    For sale these Q701. They have been recabled for balanced with a removable Eidolic 4-pin mini-xlr termination, and an eidolic XLR on the other end. Balanced these are so much easier to drive/get them to sound good.
    They also have the horrid Q701 headband bumps removed, Dekoni nuggets stitched in their place.

    The headband elastics are still in good condition. The earpads have recently been replaced with official 712_Anniv earpads purchased from AKG direct.

    Price: €175 incl shipping for friends/contributors, excl shipping for everyone else. You basically get the eidolic pins, cable and balanced rewiring for free..

    Throwing in XLR>3.5mm with screw-on 6.3mm adapters, so that it connect to anything.

    Amazon has them for about €320 (converted from local currency), plus these seem to have undergone quite a bit of work to better them. €200 seems not horrible all things considered depending on condition.

    I don't actually mind the AKG K/QXXX series, not my style but not a bad alternative to the classic trio if the HD650 is too mushy for taste/upstream isn't excellent.

    You're linking K701. I really don't think we're talking about the same headphone. The Q701 has never been priced as cheap as the k701/k702 :) the Q701 has memory foam earpads and has quite a lot more bass punch. It's a different tuning alltogether

    The Q badge alone is worth the premium, and Quincy Jones's endorsement besides!!

    Taxes are horrible, people will piss pass over this if the price doesn't sit well with em. Shipping alone will eat into your cut if it's an international sale, my sympathies. Good luck!

    Thanks! If no interest here i'll try head-fi and ebay ;)

    I liked these Q701 a lot hence the modding effort, but now that I'm getting Ananda they seem a little redundant hence the for sale.
