this is my first post so I'll hope this is the right section - and that this is a good place to ask this! :)
So... I'm a hardcore music listener (meaning I listen to music for at least 8 hours per day) but when it comes to the technical side I'm very ignorant.
I used to have the Bose around ear model
last month they stopped working after 2 years of service so it was time to upgrade
I had a higher budget this time so the guy in the shop told me he had a great deal.
Long story short, I walked out of the store with a pair of AKG Q701.
I own no amps, nothing fancy, I just plug them into my macbook pro... and honestly?
I was so disappointed!
I don't know if technically these headphones are so much better than my previous pair, but they sound empty to me, the bose gave me a richer, stronger sound, and sometimes with these AKG I can hear little distortions that I never heard while using the bose (I only have FLAC music in case you were wondering)
Now... I am sure this problem comes from mistakes I am doing because I refuse to think a pair of heaphones worth 400 pounds can be inferior to a pair worth 4 times less.
So any advice, links of stuff to read, missing pieces of equipment I need, everything is welcome really.
I wanna be able to get the best out of these headphones and see if they are for me...
Many thanks for reading!
