AKG Q701 Quincy Jones Signature Full Size Headphones

Product information

The AKG Signature Edition Q701 headphones have been designed with an unprecedented level of input from 79 GRAMMY nominated music producer Quincy Jones. From the man responsible for songs which defined an era such as ‘Thriller’, the Q701 delivers pinpoint imaging in an endless soundscape of unequalled realism. And they do it with all the style and élan of the man himself.

Quincy's signature influence offers a smoother tone and great low-end response with magnificent detail and huge soundstage depth, surpassing that of any mere ‘studio’ headphone. Featuring the revolutionary flat-wire voice coils and patented two-layer diaphragms of their studio counterparts, the Q701 carries lightweight neodymium magnet arrays and a totally open-back design allowing music to flow without interference.

Individually tested to ensure performance, the Q701 features a cushioned, genuine-leather headband and unique 3D-form ear pads which ensure a perfect fit. Sparkling harmonics, incredibly low distortion and unequalled realism in the lower frequencies - it's the huge, airy, three-dimensional sound that been available only in the finest high-end speaker systems and microphones.

The set comes with a 10ft and a 20ft detachable headphone cable, a professional 6.3mm stereo plug and a 1/4" stereo adapter.
