These headphones are extremely for someone who does not need a lot of bass and who will use them at home.
There are two reasons why I would not recommend going outside wit these on your head. 1) the soundproofing is amazing! I live next to a river with a weir and when I went around I was not even able to hear the waterfall there. The front and sides disable sounds extremely well, the backside was not that good, but still fine. 2) The headphones do jump a bit from one to another. I know that this might be an issue of this particular piece, but the sound simply sometimes switches to left piece only. However, I have found out that after a few days occurs significantly less. I cannot say why. This is also one of the reasons why i am giving it 4 stars for quality (the problem is almost non-present now).

Quality
As I said, the sound issue mentioned above is still present, even though just sometimes compared to the time of unboxing. The headphones are plastic and I would not really bend and twist them much as they seem a bit fragile. I once heard a little click when I put them on just one ear and the second part behind the ear - that was startling.
They have jack right next to an earphone and you need to use another, longer, cable to connect your device. It is a good thing as the standard issue with damaged jack is not going to be a problem here.

Comfort
In terms of comfort I have to say that they fit rather well. I would probably prefer one extra step towards the smaller side, but I have a really small head for a man. The support is flexible and I did not feel any fatigue after three or four hours with those on my head. Really well done.

Sound
As I said in the beginning, I think that these headphones are not good for someone who wants a lot of bass. They simply lack it and it is one of the reasons why I bought them - the higher pitched tones are amazing and are always stronger than the bass. Really good for guitar, for brass instruments or any other string and speech (audiobooks sound much clearer). Really bad for electronic music. It might be something you are looking and it might be something you really want to avoid.

Package
It comes in a nice box and includes headphones, larger jack "reduction", a red bag and two cables - 1m and 3m. It is overall a nice selection and two lengths of cables are pretty useful.

Conclusion
If you are looking for headphones which do not overdo it with bass as so many others do, than this might be your choice. They are comfortable and the build quality is actually pretty high considering the price of 25-30 bucks (depending on color). The soundproofing is amazing so I would also recommend them to anyone who just needs to shut everything around off.
All and all I feel that I cannot but recommend these headphones.

In one word: clarity

I waited a couple weeks before writing this, so the drivers would become more supple, they sounded a bit dry when they were new. I'll compare it to my Sennheiser HD-202 because it's the only other I have, and people know it as a good unexpensive unit.

The 202 made my cheapo Philips sound like a toy; now the Superlux makes the 202 sound like a toy. I hear more instruments in the background, like triangles and minor percussions. The very last, dim repetitions of delays are heard with no effort of attention, and the chorus/delay move from left to right is clearer.

It's more powerful, too; when I listen to recent videos I use it at 3/4 or 4/5 volume on my computer, when I had to go full power with the 202. More becomes a little painful. With older vids that usually have a weaker sound, I can max out the volume to compensate. Despite having twice the impedance the Superlux has more power.

I have a Grundig RRCD 3720 stereo with 100mm speakers; when I alternate between headphones and speakers, the sound is incredibly similar. I listened to Jean-Michel Jarre's "Equinoxe" album to make the comparison, its range of sounds and frequencies is extreme, good for revealing quality and sound transparency, which the 661 has.

The greatest improvement was with metal. I loved Firewind's "The fire and the fury" instrumental through the 202, which feels dull now, but with the Superlux the ferociousness is way more intense, and nothing is lost in clarity, on the contrary. The distortion really bites and growls!

Pop music: Madonna's "Hung up" (with the Abba keyboard riff) has more enveloping bass, and it sounds less synthetic.

Classical: Borodin's "Polovtsian dances" was way more moving, voices are present, sound is more epic. Instruments in the vast orchestra are well separated. 3-D is better, and does not sound like a sci-fi special effect.

The tone in Pink Floyd's bass, and in some classical guitar pieces contained more of the wood's sound. I love to perceive the wood, and I consider this a sign of quality for the instrument as well as the stereo player.

Seems the Superlux has less hum, too, the coaxial cable shielding seems to absorb interference better, or it's the overall quality. It never felt heavy or stressful, and the outside sound is so muffled I don't hear myself knocking on the table.

It had a bad solder, so opening it to fix it allowed me to see the inside workmanship is less refined than inside the Sennheiser, however the outside workmanship and aesthetics are way better. It does not make my skin sweat after one or two hours, but I try to make a pause after half an hour, however it's difficult to resist the temptation to keep listening to the brand new tone!

The single-side cable (left can) is a relief, the double (and wimpy) cables always felt clumsy. I always use the shorter cable; the 202's take-up for its 3m cable was always an annoyance to keep in the hand. The headband's self-adjustment works, I wondered about it at the beginning, and it felt a little weird, but I forgot about it after a few minutes.

So now I keep the 202 for listening to myself on the amps, and reserve the 661 for pleasure music.
