Comments about Akg K701 Hifi Reference Class Premium Headphones:

These are professional Reference Headphones. Most may qualify this as best in price for its purpose. And i agree!

You will start to unleash the AKG 701's true sonic capabilities once you've applied about 100 hours of use… BEST when used with HP amp.

Buy beats if ur gonna be listening to music. Buy these if u want to mix records, and do some critical listening. Don't listen to other momo's who say this is not worth purchasing.. just read my tips.

And remember.. Lots of outside noise that bleeds into phones.
