amazon Superlux HD681EVO reviews
Basic technical parameter:
Dynamic driver, 50mm driver diameter
Semi – Open headphone
98dB sensitivity creates 1 KHz
Frequency range 10 – 30000Hz
Earpad made of artificial leather
Quality of processing and associated accessories:
An improvement from the old HD681, this time Superlux gives us a more premium, more beautiful design. However, because Superlux is an OEM manufacturer, this product is still a bit of an AKG or Audio Technica product.
Overall, HD861EVO is made up of plastic, only the two upper fixed bars are metal. Material paint is glossy, easy to stick fingerprints. If it is rough paint, it will probably be more aesthetic and enhance the product value. The sound opening in the ear cup is beautifully made, the trim is neat and sharp. Leatherette earpad is very soft, the stitching line is not faulty. The headband follows AKG’s design, of course it is not smooth, but it is still very comfortable to wear.
Accessories come with a user manual, 1 jack from 3.5 -> 6.3mm. 2 separate wires (1m and 3m), depending on the needs of the user, which is suitable for use, 1 pair of replacement pad (note the material of this replacement pad is velvet, not leatherette), 1 headphone pouch. It must be said that the number of accessories of this device is too full. This is the score I highly appreciate at Superlux.
Source: iPod Classic. Using some live recording tracks, OST of some Anime, Yao Si Ting to test sibilance and mid level details,….
If in the old HD681, the bass is not deep, the amount is not much but it is not focused, the HD681 EVO has improved a lot. The amount of bass is more, the force is quite strong, just deep enough, not rampant, quite concentrated. However, it is a bit slow so it is difficult to perform rock and metal performances well. This type of bass makes the overall sound quality somewhat warmer.
Still like the Superlux characteristic, the midrange is still extremely detailed, beating every headphone at the same price range, you can detect the smallest sound, which normally cannot be performed by other headphones. If in the old version, the mid tone was a bit backward, in the new Evo, the mid tone was pushed up, thicker, more emotional. And especially very little sibilance (hiss when singers pronounce “s”, “ch”). Completely different from the original, sibilance is very severe. With this neutral mid tone, it is suitable for listening to both male and female vocalists.
With the two bass and mid bands that have performed well, I personally do not expect the treble strip of a product of this budget. But the treble strip of HD681EVO still performed very well, not being “flat” as the old version (partly because the overall sound of this new EVO has a tendency to be warm, not dazzling as the old version). No grit, if not too strict, this is probably one of the full size headphones with good treble in the price range.
Soundstage and sound:
Still the inherent identity of the Superlux headphones, the soundstage is very wide, partly due to its semi – open design. The image is also quite accurate, through testing with Live recordings, the writer can “guess” the location of the sound source of each musician. This will support very well in the FPS game genre.
In the price of $50, this is one of the full size headphones with the best p/p ratio.
The sound of the 681EVO is balanced in all 3 bands. The soundstage is wide, the details are good and the tradition of Superlux. Therefore, this headset can serve well both for gaming which needs detail and accuracy in sound.
If you need a headphone with a beautiful design, good processing quality, play a variety of music and cum gaming headphones for a price not too high, Superlux HD681EVO is an option not to be missed.
