From my 10 minutes with K267 I didn't them more bassy than K167, I would only buy the K267 if I wanted better build quality smily_headphones1.gif

Didn't (WHAT) them? Like them? Think they were? What? confused_face_2.gif

 

I'd love to know all the details about your time with the K267, as I've had mine on pre-order for a while, and as long as the sound is as good as the K167, they'll be a winner for me.

 How are the owners of the k 167 doing. Are there any more people with broken ones. I normally keep my stuff in perfect condition but am afraid that these will break too easily. Still wondering if it is worth buying and mostly waiting for the k 267, I surely want headphones that have more clear sound if k 167 are better in that matter than my mind is set.

I just heard both for 20-30 minutes each. The K67 is a very fun portable phone, kind of a refined Beats. Bass punches hard and reasonably deep, not in a very "hifi"-way, but it was fun even with very bass-heavy songs. Mids and Treble are solid and not completely drowned in the bass. For a home HP the bass would be too overbearing i think, also the on-ear design might be uncomfortable (it wasn't a problem in the short listening span).

The K167 on the other hand was like hifi-perfection to my ears, everything from Treble too deep bass was present and smoothly connected. I heard the M50 before that and these are just a step up in nearly every regard. M50 did nothing really wrong, but was a tad boring to me. The K167 had more athmosphere, more deep bass power and a wider soundstage. The "liquid" presentation was sometimes a little too perfect to me and i'd have liked a little more edge and a more aggressive bass. These were fresh out the box though and powered straight from my iphone.

Never found AKG cold and analytical. Clear and distinct, yes. I would describe the K167 in the same manner, and being NOT warm and colored, like that street gang of warm & fuzzy (Beats, Inspiration, M80, Momentum, UE6000 etc)

Not having any problems. They looked brittle at first but they are actually quite flexible. I am always somewhat careful and considerate when "operating" my headphones, though.

I would hope that the K267 are an improvement in terms of sound quality because £150 is a big premium to pay just for better build quality.

Beats is like shooting yourself in the ears compared to the K67 even. Now! They handle electronic and trance in an ungodly manner, and they are excellent performers with metal/rap.  They were able to handle a low-dub song I made that only handled well on real subwoofers because the way the frequencies were set, and I must say I was impressed with the result.

As for the iphone and ipod, it depends on generation. iPod touch 4th gen seems to be able to drive it un-amped without much of a difference, though the E11 does help. The nano however seems to be having a rough time so... thats all I can say with that. i4+ should be "ok"
Thanks! I just ordered the 7th gen nano for on the go use/workout and I have a 4g iPhone. I think they should play decently on both. I hope haha.

Can anyone comment on the portability of these cans?

Compared to my M-80 and Aurvana Live, I find the K167 more portable due to the 3D folding mechanism. For example, if I'm travelling with my stuffed notebook bag, there was never room for the M-80. Now, the K167 can fold really flat and fit perfectly into a compartment of my bag.

Thanks, that's very helpful, pretty much my situation.  Another point in favor of grabbing these and sending back the 990.
