Excellent value for money - Reviews AKG K 701

Value For Money : Excellent
I use this headset for less than a year. I tested a lot of headphones being ingéson. I worked a lot on the 7509 7506, 150 DT100, AKG, Sennheiser, and others.

I think it sounds akg headphones (that's good), the typical gloss less. I mean there a defined and balanced, without exaggeration frequency ranges or significant dynamics. The lack of brightness is probably exacerbated by my convertos DA output sound card and headset preamp, so temper. Especially since this headset has a reputation for having rather low back, when I made a balanced level this home.

What we hear in the headphones tend to be found on other tracks, making it an element of monitoring rather reliable. In terms of listening leisure, this headset plays the game very well also. Much less flattering than many models that I could listen to, it nevertheless offers a very nice rendering, and undemanding.

Considering the price of this toy (189 € in thotho), I would do the selection again. In my view, it would cost € 200-300 for such a quality in the competition. So hat, personal I keep preciously, a real pleasure.

I use this headset to compose and mix my songs.
The wearing comfort is very good. I note, however, that I finally feel on top of the skull after a two hours, when my hair cut very short, because of the sky-hoop plastoc. Otherwise very nice.
I really listen to everything, electro ultra loaded bass, jazz funk records of 60-70 years, taken its raw, classic rock ...
The coating of the atria is very silky, very nice. It does not make any sweat or feel a sensation of unpleasant heat as with others. I live in the meeting, and it does not bother me in the summer.

This headphone exudes strength. I will, however, always pay attention to the adjustable portion between the atria and the arch, which is made of elastic.
The jack is unfortunately not detachable. So to ask carefully on the base provided with a notch at the base to avoid bending the cable.
The sun of the meeting somewhat attacked the Carthusian dyeing ear, but otherwise I think this headset is both very well finished and dirt.

This headset works in 62 ohm. We need a minimum semi pro equipment to take its true potential. Personally, I'm running on a c400, so sound card input range. So I put my opinion subject, not having had the opportunity to test it on a gear that is able to reveal its real potential.

The overall record is flat type neutral. It is not with this headset that has the richest, flattering, or a maximum of terrain tracks. The highs are pretty dull, rendering accurate bass but not on the front of the soundstage (roughly the opposite of what features a Beats by Dre). Without particularly tender ear to perceive each element, we see that everything is there, clear and defined, even in the details that we do not perceive elsewhere. And that is exactly what I expected of him.

In terms of insulation, this is absolutely not the point, this headphone is a semi closed.
Means more or less what is happening outside, on the other hand from the perspective of the listener, any vehicle passing by hinder almost always listening.
