Bang for the buck, I guess?
Karmo7, 07.03.2020
Bought them for only monitoring live recording levels at church.
First thing i did was to compare them to my ATH-M50x. Here are my thoughts:

Build quality:
Nothing no praise unfortunately. Manufacturing marks, cheap looking thin cables, cheap-feel plastic, ugly carrying pouch and "leather" headband pads.

Comfort:
These are huge! Pads feel stiff and earcups can only move few degrees to adapt over your ears. But this can be a good thing when you happen to have slightly bigger ears.

About the sound:
I found them very bass heavy, but bass is quite tight and defined. But for my taste, too much bass.
Low-midrange is quite "missing" and what's left is muddy.
Upper-midrange is good! Vocals sound very clean, nice and present through these!
There is a very audible presence boost say, about 5-8kHz range. It gets a little annoying and tiring when listened on high volume for some time.
Unfortunately above these frequencies there is mud again. Highest frequency details, often referred as "air" or "shine", are poorly defined and sound dull.
They are not very sound proof either. Outside bleeds in and otherwise. Wouldn't recommend for tracking.
One more thing, compared to ATH-m50x, they sound "distant". While ATH feels really close, in your face, HD-669 creates "distance" between the the ears and the sound. Can't say if it a good or a bad thing.

Power hungry!
They do need a lots of power to drive them. When plugged straight to smartphone, you cant get anywhere near loud without distortion. But my MacBook Pro preamp did just fine.

FOR THE PRICE I would say amazing sound! Useable for a lots of things, but for serious mixing or everyday music listening, please consider something else. In blind test I would have guessed them in 50-60 euro price range by the sound.

Superlux HD-669 - amazing value.
Spoobler, 13.09.2013
Like I said in other review of the Superlux HD-660's - I bought these Superlux HD-669's to replace a pair of much loved Sennheiser HD-25's that finally died after ten years of heavy use. The Superlux HD-669's were recommended on a few websites (headfi.org was one of them I think) that said these headphones were basically unsung heroes and were punching well above their weight.

I took the chance and bought these, not expecting them to match the EUR300ish pair of Sennheiser's but figuring they could come in useful anyway. They are more than useful - I love them. The low end is enveloping and the mids/highs are as detailed and clear as I could want.

Like the HD-660's their downside is their size and poor noise isolation, but to me these are non-issues really. As a testament to them, I recommended them to an engineer friend (who now heads a sound department on a major US tv show and he could not believe the sound. He then asked a producer friend, with some big projects to his name, to mix something with them, without showing them what they were and he who loved them - and that was before he knew the price.

So in short - don't look elsewhere if size and isolation aren't a concern. Quality all round.
