What can I say? They're a sub-?30 pair of Superlux headphones.

Having tried the old HD-681s which were an amazing pair for the price, I can say that the Evos are that and bucket-loads more!

I was pleasantly surprised upon opening the packaging to find two cables; a short one, perfect for use with a portable device and a longer one, perfect for use with, well, anything that's a little further away. The headphones themselves have a male 3.5mm jack on a short cable extending from the left ear cup. This allows you to replace the cable with any after-market cable should you so desire. As both cables are female on one end, they can be combined to create what is possibly the longest cable I've ever seen on a pair of headphones out of the box!
Also included is a small clip which helps ensure that the attached cable does not come lose, but use without it was not an issue in the slightest.
A 1.4 inch jack is thrown in for good measure along with a second pair of pads made form a soft, breathable fabric which is extremely comfortable and is great for longer wearing sessions.

If you've owned or read/watched/heard reviews of the old 681s, you'll have heard many say that they had quite sharp and fatiguing treble. A common fix was to place a cotton pad in the ear-cup to act as a sort of filter. This has be addressed in the Evos and adds even more to their great sound. I primarily use these for light gaming at times when I'm not at liberty to use my surround setup and as such, the semi-open build lends itself quite well to my needs.
The sound-stage is excellent without sacrificing isolation and without having to fork out a few hundred euros for a much higher end pair of cans. On top of that, the detail throughout the spectrum is great, with clean highs, warm and 'full' sounding mids and deep, mud-free bass.

Overall, these headphones are hands-down the best pair I've yet to use in this price range and are a must have if you're looking for a great value pair to add to your collection, or maybe to start it!

It's a birthday gift for my brother, I got it delivered to him in another town, so I can't review it myself, but here's what he thinks of the 681 Evo:

Comfort: the headphones are lightweight and well balanced, wearing them for a long time shouldn't be tiresome. Two pairs of cushions, leatherette or velours, allow to find the touch you want.

Sound: they deliver a complete range, with lows more present without overwhelming other frequencies.

Workmanship and finish seem to be there; good materials assembled with care. 2 cable lengths and a 6.35mm adapter round up the connectivity.

He gives them 4 stars overall.

Good value for money

Used it daily for more than a year (both in studio and for listening to music), audio quality very good, lasted very well considering how badly I treated it (stuffing it in the bottom of gym bags etc). The wire just where it connects to the earpiece eventually broke. Not the most uncomfortable headphones I've used by far, but in a warm room your head will be very warm.
The long wire was useful in studio.

I am a 4th year music technology student and haven't much money but wanted some good headphones for college as my last Seinheiser ones where broke by a family member sitting on them!
I looked up loads of reviews on many different cheap headphones but with good quality and found these were to be the best. I bought them from Thomann and have found them to live up to the hype. A friend of mine bought some AKG headphones for over 300 euro and I honestly feel like these headphones are very similar to them after using his and comparing my ones.
They are comfy however I found that after time they are starting to slip on my head a little as they are fit for all sizes so you cannot adjust them so people with small heads they can be a bit annoying after a bit of wear. The only other problem I had with them was that there is a lot of spillage. Other than that I cant fault them. I use them for mixing music for college and listen to music in them too.

I would definitely recommend them because for the price they are well worth it.

Best for the price!

These cans need cc. 30-40 hours burn-in time to give you the best performance. Their sound is really great for the price. In some cases I even prefer them to my AKG K550 (it costs 6 times as the EVO), because the EVO is way more funnier, while the sound of the K550 is too neutral and bright and it sounds a bit artificial to me sometimes. Unfortunately there were several reported issues with the cables, Superlux should pay more attention to fix these.
My first EVO had a contact failure in the right channel, but I could fix it easily. The biggest problem of the earlier models (not EVO), the piercing, hissing highs are fortunately not present anymore, the treble is clear and not fatiguing in the EVO. It works fine with portable players. I tried it with my Sansa Fuze and the volume was more than enough. However it is really bulky and looks odd on the street. But for home use I don't know better choice in entry level.
