You can buy one, I'm sure.

Should I get a K701 or Q701?
I plan to do a cosplay of Mio for an anime expo next year.
K701 = the original, but the Q701 = more modern and slightly refined sonically

Ask yourself the question wether you're getting it for the sound or for the looks...

^ this

I do like the better sound quality of the Q701 sound, but at the same time I'll feel guilty if I don't get the original and cosplay accuracy. >.>
The K701 will better match the looks with the white silver V-MODA M-100 too.

You'd have to buy a spare AKG cable separately.

 

However, AKG doesnt offer anything shorter than 10 feet for some unbelievably stupid reason.

If you're a real audiophile you'll  go to plastic surgery if  the Monoprice 8320 is too big for you!

$4000 surgery for a $7.11 IEM. Sounds like Head-Fi.

That's when you get an HD800 and listen to your 2D music as if it were 3D because the HD800's imaging is that good. XD

You know you're an audiophile when someone says a pair of your headphones looks stupid and you feel deeply insulted...

 

Someone said that about my SE-500s >:c

When you said 'man hole'... well, never mind.  I think you meant 'man cave'?
