AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impressions & Review Thread - Page 2

post #16 of 1012

Well i hope this is advertised correctly and not another fail like any other celeberity endoresed audio gear which most of the time fails except for certain exceptions of course.

*sigh* Noticed this same series of constant delays and lack of stock with the K618/K619 and the K702 ANV...

Agreed.. I guess I'll just have to wait though - though with that release date, I don't expect to get them before the new year anymore...

That seems like a pretty bad move on AKG's part. With the flood of new $300 cans, particularly one's with significantly more fanfare, Tiesto's are probably gonna suffer. Any business major's disagree?

Subscribed, and also very interested to read a comparison with the K550, which I love but I hope the K267 has a tighter fit for my small head.

I just hope it releases before 2013!

im looking at these or the vmoda revolvers (seems like an impossible wait haha) as my next step up as they both fold flat and therefore more "portable" for me

these better be good as a quick google search revealed they are going to be priced at around 329 pounds to around $525 smackers eek.gif

I had a chance to directly compare the 167's with the 550's and the 167's sounded like the 550's with more (better?) bass. If you like the the 550's but think they sound too bass light , then the 167's and possibly the 267's will be for you.

Now that's making me regret cancelling my order for the 267's... Eh - I rather wait until they're ACTUALLY out, rather than suffer through more delays with my money already paid out. AKG messed up on the timing for these.

I just ordered them from JRRshop.com, and there was nothing on their site to indicate that it wasn't in stock. I'm waiting for them to reply to my email, I'll let you know as soon as I hear. I hope the 267's don't make me look like Princess Leia like a lot of other 50mm cans jecklinsmile.gif.

Both Front End Audio and B&H list that the K267 won't be arriving until December :x Not to crush your hope, but just keep your finger crossed xD

How was the fit? My main concern is it having a tighter clamp for a better fit than the K550. I have a smallish head and seal is the big issue with my K550.

Just got the reply from Jrrshop- they said it should arrive early december, so if you order, you should get them before Xmas (if you're in the US). I probably won't though.
