Though I pined for the Q701s, I initially got the K712s. They have 3 dB more bass, but they still were not the headphones I went to for bass music. They were masterful, but not exciting.
So I traded it away, STILL pined for the Q701s, and they just arrived yesterday.
FABULOUS! Great soundstage, transparent, and yes, COMFORTABLE. They have the eight bumps under the headband, but even with my bald head, I notice no discomfort.
I also got a Sony PHA-1 DAC/amp, which sounds truly fantastic with them and with other headphones. But if you are content with medium volume, the Q701s are driven just fine by an iPod 5G.
Oh, and they ARE Lime Green!
