Superlux HD668B / Sennheiser HD 429 or should I hold out for AKG-K551?

I've narrowed my choices down to the following:-

 

Superlux HD668B

Sennheiser HD 429

 

I've discounted the Lindy Premiums as I'm now trying to keep my price bellow £50-60 if I can.... at the same time though I'm still thinking I may be best holding out for the AKG-K551's for the extra £40?

 

Help! I need opinions! :o

I would go for the 681evo.. An absolutely lovely headphone. Warm yet detailed. Great bass and good soundstage. A more fun sounding akg k242hd is the closest thing I can relate them to. The k551 is rather cold sounding and there are some issues with getting a proper seal. I would seriously pick the 681evo over them any day. The quality of the akgs is impressive though. The 681 does not stand a chance. Considering the difference in Price they shouldn't either.

Am I correct in thinking that the 681 EVO is a later model than the 668B? Whats the reason for go for the 681 EVO over the 668B?
