Features & benefits

The best sounding over-ear headphone endorsed by Quincy Jones

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.

Headphones that are built to last

Built from premium materials like genuine leather, unbreakable metal arches and hard gold-plated jack cables and contacts.

QJ signature sound

The AKG Q 701 headphones feature revolutionary flat-wire voice coils that create a spacious, dramatic soundstage with precise 360-degree imaging and outstanding transient response. Patented two-layer diaphragms similar to their professional studio counterparts offer sparkling high-frequency sound and accurate bass response. Additionally, a high-performance neodymium magnet system makes the headphones heat-resistant for minimal distortion at any listening level. The Q701s deliver pinpoint imaging with unmatched realism.

Comfortable, specially shaped 3-D-form ear pads

The Q701s have been designed in collaboration with the award-winning Austrian design firm Kiska to embody AKG's signature styling aesthetic without compromising functionality or comfort. Foams of different densities combine to create the Q701s' huge, ear-enveloping, velvet 3-D-form ear pads, ergonomically shaped for a precise, repeatable fit. This shape combines with their open-back design, allowing the drivers to be aimed at the ears to produce the ideal acoustical transmission.
