AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impressions & Review Thread - Page 68

post #1006 of 1072

Yes imo, as a non fatiguing DJ headphone M100 might be better. M100 sounds clean, but K267 sounds clearer.

 

EDIT: after more listening I would say that M100 actually has more peaks and sounds a bit glitzy.

 

But for portable I think I will use M100 more.

Can anyone verify that recently-purchased Tiesto headphones have more durable hinges?

 

Yes Harman did make changes to the plastic on the headband. AKG's distributor in China had confirmed that the ingredients the manufactures put into the old material was different from Harman's original "recipe". They've corrected it. This applies to K67, K167, K267 and K540, etc.

 

Since I'm living in the states I emailed AKG's tech support in USA and they also confirmed it.

Hello,

 

I do not know if you have checked back in the thread but  I mentioned that I got my third pair of K267 from the new revision with better plastic and so far almost a year later with roughly 20-25 hours of usage per week sometimes more they are perfectly fine.

I've been told that the difference between the new version and the old relates to the serial number.

The serial number should be UT3474-00xxxx.

A friend of mine bought a new version k267, and the serial number is UT3474-008xxx. So I guess the serial number smaller than 8xxx may be the old version.

So what is your serial number?

I might return my M-100 to get these. I've been pretty mad about the M-100s lately because they're failing the durability test (already two damaged pieces on my unit for no good reason),

and they fit my ears very poorly. It's a shame because they sound so good and the fact that I was one of the early supporters, but they really just don't work for me.

Has anybody tried the k167 vs k267? I would like to know if K267 has the same treble's detail.
?

I like that a lot. Was it custom or off the shelf from somewhere?

Sounds the same to me.

I got mine since March, and I've travel in 8 planes to different countries, and other several times compressed in my backpack in the car and in my motorcycle topcase doing 330 miles per ride, and they don't have any sign of wear, except in 1 pad, but it was my fault.

 

Very happy until now with them, and they sound great with the Fiio X3

When they shipped that new series with fixed things. My retailer say that they have in stock these  and they came summer. So is that the new series?

post #1020 of 1072

I got UT3474-007 and also has fixed hinges. You can identify it by gently moving your finger over the bottom half of the plastic inner hinge, you can feel a bump in the middle, those are the new ones IMO. It is very subtle but you can feel it.
