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...!
Lorin L., 30.09.2018
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.

Superluxurious
17.04.2015
I have been using the Superlux HD-681 F for over a year now and i'm still very impressed with the clarity of these cans. They are the flat response model which are perfect for the mastering projects I bought them for. They are really comfortable even when worn for hours on end. The price was very cheap and the service from Thomann was second to none.

They are great! they do the job
Simon889, 01.12.2020
These are quality!
very worth it, great for mixing/production purposes.

a little tight on the head, maybe it might change in the future as they get softer.
