5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality. Great value., 11 May 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AKG Q701 Quincy Jones Signature Line Reference-Class Premium Headphones - Black (Electronics)
I bought mine on the 16th of December 2013 (222.99 GBP aprox. 270EUR) and they are made in China. Since there was all this fuss about being made in Austria was better, I also bought in a local store another pair made in Austria for 449EUR !! I had them both for 2 weeks. The made in China ones are more confortable, the band is softer than the ones on the made in Austria, it doesn't hurt your head as the one on the made in Austria. The made in Austria makes structural noise when you move your head. In terms of sound quality I prefer the made in China. For my ears and with my system (Rega ear2 headphones amplifier + Arcam iRDAC), the made in China ones were warmer without loosing detail. I listen mostly jazz and I found myself rediscovering my collection. Play an high resolution 24bit file, using good software like Audirvana, and they will shine. I returned the made in Austria and kept the made in China. I belive that the made in China, since they are a more recent version, were improved after custommers feedbak and comfort complaints. Good work AKG: improved quality, less expensive.
