The HD668B is a semi-open dynamic headphone whose sound quality meets the demands of even professional recording studios. Its patented sturdy construction provides long-lasting durability even in challenging conditions, yet the headband’s light weight and optimized mechanical pressure provides long-term wearing comfort. The HD668B comes equipped with 2 detachable straight cables: the short one is 1 meter long for personal sound source on-the-move applications and the long one is 3 meters long for professional monitoring applications. Both cables can be connected together for even more distance if desired.

The quality of the build is good, it has fallen a couple of times and everything is as good as new. The option of the two cables is welcome, although I feel like the small cable is too small for any practical use aside from plugging it to the laptop. I use the long one exclusively. Also the little clip that holds the cable in place with the headphone is another welcome gimmick, more so when you're using the long cable and you or your cat 'accidentally' (we all know is on purpose) trip with the cable.
The fit is where I have problems with it. I wear glasses, and it is not friendly to them. I usually have to put the headphone first, and then kind of put the glasses in a weird 90 degrees angle, if I wear the headphones on top of the glasses it's just too uncomfortable. It doesn't bother me that much to have to put the glasses on that weird angle, I've gone hours without noticing that they're in that position, but is just worth noting.
The top part feels weird sometimes depending on the position. I move them a lot, and depending of the angle the little pads on top become comfortable, ok, and uncomfortable. In general they are ok, but I would have liked something a little softer.
The sound quality is excellent, at least for me it is, and I was even able to set the output to 7.1 and you could hear almost all of the sounds in the position they should be. I use it generally in just stereo output, but for some games I put it in 5.1 and everything is crips and beautiful.
Sound quality is similar, all three using the Turtle Beach Earforce DSS. I am not an audiophile, but I haven't noticed a difference between semi-open and closed headphones.
They are comfortable and seem to be better constructed that Turtle Beach - the X11 broke at the bracket holding one ear pad, the X12 developed a short in the wire. The Superlux has more metal in the construction and uses a thicker headphone cable. I have noticed a "bonk" sound when the cable strikes anything (i.e. armrest of the chair), but I rarely notice.
I would be disappointed if I paid more and I disagree with reviewers claiming they are mind-blowing, but I am a satisfied customer.
Overall sound quality is superb. Construction and build quality is good, but not great, but at this price level, there has to be some compromise, and I'm really just nitpicking. headphones are exceptionally neutral out of the box, and respond well to EQ tweaking. Amplifier does improve the headphone, but it's still very usable unamplified hooked up to a phone. Box is nice, two cords and included 1/4 adapter, little clip to keep the removable cord attached, carrying bag, My only complaint is maybe a touch too much clamping force and the head pads are just not that great. But I'm pretty certain that these first impressions will change as they break in on my head, they should get more comfortable. Certainly not an audio technica ATH AD700's ludicrous comfort, but certainly not bad. I'm very sensitive to comfort and went about an hour and a half before noticing the faintest beginnings of discomfort.
You can tell in the manual that it's taiwanese, but the build quality is definitely a step above what can be expected at this price point, and there really is nothing else apart from some janky translation in the manual that this is anything but a quality pair of budget headphones.
And like I said, sound quality is the star of the show. Everything else is above average, the sound fidelity is downright exceptional. Paired with the accessories included and well packaged design, the price really elevates it to proper five star level.
Sound isolation is pretty good. It really is "semi open" in that if you were in a quiet room, people might hear a little background noise coming from your head, but if there's any ambient sound, nobody will hear. I will say that wearing them, they don't isolate so much that speaking feels strange (which is a bonus when used as a gaming headset) but are certainly not transparent. I used them in a bit noisy diesel ambulance all day and they were moderately isolating from the rattling/rumbling of a gigantic tractor engine. The semi open design is best summed up as "isolates your sound from others but doesn't really isolate them from you" which is a bonus for some and a drawback for others. On balance, however, I like it, and feel they wouldn't be rude or obnoxious on an airplane.

A lightweight, very comfortable set of headphones. It is very affordable, superb sound for an entry level studio grade/listening/gaming headset.Read more
In my opinion, they are very quite.
