Which Superlux is equivalent to the K271 mkII?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Something specific about the K271 sounds amazing to me. It's interesting what Superlux has done and I'd like to grab a model with similar signature to the K271 mk2 for comparisons sake, and disassembly/inspection. From innerfidelity's headphone graphs, the HD681 look almost the same as the K271 (smiley face is ok. It's the pattern in the highs that seems to matter for me):

Is it safe to say these will sound very similar? Is there a better choice?

The AKG K271MKII is a closed headphone and the Superlux HD-681 is semi-open.

The Superlux HD669 is a closed headphones.

You might look into the Superlux HD HD681 EVO, believe it has some good reviews.

The Samson SR850 (made by Superlux, semi-open) also gets positive feedback.
