AKG Q701 in GREEN. question for you owners out there.

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
Does the green look good in person? Are the cups metal? Are both cables it comes with in green? Can you post a few good pictures? Thank you!

I do not own them, but I tried them at a store. The salesman said that both cables are in lime green. I said they're ugly, but he argued it's the best looking headphone yet (especially all green).

I think the cups are made of plastic, but I'm not 100% sure. Metal would weigh too much.

I'm kinda digging the green. It's ugly, but different at the same time.

I bought the white version, and they are stunning. If you don't like the lime green cable, it's detachable and can easily be replaced in the aftermarket.

Can someone please put up some good pictures of green version? I am itching to get one, but still a little on the fence with the green. Perhaps a white one? Real pictures would be nice.

Try Google, select images, and type in AKG Q701 images. There are hundreds of photos.

I did Google it. It's all marketing/stock pictures.

Your google-fu is weak, more images if you follow the link below the 2 photos I posted.

My black ones came with two green cables.  One "short", one "longer".  I feel cheated !!

They sound better if you wear them backwards like Quincy.

When and saw the White one in person today. The earpads seems to be softer than the K702 and there is a soft mesh over the drivers. I remember the K702 didn't have that nice soft mesh screen. Am I wrong?

No problem buddy!  It's a quite serious matter though because if the Q701 makes Quincy's mixes, as he said, sound like he always wanted them to sound, then the stereo image must be reversed, so all these years we've been listening to his recordings with L/R backwards! 

 

I wonder if that's a common problem for recording engineers- mixing up L and R.  Maybe he's color blind or something and put the RCA jacks on the wrong way.
