Introduction

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.
