Possibly read about those first if you can't audition.  The bass is completely different from most cans and the midrange is very forward.  I do like them myself but I can see why it would turn off some people.

Does anybody feel same  K-267 headband hurts after 10-30min?  it looks it have very thick padding but it piss in your eye mad.gif i have tested them now allmost week. 2 bad things i found that headband and it just need more bass punch

post #738 of 1007

Yes, I find it hurting after a while. So far, I have found nothing to alleviate the issue.

 

I think it lacks bass extension rather than bass punch, but to each their own.

Dealbreakers for me.

Do you think that these headphones will come down in price like the K167s? If they do, they could actually become a something of a good by.

I believe yall, but can't picture how that that headband hurts. It looks so thick.

Guess its the M100s for me.

+1 as sq was ok for a $115 HP and I have a smallish head being a gal and all.

I have a relatively small head for a guy (55cm, around 21 and a half inches), so I don't think its gonna be a problem for me. I'd probably be testing the ATH-M50 and MDR-1R to see which fits my taste now. The K267 seems to be having some problems despite the delays. I would've got the K550s if it wasn't for the seal issues.

People shouldn't be so quick to judge based on a handful of reviews.  Who knows what other headphones the people that have the K267's own.  It's very possible that many of you might miss out on something that actually is a good headphone.  

 

As for a quick comparison with the M100, the K267's lack the thickness of the M100's.  Mainly in the mid-bass region.  The biggest difference between the two is bass.  The M100's reach just as deep as the K267's but packs a bigger punch and it leaks into the mid-bass region where the K267's don't.  Treble isn't far off from each other but the K267's sound cleaner and airier to me.  Midrange is also not far off from each other but the K267's are slightly more forward and is thinner sounding.  Females vocals render better with the K267's but the M100's adds more to male vocals.  Stage wise, both are really good but the M100's are more of 3D and K267's are wider.  For me, both are keepers in the sound department so far.

This guy. To sum it up in short, I'd say that the K*67 is more suited for studio applications (I find it to be fairly neutral) while I would probably prefer the M-100 (from what I recall) for pleasure listening.

It does look glued and also very cheap looking also.

Sounds like a pretty good sum up.  I'd think the M100's would do much better out in public in regards to sound and form.

I can't believe the logo is glued on. My K167 aren't glued. In fact they are a plastic pinned on. Kinda hard to get off, actually.

Yes, glued.. This is how they were out of box and why ill be returning them. Sounded ok as burn time went up but can't justify the quality.

Seems like the K267 isn't much of an upgrade over the K167. From what I've read I'm really glad I cancelled the order and got the K167 instead. I saved at least a hundred bucks and got an arguably better headphone for my purposes.

I mean... seriously? Who puts any headphone, much less a portable headphone, together with GLUEtriportsad.gif

For a headphone that costs $350 retail, this is inexcusable and AKG (or rather, their evil overlords Harman) should be ashamed.
