Headphones Final Thoughts
The Superlux HD668B Headphones live up to the standard of headphones twice their price. They might not have the strongest construction, nor a trusty brand label but if Superlux keeps delivering products like this we are surely going to be paying close attention. Of course, if compared to premium headphones we did find some mistakes. The design itself is not the most comfortable, the body is fully plastic but if that means having a better sound experience I would not mind it at all at this price point. The Superlux HD668B Headphones are probably meant to be kept at home or at the office, as probably any abrupt fall might send them to headphone heaven.
Regarding the sound experience, we did find some small disturbances in the highs with a very abrupt treble, however it was easily fixed with the right EQ. The mid and the lows were truly beautiful, they just sounded right and accurate, something we did not expect at all. If you are planning on buying a cheap set of headphones as a gift or for your office we really recommend you take a look at the Superlux HD668B Headphones.
Superlux HD668B Headphones Conclusion
The Superlux HD 668B Headphones have truly raised the bar on the budget category of headphones. Unless you are trying to find a more stylish option, I really really suggest you look into what Superlux has to offer. If you are wondering why, I strongly suggest you read the rest of the article as how they perform can not be summarized in a few sentences.
As I mentioned before, the appearance is probably the thing the Superlux HD668B Headphones lack the most. They are probably notmy first option when going out to run or to travel, but if you are willing to just keep them at the office or at home they will surely give you a smile.
When thinking about construction I have to constantly keep reminding myself that they sell for only $37.95 (Amazon | Newegg). If you treat them with respect, and don’t go about using them as a weapon they will surely last long. One important thing to note is the plug interface that to us seemed vulnerable if you were to pull on it hard.
The Superlux HD 668B Headphones might not be popular among music producers, or people looking for the uttermost sound quality. But for everyday users that are just looking for a “good-enough” option, they are more than functional. You could easily plug a ModMic and have a great gaming headset.
I want to end this review by simply apologizing as I never thought I could find such a wonderful sound experience for less than $50. I completely underestimated these headphones, as they are worth every dollar if you are willing to live with the very few sacrifices.
