but they are not in this price range, i know it.burn them up, and let it come.

Ultimate neutral

By eightbit-fkALF

from Texas

Comments about AKG K 701 Ultra Reference Class Stereo Headphone:

These are simply amazing. Compared to other high end headphones (hd650s, dt770/880..etc) they have an overall neutral sound- probably the most neutral you'll get with dynamic drivers. The soundstage is on it's own level though, and I've heard absolutely nothing that compares (including electro-static). Acoustic and vocals are where these phones shine. They're extremely comfy, but the headband can get to you around the 8 hour mark. Also, it took about 300 hrs to burn mine in.

Buyer's Beware

By N/A-F6yMd

from N/A

Comments about AKG K 701 Ultra Reference Class Stereo Headphone:

If you buying these for your ipod, zune, or other mp3 player, go elsewhere unless you plan to spend $100 more on a small headphone amp. These headphones for people who take listening to music very seriously and care about quailty. By far the most comportable pair of headphones I have owned and best sounding without a doubt.
