Superlux HD-562 headphones : The headband WILL break, replaceable with HD25 headband

If i nitpick then the requency response lacks a bit of treble and the headband clamps very tight on an adult head but for the price it’s adequate and perfectly fine for my son (who i bought them for) and his smaller head who can now emulate dad and his sennheiser hd25 headphones.

Edit: the headband on the first pair i received broke on the first day of use. The replacement pair broke within two months for the same reason. The coolest thing is that you can replace the broken headband with a spare hd25 headband for £35. They will be just a tiny bit more loose on the sliding mechanism but the clamp is just right and it’s totally useable. If the superlux drivers fail you can just buy hd25 drivers and you essentially morphed your superlux into hd25s which is pretty damn cool how interchangeable the parts are for the 2 headphones. This review is for people who are torn between the sennheiser hd25 and superlux’s copy of them. Or just people looking to buy these in general. I can compare these to the sennheiser hd25 side by side as i own both at the moment. The look of the superlux is extremely similar to the hd25 however the earcups are bulkier and stick out more to the side on the superlux which doesn’t look as appealing on the head if you are concerned about looks. The build quality is not as nice as the sennheisers but for the price that’s to be expected.

Not as good as the real thing but at a 5th of the price great for my work.

A little smaller earcups than i had anticipated but great quality .

First things first – these are not 100% the same sound as hd25but for the price they’re a steal. Basically you’re getting about 80-90% of the hd25 sound for a fifth of the price comfortwise they’re pretty much as tight and clampy as the real mccoy and in all honesty build quality isn’t that bad. The only problem build wise was that when i opened my box the sticky leatherette pads from inside the headband had come off and stuck to the card of the packaging. Not a massive problem but would have been nice if the supplier had bothered to open the box to check before sending. In all of you want some hd25 ish phones on the cheap you won’t be disappointed as long as you’re not expecting them to be exactly the same. Great for jobs where you don’t want to risk getting your ‘proper’ phones damaged or lost.

Great for djing as loud but handle with care as these will break easily.

For the price these headphones are surprisingly good a little plasticy but sound is very good , tight on the ears but that was sorted with a bit of hot water on the head band and reshaped well worth the money , would recommend.

These have surpassed my expectations for the money, if your after a closed back headphone don’t hesitate. I find them more comfortable than sennheiser momentums.
