Looks great! The outside has a shiny black/ matte finish. Some parts look a little bit cheap, but hey - for less than $40 this is ridiculously good.
I do not know if this is standard for everyone, but my headphones came with an extra pair of velour pads. Those are really comfortable, but I found them to be somewhat scratchy after wearing them for several hours.
The top headband is an interesting design. It is one piece of adjustable material, with soft air filled pads placed in the middle. It is surprisingly comfortable and I can barely feel them.
The cables are nice and thick. Not very portable, but they feel a lot more sturdy than most other cables I've seen.
After burning in these headphones for over 40 hours, I feel like I can make an accurate judgment.
Although the HD681 Evo's are described as open headphones, they are closer to being closed than open. They leak very little sound, but have enough "openness" to have a great sound stage. You could use them in a public setting based on this, but I feel like they are too big to actually be portable.
The bass is definitely there. Nice and tight, but a little bit overpowering (nothing that can't be fixed with an equalizer).
The mids are somewhat lacking. If you look at the frequency response graphs, there is a bad dip around 4k.
The highs are what really took one star off this review. Without any changes to the original headphones, the highs were quite muffled. To fix this, I followed a popular advice and took out the outer felt. This did clear up the highs somewhat, but the highs then became too sibilant. I am really hoping that some more burning in will clear it up a little, but this is probably me being too hopeful.
All in all, this is a pair of really good cans for their price.
The included velour ear pads are a nice touch, and I highly recommend using them as they are more comfortable. The bag included is a little small for the headphones themselves, but works great for storing the accessories. ( BTW, the full accessories list is: carrying bag, longer cable, velour ear pads, large plug adapter, and a clip to secure the cable better to the headphones)
My only complaint for these would be the non-standard male plug on the headphones side. This prevents me from using many custom cables with it. However, this can be easily solved with a female to female 3.5mm adapter plug like this one: Monoprice 107185 3.5mm Stereo Jack to 3.5mm Stereo Jack Metal Adaptor, Gold Plated. You can then add a cable with an in-line mic/remote like this: MEE audio 3.5mm AUX Replacement Headphone/Headset Audio Cable with In-Line Remote, Microphone, and Universal Volume Control for Apple, Android, and more (Black) to make them more useful on the go.
However, this shouldn't put you off buying them. There are no better headphones for this price, period.
