My name is Romeo and I'm just looking for some advice today.
So basically I'm looking for a pair of gaming cans, and recently my friend let me try his AKG K701 headphones. I thought they were excellent, but also a little harsh, if that makes sense. Now I know that they sound a little more natural as opposed to the widely acclaimed AD700 and AD700X phones, which at least from all the reviews I've read are a little more artificial in sound. The AD700x is also significantly cheaper than any of the headphones I will be asking about today as well, however I cannot comment on the their sound, as I don't know anybody that has a pair for me to trial.
The headphones I wish to ask about today are all AKG cans. The K601, K701 and the Q701, all of which I have found for much cheaper than the retail prices. I have read through the MLE gaming thread, at least when it came to the AKG phones and I know he's never reviewed the K601, but I did read some other threads on this forum. Now most people say they do sound a little warmer than the K701. I have absolutely no idea what that means, so I needed to ask a few of you guys for some advice.
I will be using these cans with consoles and pairing them with the Mixamp. I will be mixing chat with the mixamp as well.
