sounds good! i've never heard a pair of AKG's before as the high end stuff is really not spoken of very much but i know they are a big brand for use in studio's! im tempted to get some but they are alot of money

I'd check out a specialist headphone site for more info if I were you, such as Head-Fi.org. Haven't heard Monster Beat Studio or AKG K701/2 but FWIR they're likely to be massively different in their sound signature so there's a danger you'll be very disappointed when you first hear them. On said site some folks really like the AKGs and some are very critical which can often lead to boring slanging matches. Also something of a sheep mentality can lead lots of folks blindly slagging off Dr. Re Studio Beats and Bose. There's lots of useful info too though.

Might also be interested in reading the pdf download here for some views of the AKG, Beats and others in the same price range :

good advice but i'd add there is only one way to buy any, listen to em first :)

Preferably, and buy 'em from somewhere with good returns policy in case they don't work out with your stuff (and you don't want to have buy more stuff to make them work) ;)

I know its a late reply, but in case you might still be toiling with getting these, i own akg k702's and they are awesome 'if' you want good reference headphones or into listening to high quality audio and expect high end reproduction. They are open design and bleed a lot of sound but give a better representation of each instrument and where is sits in the mix. The beats studios are closed back and offer a more compressed and accentuated low end for it too, expect to wear in the 701/702s for at least a 100 hours before they are at their best though. easily done.

probaby wasted 5 minutes here writing this, but it might still help :)
