AKG Q701

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys. I'm currently using the ath-m50 and I love the sound, but the earpads are very small and I prefer the earpads like the sennheiser pc350 has, where the ear doesn't touch anywhere. Do you guys know what size are the akg q701? I'm also looking into the dt 990. What do you guys think?
thanks in advance

From what I've heard, the Beyerdynamic ear pads are the most comfortable ear pads of them all (the velour ones). I'm not sure about the size.

The earpads on the DT990 are huge and comfy. In general I think they are the most comfortable headphone I've ever used.

The only thing that might start to hurt after a long time is the headband, but I have this problems with I think all headphones I've had, so it might just be me.

I have big head and medium ears, both headphones will fit and are both comfortable. The dt 990 is better, the q701 headband digs into your head after about 20 miniutes.


Why do you think the DT990 are better? you mean spec-wise?


edit: I've been reading that to take full advantage of the Q701 you need to have some expensive equipment. Is this true? The only equipment I have for sound is the asus stx
