Anime alway can help to advertising a product. As you see, Mio is wearing this headphone in ep5 of K-On!, and it in directly make the product become popular, but I believe more or less is because of those super fan that want the thing that Mio have.
AKG K701 (cost USD$250 or more -__-')
Above is the real thing of the AKG K701, a headphone that cost more than USD$250, which is a very expensive headphone to me >.<', now I only know Mio is so rich lol. Due to it appearance in K-On! episode 5, the headphone become sold out in e-earphone.jp. The ranking of the this Headphone even go up to the 4th popular earphone in Kakaku (totally jump 43 place). Even the phone (D902i) in the above picture become a popular item.
The sudden increment of the sale is totally GOD, almost 90degree. KyoAni has done it again, from what I remember, the anime from KyoAni also make a big influence, like previous Suzumiya Haruhi series, Lucky Star, and now K-On!. Previously, Yui's guitar also become a more popular guitar because of it appearance in K-On!. Those fan so rich to willing spend on the headphone, for me I really can't buy lol, too expensive already. Source via ACG Space.
