I think so. They also did this to the Superlux HD681 (I got a maroon ring as well). It seems Superlux is trying to save a bit of $$$ by using a bit less painting on the phones. I personally like the maroon ring more, the bright red made them look a little like toy headphones. They also changed the text on the caps and the cups.

 

I'm also going to go and say the Superlux HD662 (red) appears to just be a closed back 681 as the 662f pretty much sounds like the 668b but closed.

Assuming that you are from Georgia and that the first language for you is English.  That block of text is just simply shocking.

He always types like that. Also, I am pretty sure that English is not his first language, and that he was drunk when he posted that.

 It's 'stream of consciousness'--can't you tell? Like, you just type it as it comes to you, even if it makes no sense. Simple really.

Either way, he has siad in the past that he usually only gets on headfi when he is drinking.

It would be nice if my typing could come anywhere near the pace of my thoughts. I guess that stream of consciousness just isn't for me.

But back on topic. Does anyone with a pair of Superlux listen to metal, particularly things along the melodic death metal side of things? I have been curious as to which Superlux model I should recommend to my metalhead buddies. I love my 662f for metal, but have no experience with any other set of cans.

I think the 669 might be better for mids. Better mids and less bassy

post #431 of 857

Really? I thought that the regular 662 had more bass than the 662f, which after all, stands for flat.

662 standard has deepest bas

662b is bassiest

66f is similar to the 668b but closed with brighter sound

Hey man... Not from Georgia just happen to live there... i from OLive HIll Kentucky... some me moms cuz'ins are Tom T Hall, June Carter Cash, Princes Diana... and most of the others...  english is over rated ... normally we use sigh language... and a couple rounds of ammo... at any rate...  glad you find it amusing... hell if you don't  laugh, then why am i typing... the real disturbing thing is you can say penis connector... but can't say Pussycat ***** where have you been? I been to England to visit the queen. What did you do there... I ate all the queens fancy feast. until she said: "wow you need to visit more often"...   Anywho ... this is a funny post page... thanks for the laughs... almost as funny as watching Red Skelton or Car 54 where are you... the HD381F ear monitors are just fantastic for metal... the HD-681 is good for head banging as well...    Cheers Doyen

I don't think that I have ever laughed as much while on this forum over the past few years than while reading that post. Absolutely amazing.

Anyway, I have been thinking of getting a pair of 381f for portable use, as they are cheap (wouldn't be too worried if they got broken or stolen) and sound great fwir. It is good to know that they do well with metal.

the 662B is hyped in the 100 HZ area... and the 10K area ... and leaves the middle short "n narrow... good for that thump and sizzle ... but not fur mixing.. or telling the true story... (unless all your **** was so boomy you needed this) the 662F seems mid boosting at first ... but it free'kin likes the pussycat story...  the no hype flat EQ makes it great for loud tracking...  and the HD-681 (the best bang in town for the buck) is really cool for setting up mixes, the low sub tones and the unreal highs... translates to tight low end and subdued highs... it gets your mix on the right path.  at least for me... but hell my 4000 HZ is doing the hillbilly whack... and maybe all the Marshall s we cranked to 11 in our teens ... but with good monitors...  can still tell whats going on... when it sounds good ... you know it, or your listing on the wrong speakers.    Cheers Doyen
