your head looks longish....can u try to shorten it by an inch??
which model is yours?? the headfone i meant...looks diff from mine.
Maybe a number 0 haircut. No model number visible on the headphones only "Superlux", and "HD681 EVO". I will take a look on the box at home maybe...
I will likely use a lighter rubber band to the ones in here to reduce tension when put on my longish head.
I have fully removed the strap now for repair when I get home. I have added some more pictures of the insides etc. Funny wiring :)
Bit of glue, refit the rubber bands, and reassembled.
I have straightened the rubber bands (less twists = longer band) and done it up tight around the strap. The result is that the strap is loose fitting and won't need any stretching. The headband may now be a little loose but will try them out for a day and see if I need to adjust.
For anyone looking to adjust the band - remove the screw on the inside of the band and slip the outer cover downwards. When assembling, ensure you put them on the same way they came off - the left hand outer has an L stamped on the inside.
30bucks...I have been rippppped off !!!!
i had the K702/q701/k550....never quite settled down with them for longgg...
despite my unexplainable deep liking for AKGs b4 i heard them..LOL.
this EVO will comfort me for the loss of my akgs.. 50 30bucks..man who could believe this china marvel.
( aren't a lot of cans made in china..? )
I live in Switzerland
Thomann doesn't charge for VAT outside the Euro zone and Switzerland isn't not part of the European Union.
Shipping is free since I order with friends and the orders are always over 199 EUR.
In the end, the EVOs cost me 23.45 EUR instead of 27 EUR.
23.45 EUR = 29 Swiss Francs = $30 US
It's that simple.
And it this is why I bought a lot of different Superlux models Who wouldn't at that ridiculous low price?
After I sold my Philips X1 and my DT-880 600 (which are both excellent but I don't miss), I bought a lot of inexpensive superb sounding phones... (each one with its own signature). When it comes to headphones, sound signature diversity is a 'must' imo.
See by youself:
And Thomann is apparently selling Superlux gear like hot cakes...
Check the headphones top-sellers:
I had to go back a few pages to figure this post out :) If you want to adjust headband tension/position, I would suggest you open the sides of the headphones up, and tweak the rubber band. In my case I opened them to fix the band which I had torn due to pulling, but I untwisted the rubber bands whilst in there, and adjusted the tension by tightening the knots on the band. They sit better on my head without pulling.
I have noticed there is a difference in the rubber band (different batches of the headphones?) - it may look like the band below which differs from mine. Worth noting that if you were to remove this and 'exercise' the band a bit the tension may let off a little. I did this while I was messing around inside there so maybe that helped too.
Dun think my head's gonna break any rubberbands...hehe
This can has been on my head the whole week, quite a feat given the other cans i have...
paired with the inexpensive darkvoice 336se, with a pair of nondescript tubes n this can smokes.
Angling the pads with some stuffings is highly recommended.
the sound is nothing like 50bucks..sorry 30bucks.
A very simple mod is changing the original pad to stock t50rp pad that make the sound more balance, less, tighter bass, mid more foward and reduce the sharp dip at 4khz:
Green line is the EVO with t50rp pads, purple line is stock EVO (graph and modding from Frans@diyah)
The graph is from EVO with pleather. I dont have the EVO, only the original 681 but the cup dimension is the same so i believe the t50rp pads will fit tight and well in the EVO:
As velour vs pleather, i only have about 10 minute to listen to a original 681 with akg 240 velour pad and there is very little different between velour and stock pads, Frans also said that.
