AmazingBy: Darren brown on 30 August 2020The sound is very impressive and quality is fantastic Highly recommended
Good headphones, with a design flawBy: David on 20 August 2020This is the second pair of these I've bought. First pair was about a year ago. Their sound and construction are both good, except for one weakness. There is a little stub of cable that hangs from one earpiece, which you connect an extension to, so you can vary the length of the cable, or replace it easily if it breaks. BUT the stub cable itself is breaking where it connects to the earpiece. (It may be repairable, but I bought a second set so I have something to use while messing with the old pair).
Good value cansBy: Darren Lucas on 1 June 2020I like these, the sound is good, the cable arrangement is smart and convenient, however they are a little uncomfortable after long periods, the ear pad options are a nice touch. Great headphones for the price.
Very rich bass for budget phones (but at the expenBy: meons on 18 April 2019I bought these headphones after reading a glowing review on rtings.com. For budget phones they are decent, the bass is incredible, but the overall sound is very "scooped" and coloured meaning you get a far from flat response. I think high-mids and highs are really lacking detail and output. If you're looking for huge bass, and not much else, these are for you. Not suitable for recording purposes, etc.
Fantastic, especially for the moneyBy: Matthew on 18 March 2019I was looking for a decent pair of open back headphones for less than $100, and that seemed like a big ask, until I stumbled upon the Superlux brand. To be honest I wouldn't have considered it but for the fact that Artist Guitars stocks it, and I've bought lots of great gear from here, so figured "why not do a bit of research on them and see what other people think". Well, the reviews were positive, so I had to try them for myself. And let's just say they definitely lived up to the expectation. The clarity and soundscape are very impressive. You can hear a dip in the mids with a bit more bass and top end (I only really hear this when I compare them to my Audio Technica ATH-m50x's) but that doesn't make them worse, just a little coloured, which is still cool. Very happy with my purchase, would definitely buy this or any other Superlux product again.
Great for Mastering/Monitoring/MixingBy: Trevor on 16 February 2019I Bought a set of these HD681 EVO cans for getting those multi layered midi mixes right before committing them to audio tracks. These are really great for the wide dynamic of a virtual drum kit. You spend a lot on good drums, you wanna get the mix right. I have both versions of the HD681series, and they are way more than what you pay for them. The lead options on this set are just what I needed. Got tired of running over the lead with my chair. The 1m lead took care of that. The longer lead allows for an extention of the other set. Plenty of room to move. I do like the two sets of paddings. In north Queensland, it gets real warm and the softer set are much more forgiving. If I was still a live engineer behind a desk, I'd be real happy to have a set of these for the task. Nice and full range and crisp. Very nice choice AG. Oh, and I might just add that the after support from AG is second to none. Appreciate all your support Jason, Ian, Molly and the crew. The HD681 EVO? 5 Stars!
Superlux HD681 EVOBy: Troy on 9 August 2018Great detail sound, not the most comfortable around ear when new. Good quality cord and the clip to stop accidental disconnection is great. Artist Guitars are a pleasure to do business with super fast delivery.
QualityBy: Colin on 30 May 2018Good quality monitoring and listening headphones. The two cable lengths are a great idea as are the extra pads. Comfortable to wear, clear sound and a great price.
