Product details

Sparkling harmonics, incredibly low distortion and unequalled realism in the lower frequencies – it’s the huge, airy, three-dimensional sound available only in the finest high-end speaker systems and microphones. Now, we’ve engineered it into the most accurate and responsive reference headphones we‘ve ever produced, the Q 701s. Hear music exactly as the artist intended in true surrounding sound. Q 701s employ flat-wire voice-coil technology, our patented Varimotion multilayer diaphragm, and the AKG neodymium magnet system for sparkling high-frequency signal tracking and a distortion-free bass response. Combined with true bi-wiring in the motor assembly, Q 701s produce balanced stereo separation and excellent imaging in an immersive soundscape of unequalled realism.

‘These are the only headphones I’ve heard that bring out the true sound we were striving for on records like “Billie Jean”‚ “Thriller” and “Give Me the Night“. It’s the best-quality sound I’ve heard, ever.’
– Quincy Jones
