And anybody who gives a review must own the Q701 and must not be K701/K702

owners who just speculate on something they clearly do not have. 

Thanks,

Nobody here really has any interest in paying an additional $100+ for a different color...

 

But here's one comparison:

His verdict appears to be mixed/little to no difference after burn in.

 

I prefer the dark color, but you can get the 701. k701smile.gif

Well, I have nothing against the K702  - except that it too costs way more in Europe.  In the US it's similarly priced, of course...

 

Personally I don't like the navy blue color of the K702.  I'm not the biggest fan of white, either.

You can try FS forum, around $200 or ebay $240.

For what?  That doesn't make sense.  I definitely don't want navy blue!  I prefer white, although I don't think I want to get the K701 anyway.

 

And I have to pay 25% tax on anything I get from outside the EU - even used.  In Sweden it's cheaper to buy the K701 from Germany than it is to get it from anywhere else.

Sorry, But if someone wants to, let them respond to my question.

And to everyone else, maybe an owner of both, please just try to

respond to my question.

 

I could at least be a little more grateful,

again sincerely A1811,

Thanks

If you'd so kindly notice, I linked to a review directly comparing them...

Does anyone try to pair Q701 with Matrix M-stage? I'm interested to know if it has good synergy with M-stage.

post #25 of 224

type in the two model numbers in the search function for each forum and you'll get years of opinions on the two.

I know there are tons of oppinions on K701 and M-stage but I'm just curious about if anything different with Q701.

The 70x are the same headphone, just different color and detachable cable. The Q line is a cheesy way of squeezing as much as they can out of the old technology while everybody else is putting out higher performance headphones.

I'm also interested in how any of the 70x line matches up with the M-stage.

post #29 of 224

A search will show that the M-Stage and K70X's match up very well.

It's not that old, and who said new is better?  I do agree that the Q line is just a reason to get more money out of people with limited effort.  AKG needs to spending the resources to produce something totally new rather then using the resources to rebrand headphones (in icky colors).  [Something totally new, but something that is better than their usual new stuff].
