Oh, definitely. I'm a fan of forward mids as well, but I have to admit that the Superluxes are excellent for their price bracket.

I'm hesitating between the 668B and the 662.

 

Which one is better for a person that is in love with the Vsonic GR07??

 

I've read this thread from page 1

GR07 is far different from superlux headphones.

Or HD330 for bit relaxed one (it's the open version of HD660)

Why would you say that the 660 is better? care to explain further.. thanks :)

post #263 of 953

Nice attack, nice tight punchy bass, good treble and mid-range. Review from headfonia is here. Cheaper alternatif for rock music (for me, ofc) is the 662 series. Nice spike for guitar.

HD668B has this smooth sound, with laid-back midrange, but very good sound-stage and positioning (for the price ofc). I found the smooth sound of hd668B make guitar sounded rather uninspiring...

668b eats all those classical and symphony music. Also pretty good with instrumental jazz, although rather cold (not warm enough). Not very good for jazz with vocal (or any vocal-heavy music, I guess), because it's laid-back vocal isn't intimate enough (I rather liking forward-vocal/ forward-presentation). Very good with music with good recording (you can pin-point the location of the instruments) and music with lot of layers on them (668b separation is superb. For the price).

 

well, I found the 662 series better than 668b for rock and pop music. More forward vocal, nice treble spike for guitars. Not as smooth as 668b but much more FUN.

And yes, I don't think superlux full-sized headphones are for portable.... they just... bulky, and rather.... let just say look rather bland. My Audio-Technica SJ33 is much, much better looking than 668b or 662.

 

Can't comment on 661 as I never try it myself. Sorry.

oh! another Sj33 owner!

yes, I like it very much. I'm not listened to rock very much, tough, so I can forgive it (the sj33 sound, I mean). I don't think it veiled, it's more.... boxy... sounded. Well, it's a closed-phones, so it's understandable. Yes, the high could bit rather sharp sometimes, and it's not what you would call smooth, so much spike especially on upper-mid and treble area. and rather boomy bass with mid-bass hump. But it's very FUN lol.


You're welcome, and I will be waiting for your impression on 662F :)

Pretty much of the ATH cans has recessed mids have you noticed?.. its not great for metal/rock.. but its great on other aspects and really worth the price.. im decideing between superlux hd661, 662f, AKG K518le, and sennheiser HD448 for my music taste..what do you prefer most for me?

I find the mid of sj33 rather forward. If you think sj33 mid recessed, then I think you better go for grado, or alessandro. Both have very forward presentation, and both known as the best for rock. But they are open headphone, so they isolate none.
