I tend to lurk and read up on head-fi opposed to posting here (largely because I am more of a computer guy and can't offer as much knowledge on this subject), but today I need some advice if someone can spare it. I have been interested in buying open back headphones for a while and noticed Amazon has the AKG Q701 for $230. Frankly, that is about as much as I want to spend. That combined with some nice things I have read here about them has put me very close to buying them.
So basically, I am on the edge of the proverbial cliff. If anyone feels compelled to talk me off the ledge (or push me over), I am asking you to do exactly that.
Also, if it helps, I currently play my music from my computer through an NFB-12 paired with ATH-M50s and Airmotiv 5s. I assume the NFB-12 should be fine with the Q701, but please let me know if I have problems here as well.
And as always, THANK YOU!!!
