AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impressions & Review Thread - Page 3

post #31 of 1008
Thread Starter 
I ended up keeping my order, so no problem. I am looking forward to these more than I was for my M-100's. I did a little chart listing out the positives, negatives, and other notes for the K267's, M-100's, and my previous ATH-M50, and as long as the AKG has better sound than my Audio Technica ATH-M50's on at least one of its settings, in good with it.

Gaaaah, December can't come fast enough.

remember though premium material doesnt necessarily mean premium build quality

sort of like smartphones my parents own, one is a htc with metal body, other is a samsung with plastic body
the htc phone is crap in the build quality department- i rather take the plastic any day

i am excited for the akg though!
looking at the posted pre orders, $350 is not too bad

That's only if you live overseas. US peeps can get them for circa $300

I'd love to see where you got that price. I got them at around $310 after a 10% off coupon at Front End Audio.

Nice - I will see if I can get a price match for my current order.

That sounds VERY promissing. Perhaps these are indeed based on K550's sound (same drivers?) tweaked to provide more bass. While the cups are quite different it's still relatively similar in the sense it's round and rather shallow.

I like that news too - but the K267's use an adjustable bass chamber, as well as 50mm (2") drivers, rather than the K167's 40mm drivers. If anything, the K267 uses the exact same driver as the K550's, and the K167 just sounds better.

 

Either way, it's promising.

Would these be any good using a fairly good portable source (one x)

I auditioned them with my Voodooed Galaxy S. Volume was fine. Got a great sound out of that with these hp's.

I have to ask - how was the build quality of the K167 vs. the K550? I assume the K267 will be better than that, since it's heavier, uses aluminium, and more padded.
