It's All About The Sound
No one knows sound like Quincy Jones, the man behind Thriller (the best-selling album of all time), "We Are the World" (the best-selling single of all time) and an unprecedented 79 GRAMMY nominations and 27 GRAMMY awards - more than any living musician. Quality sound is why Quincy has used AKG products for years to create his music and why it's the only brand of headphones he endorses.
"This is the best quality sound I've heard in headphones, ever. And I'm proud my name is on them." - Quincy Jones
Music has never sounded better, or closer.
Sparkling harmonics, incredibly low distortion and unequalled realism in the lower frequencies - it's the huge, airy, three-dimensional sound that's been available only in the finest high-end speaker systems and microphones. Now, AKG have engineered it into the most accurate and responsive reference headphones they've ever produced, the Q701. Hear music exactly as the artist intended.
