3) Would you go out with your @^& or is it to fragile and vulnerable to travel with it?

 

4) i want to buy a case for this headphone wfor when i travel/. The poouch is pretty useless IMO. Any suggestions?. Price is important so thinking on DX, EBAY or Aliexpress stuff.

I repurchased that cable when I repurchased the headphone, it has however not arrived yet. From memory I would say the sound was more in line with the stock cables, whereas this cable: http://highertasteproject.com/shop/index.php?id_product=101&controller=product seems a hair brighter and energetic in sound. (But has no remote, but still shorter and less bulky than the stock studio and coiled cable).

 

Didn't A/B much. In general I think the cable makes little difference, I will test when it arrives.

 

I don't know if it works with iPhone, I don't have one. It says it does.

 

Yeah I think you can go travelling with it.

 

For a case it is probably best to lay it flat like this:

 

 

I only fold it like this for the neopren bag:

 

 

Because if you fold it in to the compact shape like this:

 

 

then the top earpad get squashed and is really pressed flat if you leave it like that for a day:

 

 

dunno which case fits. I think the included pouch is enough, if you pack it wisely in a duffel bag for air travel paded with clothes and whatnot.

 

In a backpack I would be careful not to pack it too tightly, and not through the backpack around.

Has anyone tried to put Mr Speakers Alpha Pads on their K267?  Wondering if they would fit.

I did, but I don't remember the result. I know it's either they didn't fit (most likely), or they sounded terrible.

Looks like the K67 and K167 is being re-released with no Tiesto branding. I wonder if they will do the same for K267. Would definitely end the debate over latest batch in terms of build quality.

The AKG K267 has amazing value right now if you can score it on Massdrop. I recently auditioned the JH Audio Angie Universal IEM. I must say that, with Angie's Bass Pots set at 12 o'clock they sound almost exactly like the K267's bass set in Studio Mode. $1,099.00 sound for $130.00....there, I said it.

Yeah, it's really nice.  I've had it for a while now and it was worth the $167 I paid.

It seems like all the Tiesto headphones are discontinued, including AKG K267 - http://www.akg.com/pro/p/k267tiesto . That's probably the reason why there are so many cheep drops on Massdrop - AKG has been clearing their storehouses.
