"...the 701s exhibited clarity and detail in abundance, as well as bass that was powerful and well defined...The 701's appearance and build quality are first-rate, and I found them easy to wear. They really are "open-ear" headphones... Relying on auditory memory, I'd say that the Sennheiser 650s have the most subtle treble, teh 600s have more pronounced treble, and the 701s the most pronounced treble. Highly Recommended!" - John Marks, Stereophile Magazine, December Issue, Vol. 30, No. 12, Page 45
"...the 701s are extremely comfortable. Their huge, ear-enveloping foam pads, clad in some kind of velveteen, sat on my head for hours without seeming warm or tight... The AKG K 701s have raised the bar for natural-sounding headphones... Still: the AKG K 701s are the best-sounding headphones I've heard—and not for the money, and not for picking apart a recording or playing gotcha! with recording engineers. The K 701s just flat-out sound more like music as I hear it than any other headphones I've ever heard. I love 'em and I won't be sending 'em back.
