Yeah, they are great cans but even much better when Frans mkII hardware filter is applied. Recommend to try it out if You have basic soldering skills ;)

Only thing I find those cans lacking is soundstage depth towards front. It has great wide soundstage and separation but compared to Fidelio X1 they totally lack depth towards front.

But I still have those cans for friends and other ppl to try out the first taste of good sounding cans not like beats or other crap that nowdays young pop culture mostly use.

Yeah, I actually looked in to that one time.  Anything involving an electrical schematic is not for me.  I actually tried soldering a power transistor in my car recently and failed miserably.  The treble on these really doesn't bother me.  If it ever gets to the point where it does, I'll probably just apply a little EQ to tame it down some.

HD681 has spiky treble. It annoying most people. Including me. And what comes to bass. It's a bit boomy. If you gently lower 60 Hz -3 to 5 db it makes bass snappier. My settings are +6 30Hz (optional), -3 60Hz, +2 4500 Hz, +4 9875 Hz (need to be exactly), -4 12000Hz. I have done bass and treble dampering mod. So probably you have to adjust more equalizer than me.

Ahhh,, interesting, they look like HD25-1/Amperior copies. Curious about them too.

 

I got my HD685 directly from a contact in Taiwan before they were officially sold but as someone who appreciates Supberlux generally I was disappointed. Not the quality I was expecting, somehow underwhelmed by the sound quality, expected more for e $99 Superlux can. 

 

Anyhow, if I can get my hands onto the HD562 I will let you know.

 

Cheers,

Just noticed on Amazon that the current version of the HD681 EVO now has detachable cables.  It comes with one long and one short cable plus additional velour pads.  To me, this is an amazing value for $40.  I love my original HD681.  I hope to make it better with some velour pads that are on order plus the addition of some tissue paper under the new pads to tame the highs a bit.  The EVO's are a temptation though.  Sadly, I don't have the funds right now to get them.:frown:

Just use ferplast active charcoal filter and cotton wool pad to lower treble :) Active charcoal filter is 2-3€ and cotton wool pads maybe two euros whole packet... Two to three layers of charcoal filter and one cotton wool pad. I recommend to use thicker and bigger ear pads.

This will also deodorize the air coming out of the cans. . .

Believe me, the red 681 sounds better than EVO.
