[Review] Superlux HD681 EVO - Page 27

post #391 of 522

You won't be disappointed. 

 

Make sure to let it burn in a bit, a lot of things settle down in the first few hours and the sound improves.

 

Cheers,

thanks. I've just seen they were planning on releasing the 685S, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to just wait the reviews on those for now :)

Yes indeed. I guess that's going to be a really good one. From what we know from Superlux it will be a lot of sound quality for rock bottom prices. However, I assume this will be more in the $99 range at the least. (with in-line mic, foldable etc. "high definition").

 

Cheers,

K

Koolpep, if not disturb, you can tell me if superlux hd381 evo is better than siberia v2 steel series? or siberia is better than superlux?

post #395 of 522

I'm pretty sure the superlux are better sound wise but avoid siberia v2 or any recent steelseries headset for that matter imo i had a siberia v1 for years it was solid and great sound v2 had neutral sound but terrible quality one hearphone went off one day same with the 5hv2 both were taken care of and only lasted 6 months its the reason i'm going to go for superlux now and am avoiding gaming pseudo-headphones

you already have the superlux? found some advance?

post #397 of 522

No I don't, that's why I didn't judge the sound quality, but they have a way larger frequency range than steelseries headsets which will make for better sound quality in game. With the latest siberia and 5hv2 I really had issues spotting little sounds, might be because I got older but I think headsets had to do with it.

Sorry, can't help. Never heard any Siberia headsets.

All of the SuperLux have the same earpads and cup designs for each 'family'. The 662/669 have thicker, deeper pads with smaller openings than the 681/668.

The EVO, I don't have, appear to be different pads from both.

The PreSonus HD7 (681 Burgundy Ring Classic OEM) have a *slight* upgrade in the pads that are more comfortable, same size and dimensions as the 681/668 but the quality of the material is higher.

I ordered several velour pads and thinner foam screens to replace on my SL 681/668, they feel much better and change the sound usually for the better. Tames the treble, slight bass extension, 5mm deeper than stock.

I do not have any issues with head size or ear size or fit over the ear or cups or pads with any of my phones - that's not anything I critique on new hps. You may want another opinion from someone who is more concerned with that aspect.

Ok so I'm most likely getting the evo (yep, still didnt buy! haha) but the lack of adjustment possibility is really scaring me. I have quite a big head, could it be too short for my skull? I wouldn't like my headphones to land halfway on my ears.

post #401 of 522

where i can buy superlux evo?

post #402 of 522

I'm in europe and buying those from Thomann.de

post #403 of 522

Im also considering bying the EVO's,but i have few questions.

 

Do they compare to the Sennheiser HD 202's in terms of sound quality?
And are all those mods really necessary?If the stock cable is that bad,what other cable should i get?

And that other mod angling the drivers,how is that done?Got so many questions after reading this thread,damn. :D

I just don't want to buy them,and go look for a new pair in 2 or 3 months.

post #404 of 522

from all the reviews I have seen online these are way better than the sennheiser. also as far as the modding goes the most effective change Ive seen was that little circle of tissue in the center of each pad being removed for higher trebles and close to the original 681 result but I don't think it's a smart idea to do mods like that tbh D:

post #405 of 522

Yeah,ill get them tomorrow.I don't want to do any mods,but i guess i will buy a spare cable at least.
