AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impression, Review & Appreciation Thread - Page 17

post #241 of 1003
Thread Starter 
I never said I knew without listening - I was quoting someone who has actually compared the 167 and 267, as well as people who had compared them to other headphones, and reiterating what they said.

I have no idea how much is true, but I assume they're not all lying. As for the K267 sound quality, we only have one comparison, so we have no idea how it compares to other headphones outside that.

I apologize if I confused anyone.

Also true. alpha10 has listened to the K267's and said that they have the same sound quality of the K167s, that what you pay for is build quality and a bit more bass. But we never know how properly burnt-in they were, since the K167's benefit strongly from burn-in IMO. But I guess SQ is very close, thats why he hasn't noticed any difference. I think the drivers are made of the same materials and have the same tweak. Only difference must be size (40mm vs 50mm). But then again, here we are speculating (based on some facts though).

Right, but there are lots of factors missing (source, burn-in, amping) and really, I just want to know how they compare to the K550. That's going to be the deal breaker for me. If they sound similar/better with a better fit then that's all I need to know to make a purchase. I really like the design, too I think they look really cool for a DJ headphone but what's important is the sound.

Most important of which is the K267......

^ haha

 

actually, though he was referring to someone that did apparently listen to the K267 next to the K167... could have been a early version too. Not final...

is there a difference in sound quality between a 3.5mm input or mini xlr input into the cups?
xlr allows for it to be truly balanced or im wrong?

Yeah I want to know how they compare to K550's as well. Plus I need them before Christmas so I need to find someone that is selling them if I choose the K267.

That's not going to happen, most likely. We've only heard of two places that have them in currently, one is in Denmark or something, and the other is only shipping them to the earlier pre-orderers. Other than that - the waiting time is around 3 - 4 weeks for anyone else, I believe.

of course, that is when you actually get them.

Yeah actually I think I am going to choose either K550 or K167 if there is no sound difference between K267 and K167 (except better bass maybe), what would you suggest?

The difference you'repaying for between the K167 and K267 is the build quality, more padding, adjustable bass, and possibly better sound. We know it has the first three, but we don't really know too much about how the sound compares, as only one person has tried them.
