AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impressions & Review Thread - Page 65

post #961 of 1008

Ok, I find the 750 pads on this thread, but how do I remove the ear pads from k267? never did this before :)

never mind, I just need to pull it off, but then I noticed the 750dj ead pad was tested to fit on k167, does k267 share the same fit?

Hello,

 

yet again another pair of K267 is about to brake. The first one broke after a month of everyday use, after a month they replaced it and now after 3 months and no more than 50-60 hours of use there are 2 small fractures just above the left hinge.

 

The AKG by Tiesto headphones are not so high quality as AKG is saying, also my K81 are experiencing 10 times the abuse that K267 experienced and are still like new.

you wanna share some photo of the fracture?

I am trying on some self-setting removable rubber that is being advertised to reinforce plastic, so I would know where is the weakest point of the headband.

Here is a picture http://sdrv.ms/1beoOsF

If you look closely you can see 3 small fractures.

I noticed marks right where the aluminum hinge presses on the headphone, maybe this little crack makes the headband lose strength and easier to break? Anyways, I put some rubber coating right where the hinge touch the headband, hopefully it will disperse the pressure a little bit, and I did stretch out the headphone using the thick part of the headband, now I have them for 2 weeks with average usage of 5 hrs everyday, and it is still holding up

I really hope this will work for you. I bought the K267 together with a friend of mine his are still OK no fractures or anything. I suppose the fact that I has a big head is creating more tension on that spot. I have contacted AKG and now I am expecting answer from them. I really hope for all aluminum construction.

Seem's like the plastic is breaking at its mounting point.

I have mine for 3 weeks, nothing like that showed up.

Is this normal? I think the clamping force stresses the screw inside there or whatever it is thats holding it together.

Also; the paint comes off.


Do you use the cans for practical DJ or just for casual listening?

I think the major problem is not the hinge, it is the cheap plastic headband that would probably break in couple months, mine broke like the others after 2 months I bought it
