Superlux HD672 semi-open headphone. In the world of budget headphones, this is about as good as it gets. Whether used for pure listening pleasure or an extremely affordable studio monitor, the HD672’s sound quality is simply outstanding. Many audio fans will be familiar with some of Superlux past products, like the HD668B and the HD681. Some people have been waiting for a long time for their new models, the HD671 and HD672 to come to market. Well, that time has finally arrived. But there have been some design changes that many will likely find upsetting. Things like the new silicone earpads and the fixed cable, for example. However, if you’re willing to look past those things you’ll be rewarded with an absolutely stellar audio experience.
Just like the HD668B, the HD672 comes in a simple but robust cardboard box. Inside, the headphone is presented simply, secured by a cardboard insert. The bundled accessories consist of a 3.5mm – 6.35mm stereo adapter and a storage pouch. Two flexible spring steel rods make up the main structure of the HD672. These rods attach directly to the earcups, very similar to what we saw on the HD668B. There is a solid plastic joint partway down the rods that adds solidity and prevents the two rods from separating and thus creating pressure where they connect to the earcups. The HD672 has a more traditional type self-adjusting headband, the same as the one on the HD681 and HD681EVO. Embossed into the top of the headband is the Superlux branding. The earcups look similar to the ones found on the HD681EVO. They’re made entirely of a sturdy and lightweight plastic. There are 3 large slits acting as vents and just inside of those is a perforated section that surrounds the centre part of the earcups. The earcups pivot slightly to automatically adjust to the shape of your head. The clamping force created by the flexible spring steel rods is minimal, so the headphone doesn’t press in uncomfortably on your head. The headband is very thin but I found it to be super comfortable on the top of my head. The Superlux HD672 has a very balanced sound signature that leans towards neutral.Being a semi-open back headphone promises a sizable soundstage and here the HD672 does not disappoint. It presents a very open feeling stage that is not necessarily expansive but is incredibly natural and unforced.
