AKG Q701 Open-back Over-ear Headphone Review

Better than 99% of Reviewed Headphones

It feels weird to have a celebrity-endorsed set of cans take our 10, but the Q701s did it.


Wow. The re-brand of the AKG K701s nets another fantastic set of headphones, endorsed by none other than Quincy Jones himself. If you're prone to writing off cans that come with a household name attached, that's a mistake: the Q701s are stone cold takers, they're piggy bank shakers, and don't waste their time reproducing trash.
