Incredible value and sound quality

By: on 14 February 2024
Hi everyone If you are looking for and amazing set of headphones at an unbelievable price I would highly recommend buying the Superlux HD681 Studio Monitoring Headphones from Artist Guitars NZ. I can not compare them against the high end of the market but as far as I was concerned the sound produced by these headphones is amazing. I have never heard my CD's sound so great singers voices so clear and life like then there are the instruments I have never noticed before coming out as if you were there live. Then there is the movie side of things have no fear of lacking in bass if it's in there these puppies will impress you. From the shattering of glass and bullet shells hitting the ground to the thunderous explosions it is all there for you to enjoy. My son is a gamer and was so impressed; now that's saying a lot. He has put his much higher priced ones on the shelf as these are lighter a lot more comfortable and he likes the crispness and bass of the HD681. So I have ordered another pair for me. The 3yr warranty alone says it all as well. Excellent communication every step of the way regarding delivery. We have had this pair for almost a week and tried a lot of different tests on them and we were never let down. Well done Artist Guitars and thank you for a great service and excellent product. One last thing the length of the cord is great can plug into the amp and relax on the couch no trouble at all. You also get an adapter for the larger sockets. Thank you again Artist Guitars

Awesome headphones

These headphones are so good I got a pair for each child - one for the electric drum player, and one for the electric guitar player. They're very comfortable to wear, sound quality is good, and ability to use in both 3.5mm and 6.3mm outlets is a real bonus, as they can use with their amps but also iPads etc. Great value for money too.

Excellent value for money. Superb bass response ,50mm driver really brings out the lower frequencies while keeping a natural well balanced sound across the entire spectrum. Super comfortable as well, already worn them for a couple of hours & no fatigue or feeling like my heads been in a vice. Love them, can't wait to do some recording . As always fast efficient processing & shipping from Artist Guitars. BIG thank you!!

This is my second pair of these. I loved them so much, I had to get some more. Excellent sound, as good as some I've used costing ten times the price, especially combined with SoundID.

These are excellent for people who wear hearing aids. With me, the hearing aids fit completely inside the cushions so there is no discomfort. They are the best headphones I have ever bought.

Excellent for using with my keyboard without disturbing other members of the household. Appreciate havung the longer cord, which was an issue with the previous headset I used. Btw, sound pretty good too, with seemly flat frequency response with depth of bass

Surprisingly good for the price

Bought my gamer son these as he tends to demolish headphones through lack of care and these are not only sturdy, but the sound is great and he finds them comfortable to wear for hours. I honestly wasn’t expecting too much at the price but have been pleasantly surprised

Great Sounding Headphones

By: on 8 November 2021
I needed a neutral sounding wired set to use with my Spark 40 practice amp and they work perfectly. In fact the guitar actually sounds better through these than through the amp's speaker. Great value as usual from Artist. Highly recommended.

Needed a set of headphones for late night practicing. They achieved that perfectly with great sound and comfort. Plug them into my amp and let rip without upsetting my family. Great value for money and will but another pair when back in stock.

Best headphones I've ever owned.

By: on 18 May 2021
I have just bought a second set, in case something happens to the originals which I also bought from here. They are, by far, the best headphones I have ever owned. They beat my old Technics - which is no easy feat! It's so hard to find a decent 'over-the-ear' set these days as most are too trebly, muddy, or bassy to a fault. These headphones have clear crisp treble, excellent bass, and the most amazing thing about them is the natural ambience of the set - they make you feel like you are placed in a second room. The audio headroom is unbelievable and there are no artificial artifacts that taint the sound. They are nice and big (which is important), they are light, comfortable and durable. They look good, and the cord is LONG. I give them FIVE STARS with ease!

I was a litle scepticale - but wow - these are great- the bass is great - good tone- crisp and clear ... these sound better than my $150 headphones. Good job people. What a fantastic price - good headphones, my recording yesterday sounded clearer and more vibrant than usual. The delivery was amazing- I orderd on Tuesday I was using them on Wednesday morning. - keep up the good work. I also purchased a guitar tuner - that works great straight out the box - battery included awesome. thanks

The MOST value

By: on 14 July 2020
Literally the best headphones for the money - they aren't gonna win any beauty contests but for a broke musician like myself these are a godsend. Good frequency range, surprisingly accurate bass, sound quality equal to cans costing twice the price. Cons: oooo they ugly, Weirdly long cable is a bit to manage on the go, They *feel* cheap. Pros: They SOUND expensive, They're cheap, Weirdly long cable is great for studio use. Conclusion: if you want the best cans fifty bucks can buy, this is them.

Nice Headphones, especially for the price

By: on 22 June 2019
I didn't really know what to expect when I bought these as some reviews weren't saying they were comfortable but I found them a really good fit. The Bass reproduction and general fidelity was a very pleasant surprise, I've heard other brand headphones that are clear but lacking in the lower register but you certainly cant say it about these. Well worth the money.

Bang for buck!!

These are cheap headphones, but they sound magnificent. The build quality isn't the best bit it's still very useful. There are simple modifications you can do to these to bring up to spec with headphones 4 x the price.

Superlux HD681 Studio Monitoring Headphones. Awesome headphone for its price, I use it mainly for my Atomic Amplifire and delivers the sound in my head. Very light to carry and doesn’t colour the sound as expected of these types of headphones.

I got these h/phones with the Medeli A300 keyboard pack. Very good audio clarity, clear, bright and well balanced sound with a tight solid bass. Excellent monitoring headphones. If you were buying them as a separate item they represent good value. Thanks for the tip below about the velour pad covers, I will try some of those for extra comfort.

Sounds So Good

By: on 25 May 2018
My grandson is very hard on headphones, I saw these @ Artist Guitars and thought I would give them a go. Like everything from Artist they arrived on time and as described, I must say they are far better than I expected and my grandson loves them. They provide good sound and are comfortable to use on his PC, now all we need is another pair for his amp. :)
