You can usually get the black pairs for ~$175 Like New or similar...

Against forum rules to reference that site.  You might want to edit your post.

That one that has the audacity to give people good discounts. I won't say the name, but it's not much of a secret.

I mean, I can't say I disagree wholly with the reasoning behind it.

When you read some of the comments on those sites, it's very obvious that many people would abuse the vendors if they could without a second thought.  There were numerous calls for lowered pricing with the Q701's even though it was already an unprecedented low price.

I agree with the Q701 comment. Still surprised AKG agreed to one, considering they would have had to subsidize costs. That said, I disagree with the reasoning on that page, but respect it considering that I still use this forum. I have no interest in rocking the boat.

 

Anyway, you could probably just ask around Reddit or something and someone is bound to give you a response. The website even has a subreddit.

For those using your Fiio X3 with the q701's, are you trying them with firmware 3.0? Some people don't like the new UI, but it's no doubt an improvement in the sound signature department.

I'm using mine with X3 and don't like the new UI. User Mr.Trev has made a listbased theme for the new UI which I find to be much nicer to use. Ask in the X3 thread and you'll find it.

I'm on my phone now otherwise I'd link it myself.

I have already decided on the q701s and am now looking for an amp for them. Budget is 75, absolute max of 100, no more
Anything is appreciated, never had an amp before.
