Comments about AKG K 701 Ultra Reference Class Stereo Headphone:

Right out of the box, they sound better than most headphones I have heard up until now. After one or two hours of warm-up they conquer everything! You have a wide sound stage, they fit your head very well and they look very hi-tech and sexy. In the picture here they look sort-of silver like, but they are white all the way. Beautiful design. Monitors in your ears, of course with a little exaggeration. You should never leave your monitors, even if you don't have optimum acoustics. For those who like excessive bass from headphones, these may not be the right ones for you, because they have a well defined bass, not exagerated. Maybe the bass could be a little more defined, but I'm sattisfied with how it is. Really a great product. It says when you open the box: Expect / and discover/ perfection. 5 Star rating, we have a Rolls Royce or Rolex on top of our ears. Thank you AKG. I can't wait to hear how they sound after the 300 hours of burn-in. If you're thinking about getting them, stop and do it for real! Cheers! PS: You have to use a dedicated amplifier, or your sound card's headphone amp imput. If you want to use it with your iPod or anything like that, forget about it.
