I read that sound right out of the box will have a tinny quality to it until 100h of burn in have been achieved, but since my cans are used can't confirm that. I can say that the bass is very crisp (though not overpowering since sound profile is flat) and that the soundstage is amazing, when I close my eyes I can picture where each instrument or singer is positioned. The volume is a little low on these compared to my Beyer DT-250's, it's not like I can't live with it, but the K701s definitely benefit from being hooked up to an amp.
The ear cups are large circumaurals, so comfort as far as my ears are concerned is not a problem. In fact, once I put them on, I often will forget that I'm wearing them. The one comfort issue I do have is with the headband. On the underside, there are eight bumps spread across the band. When I looked at pictures, I thought that they would be soft to act as a cushion of sorts, but now that I own the cans I realize that the bumps are hard and will apply a lot of pressure to the top of the head (especially the top two bumps). Some people put a towel or sponge between their head and the band, but I just adjust where the band sits on my head, the pressure doesn't completely go away, but it does lessen enough to where I don't notice it as much. It's a small minus to what are otherwise a great pair of headphones.
for less money.
Update 2014: I have listened to a ton of different headphones since I wrote this review back in the day when I was actively doing the DJ thing. I have to say tonight I caught new headphone fever. So to justify my new purchase of course I had to pull out the collection. Sennheiser 595, Beats with noise canceling, Grado SR 325, V moda LP, Ultrasone pro 780, and on and on. When these things are amped there is no better sounding headphone in my collection. I still prefer my Ultrasone's 780"s as my go to head phone of all times because of their sound and versatility. These AKG's are right there and in some respects have a more in depth and balanced sound field and still gives out thumping bass without sacrificing the rest of the sound field. These require a bit more push to overcome their impedance. In third place are the Grado's. I love the silky smooth integration and I can't find fault with these. Obviously not for direct use with mobile computing devices unless you have a headphone amp along for the ride. These have stood the test of time like fine wine.
They are higher impedance (62 ohms), so they won't be sounding as loud on some devices (like phones, made for 32 ohms). A headphone amp is needed sometimes, but not always (like is the case of other 240-600 ohm headphones).
