Introduction

The AKG K701s are a mid-range set of cans that see wide use in the DJ and mixer community. With a flat frequency response and wide open soundstage, it's not hard to see why. Though these cans aren't as good as studio monitor speakers, they will work in a pinch and not do the same to your head. All-around great cans.
