For me, personally, the E11 sounds much better than the ZO2.3. There's more micro-detail and the bass is tighter and without any distortion. I can just conceive the ZO2.3 pluggged to the E11 (dual amping), never alone. It just doesn't sound good to me.

Yes, it does, IMO.

 

And thanks for another recommendation (Beats). I'm really loving this genre ; )

Maybe RPG can chime in about the ZO?

Yes, the K267's will cost around 400 euros here in Europe and the K167s cost 230 euros. I'm selling them for 170 euros. For a fraction of the cost of the K267s you can try my K167s, this is correct :D

WOAH HOLD ON!  This is not good AKG.  That crack led to the whole left side falling off with only the cable holding it. >:(

The fastest record of me breaking headphones - less than a week.

Build quality - 0 points

When will headphone makers learn that thin plastic hinges will break.

Well, mine's great and I don't see it breaking anytime soon. Sorry about yours though.

We can rebuild.  JK, I'm not sure how I'm going to fix this.

I sent those pics to AKG.

 

Also just talked to my sis and my sister broke her AKG K618 in the same spot, but above it.  She glued it back.

Maybe some series, or just that one. Mine seems rock solid.

Fixed :) haha.

First tape under the ..the...thing really tight a few layers..  Then go over it to hold the tape in place.  Then under, then over a few more times.

Probably should use electrical tape to be more covert, but electrical tape stretches and masking tape doesn't.


It can no longer fold flat.  Not that it folded flat around your neck in the first place.

But now you are going to fix that with black tape, right?. Congrats though tongue.gif
 

post #312 of 1488

haha, I didn't have any.  I think electrical tape would flex too much when you pull the earcups apart.  With masking tape it holds it's shape.

Dang, that sucks >_> I hope the k267s have better build quality.

They will, all aluminium.

Wouldn't be so quick to assume that the K167 doesn't have good build quality. This is only one person. Not that i'm
trying to downplay the possibility, but it's obvious PFULMTL has hands of steel.
