    Default HEADPHONES ADVICE : AKG Q701 vs BEATS EXEC.

    Hey everybody,

    I'm looking to get new headphones for studio and for DJing, and im hoping I can get away with using the same pair. I am currently using pioneer HDJ500 which obviously just don't cut it anymore.

    Now, I am cheap and would rather spend my money on studio equipment then headphones lol. SOOO I am looking at purchasing with my air miles. I saw that the AKG Q701 are now available, and I heard they have superb sound for the studio, however I have not heard if they are good to DJ with or not...

    Also available is the Beats Executive, which from professionals I hear are not worth it. And I do not like having to carry batteries with me,

    Looking to get some advise. Please help me

    Why dont your hdj500`s cut it anymore? They are the best compared to the other two choices you want.

    Sony 7506 a very good headphone at a cheap price. They get good reviews all the way around. If you want to spend over a hundred I suggest doing your own homework or buying something middle of the road. I love my TMA-1s. But others don't.

    this is also a good place to go if you want to nerd out about it...

    ill have too test out the 7506, i used to have the sony 700, quite cheap for what you get, but those ones as well i found distorted abit, and they broke after like 2 months. But the 7506 i have heard good things about.

    maybe ill just wait and hdj 2000 ... ... But i need to get a new computer for production before i spend that kinda money on headphones
