Being a female vocal music fan, my impressions of the Q701 was more forward vocals than the HD800. The Q701 does something special in the vocal frequency range in a good way. Another vocal specialist to me is the HD600.

I'm with you here, the Q701 shines better than any mid-fi cans I've ever heard on female vocal acoustical songs, though I dare not compare it to the HD800 since I've never heard one. I've never heard the HD600, but the HD650 sounds a bit too dark for me. It's not bad by all means, but probably not my cup of tea. Sounds exceptionally extraordinary with rock songs though, just not so much for acoustical in my opinion.

1. Sibilance is a headphone non dampened flaw, not just your source.
2.I haven't heard the Auditor so I don't know but some reviewers here have reported that the Auditor is an Phonitor without the meters and crossfeed, if true I disagree that this is a crap combination.
3. Comparing the AKG K701/702 to the HD800 is just a plain joke, the 701's are brighter than the HD800. Yes the HD800 does have a peaky treble but you cut this down by doing the Anaxmod and powering it with proper amplification. Throwing tube amplification at the HD800 doesn't fix the problem.
4. The HD800's are studio headphones I know of worldwide famous DJ's and some musicians/engineers that use it for monitoring. Tyll can't recommend the HD800's enough for monitoring purposes only.
5. The HD800 isn't some headphone you can plug into a pos amp or ipod and expect it to sound good.

AKG K701 brighter than HD800? what?

post #838 of 979

The overall tone of the K701 is defo brighter.  But that one peak on the HD800 is higher. The HD800 dips quite significantly in the lower treble where as the AKG is the opposite. 

 

K701's is one of my fave phones but I've always had to equalise the treble down. I've never had to with the HD800's. 

 

Sounds like this has been fixed with both the K712 and K812 though :)

^yeah. Bright is as term something that has to do with emphasised high mids.

I wouldnt say completely fixed, at least with K712 Pro... upper mids and treble is still the biggest weakness. It's the significantly more present bass that helps to mask it, almost successfully. The bass to mids presence is what makes the phone sound darker than HD800 while K701/K702/Q701 are brighter.
