The best thing about headphones is that their sound is completely subjective to your preferences. I actually agree with you to some degree (although I have never tried the q701's) I have tried both the DT990 250 ohm and the a700's (the originals) and while I do prefer my DT990's, the a700's preform significantly better on the low ends. My music taste has changed from techno and hip-hop to 80's, classic metal and rock, and a little R&B (frank ocean mainly) and as far as vocals go, the DT990's are definitely better in the mids and highs.Originally Posted by MaximilianKohler
I've heard that the 900's aren't necessarily all-around better than the 700's. They just sound a bit different; not necessarily better. I've seen people preferring the 700's.
I had the 700's for many years and read lots of hype about the q701's. When I tested the q701's in game with an amp, in comparison to the 700's I would have said in a blind test that the q701's were a $60 headphone and the 700's were $1000 headphones.
Moral of the story is that I'll never buy anything other than 700's again. I doubt even those $1500 headphones would be significantly better.

I have a big head in general. All I can say is it was the most comfortable pair I've ever put on.
