Why change it if it ain't broken.

Sorry for bumping the thread after so long, I just need some extra advice.

I started a thread, let me quote myself from there: I generally listen to fast paced, energetic, mostly heavy music (mostly power metal and bassy electro and electropop).

Since that I've kinda given up on getting a pair closed headphones, so that is not a concern anymore. I'm just wondering if the 681 EVO would be the right choice for me or is there something more suitable for that music.

Thanks in advance!

681 Evo is indeed the bassiest Superlux and should suit you fine.

Just picked up the 661. Extraordinary quality and value for the money. They do not sound as similar to the MDR-7506 as I have been led to believe - but they are competent headphones.  The piercing highs that I experienced with the 668Bs are also present in the 661. The mids are also scooped out more than I would like. The headphones are easily outclassed by something costing $150 - but for the money, the 661 is incredible. More than likely, the 661 will be used in my headphone rotation and I'll find some specific purpose for it.

 

I'm going to offer my nephew the opportunity to have any of the Superlux cans I have if he wants. He's currently got a $10 of Sony ZX cans, and both the 661 and 631 and a step up from those.

I just used google translate, even is hard to understand it, chinese translation is far from good.

Just got two pairs of the HD681EVO (one each of black and white). These cans have much more in common with the HD631 in terms of sound signature than I was led to believe by reading posts on head-fi. This probably due to the somewhat limited distribution of the HD631 by posting members on the board. People are mostly comparing the 681EVO with the 681.

 

The HD631 was Superlux's attempt to mimic the sound signature of the HDJ2000. While the actual size and feel of the 681EVO is similar to the 681, the signatures are very different. I would bet that the drivers in the 681EVO and 631 are the same - one day I will rip apart the cups and see. 

 

The 681EVO and 631 both share the somewhat darker signature. Bass is deep but not bloated. It will get bloated if I turn up the bass knob all the way up - but I generally listen to it with tone controls removed from the signal path. Both have what seem to be recessed treble - but after getting used to the sound - there is actually plenty of accurate treble there - the perception of recessed treble is due to listening to other devices that have accentuated treble. Both the 681EVO and the 631 share the V-shaped signature that takes place right around the typical pop male singer's voice. The true test (for me) is to listen and see if the percussion and cymbals sound like they do in real life or do they sound like tss tsss tss tss - which might sound good but is not actually what these things sound like played by real instruments in real life. Both the 631 and 668EVO do not have the piercing sibilance of the 668B or 661.

 

My favorite Superlux cans from my collection are the HD631 - and now due to almost identical signatures, the HD681EVO. I like the larger cushions of the 681EVO and I like that the 681EVO came with two pairs of cushions - one pleather and the other velour. I do not like that the 681EVO cups do not swing out like the HD631. 

 

When wearing around the white 681EVOs in public,comments were made that the "headphones are huge" and I was asked if those were beats. People do comment on the 631 in terms of their aesthetic. I have never received any comments about the 668Bs and I have never worn the 661 in public.

 

All 4 (631, 661, 681EVO, and 668B) are great values for the money, with the 631 and 681EVO being used to post. All 4 will find a place somewhere in my rotation - as opposed to some that get stuck away in a closet forever.

But HD-681 & HD-662 series have treble peak in slightly different location (at least to my ears because HD-681 MKII filter affects HD-662F differently), so, I think those HD-662F filter values I gave should work better. Those values can be found @ rockgrotto forum where solderdude/frans were still active users and gave me advice about HD-662F filter.

Haven`t done any exact measurements but I find it perfect for my HD-662F ;) Anyway, choice is yours.


Solderdude is a freaking wizard I swear.

I don't think I'll ever understand his circuitry "filter" sorcery.
