The Superlux HD-562′s arrived late last week! I spent the weekend with these and I have to say, they’re my new favorite of the Superlux headphone line. They’re comfortable to wear for long periods of time, they’re lightweight (I don’t feel like they’re swallowing my head) and they have a very, very well-balanced sound quality. While the bass isn’t quite as heavy in these as in our HD-668B’s, I ran several tracks through these that ordinarily rattle my car speakers and I was quite impressed with the performance of the HD-562.
These are packaged beautifully in a retail-ready box (if you’re into Koi you’ll like the box) and they include a standard 48″ cable, a pair of velvet ear pads and an adaptor. The HD-562′s are shipping in case quantities of 12 and are available in black, only.
I think I’m going to swipe the sample pair and tell management that aliens visited me and abducted the headphones. Wish me luck!
