Good to read your comments on the HD668b. I've been telling people to get this great <$50 can for a year or two now. It's good to see them getting some recognition finally. Did you know they make some REALLY decent microphones as well?
I own a couple of Superlux headphones (HD669, HD668b, HD681, HD662, HD381) and they are all great value. The HD662 stands out for me since it's just so much fun and has a great soundstage for a closed can. The HD669 is nothing more than a closed version of the HD668b and just a great low budget closed studio monitor. Bright like the sun though. All Superlux headphones have a tendency towards sibilance. They need a warm source, like you said, and A LOT of burn-in.
Interesting. I do think the HD668b is a bit on the bright side but nothing I can't handle. Wonder why a closed version would be even brighter... usually it goes the opposite way when sealing the drivers off.
Nice read on the HD668b. before getting my K601 i used the 668b a lot. they are great for some nice speed tech metal
For me they are not so comfortable tho, the wings on the top on my head press a bit hard, a friend of mine that had them for 1 month said they were the most comfortable pair he ever used so i guess, my head too egg shaped.
besides fast music they are really good with games too.
I've always say this are not portable guys,,,I'll crack in laugh if I ever see someone walking in the park using this on,
More portable than the DT770 and JVC's HA-DX series, which I've used on the go for various reasons . I was surprised by how tame the HD668B looked on me compared to my K601 and K701. Maybe it's the color...
Any idea if / when the TMA-1s will be added? I used this thread mainly to decide between my M50 and HD25 purchase, and ended going w/ the M50 as it was cheaper and loved it :) but now looking to upgrade and deciding (mainly) between TMA-1s and HD25s as they are far more portable than the M50s (which I must say, look pretty weird even on my neck). Sorry if it sounds demanding. Can't find anything better than a comparison via charts showing average scores.
No plans for a TMA-1 at this time. I'd love a beyer 1350 as well but I'm afraid the next dozen or so reviews are confined to the <$200 range.
