Surprisingly good quality for minimal cost
Joe911 16.05.2013
I bought this item because it looked comfortable, for long recording sessions. I now have 2 pairs, and bought another for a friend. The headphones are very comfortable, but was surprised that the claimed frequency response appears to be or could well be a fact.

I happened to be building a soft synth in Pure Data one evening, and decided to generate some frequencies to find out what I could hear at 59 years of age. I managed to take the frequency to about 17k and could hear it still through the headphones. That's higher than a Shure SM58 captures.

Nobody at the time of writing has commissioned me to test the Superlux to full verification (20KHz?), but it's easily done if you know PD or Max/MSP, simply generate 20K, then put the recording (with a good condenser mic) into a DAW that has pitch transposition, EG Cubase, then drop it an octave, and see if you get a 10K pitch which should be more audible and checkable against a reference. Reprocessing the signal (wav or whatever) down another two octaves would make the sound clearly audible. Alternatively doing an FFT on the original signal gained or using a spectrum analyser should confirm the fundamental frequency as generated by PD.

In a few words, if you only need headphones that work, practicably, without a big pricetag, I haven't yet seen how to beat these. I have a pair of Sennheiser headphones with a better mid-frequency separation, but they tend to hurt ears after a while.

If detail is what you want...!

The F(lat) version of these headphones sound really good. From the first play I noticed a full and surrounding sound. At this price point you probably can't find a better one. Detailed sound and full of dynamics. The bass comes out clear too, even better than the normal version of the HD681. Keep in mind that it really depends on your sound card. A good one will deliver a great sound through the F version.

The included ear pads feel soft and comfortable too. But you can also buy "Superlux HD-681 Ear Pads Velour" for more comfort and premium feeling. These are a bit tricky to put on but worth it.

Is being used for metronome only.
Sound quality is so-so, was expected to be better, but for the price I guess it is ok.
Really comfortable.
Once used for 3 hours straight. Not too much sweating or heat.
Ears didn't hurt.

These headphones are an affordable option which deliver good sound and are comfortable to wear. I found the basic response to favour higher frequencies, but with some EQ tweaking a balanced sound is easily attainable. In noisy surroundings these headphones do not provide adequate isolation, so they would be more suited to applications in quiet environments.

The versatility of the screw-on jack adapter makes it easy to use on portable devices or standard 1/4" jack headphone sockets. After about three years of moderate use the connection at the jack started to fail, rendering them unusable until a new jack was soldered on.
