Wait, what? Why are some of you guys talking about new earpads? Pretty sure they're the same. Hmmm... you're probably confused by the "newly designed genuine leather headband and soft velour ear pads" statement in the literature. I think "newly designed" is only referring to the leather headbands.

I didn't find the old headband to be uncomfortable, never really bothered me, only made my scalp a bit sensitive once or twice, after several hours. I can imagine it might be a nuisance for bald guys though.
Makes sense: K701 means hardwired, which sucks for limited edition, Q701 has the cable on the wrong side to make it iPhone friendly. If it has a detachable cable that's on the proper side, it has to be a K702!
What? The Q701's detachable cable is on the left side just like the 702s.
They're probably using the k702 because it has a detachable cable for user convenience, and since it's not for the Quincy Jones line they don't want the Q button thing. Or maybe they just don't want to pay ol' quincy
