This is probably just a write-up of what you already know...

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!

Great for the price but a big dull overall
Peegeebee, 08.02.2021
You'll hardly find a better pair of over the ear monitor headphones at even double this price. I use them when recording vocals and they're a bit more dull and bassy than I'd like, but once you get used to them they're good for a simple voiceover job, and the price is astonishingly good for the quality.

Not your standard review.
mckenic, 05.12.2020
I got 5 pairs of these for my cousins kids and Ive heard nothing but good things back.

Based on my own use of the Superlux HD-668 B I needed to get the kids headphones as they were killing each other for the two pairs they had between them. One little chap has aspergers and likes to isolate himself in music when things are tough for him.

So I knew anything I got for the kids had to be 1) cheap enough to get 5 pairs 2) cheap enough that if they trash them its not the end of the world and can be replaced easily 3) all exactly the same so there would be no fighting for the 'better' ones 4) comfortable enough both physically and acoustically for kids to use them for hours on end with their phones/tablets/gaming systems.

I love my HD-668 Bs so had no worries getting the HD-681s. I did think I would need to get the replacement velour pads as I did for my own - but the kids love them! I have not heard a peep or a complaint (in fact the opposite) so to me that speaks volumes, if the kids like them they pass my tests!

For the price they are very, very easy to recommend!

Affordable general-purpose stylish headphones
10.12.2016
These headphones are good all-around phones, very cheap for their quality. As a general rule of thumb, you will notice a difference when you compare these ones with most big brand ¤150++ phones but for any budget under say roughly ¤80 you won't so you'll save quite a lot. Just equalize them to your liking, but out-of-the-box it's also good. I use them often to practice guitar, bass and keyboards, and compose songs, without any significant hurdles.

Comes in black and white and I must say even though I usually prefer black, white is quite stylish on these!

The most notable con is that others will hear your music, but you'll have to shell out more for good sound isolation anyway. I use them in a studio and not in public so that hasn't been a problem, ever.

The installed pads can get hard on the ears after 1-2 hours, but the included replacement soft pads are somewhat better. It can vary from person to person (my head circumference is about 59 cm).

It's a 3.5 mm socket on the phone, and an included 3.5 mm cable running to my interface, which is then feeds into my monitor with an included 3.5 to 6.35 mm adapter.
