The Q701s deliver crisp, natural sound that brings out all of the detail in lossless audio files, CDs, and high-bitrate digital files. If you're looking for heavy bass, you'll probably want to look elsewhere, though. It's also worth noting that the open-back design means you'll be sharing your music with the world, and won't get the same kind of noise-isolation you would from more traditional closed headphones. On the plus side, the leather headband and adjustable strap provide a comfortable fit for long listening sessions.
