    In an introduction that marries creative inspiration from the world's leading DJ with advanced audio and technical design from the world's preeminent headphone manufacturer, HARMAN today announces the “AKG by TIËSTO” range of headphones that feature tuning and styling directed by legendary DJ and producer TIËSTO. Comprising three high-performance professional-grade headphones, the TIËSTO Series will appeal to a broad range of end users, from studio engineers, to artists, fans and TIËSTO himself - whether in the studio, at a show or on the go.

    With more than 350 million total views on YouTube, 12.8 million+ fans on Facebook and over 1.3 million followers on Twitter, TIËSTO is one of the most influential DJs in the world. His achievements have ranged from playing at the opening of the 2004 Olympics to an audience of billions, to Grammy® Award nominations and the coveted title of ‘Greatest DJ Of All Time', bestowed on him by Mixmag. As well as running his own label, Musical Freedom, TIËSTO is constantly travelling around the globe, playing over 250 shows a year to millions of fans.
    “AKG is rooted in the passion for music at the same time as having a unique eye for design and style,” TIËSTO says. “Together we've created a line of headphones that are perfect for those who want the best quality of sound, but don't wish to compromise on style, whether you're looking to mix in the studio, perform live or even listen when you're on the move.”
    The line of three headphones, K67 TIËSTO (High-Performance), K167 TIËSTO (Professional) and K267 TIËSTO (Reference) all provide users with a sound fitting for the global phenom, TIËSTO himself.
    K67 TIËSTO's on-ear design is ideal for home recording, project studios, live sound and rehearsal applications, offering a high noise attenuation. The compact design delivers sound quality wherever necessary, even outdoors.
    K167 TIËSTO is an over-ear, closed-back design for high comfort and maximum noise rejection. Suitable for multiple applications, from the stage to the studio, DJs and music enthusiasts will enjoy the stunning design and impressive sound quality, even in loud environments. Its 40mm driver allows for higher sound pressure levels, while its roadworthy design provides maximum reliability.

    K267 TIËSTO offers an over-ear, closed-back design, with an oversized low resonance driver, providing a higher SPL, while still maintaining a matched low frequency bass response. Its user-adjustable bass boost keeps sound neutral or maximizes deeper sub-bass frequencies when prompted. With high-quality materials and superior workmanship, K267's sound quality raises the bar for the professional DJ with the best performance without compromise. K267's Dual Plug-In feature allows the user to attach the cable to either side for maximum comfort. In addition, each set boasts 3D-Axis folding mechanisms for optimum fitting and flat storage.

    Great.........now I need to add the Tiesto to my list of most wanted cans, as if the list wasn't long enough already.  I like how the user-adjustable bass/soundstage isn't just level #s, but selected as environments.
     
    M-100 is ahead in the hype war, but I think I am now more interested in the Tiesto 267 than Momentum.

    Matrim thanks for those honest and in-depth impressions, especially regarding the comparison between the Amps and the HDs. My impressions of the HDs, M-80s, and DT1350s match yours as well. Love the photo too!

    It's getting crowded in the closed portable space

    Damn - I'm liking the idea of being able to switch the "sound mode" but I'm curious about how well it will work in practice.
     
    Right now - from highest hopes to lowest, my top 4 on the list would be...
    1. V-MODA VTF-100 (Ordered it, so it will be the first I hear. I like -FWIR- the customization and strength, worried about the leakage/isolation)
    2. AKG K267 TIËSTO (Liking the modular nature of the sound - if it works - and the style is mature, not too flashy, a big +)
    3. SONY MDR1-1R & 1RNC (Hoping that Sony hits a high note with these, and hoping even more that someone finally makes a good NC can)
    4. Sennheiser Momentum (I like the classy style, but I've never really been too much of a huge fan of the Sennheiser sound)

    What's the Vmoda 100 supposed to sound like? If it rolls off highs and bumps up bass like the M80, I'll pass [​IMG]
     
    If its neutral and detailed and fast, I'm interested.

    No price yet for the akg's yet so who knows what the sound will be like they should be good though!

    The pre-order prices I've been seeing have been around $350 - $399 I think - let me double check.
     
    Yeah, $449 is the list price, with the retail price around $350.

    If you don't like the M80, the M100 may not be your cup of tea, but I expect it to be mine.

    Thanks for your impressions/comparisons. I tried the HD25-i-ii at a Guitar Center store but I didn't get to use my own source. Listening to the Amperor with my own source, I did notice that it picked up details more so than the HD25-i-ii. Like you said though, is the Amperior worth the extra money? For me, absolutely not. I'm paying $350 for portable headphones and they don't sound THAT spectacular. Any benefits you get over the HD25-i-ii are most likely drowned out by outside noise if you're commuting a lot, such as myself. Sure the 18 ohms is convenient for portable media players, the comfort is way better with the velour pads, and the microphone may be a really good one, but for the extra $150 just doesn't cut it for me. I would consider the Amperior to be a very fun sounding headphone (I found that it has a very U/V shaped sound signature) over a serious audiophile headphone and the price just isn't priced right for me.

    I'm with Craig, although they should have some more extended highs this time around. Having said that, the highs on the M-80s may not sparkle but there is plenty of detail in the highs and across the board to my ears.

    I have to say, after seeing the modular nature of the K267's, they've peaked my interest. Let's hope they're better than other "celebrity headphones"

    Based on your description, you may want to try out the Denon D600 or Mad Dogs.
