The Q701's generally as universal as the LCD2.2's though. I would say it has to do with the bass. For really good masterings like Fleetwood Mac. You can accurately compare stuff because its just a well mastered schiit so neutral cans can go head to head on equal ground. With sutff like perfume. You already know that any $50 set of cans will win against say the AD700 or something.

I l....ummm. Would like to as well bigsmile_face.gif

Bring Fleetwood Mac with you. The reason is above. 

REgular schiit is biased. You need some manly masterings to allow actual flagships to meet up on near equal ground.
Poland first gives out badass presents to the president of Murica like the Witcher games and now this.

Good job
Haha, yup smily_headphones1.gif

Depends on what it is really

 

I have a few of them, and some stuff isn't that good

 

HD Tracks != best produced/mastered albums etc etc.

 

It is just a different press with "HD" addition to it with it now being 192/24

Mhmm true. Michael Jackson's "Bad" album doesn't sound that much better, but Madonna's "True Blue" album is friggin' amazing compared to similar CD offerings.

Just wondering, how many of you can cry from an anime OST. I need a combination of OST/VA to get me rolling.

Just the good stuff :)

 

I complain about the Q701's a lot and many do.

 

But we need to think back about neturality and what these companies had in mind for neutrality. And frankly these headphones are neutral. It's more 'biased' recordings that differ that start promoting some over the others by the small changes in ideological neutrality that AKG may have came up with in clear vocals and open as opposed to Audzeze.

 

So thus to compare say an LCD2 to an Q701. It is needed that we at least need to include tests with albums that are well mastered and produce as little range bias as possible (where an accentuation or reduction in one range doesn't cause pure crap to be played) 

 

But of course, it is also important to not disinclude normal albums and songs. In a perfect world, we can, we can talk schiit about them, how they should be like the others. But in this world we can't.

 

So for a truly overal opinion. Testing with more mainstream stuff that is biased, must also be done and that is where the AKG's should go and burn in hell.

 

In terms of flagship v flagship. The AKG Q701's are ...pretty dam good for $300 when the LCD's are $1000. Very different though. Q701's are more active and LCD's are more passive.

 

This is just my own personal thoughts on what I see today. Complaints of Q701's and the state of how music and its mastering affects perception of a headphone

Yeah, no crying here either but vivid memories, and some groovin' (denki groove/Niji)...or (Tip Taps Tip/Halcali)
