you got a graph like that that add the k702 into the compare? would be interested to see. That said very very tiny differences in houseing and things can make pretty significant changes to the sound signiture of headhpones so "more or less" the same is probably a missnomer.

the K702 measures exactly the same as the K701. the Q701 is very similar to the K70x series but there are still differences.

i'm sorry but i do love the bass from the q701. it goes low, tight and is not overpowering, just how i like it, and this is coming from a bass headed headphone (ultrasone 780) but i guess is preference. Now the AD700, those were bass light that not even EQ was able to fix this.

A clear difference in the bass and treble region, beyond margin of error as well. But tbh, the Q701 and K701 are both sub-bass recessed.

I think the links from InnerFidelity I posted earlier give a clearer picture, since those show both FR and distortion plots, square wave response, etc. Also you get to see the difference between two K701s, which is not necessarily trivial either.

Treble region and bass in FR plots will depend somewhat heavily on the positioning of the headphone on the dummy head, so relatively subtle differences like these are not that conclusive in my opinion. Furthermore, note that HeadRoom normalizes the responses by referencing them all to 1 kHz amplitude. If you dropped the Q701 plot (the red line) entirely by about 2-3 dB, it would look a lot more like the K701 plot. And that's just a matter of normalization--the 1 kHz reference is arbitrary, so any other 0 dB reference is as valid.

That said, even from just this inconclusive data, I would suspect the Q701 is a little different as well. I'm just skeptical of very large differences, unless the sample variance between sets is large.

Sighted A/B listening between K701/702 and Q701 anecdotally also seem to suggest differences, but those could possibly also be due to sample variances. Note how the two different K701 tested have different volumes. That alone can be enough to bias listening impressions. Sighted A/B listening provides some more evidence, but it's not bullet proof either, especially when you consider the additional cognitive biases from knowing beforehand which is which.

Just curious if anyone can recommend me to some Audiophile level headphones that have nice bass for anything from Rock to Dubstep!

Well I think Denon AH-D2000 could be a good match- they do well with a wider variety of music then some other headphones, and are quite good in the bass department.

I hear you can call J&R and get a pretty good price on them. http://www.jr.com/ahd2000-aroundtheear-headphones/pe/DNN_AHD2000/

They go up from time to time for $250ish on amazon. Anything under $300 is well worth it for them.

You can also see if any other e-tailers are selling them for a good price atm, but the warranty will be no good if it's not an authorized retailer. I think they don't let the authorized retailers advertise the low prices, hence why you have to call j&r.
