Sure. Mic quality is better than logitech hs-390 headset (not usb). It's out of stock atm but you should find more sellers with same mic.

Thanks - I just remembered that I'd done exactly this before, I just ended up fishing out the mic from my old headphones and using that, all sorted perfectly now, pretty much exactly as your pic.

Semi-related question:
Any ideas on where I should begin to look to get the headphones working for my phone, with a mic in-cable? For some reason my phone likes to turn on noise cancellation when I plug in my headphones, and that would be fine if I was close mic'd, but it doesn't work for the onboard mic.
Also, if I'm out and about I dislike having to hold my phone up even when I have headphones on!

I already have HD-681 EVO and HD-660, now considering a third pair of superlux headphones. Am I correct thinking that 681s would be fun with funk, hip-hop and other types of music with a bit of bass?

Or the 668B.

I would buy them both, but I'm still not head-fier enough to justify an army of Superluxes in my tiny flat. :D

You should at least read the reviews on all the Superluxes before pulling the trigger. I have the 668B's because of the reviews.

Just sayin

HD681 is better than EVO or HD660. More neutral but strong bass. Also treble is more vivid.

After more reading, I'll probably choose the 668B. 681 is only ~20€ so I will buy them later if I feel so.

Which one of these has the biggest soundstage? I currently own AKG K240 studios... Any of these have a bigger soundstage? It needs to cost 40$ or less.
post #880 of 981

What do You mean about biggest soundstage? Superluxes have great width and separation but lack littlebit in depth towards front imo. According to some comments and impressions HD-681B version should have littlebit more frontal depth.

Ok. I'd like to have a comparison to akg k240 soundstage tho.

It's funny as soon as I saw this thread on the front page just now I was wondering the same thing.

 

How do the 681s/681 EVO compare to a K240S? The former is semi-open but isn't the EVO closed? They look closed from the pics.

http://www.hd681.com/ it seems to be semi-open...

681 "series" yet they picture both the EVO and the original there. Shrug.

 

I expect a better-than-closed soundstage but all I've really heard about the 681 is that they are treble cannons without EQ.

that sounds right. I've read multiple reviews say they are very bright.
