The bass boost feature on K181 DJ was superb. They went from 'nice bass' to 'holy ****' bass.

I'm assuming that means you have the K267 in your possession?

No, no, it was a reply to TranceDude :P (since they are great news about the bass boost feature)

I wish - mine should be coming in the next 1 - 2 weeks.

Biggest thing I want to find out is if these are better than V-Moda Crossfade M-100's. If they're even close to that, while being a better sound signature for me, I'm in.  (This would mean similar treble, more aggressive mid-range if possible, "as good" bass punch, but without the width, better comfort.. etc)

 

Out of curiosity, do people think the cups of the K267 will be smaller than the K550/551 cups? Or the same size? if they're the same size, they're going to have issues with seal. On that note, I wonder if the 50mm driver used in the K267's is the same one as the K550's? If so, and it just has better bass, these may be the headphones for me...

 

Ahh, so excited! The site says late October launch, so launch already!deadhorse.gif

When I get the K267 I will put up a David Guetta MIXR vs. Tiesto video.  Fight!

I really don't think the mixr even deserves to be compared to any AKG headphone.

There's no harm in it. In every comparison I've seen involving any Beats to other brands results in a very nice Beats-Bashing. Besides, the Mixr's are supposed to be decent in the Beats by Dre line, no?

Well, from what I've heard, the mixr is one of - if not the - worst sounding headphones in the beats line up. That's on top of the comfort issues I've heard about them.

 

Either way, I'd love to get impressions from you HifiGuy, assuming you get yours before me.

Yeah I thought the Mixrs took the unnaturalness I kind of liked in the Pros and turned it up to 11. It's really, really funky sounding to the point where it's gross.

 

I wonder how the sound finagling works on them. The switches don't seem to create a bass port like they do with the K181. The K181's bass switch actually makes me laugh because they're already pretty bassy without the port, but with it open, it gets to Beats level impact but with a midrange.

Wait a second. This picture doesn't have the glittery accents on the side. This looks classy. :D
