Okay, one last question that no one will have an answer to and I probably can't even put into words.
I have something called hyperacusis that makes some frequency ranges louder then they should be to my ear, making certain sounds (especially listening to people talk in real life) really painful.
This isn't normally a problem with headphones because who knows. Maybe that region on headphones is weaker then a normal humans voice. How strong is the section where the human voice lies, specifically the closer to root section between say 500 and 1000 hz? Will I have to EQ this down?
Hmm, so it handles EDM well, then. How does it handle something more orchestral like this?
The Q701 can sometimes have some foward upper mids, which is a little higher than the frequency range you listed. I think 500-1000hz is more lower and regular mids. I can't say how the Q701 will do in that range, but it's not missing mids (so if you're specifically looking for a mid-recessed headphone, this isn't it).
The Q701 is very good with classical/orchestral and acoustic music in general. The soundstage has a cool effect of separating all the different parts and sounds.
