Superlux HD668B headphones £23.40 @ Gearbest (EU warehouse)

Found 13th Jul
I'm no audiophile, nor do I own a pair, but these are praised for their quality/price just about everywhere. £32 on Amazon, so there's quite a considerable saving.

+50p for expedited shipping, if that's any better.

Remember, these are open-back headphones, so may not be suitable for your intended use.

I almost bought these some months ago (before I raised my budget considerably & went for something else) - here are 3 excellent reviews I read on a headphone-enthusiast forum, with thread titles quoted from them below:

head-fi.org/f/s…40/

"A most Super Duper Sound"

"The smoking revolver: Superlux 668b"

"Giant Killer you got to hear!"

Available on Amazon UK for £32-33: amazon.co.uk/Sup…TX8

And eBay UK (from UK-sellers only) for around the same: ebay.co.uk/sch…684

Likely to.be genuine?

they are cheap made but very light and comfortable, long datachable cable and what is the most important the sound is exelent, i didn't find any headset up to £99 better than this one.

I found them uncomfortable and too bright. Harshly bright sound. I guess it depends on head size for the former but yeah.

I created an account to comment on this one.

I have a pair of these and some Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones. The Superlux sound better, even when I turned on the noise cancelling on the Bose.

To get the best sound, I followed a comment from a Amazon user - you need to break them in. Probably takes 20-40+ hrs. I did this by just leaving them plugged in to an old cd player for a few days whilst I went to work.

They are open ear, so use at home, unless you want to annoy fellow commuters and work colleagues.

Definitely worth buying.

An excellent introduction to open back headphones, a bit too bright (accentuated treble) for some people but on the whole they sound excellent for the price.

Genuine what? They're a budget headphone.

he's asking because Gearbest sell rip off stuff, e.g. Xiaomi

Anyone wanting a budget pair of headphones for less than around £100 you can't go wrong with superlux
Can always EQ some of the brightness out too

Yes that is what I meant but didn't reply as I have previously asked questions like this before and if it's someone who doesn't want to be helpful .. it starts a bunfight. Therefore I usually now do not reply to replies like this.. just in case.

If you use Foobar2000 as your audio player, take a look at Mathaudio's plugin at mathaudio.com/dow…htm . Takes a bit of fiddling, but you can make the accentuated highs less of a problem. I'd recommend making the effort to use it on any headphones you use on your PC. I have a pair of these Superlux headphones but the pads they come with are a bit uncomfortable for me so I'm waiting for the replacements I ordered back in May(!) to arrive, then I can give them a better try.

HD668B's are good headphones, especially with some modifications. Switched to velour pads and added mass damping with blu-tak and 10p pieces.

IMHO other newer headphones are better for under £40, AKG K92's are my current favourites, got a pair for £28 on prime day:

i know how you feel

Received Friday - purchased last Saturday. (gearbest are a bit slow dispatching from their EU warehouse, and use yodel, who sent them on a journey all around the UK)
Anyway, just tried them out - and discovered how bad my existing headphones are.
Thanks OP
