Don't think so. Just different color cables.

If I do buy these, I would also need a mic. Although the ant lion modmic is of superb quality, I don't like the fact that the base of the mod mic will be going on these $250+ headphones. Any recommendations for mics?
I would try it first without an amp if you don't already have one. Some people get enough volume without one, but others want more and add an amp later.
The modmic IS the best recommendation IMO. It's what I use with my Q701. I wouldn't worry about it damaging the headphones, it's just a little sticky adhesive. Worst case scenario is you have to wipe the headphones with a little rubbing alcohol if you remove it.
