x2 100%. I am listening to this right now, as I type. My K701's are not fully broken in, but hey this sounds great. (OK, I'm listening to junky pop, sorry).
I agree with this poster and disagree with those who say you can't use a portable amp for the 701's. iQube is THAT amp.
I use my Predator to drive 880/600 ohms!! You believe that? No. But at the NJ meet people heard it and were stunned.
YMMV, but try it!
I am happy to admit I am not the best judge of SQ, but I can hear clarity, separation, transient response, and soundstage fine (I will fall short in recognizing freq response in the highs).
