SK4MC "The Path I Bend"

I came across this dude by happenstance (good word, right?) And this dude is well...listen for yourself. It's pretty ill.

And keep in mind that I don't post wack things. This sound is very refreshing and I look forward to seeing what he'll do in the near future.

In an era where musicians/entertainers are collaborating with audio companies (Dre, Diddy, 50 Cent, Rick Ross) music icon, Quincy Jones teams up with AKG to release an adaptation of the K701 series, the Q701.

Quincy has an astonishing 79 Grammy nominations and 27 awards (including Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and "We Are the World," the highest selling album and single of all time).

  • Sensitivity: 105 dB
  • Weight: 235 grams w/o cord
  • Impedance @ 1kHz: 62 Ohms
