This thread is a hoot-and-a-half. Guess I won't know how the K267 compares to the K550 till well into next year.

 

Early reviews = FAIL.

I'll probably end up cancelling my pre-order - I'm fine with my ATH-M50's until I find something that matches my needs a bit more. If that turns out to be the K267's once more reviews roll in, I'll get them then, but this is just too confusing.

 

Oh well, here's hoping they do well.

Who actually has the K267 in hand?  A production version?

Eddy Flycatcher owns them, and Alpha10 has tried them for a short while. I believe one or two other people own them as well, but I can't remember the names at present.

Some dude whose name started with a C. He said he would answer any questions people wanted to know, and I haven't seen him since.

i'll add more details tomorrow, need to listen a couple of hours to have a good verdict, (it's amazing so far!)

 

hello Cp, I'd appreciate it if you could add more details before the end of the world. wink.gif

How did they get them headphones?

Did AKG release them on different countries already? I saw AMS put an estimate for mid January or so...

post #458 of 1011

They were released in Austria or so, not sure. 400 euros. lol.

Hi alpha10 and Eddy Flycatcher, I hope you guys are still watching this thread. 

 

 

first alpha10 posted this:

[...] the sound is similar as K167, not the same.
But the isolation is obvious, and definately a deal breaker for me, [...] build quality is nice, but I'm sure my K167 will last, I always take good care of my stuff.

 

 

then Eddy posted this:

Funny enough all problems seem trivial compared to the sound, [...] and I must say I have never heard a headphone perform so good smile.gif

 

 

I have 2 short questions:

 

1. same issue with slightly recessed mids as K167? 

2. suitable for portable use? (thinking of leak)

1. I don't think the mids are recessed at all on the K167.
2. Yes, but they don't isolate as well as the K167.

Mids are not recessed, but in my opinion are not perfect either, just need a bit of EQ to get spot on as say a Westone UM3X, if you know these.

that's good to know, because someone here claims that the K267 doesn't isolate at all! 

btw, does build quality alone explain the price difference?  I'd expect something more for the money.

Well - since the information we're getting is scarce beyond explanation, I've gone ahead and emailed to have my order cancelled. 

 

If it turns out these are right for me, I'll get 'em, but otherwise, I rather not take the risk.
