The AKG Quincy Jones Q701 is a high-end set of over-ear headphones, a flagship offering. Quincy Jones touts these headphones as bringing out the true sound of the classic Michael Jackson records. The accurate sound reproduction of these headphones stems from the high-performance neodymium magnets, which create a large magnet field, increasing sensitivity in the flat-wire voice coil. This makes for a better bass response and higher overall sound quality. Contributing to the high-quality sound is the two-layer diaphragm of these headphones, which also helps to prevent unwanted noise. As far as the fit of these headphones goes, the 3D-Form headpads conform to your head shape. The cushioned leather headband contributes to the comfort factor. Besides their 99.99% oxygen-free cable, these headphones resemble the lower cost offering, the mini on-ear Q460s, in no way.
