I agree that the Q701 needs proper amplification, and people will not be doing this headphone justice out of an ipod or their laptops headphone jack.

Gavin Harrison (jazz/rock) Neil Peart (rock) Billy Cobham (jazz/fusion Bill Bruford (prog rock) Joey Baron (jazz)   A video of Joey Baron. I think the studio version off of the album Mostly Coltrane is better, but this is still quite good:
