How long will it be for Skrillex to endorse a pair of hp's? What do you guys reckon he would go for?

I'm thinking Ultrasone... or maybe Beyerdynamic? biggrin.gif

I dunno mate, he's got a lot of mid-range "bass" going on in his music.

Opened the AKG K267 appreciation thread. Considering they are being shipped out this week to retailers.

Dang brother canuck, I'll be subscribing and awaiting your impressions. popcorn.gif

 

C'mon AKG, you still have enough left in you to make a decent mid tier headphone. Please don't screw it up.

IMO, the high-end basshead can competition will come down to K267 vs. Ultrasone Signature DJ based on upcoming impressions (cost difference aside- $349 vs. $699).

Where do you see the Ultrasone Signature DJ listed as $699? Everywhere I look, it's listed as $999 or $1199.

It's gonna be exciting to see if the k267 stack up well vs the m-100 and mdr-1r in sound, comfort, and portability. Has there been any more serious in-depth reviews of the MDR's yet besides anak's?

Got 20 minutes with the 2 smaller models: AKG K67 and AKG K167.

Both were brand new and not burned-in playing lossless files non-amped from an iPod Touch 4G, so take this into consideration.

The short version is that I'm impressed with the build quality and sound of both, isolation is also good, specially the K167, both are easy to drive, no problems playing loud using iPod only.

They have the same sound signature, a little dark with rolled off highs, but not too dark for my taste smily_headphones1.gif

The K67 is definately much smaller than K167, the sound is good, nice extension at both ends, the bass is boosted a little, but I'm sure many will like that, for me personally I think it's a little too much. The K67 is an on-ear design and the fit is tight, I would definately recommend that you try them before buy.

The K167 is worth the extra price, much more comfortable, the headphone is bigger but still foldable, and the sound is improved in all areas, the sound is more neutral, the bass is just right, very deep but controlled and not boosted, I would say the bass is better than my Denon AH-D2000, the sound is darker than my Denon's, but it's a fair trade, since many recordings are just a tad too bright and this compensates for that, unlike the K67, the K167 doesn't sound like a DJ headphone at all, I've tried classical, jazz, rock, pop, and it played everything very well, really among the best closed can I've heard, imagine my Denons with an improved bass and a darker sound signature, that would be a way to describe the K167.

Thanks Alpha.  How is the fit of the K167?
