Summary: Without mods it's quite decent headphone but after modding it becomes very good. High priority is to get treble down atleast. I have been using cotton wool pad and three layer of thin active carbon filter paper to reduce treble. And bass needs also little dampering too.
Pros: Great soundstage, deep bass and punchy, crisp and intimate treble. Cheap.
Cons: Require damping mod atleast for the high treble. Need sturdier ear pads.
Summary: Who would have ever thought that cans that cost 20~ bucks could sound pretty good, well some how Superlux did it and this is the result. I have the Presonus HD 7 which is essentially the same headphone
At the price range I didn't really expect anything great, and not to my surprise they were...
Summary: AWESOME SOUND can't beat these for price and they re tough too .My teens love em and steal them on me all the time to watch movies with or listen to music ,me too LOL .Long cord can get tangled around things not it self so much tho and comfy to wear too.The bad too big to wear out or carry around...
Summary: I'm member on a forum for bassguitar players and since a few years the Superlux HD681 are the most spoken of headphones on there. Because of the price vs basic sound quality. After I bought the DT770 pro it seemed funny ordering this one on top, for comparisment and good for recording too.
Pros: Cheap, good basic sound, cheap, decent build quality, cheap, includes carrying bag, cheap, self-adjusting headband and did I mention it's cheap ?
Cons: Harsh highs (solved by the filter mod), a bit tight clamping, all plastic (but makes it light) and not solid feeling.
Summary: When the package reached, my first impression is... honestly cheap. Simply a plastic wrapped with a hard cupboard holding the HD681 which i understand because of considering the budget. The headphone comes along with a 6.3 mm plug adapter and carrying bag.
Pros: light weight, good clarity and high bass
Cons: stiff and sweaty ear pads, wire length option and portability
This is a review of the Superlux hd 681 Evo, Version II. It is my first review on Head-Fi, so bear with me. The particular Evo under review here has roughly 40 hrs of burn-in time on it and you should be aware that many knowledgeable Evo users feel the proper burn-in time for these cans...
Pros: powerful, engaging bass, beautiful vocals and guitars, excellent soundstaging
Cons: bass can be slgihtly sluggish at times, mids may seem slightly recessed
Summary: These cans need cc. 50-100 hours burn-in time to give you the best performance. Their sound is very good for the price. In some cases I even prefer them to my girlfriend's Sennheiser HD-650 (you can buy ~10 EVOs for its price), because the EVO has a very natural, realistic sound, while the highs of...
Summary: Superlux HD-681 EVO Review
The Superlux HD-681 EVO is a pioneer in the world of audio quality. As this is a budget headphone, I will be critiquing, and comparing it to other headphones similar to it in price to sound correlation.
Pros: Sweet Bass, Dramatically improved Mids, and Low Price
Summary: I got those from thomann.de for 28€, shipping included ;-)
I own and am used to Sennheiser px-100, cx880, Etymotic hf2.
I wanted to get detailed headphones like Etymotic hf2, but warm, and comfortable for longer period of time.
Pros: deep and defined bass, warm, light, sturdy and easy to modify
Cons: big cans, isolation is weak, lack of airyness unless modified
