Pros: Amazing customer service, inoffensive sound, stupid bass for an IEM
Cons: A little boring for my taste
The price paid is because I had to do rushed-rush processing. 1964 delivered, with the best customer service imaginable.
The Q has great lows, very good mids, but lack a little in the highs. I like heavily colored headphones and I knew the Q was a reference monitor going in...but that didn't keep me from being a bit disappointed by the lack of excitement to their sound.
I would say that for 90% of the people on head-fi, these would be a very good fit. Basically, unless you're an overly sensitive little girl and think the K601/701 has too much bass or you're like me and want your headphones to lend their own character to your music, you will be hugely satisfied with these monitors.
