Quincy Jones is truly one of the biggest icons in American music, and for this reason, Harman International found it appropriate to dedicate a line of premium headphones to the famous music producer, namely the the Quincy Jones Signature Line by AKG.
There are three different lines of headphones: The Q701 reference headphones for $480, the smaller Q460, on-ear foldable mini headphones for $230, and the Q350 in-ear headphones for $150. The two lower-end headphones are both iPhone compatible with in-line mics and remote control, whereas the top, Q701 is more about accurate sound reproduction.
The Q 701 comes with ergonomically-shaped velvet cushions and removable 99-percent oxygen-free wires. The Q460 on-ear mini headphones use a regular 3.5mm stereo cord with gold-plated jack plugs and adapters for 2.5mm or full plugs, and folds completely flat. The Q360 earbuds also support the adapters and come with a carrying case and cable winder. All three designs in the Quincy Jones Signature Line will be available in black, green, and white.
They might seem expensive, but since a share of the proceeds from every set of headphones sold in the Quincy Jones Signature Line by AKG will go toward the Quincy Jones Musiq Consortium, a foundation dedicated to making music education an ongoing part of the lives of American children, the spicy price points don’t seem that high anymore.
