AKG K 702 Review

The AKG Case Let's end this week with another famous name: AKG and their reference-class K 702. Our opinion about its little brother, the K 271, was pretty balanced: it has a very detailed high-end but a too weak low-frequency range. What about the K 702? read more…

Sell your Beats by Dre headphone (Q701 Quincy Jones Signature)

By JimboSpins, 12/12/2012
I have been using the Quincy Jones signature AKG Q701 headphones for about a year now. You can purchase them in a few different colors. The style of them is what attracted me to them, they have a nice futuristic looking style and I actually think they look a lot better than Beats By Dre headphones and Beats By Dre headphones are suppose to be the ones with the most style but I don’t think so.
These semi open back headphones come with a high performance cable and flatwire voice coil technology. The headband is made of real leather and they are self adjusting, meaning that it will adjust once you put it on and you do not have to worry about changing anything. The ear pads are very comfortable and have a special technology to make them really surround your ear with comfort.
Now when it comes to the sound of the AKG Q701 I had my hopes really high before I even heard them because of the name “Quincy Jones” and because of the price tag on them I knew that they were going to be great. I was completely blown away by these, and I was shocked that they didn’t cost more than they do because each individual pair gets tested and numbered, so when you get a pair you have the peace of mind to know that it was tested by someone to make sure it was the best possible pair and no quality control issues.
I would take these any day over a pair of Beats By Dre studio headphones. The Beats By Dre became more of the trending thing because of the colors they come in and the “Dre” name. But if you really want to get great sounding headphones and have the peace of mind knowing that they are getting tested individually then you need to get these. You will thank me later.

Not worth the buy (K 44)

By sw80, 03/03/2013
The AKG K 44 actually came with a microphone that I purchased about 2 years ago. I still own these headphones but do not use them much because I do not feel like they are very good. They feel very cheap and plastic like and the sound quality is average at best. The price of them brand new is only around 30 dollars which is not bad for a back up pair of studio headphones but the quality is nowhere near where my Shure headphones are.
The low end in these is not bad at low volumes but when turned up it can get to be very distorted, same thing with the high frequencies. They do not sound bad until the headphones are turned up and then they can get really distorted and that makes them impossible for me to work with. I have used them just as another set of headphones in my home studio in case someone is here and I need an extra pair.
The AKG K 44 headphones are semi closed back, circumaural headphones that come with a 3.5mm stereo adapter. Though they feel cheap and plastic like, they never did break or crack so I guess they are durable. One thing I can say about them is that they are pretty comfortable compared to other headphones that I have used in the past. They felt fine after wearing them for upwards of an hour or more. They didn’t not get uncomfortable around my ears or on the top of my head. They can be adjusted to fit basically any head size but they didn’t come with a carry pouch/case and they do not fold down in any way shape or form so transporting them can be a hassle because they are not very portable at all. I do not recommend purchasing these with so many other headphones that are so much better.
