I wish I knew. The K167 is twice the price of the K618dj.
Going by AKG's past, probably a funked out color (hopefully orange this time), and his name on the cans.
Yeah right? In fact an orange/grey/white combo would be outstanding (not unlike your midi controller).
I had to, it's a xmas present for my son. I didn't want to pay an inflated prices if it stays sold out.
Also, I recently bought a WS55 for cheap on Amazon.
Listening to the K619 right now.
Definitely a bass heavy can. They are also very crisp though. Mid-range is fairly well-defined as well. Not going to win any accuracy contests, but they are pretty fun to listen to. They seem to be pretty well made, especially at this price point. Clamping force is a little harsh. I will report back on long-wear comfort later, though the ear pads do a decent job dissipating the pressure. One odd thing. I have to fully extend the adjustable headband to fit my head. Never had to with any other headphone, so this leads me to believe some may find these to be too small.
I will say that build quality is much better than the K81. That's not really hard though...
EDIT: Literally just tried on a set of K81's. Exact same thing. Had to fully extend to fit my head. Weird.
