Headphone cable plugs vary quite greatly. Audeze sennheiser hifiman etc all use different cable plugs. Even within a company there can be differences like the sennheiser hd 800 vs the hd 650 or 600. Or the akg k701 vs the incoming 812s.

A lot of cable companies can change the plugs for u for a fee if necessary though. If all else fails there is always the for sales forum here smily_headphones1.gif

Q701 uses standard mini-XLR, so you can use the same cable for most AKG headphones. Most other headphones use standard TRS (2.5 or 3.5mm), but many headphones like Sennheiser have proprietary connectors.
