The K701 Added to My Q701...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

After being impressed by the Q701, I have just ordered the K701.  What can I expect?  I have two good headphone amps, the Schiit Asgard and the headphone section in my Yamaha integrated.  I welcome your thoughts. 

 

Before I forget: is it hard to straighten the K701's cable?  I am always disappointed when they bunch up the cable--the kinks never seem to go away.

Heya,

 

I think you're going to find they sound very, very similar. You may find the Q701 to sound slightly warmer. But you realize they are brothers, not even cousins. That close. I much preferred the Q701 myself, but even then, it's not my cup of tea really either. Because I found the K701 to be too analytical, dry, and anemic for my taste in enjoying music.

 

Very best,

Yes, I had looked at their specs, and I knew they would be "brother" or "sister" headphones.  In comparison, I parted with my HD650 because I thought they were a bit dark.  They had excellent bass and dynamics, but the Q701 was better in terms of space and air.  The Q701 is also more comfortable.
