New AKG line - Page 29

post #421 of 422

The Quincy line is comprised of 3 models. The in-ear and on-ear models will likely comprise 80%+ of sales, due to price and size and they'll obviously work great. Quincy Jones isn't exactly the hot name in the 15-22 yr old demographic, so I think they are simply trying to give some good product a little more exposure, not to lure the $20 Skullcandy buyer. I have a bigger problem with K701 being sold at the online Apple store than this - it is obviously not a great match with a macbook.

I think anyone interested in the Q701 $399ish big headphones will want genuinely good sound and will be likely to buy a headphone amp if reccommended to when they purchase this model.

Quincy Jones has already been using AKG for years, so I hope they sell a ton, some money goes to Quincy Jones' charity and people end up with nice sounding gear.

I, too, would also like to see a new $400-$700 model that is even better, but these things take time. I'd be shocked if they weren't working on it.

At least Quincy Jones should have asked AKG to improve the build quality of K701. The feel cheap compared to DT880 for example.
