Yeah, price was the main reason for me to get the q701. I was also afraid that the k712 would actually be to bassy (for what I wanted from this purchase). I've got enough other cans with plenty of bass.

I'm sure you've seen mention of the bass port mod too.  When you get your Q's, listen to them for awhile and they may be exactly what you are looking for.  If you feel you want a bit more bass impact, then the bass port mod will take care of that for you.

 

Nice thing with these is that you can decide for yourself if you want more or not :beerchug:

Yes I sure red about it and I'm always in for some modding so I'm sure I'll try it out eventually. The thing is that I REALLY enjoy them stock at the moment so I'll keep using them this way for a bit longer before I do anything to them.

Surprisingly they sound just as fabulous from the uDac2 as from the Magni (even the bass). That's really god news for me since I plan using them at work and I'd really like to keep my Magni at home. I've got two of the uDac's so I'm pretty sure I'll bring one of them to my office along with the q701's.

Only bad thing is I like them so much that I'll probably need to find a pair for home use as well wink.gif

That's what I did. ;)

 

I lived with both the modded and unmodded version for a while, and ended up modifying both! :D

Ok, couldn't resist the temptation with all this modding dirty talk wink.gif

Removed the tape, put them back together and listened to them for about 30 minutes. For me the magic got lost. Modded the reminded me of the fa-011 but with better clarity. Since I've already own the Fischer's this is not what I was looking for so I turned them back to stock and the macig is back and I've got peace in my mind smily_headphones1.gif

I must say that in their stock configuration they really hit the sweet spot for me. Now I'm not a one can man (I'm more of a hoarder) so these are just perfect for my intended use.

To each his own! At least you tried. What matters is to enjoy it, one way or the other. :L3000:

I'm with you 100%

In this hobby it's all about personal preference.

Okay so now I've gotten my Q701s. My question is, Aune T1 or Schiit Vali?

Do you have a DAC already?  Remeber, the Aune T1 is a Tube DAC with SS Amp...Vali is just an amp

Yeah I understand that. I only have whatever is on my sound card in my computer, but require an AMP.

Well I had an Aune T1(v1) and sold it after I got a modi/vali stack. The Schiit stack is a step up imho, but its more expensive

The K712/Annies cost ~$350.  The Q701 costs $150-200.  They're not even close to the same price range.  Everything I've read says the K712 and Annie sound better but not $200 better.  Probably not $100.  There's also the fact that it's widely believed that the Annies and the Q701 are the exact same headphone except for the pads and the headband; $60 for new pads and you've save yourself beaucoup bucks.
