Also watching a auction for a pair of HD668Bs.  May pull the trigger on them this weekend too.


My HD 681s arrived in the mail today.  Cheesy packaging (shrink wrap) but I can't believe what I am listening to !!!!!! 

 

Really?  I only paid $25 for these cans?  I can't believe I only paid $25 for these headphones !!  Very pleased with the SQ.

 

Sorry for bumping my own post but if you have been hesitate about buying a set of these headphones, you really should go ahead and pull the trigger before everyone realizes what a fantastic bargain these guys are and the price starts to go up.

Just finished another wooden filter box (mkII):

I hope user Foscot will be happy with it :)

 

 

With filter + custom angled pads + custom recabling these cans sound amazing! I actually prefer my modded HD-681 over Fidelio X1`s when I want to listen analytically. HD-681 has great wide imaging and separation but lacks little in depth towards front. Luckily, Aune T1 with different tubes makes it better. Some say that HD-681B version has better depth towards front but I have no real experience (yet) to confirm it. When tube rolling is out of option, I actually find my modified HD-681 better for rock/metal/progressive genres than X1.
