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?

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 501

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
