Q701 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the Q701 nearly 5 years ago and abused them to a maximum. They carried me on bicycle through rain, dropped a thousend times from my table and so on. Just the plastic-height-headband-piece and one of the two cables are broken after all but who cares? They work perfectly. The sound is absolutly great and i like how clean the voices are. Also in my opinion they are very comfortable. Sometimes i use them 10-12 hours a day. 5/5 would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Headphones yet!!! I prefer them to my NS10s and probably even my Focal speakers. Perfect for everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and great sound! I bought the Q701 as an anniversary gift for my wife so she can watch her shows on the TV without disturbing the children at night. She and I both love them. Definitely get an amplifier for these headphones since tv and stereo jacks are normally unamplified. I paired ours up with the FiiO E12 amp and it does the job fine. (Don’t be afraid to get a stronger amp than mine either.) The over-ear styling is much more comfortable than the ear-smushing style. The phones are durable, the cables DO wear out at the user end of the cable, the same way phone charger cables do. That’s why they sell replacement cables. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Q701 by AKG This is a great product. I am very happy I bought this. It has great sound quality even though it did not come with any software for sound configuration. I feels pretty sturdy but not solid. It's not completely made out of very hard materials however, I believe that this is because it's made to be comfortable at the same time as built well. Over all, this is a awesome product. It's wired and that's how I like headphones. I just wish It came with sound editing/configuration software for a pc/mac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most confortable and durable, no competitors! I lost count how many times i droped this. Part of it appers to be broken, but it still holds firmly and the sound is completly unchanged for 4-5+ years by now. Only 2 issues with it. I only found a handfull of occasion when it was producing any noticable bass, altho when it did it was good. The thing that triggers it must be very specific. Last thing is that the cable can get stiffy and eventually break inside. I just contacted them for option to get more cables, dont know if there will be any.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quality... Great sound quality... but leaves your head physically sore due to its weight distribution after some time. The left ear has gone mute with no solution, and they replaced it. And it happened again. The sound is great, but I'm not confident in its durability.
