    Headphone X-ray: The High-Budget Movie. This classic, created by Tim Burton, is about a Q701's skeleton, played by Johnny Depp, who couldn't stop spinning.

    High-tech image of a headache in the making. It's a skull wearing the Q701! This is one of two images, this one set to optimally image the Q701. I set the kilo-voltage peak down to 50 to ensure they don't burn out, but the skull ended up being under-penetrated, of course. No clear sinuses here, folk

    Oblique shot of my Q701. 46kVp at 20mAs. Image brightness is uneven for some reason. My X-ray tube is getting old!

    AP shot of my Q701. 46kVp at 20mAs. Blackening is better here than in my radiographs of the M50. I just wonder why!

    AKG K702 (701 also?) headband elastic....

    I've just today received a pair of used K702's.   Very happy with them, I must say (bass-light, I am not finding them, surprisingly, compared to the reviews on here: maybe a bit high-happy, but not bass-shy).   However, they are used. They were cheap (ish), and appear to be in very, very...

    AKG Q701 (White) with memory foam pads

    Hello fellow head-fiers!  I have for sale a white AKG Q701 in excellent condition.  I picked it up a while back from another head-fier with the intention of using it on an office rig that never came to fruition, so they remain in excellent condition with very few hours of use.    I do not have...

    The AKG Q701 triple 3 mod

    After comparing several headphones, I realized that the AKG Q701 had lots of potential - especially for the price point at under $240 at time of this post. However, consistent with observations with many head-fiers, the high frequency response of the AKG can interfere with the overall listening...

    Comfortable Headphones For Smartphones Around $200 +/-

    Any suggestions for some comfortable headphones with low clamping force? The headphones will be used with a smartphone. Supra-aural or circum-aural designs are not the priority. Comfort and low clamping force is top priority. Sound quality is secondary.   I have used the DT880 for some...

    I took the first step. Please help me finish.

    This should be called "Newbie's first impressions" but I need help more than need someone to read my impressions.   After so much research, I finally found at least two places to freely listen to display headphones (I'm in South Korea).  I didn't have my notes with me but I knew the models...
