The bass is more powerfull in the 681evo, but that also has something to do with extension, the 681evo goes noticeably deeper into the low frequencies than the 668b. The highs are somewhat lower in the 681evo, but that is a good thing because there is too much treble in the 668b. The 681evo has more neutral and more natural highs along with the fine balance in the mids.
Build quality is better with the 681evo, much better pads and a better headband.
There is no doubt in my mind, you should clearly go for the 681evo. (Not that the 668b is a bad headphone, the evo is just better in every way, that's all)

@Dafo 

Thank you for your comparizon. I've already rejected HD668B thanks to few nice reviews of Superlux family. Indeed I'm going to go most probably for the EVO but I am also weighing up HD681B now, because one guy here on the forum (@Natsukawa), who owns all Superluxes, said that 681B have slightly bigger sounstage and better instrument separation than EVO while smoother trebles unlike HD681. So I am a little bit confused which one to buy since I like EVO's design more and they sound phenomenally good for their price but still I can imagine that older one often overlooked 681B might be slightly better in terms of sound. Seems like I won't be able to choose one untill I test them in a market (when I have time for that).

You're welcome.

It is always a good idea to listen to a headphone before a purchase and even better if you have the opportunity to compare them with others when listening. Happy listenings when you get the time :-)

(Keep in mind there is another small plus in favor of the 681evo and that is the detachable cables and the extra velour pads...)

Thanks:-)

Well I guess my local music shop which sells these HPs has also velour pads in their sortiment, so final price would be same as EVO's one. But yes, detachable calble is really practical. I will weigh it up.

Just now 30 hrs into burning in my new 681 Evo Version IIs and thought I'd ask if there anyone is aware of someone with these Evo's who has elected not to modify them. If so, how are they? I am quite happy with them at the moment, but they are still burning in. Obviously, they are bass-heavy and perhaps a bit recessed in the mids and treble (to me). Is that what others have experienced with the un-modified Evo? I am not very good with my hands and am worried I'll trash them if I do these mods. Any thoughts are much appreciated.

I think i want to use some modified connector cable to evo, maybe can help tightened bass sector a little bit

Have you done this yourself on an Evo, or are you just considering it?

just considering, some of my friend suggest me to use silver cable to reduce its boomyness of bass

Thanks a lot. I may try it. Seems like someone else here recommended oxygen-free copper. I am not a cable expert myself.
