Hello. I recently bought a pair of akg k240 mkII brand new for 105.00 dollars. I like them and feel they have a nice amount of bass for my taste, but also feel they could be better. I listen to bands like Opeth, Alice In Chains, Porcupine Tree. I do listen to bands like radio head, Pearl Jam, red hot chilli peppers and coldplay. So, simply said, I listen to rock music. lol. I plan on getting an Objective 2 amp and have my mind made up on that end of things. My question is should I get the q701 or keep the MkII's. My price range is about 250.00 dollars. Will I appreciate the q701's? I would like to mention I play guitar and would be playing through these headphones. I am very picky about guitar tone and have a fairly good "ear" so if the q701 are much better I am sure I will notice. Thank you for any input.
I would like to add that 85% of my music library is lossless and I do not wish for a headphone that is too analytical. A little is ok.
