`They sound good at first, but after many hours of burn-in they begin to shine. Sound integrates, bass comes up, lo-mid-hi lobing of everything disappears and instruments sound more realistic. Really good on jazz, vocals and classical.

Mine did not settle in for at least 3 months if not more.

I expect the other SuperLux models would respond the same. They need long burn-in, and they respond well to upgraded ODAC's, cabling, and such.

The removable jack on the left earphone is a nice touch, 2.5mm female plugs into the headphones. The cable is a bit thin and cheap feeling, but there's no problems I have with it sound wise or durability wise so far.

 

keanex,

 

Could you please tell me if the removable jack is 2,5mm or 3,5mm?

The end that plugs into the headphones are 2.5mm, the other end that plugs into your source or amp is 3.5mm.

No, the end plug into the headphones are actually 3.5 mm. He just made an error, unless the ones he has are actually 2.5 mm. Mine are definitely 3.5 mm.

3.5 mm, obviously. Just a typing error...

Yeah 3.5mm on both ends, whoops!

I'm planning on buying these headphones, and have just one question - how isolating are they if at all?

post #129 of 132

they are semi-open and they do isolate a tiny bit.

Just a little isolation. Other SL are more open and can be heard in the next room, but the 668b have some isolation - but they are semi-open so library listening probably not possible.

I just received mines today. All I can say is WOW!!! Synergizes well with my C3 and C&C BH amp. Waiting for my velour pads to arrive.
