As a few of you would know i already have a thread about the Q701 but i thought i'd start another one for a different topic and some different responses.
My previous (still own them) main headphones were the Audio Technica ATH-M50... i love them. The comfort, closed, the sound... I bought the AKG's because they were so cheap on amazon and heard they blew the ATH-M50 out of the water. Before anyone else asks my source is an AV receiver. I've had them for a couple of days now and am not really satisfied. I find the sound to be way too cold and analytical, lack of bass impact is quite noticeable and the treble is quite harsh, i listened to them and the M50s side by side and the AKG's do sound noticeably better but not worth the price better, i am not too satisfied with the comfort, the headband bumps are annoying and if i push them up with my thumb the pads sit and clamp on my jawline. And i do not like how the leak so much, i knew they were open but i can hear them outside my closed door which is an issue. I could soundproof my door but... yeah.
What should i do?
I could get used to them but i don't want to listen to them because of the comfort, leakage, harshness, i just don't know where to start.
I don't want to return or sell them because i know i will regret it later, i just wish i hadn't bought them.
