Sparkling harmonics, incredibly low distortion and unequalled realism in the lower frequencies – it’s the huge, airy, three-dimensional sound available only in the finest high-end speaker systems and microphones. Now, the AKG has engineered it into the most accurate and responsive reference headphones this company has ever produced, the Q 701s. Hear music exactly as the artist intended in true surrounding sound. Q 701s employ flat-wire voice-coil technology, our patented Varimotion multilayer diaphragm, and the AKG neodymium magnet system for sparkling high-frequency signal tracking and a distortion-free bass response. Combined with true bi-wiring in the motor assembly, Q 701s produce balanced stereo separation and excellent imaging in an immersive soundscape of unequalled realism.

This review is from: AKG White with Lime Accents Q701WHT 3.5mm Connector Over-Ear Quincy Jones Signature Line Reference-Class Premium Headphone (White)
Pros: Comfortable - the only more comfortable cans I've owned were siberias back when icemat was making them (pre steel-series)
Bright - Not for everyone, but these really shine in mid to high ranges. The bass is there; its rich and clean, doesn't mud the rest of the ranges.. but it doesn't have the punch lots of people crave. This is why I like these, I love crisp, bright cans.
Quality. These aren't your baby brother's razers. They're built to last. Take care of them and they'll take care of you.
Cons: Price. While these are awesome, there are cans out there far cheaper that are ALMOST as good. I'm looking at you, grado. These have a similar sound, a bit more balanced. If you like the SR60i/80i/120is you won't be disappointed until you compare the prices.
Other Thoughts: I mostly listen to melodeath (in flames-style stuff) but dabble in everything (hence audiophile). These do everything well except maybe dubstep/rap. Some people like punchy bass in rock/metal.. not me.
I got these from headroom, but they didn't have a review on the 'egg and they deserve one.
