One thing I notice about the q701's is that I can tell UP and Down much better than I could with AD700's.
This is all stereo by the way, no mixamp involved. It's not necessary with these at all.
If you even remotely like the AD700's this is the only logical upgrade from there. Better sound and what I consider to be a better soundstage than the vaunted ad700's.
Just be ready because they need an amp. I kept the volume at where my AD700's were at. Plugged these in and didn't hear anything. Flipped the gain switch to high and turned them up and said ok they are working.
