Damn that sucks, but its good that these superluxes are so damn inexpensive. Makes them good for messing around/ experimenting.

 

Oh btw, I am selling my HD681 F for $20, and HD668B for $30 local San Francisco pick up only. Both are in mint condition and I have the pads wrapped with that sock mod so comfort level is increased.  If anyone lives in SF and wants to buy these give me a PM.

with you on the semi open... they just breathe.  but in the studio we have to use the isolated cans...  so i had Rothermel do a driver motor mod adding a neo magnet to the rear...  and putting them in a 662 body... man somehow he tamed the highs, even made a 669 sound bright...  and the clean transparent mid s... this is one of my favorite headphones.  alto i do prefer open headphones, the 662 series are very useful, and the three sound stages really complement each other, no one leaves unhappy.  unlike the 681 series... where the 681 throws you on the ground and stomps on you, then the 681F flattens you out like a steamroller, and the 681B leaves you bewildered... of the three... the 681 is the bomb.   i find myself listing to the mod'd 681, & 662 ... most of all. and when i want to hear in naked vision... the 662F...  Cheers

how would you compare an unmodded 681 to a 668b?

The samson SR850 the diameter of ear pad must be: 4" (102mm) with opening 2.4" (60mm)

 

Here observe the beyerdynamic DT 990 ear pad on the HD668B:

These must work with HD668B, Imagewise, but i'm not sure:

If the Beyer pads fit the 668b they should also fit the HD660 which has a slightly smaller diameter then the 668b. I found these 660 velours so they should fit?

If someone would be kind of enough to buy these and try to fit them on their own 681/SR850/681/662 and share their experience before I buy them for my 668b which I should order in a few months.I would be very grateful :)

 

 

I also just noticed that the beyer velour pads on the 668b aren't on the right way. It looks like someone just glued/taped them on there.

The DT770 pads would be damaged on slightly larger HD681, but they probably fit the HD660 just fine. I'm assuming the DT990 pads aren't much different.

 

DT770 pads have a locking ledge that holds it on. The 681 stock pads are basically held on through elasticity.

That person makes pads for the HD681/668b... The people at Rock-Grotto don't really like that person's work. They say the HD681 pads were thinner than the stock pads.

Yeah. I saw them. He only has them in pleather and they are not deep enough. I think the Velour are better, though

 

I emailed him and I asked if he had any of the velour pads for the 662/668b and he said he would send me pictures of them within 24 hours. So maybe he will add them again soon?

the stock 681 has a lovely sub bass tone scooped mid's and tit_a_lactating highs...  and the 668B has a tight ass with really a good over all pleasure of listing ... & with a good head amp ... actually a quite pleasant headphone...  now a proper mod'ed 681 will leave them both on the side of the road crying Mommy...   go figure the new normal ... is not quite cracked up to the real deal...   ;~)      Cheers Doyen

Hmm. Kind of miss the low bass of my 681's and the super crazy highs.

 

But I want the fuller mids/less tinny sound of the 668b. Don't want to mod the 681's. I hate decisions.

It;s kind a funny... i have a few cans Roth Akoustics sent me... and one is 681 drivers in a closed 662 body... and it is the smoothest headphone i have ever heard... i'm listing to the re-cabled  669, 662, and the infamas 1st ed Roth mod of the 681...  and the 681 posing as a 662...  is the less bright of the bunch... go figure.  Cheers Audiohipster

Does anyone think they could filter mod or recable my 681's for me if I got another pair? I could pay.

Put an ad on Craigslist in your town. It like 1 Hr of work and 10 dollars of components.

HD660 are here, these things are so ridiculously good!

 

Sitting here considering selling my fostex.
