I just picked up local set of AKG q701's in black.
The price was $100.
Good news- they look like new.
Bad news- they smell like an ash tray.
So I've done a couple things. An extensive cleaning plan to clear out the smell.
Not done yet, but it's greatly reduced.
While I had everything pulled apart, I did the bass port mod. So far, so good.
They seem to sound pretty good. At a 100 clams, very good.
I'm going to have to run through the Senns and the Grado ps500 to see
how they stack up. Off the top of my head, the ps500's were warmer, but
more to follow.
