I've posted specs, measurements, and professional reviews contradicting your claims. You've done little to defend your claims other than point out that there are headphones I dislike... congrats.
This doesn't mean anything. Is this supposed to be proof of anything? No. Give me actual proof and then we can talk. What I'm hearing with my own ears is all that matters. I can't listen to the K702 and I'm perfectly happy with the Q701. That's all the proof I need. I've owned the K702 at least 3 times and they all sounded the same. All 3 of them had issues and I even tried many different sources and amps. Even burned them in for 100+ hours.
Why would I need to defend my claims? Do I even care? I have no interest in trying to prove what my ears are hearing. All I can do is tell people what they sound like to my ears. I think they're smart enough to do their own research before buying a headphone. If they feel they sound the same, then who cares? I don't.
Seriously I don't know if you're trolling or what. You keep trying to convince us that they're both the same, yet you haven't even heard them. That's funny. Not even the K702! This is no different than those bashing Bose, Skullcandy or Monster without even bothering to listen to them first.
I don't personally attack people here. I only pointed out your reviews because most of your comments in them are troll-like. I mean seriously, maybe you should go back and read some of your comments to people in them. I just have a hard time taking any of your comments seriously based on your reviews and comments. That's the only reason I pointed them out.
I really wish people would quit being stupid and stop commenting on headphones they haven't heard. Why do you so blindly trust all these so called measurements and "professional reviews"? As if that was any sort of proof...None of measurements are even the same. Many of the improvements of the Q701 aren't even measurable. If we all went by measurements, you'd think the DT-880 and HD-600 would sound exactly the same, but are complete opposites. How do you measure how warm sounding a headphone is? How about how large and accurate a headphone's soundstage is? Sure, you can show the differences in treble, but this really doesn't always mean much. There's a ton of treble happy headphones that should bother my ears, but don't. Yet some with less treble actually do. Graphs don't mean much at all really.
It really is amusing how some are so willing to trust measurements and single "professional" reviews as to what a headphone will sound like. It makes no sense! None of us have the same hearing. Why do you think some people say the M50 doesn't have enough bass or the HD-650 is too bright? Nobody on here can ever agree on what a headphone sounds like. I guess you haven't figured this out yet..I learned to stop trusting reviews and graphs a long time ago...I use my own ears and and then sell them if I don't like it's signature. I usually try to get an idea of what a headphones sound signature MIGHT be like based on listening impressions of lots of different people. Even then there is no guarantee I will like it. Q701 is the rare headphone where I ignored everyone's guesses about what it sounded like (like yours) and just tried it out for myself. I'm really glad I did.
Not going to reply any more on this..people can listen to them and decide for themselves if there is any difference. The Q701 is the same price as the K702 now, so what's the big deal? If anyone has them and don't think there is, then feel free to post here. Doesn't matter much to me, but would definitely help others decide. Loving my q701 and that's really all I care about.
