I am just noticing there are about 4 voices on the track of Get Lucky by Daft Punk
Also I can hear on this other song the two drumsticks hitting the bass drum. It's crazy. 
I totally get what you are saying... People saying "Q701 are bass-light" have never matched my experience at all. I don't want MORE bass than this... already sounds amazing with action movies.

My measures were less extreme, but work well for me!



I put the other seatbelt wrap on my K712's:

hmm, the latest fashion trend in Q701, odd wraps, i might buy myself one too, haha

Take a selfie, lol! But seriously, very nice comfort improvement. The K712 headband doesn't have bumps, and with the wrap it is STILL more comfortable.

That's a pretty clever idea, never even thought about using a seatbelt wrap, looks kind of warm? I ended up replacing mine with a section of an old leather belt.

Also - the Samsung Galaxy S3 model varies in performance. Mine is very poor indeed - a thin, tinny sound compared even to some other phones. it's supposed to have a Wolfson DAC but it certainly doesn't sound like it.

Compared to the HD600 and HE-400 where does the Q-701 fit in? I'm contemplating getting a pair seeing as they're around $200 and I was wanting to know if its worth a pair considering the 2 headphones I have. If they sound to much like one or the other I'd rather pass so some opinions would be a big help.

Looking good mate! Dual entry Q701 looks awesome.

Anyone can tell me how these headphones go with rock music?

Thanks, sounds better than it looks, they're actually pretty rough on the outside because I got careless with the soldering iron and accidentally melted some of that plastic joint with the shaft on the left side. :wink_face:

Agreed as well.

I recommend it if you never plan to sell those.


I'm not cutting them but I want to find something to wrap over them like the cushions on the classic Beyerdynamic headbands.

My $126 "very good" condition Q701 from Amazon warehouse arrived!  It seems like it's brand new, as the AKG sticker sealing the box is unpeeled.  It's also the made in Austria model.
