Superlux HD-681 The New industry standard ? could well be !

Superlux HD-681 The New industry standard ? could well be !

I have a studio and i am at the moment recording and mixing tracks for a 13 piece funk band, some of their tracks are getting toward 48 tracks!,
Now, thats alot of clutter too make sence of.
while doing the keyboard tracks, i gave the keyboard player a pair of Bayer DT100, and after a few seconds
he took them off and said they sounded "Horrid" he then plugged in a pair he had brought with him, a pair of HD-681 i played the track and the nod of his head confirmed all was better, he took them off and let me try, i did an A,B test against the DT100, and must admit i liked the HD 681better,
Now i know the thought behind the DT100s as monitor headphones, build quality, parts, industry standards ETC, and you dont get the isolation with the 681 that the DT100 offers.
But if others pref the Superlux who am i to try and tec talk them out of their comfort zone ?
If they know how they sound in them then thats just perfect.
On the back of all that, i purchased a few pairs and having lived with them for while now, i have just Purchased another few pairs from Thomanns for the studio, People like them, and if they are happy i am happy and i am even more happy about the price, £16.35 does not buy you alot now days,
I am sure you will like these for what you will pay,
i really dont think there is alot out there that comes close for up to triple the price, and there can't be
ANYTHING at the same price or less.
They seem abit bass heavy, and i can hear the very lows in them, which is a good thing i have tried this taking low freq on the Eq which seems to respond better than my AKGs,
But i also got a pair of HD-681B which have a flatter bass response, but i still like the normal HD681.

So, you are now thinking, "ok, do i take the chance ?"
i dont think at £16 it is a chance,

try them, and if you hate them, its no big loss against getting another pair for £100+ and you hating them.
Because at the end of the day it is still how YOUR ears
hear things.


Me ? i like them, i am going to use them to mix the next "funkafonix" single release, as i am now used to them and know how things sound in them to alter for sounding good on CD,
So, fingers crossed, we shall see

Not exactly Pro standards, but superb for music and gaming on a budget!
Nate in Belgium, 07.06.2020
I bought these to listen to music and for playing PC games after reading online recommendations. I have them connected to a Monolith Liquid Spark headphone amp connected to my PC's onboard DAC line out.

My main decision was based on sound quality, imaging and price. I liked the noted sound signature listed on the Superlux website and from reviews I've read. I have to say I'm actually blown away with how they sound! These have a nicer sound signature than my old Sennheiser HD580s. Yes they are cheaply built, but look how much they cost. I'm sure if you look after them and treat them with respect they will last long enough. My biggest complaint is the clamping force and thin earpads. Very uncomfortable, I've ordered thicker velour pads from China to compensate.

Pros: Spacious sound with good clarity, depth and punch making them ideal for gaming. Gorgeously musical. Ridiculous price.

Cons: Treble forward. Not going to compete with high end headphones (but snapping at the heels of phones costing 5-10x as much). Clamping force is probably the worst I've encountered. Build quality fits what you pay for...cheap.

This headphones sound incredible for its price. For less than 20€ I don't believe you can find any headphones with better quality.
I use them to mix and to hear my recordings and for now I'm very very happy!
The only con is that they look like they are a little fragile. But I'm usually very careful so it doesn't seem to be a problem for me.

Very positively surprised!
Nak0r, 28.03.2020
I bought these as i wanted a cheap headset just to monitor things at night to not disturb the neighbors. Bought them specifically because i'm very used to wearing AKG headsets and love how comfortable they are, and these looked similar in construction.
I was not disappointed! Extremely comfortable like the AKGs, though not as well ventilated, my ears tend to heat up if wearing them for a while. As for the sound, i've seen some people complain about harsh top end, but i find the sound extremely pleasing! Bear in mind though: both the bottom and top ends are slightly to moderately hyped, so consider these more of a "hi-fi" type headset than any kind of monitoring solution.
