Initial impressions are bright and detailed sound.
Soundstage not close like my daily used s400, yet not far either,
Highs and bass are closer than mids.
Very clean type sound.
Bass goes deep but also seems very neutral compared to what I used to.
Wishing for more bass impact but just my first hour so for now I will EQ
Size seems in athm50 range, but more portable.
I may try the smaller 67 for portability, if they have this sound.
Funny some songs are just unimpressive now ,
Yet some other songs I play are shocking impressive sounding and amazing.
Overall very enjoyable and I would choose these any day over the ath m50 I had, as these k167 have bigger soundstage. While m50 sound great all around, but somewhat "flatter" or less 3-dimensional
And less slightly detailed in terms of soundstage imaging, compared to these k167.
Yet remember both are still above average, excellent sounding all around cans.
I only using m50 as a reference point to compare yet I would never walk around with the m50 as they look too big on my head yet these are nice and dont look out of place due to low profile headband.
I still have yet to compare to the m100 but from memory those are more juicy sounding while these have more of an accurate monitor sound..
Edit: Forgot 2 mention how cool they look !
Very nice professional look and headband very low profile
Side note: The fit and finish is very nice but they do not look as strong or solid as the heavyer athm50 do.
Thats ok they are lighter.
I have medium sized ears and did notice one ear slightly touched inside surface so these pads may be shallow for some users.Edited by Maxx134 - 12/29/12 at 9:27am
