I started messing around with the equalizer today because imo the K701's just sounded rolled off/flat at the high end. I went off the headroom frequency response chart and did the best I could.

Anyways after listening to a few songs(rock/metal/rap no jazz or classical) with this equalizer on I can not go back to listening without it lol. It seems to have brought the headphones to life for me. Here is a pic and the equalizer preset. Please try it and see if it makes things sound better to you also.

Interesting.... I wonder how many have found the K70x lacking in the highs? While I might find my K702 a bit lacking in the area above 12 kHz, IMO there's a bit too much in the 2.5 kHz and 7 kHz areas and generally no shortage to treble.

hello owners AKG K701! (and 702)
 
now we can enjoy trusted frequrency response by personalaudio et ru:

so i use it for making equalizer for foobar. its not standart equlizer, but "Graphic equalizer", wich connect to foobar by adding  foo_dsp_xgeq.dll to Component folder.
 
So here you can download equalizer-files for "Graphic equalizer" in foobar and then just Import it by clicking "Import..." in Graphic equalizer.

AKG K701: Just bass (original)

IMHO - sound is loose by using all-frequrency preset, you can hear itself. So i make just bass-preset, because this headphones needs bass. Use it if your DAC dont add some bass-frequrency.

AKG K701: AKG just bass 2 (less)

Use it preset, if you think "Just bass (original)" give more bass that need, or your DAC adding color in bass-frequrency. For example i use it preset for jazz and rock on my Fiio X5 Gain=H, and use "Just bass (original)" when listening electronic music.
 
Now this headphones sound amazing! :D
 
p.s. sorry for my russian english :)
