AKG K701 Headphones
Superior Sound and Performance

Here we review the AKG K701, a high end pair of headphones from Austrian company AKG.

The search for a good pair of headphones can be long and difficult, but your search may very well end with the AKG K701 headphones.

These are high end headphones that provide professional sound and quality.

The key lies in the flat-wire voice coil technology and the 3D-Form ear pads that conform to the shape of your head, allowing you to sit for hours on end wearing these beauties.

In some cases you might actually forget you are wearing them!

With conventional headphones, you will be well aware of the events going on around you. You might even become distracted by them. With a model of headphone like the AKG K701, you will be able to filter out the background and become completely engrossed in your music.

If you were to add a headphone amp, you would be presented with not only higher volume levels, but also greater articulation. This will make for clearer sound and more enjoyable music.

The question you might have however is what others have said about these headphones. There are many good reviews and a couple of not so good reviews.

Your mission will be to seek out those reviews and determine whether or not the opinions of other users should affect your decision to buy. In some cases they will, but in other cases your cup of tea might be offensive to someone else.

The headphones that one chooses and prefers are different with every single person.


Many state that the headphones are extremely comfortable for the most part. In addition to that, they look good and find that healthy middle ground that other headphones lack.

One reviewer stated that these headphones did not have the "in your face" quality of other headphones.

So overall, they sound good, they look good and they are fairly comfortable.

They do look good but on the subject of comfort, some users have found that they fall a bit short. One user said that they would only be comfortable if you had a flat head.

In addition to that, many believe the design is fundamentally flawed, and that flaw causes channels to malfunction. That particular malfunction is covered under the warranty however, so it is not something that you will need to particularly worry about.


The K701 are great pair of headphones from AKG.

They will easily convey the sound and music that you want and of course allow you to listen through an amp or even on your iPod if you so desire.

That being said, these might just be the headphones you have been searching for. If you're ready for superior sound and performance, you're ready for the AKG K701 headphones.
