I've noted such issues with other single cup entry headphones.  Not with the EVO - or, at least not noted.  The conductors in the stock cables actually surprised me a bit.  They were of better quality than the hairline thin wires in some of the Sennheiser headphones I've owned.  But, with the longer cable that was included, I did suffer the fate of one of the cable ends not lasting too long.  I had a conductor break at the strain relief area of the cable.  To me, this is one of the weakest areas for the Evos.

I use the HD-202 II as a pair of headphones for cable testing, etc.  Not as much for listening for an extended period.  My pair has SMC connectors as a modification - again, for cable testing.

 

The Evo is a better headphone, in my opinion as the 202 falls a bit short on delivery.  For the price, the 202 did surprise me a bit.   However, the 681 Evo surprised me a bit more.

 

They're not used as a headphone for analytic listening though - they suit my needs as a quick grab headphone when I have a period of time to listen to some music for about 30 minutes at a time.  Their lower cost removes any guilt from me as the $500 headphones I have tend to really make one try their hardest to take care of them.  The Evos, not as much.  If they get tossed around a bit, I don't feel bad because at their price, they're basically an economical and recyclable pair of headphones.

Hi,
My ear is 6.5 cm in length, will it all fit inside the earcup?

given the h681 description about its sound, how would the hd669 sound in comparison?

post #500 of 504

GUYS... i currently have the hd668b

 

is it worth it going to these or should i get the m50? price drop is quite good

post #501 of 504

I have both and I prefer the 668b. I like a more neutral SQ over the accentuated bass of the EVO. I did do a mod similar to the foam mod on the EVO and it helps. I removed the foam\felt piece over the center of the driver and replaced it with a thin cotton make-up thingy my wife uses. It brought the highs out a little more and evened off the sound a bit. The EVO is still bassy though and I use them more for "fun" listening rather than critical listening. They are good with metal and heavier music while the 668b is fine for most genres. The 668b can be a little strident some times with its treble depending on the recording. They do scale up really well though. IMHO

Hi, I just had evo for couple week and had trying to use the 'free' extra velvet pad included by superlux, but my ears got contrary feel from what others member experience here smily_headphones1.gif the bass is a little controled but also make the mid and high feels more sibilance or like metalic, plus I can't feel the power of double pedal kicking with my metal song, but its not good with dj music which give too much kicking. can anyone advise how to reduce the bass without affecting the double pedal power on bass line ? Sorry my english tongue.gif

edit: has anyone did remove the the acoustic damper in hd681 evo? what would happen if I did that?

Acoustic damper it's the sticker that says "do not remove" in front of the driver? 

 

You could try some 15-band eq (I have one in my MusicBee player) to eq the bass it has 32hz, 50hz, 80hz and 125hz settings and see if you can lower any of those without affecting the double bass too much? Or try increasing some 100hz punch while using the velour pads.

yea, that white paper around small black felt disk which had 6 holes on evo, I read on some site removing it with another thin cloth could make the bass more thick but its ireversible and I dont (like) eq-ing my player smily_headphones1.gif
