the fantastic superlux but!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Superlux HD668B Headphones (Electronics)
Right the 688bs are really good but!!! they are very harsh the highs can be very overwhelming, but that can be fixed easy by using a equalizer i use the one on my PC, which came with my asus xonar st sound card that has a built in headphone amp that is defiantly needed to drive these baby's,( BTW paid £19 pound for the sound card)
So they can be made to sound really great, the bass and mid's are very good to my ears, so no issues the build quality is made from really tough plastics and solid metal wire construction they look like heavy duty made to last and that's what they feel like,
only other things i didn't like are the 2 prong head band cushions they can be a bit harsh after long periods, as they press onto your head making it a bit sore that can be fixed easy by bending them up to fit your head i have a big head BTW,
one last thing is the ear pads are made from a synthetic materiel like a hard rigid plastic leather, that becomes uncomfortable after an hour or so of use, and make your ears sweat,
that has to be my biggest gripe but can easily be fixed by buying the velour ear pads on eBay for £10 job done and now all this done i am very happy with the Superlux 688s and they are a joy to use!!
and i use them everyday for music and PC gaming and voip i don't think you will find a better sounding Headset for the price they sound like much more expensive cans in the £100-150 range i e AKG's!!
