AKG K701 Reference Class Open-back Premium Headphones with Flat-wire Technology is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Amazing sound quality and ultimate comfort for long sessions. Add the mod mic and it becomes the best combination for sound and speech. Only downside is with them being opened backed they do leak a some sound.
Date published: 2017-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the price Doesn't get much better than this in this price bracket. Superb sound and very comfortable to wear - only (slight) complaint is that the cable isn't detachable.
Date published: 2016-03-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Bought it in June 2015, used it for 3 months then the right side stopped working. Scan replaced it after I sent it back. I'm worried that it will happen again though, and if they would replace it again. I hope it was a one off thing, but how could it be? If its a inherent fault with all of them, then I'm doomed. Good headphone, good for studio. Do some research and you will see.
