Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent headphones for studio use! Dont be fooled by the Monster Cable headphones, Beats by Dre. Dont let the Marketing BS you"
Sound: I had a chance to compare the AKG Q701 with the Sennheiser HD 380 Pros, and Bose TriPort Headphones QCZ Silver. I also compared these with my Yamaha HS80M refernce monitor speakers. The Q701's were by far the most accurate with a flat reference level and detail. I had been mixing and composing on the Bose Tri-Port headphones for years, and Im sad to say that I just discovered that it was quality I was making was all wrong and inaccurate levels of what sounds right. Feature: Only reason I rated it as a nine was because their is not a carrying bag or case. It did come with two cables though! (10ft, and 20ft) Ease of Use: Just plug it in! Make sure your audio hardware can power this though! My Mbox Mini has just enough juice for it. Quality: Very Sturdy, Rugged, feels and looks well put together. The quality of the materials and excellent. Value: These headphones are pricey... but they are worth every penny if you want to take your music to the next level.
Style of Music: Hip-Hop, Electronic

"The best Headphones for mixing"
Sound: Flat frequency response, very accurate Bass and superb stereo image. Feature: Comfortable Fit, Great sound and stereo image with two detachable cables. Ease of Use: Before you return it be aware the this cans need at least 300 hours of burning time, after the real sound blooms. Quality: They feel very sturdy and solid the cables are very nice but fragile so try to step over them. they look great and very comfortable. Value: This is audiophile headphones are the best in this price range. Manufacturer Support: no problem them yet The Wow Factor: The design and sound of the cans match together with my SPL Phonitor help my to get very accurate mixes in no time Overall: im very satisfied, the only thing that can beat this headphones are the very high end speakers in very calibrated room = a lot of cash this a bargain for the sound that produce.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
