AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impression, Review & Appreciation Thread - Page 9

post #121 of 1007

I suppose this will be my introduction to the forum.  I have been very intrigued by these and will be watching closely.  The one thing that I do want to point out to people that are concerned about these potentially being bass heavy is that we need to consider the fact that these are being designed with DJs in mind.  Should there be more bass than most audiophiles expect out of a "good" set of headphones...well, it's most likely because that was the intention.  So for those that will be reviewing these, I hope that all things are considered.

Theres a switch with 3 levels of bass, being one of them, neutral.

got the 550 and very happy with it but waiting for a comparisson review cuzz as allready stated by several others, this headphone is  bass shy. if the 267 has more (controlled) bass its gonne be a winner (also uberlove the looks) :)

To say that we already know exactly what each mode will provide is hasty at best.  What one manufacturer claims to be flat varies from the next.  We just have to wait until it is released.  My main point is that these headphones are built with a specific application in mind and that we shouldn't let that go unacknowledged.

I disagree. I think these will have the versatility to have several applications in mind.

I sure hope so myself.  I own V-Moda Crossfade LP2s and I have been happy with them but after a while of using them for DJing I have realized that, while the sound is great for DJing, I really want a set with rotating cups.  With these coming to the market soon, I am waiting for a bit before I make a purchase.  If they kill it and produce something truly special in that I can use them for a multitude of applications, what a gift these will be.

I really hope these don't turn out to be another pair of Beyer Custom Ones.

I think he means they have three-way bass adjustment as well.

I own the Custom Ones and the bass knobs are no gimmick.  They work very well.  I do like the sound but I'm hoping and expecting the AKG's to be superior in sound.

In on this.  Will order one as soon as it becomes available.

yes its bass shy, good for bass-less songs

Really? I heard the Custom One Pro was kind of bad. Tyll apparently didn't even like them enough to give them a full review.

That means nothing. There are a lot of Beyer fans that would eat you alive for that, lol. tongue.gif But, I've always loved the AKG house sound better than Beyer so the added cost will be worth it. Plus the K267 looks way sexier, anyway...

The page with all of the good info is down, leaving only AKG's crappy press page. Why is this?
