  • 1Description

The HD-681 headphones from Superlux combine premium-quality audio components with an ergonomic design to offer accurate and detailed sound in a lightweight and comfortable package. Ideal for long, fatigue-free listening sessions, they are intended for use by musicians and audio professionals in monitoring applications, including recording live instruments and vocals, mixing, and more.

The HD-681 features around-the-ear earcups which provide sound isolation from outside noise and help eliminate "headphone bleed" when recording in the studio. The semi-open design delivers a natural sound while still offering deep bass response and minimal sound leakage. Two 50mm neodymium drivers provide a rich, balanced sound with high resolution, wide dynamic range, and excellent stereo imaging.

The headphones are equipped with a self-adjusting headband and thick around-ear cushions, providing the listener with a great fit. The HD-681 comes with a protective storage pouch and a gold-plated 1/4" adapter.

    Superlux HD-681 reviews

    HD-681 Professional Semi-Open Studio Headphones is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great entry level cans I'm a musician, producer, and audio engineer, and there are basically two things I look for in headphones: comfort and flat sound. I first tried these headphones after the death of my Beyerdynamic DT770s, and considering that these are less than half the cost of a set of those, the sound quality is astonishing. Comparing their frequency responses on a graph, these are somewhat comparable to the legendary Sony MDR-7506, but with much more forward, sometimes unpleasant highs. This great sound is possible because of their open back design, and that alone makes them a good buy, but these cans do have some issues. The biggest problem with headphones this cheap is build quality. I'm on my third pair of these in as many years. Both failures were caused by a loose connection that caused one ear to loose sound entirely. My third set has fared better. The outside of the headphones is made of cheap plastic, they can survive a drop or two but don't push your luck. The ear pads are made of a fake leather that goes hard after a short while, and, if you care, they are ugly. On top of that, they do vary a bit from set to set in terms of sound, but none so far have sounded bad, just noticeably different. These problems are minor enough that I have no problem recommending them as entry level good headphones, but I'd suggest spending more on cans if you want them for studio work. That said, I have used them for this and had good results, and there are pricier headphones that sound far worse like Skullcandy, or even some of the lower end Sennheisers. At this price, get these. If you're willing to spend more, get a set of MDR-7506 or DT770s.
