Sorry I didn't see this until now. Basically, the HD600 have more bass rolloff than the  DT250 because they are open. The HD600 also has a different treble signature than the DT250, which has a lower treble level overall compared to the rest of the frequency spectrum. They really don't sound alike at all, at least not to me. Maybe people say they sound alike because they are comparing them to completely different headphones, but all of my headphones are fairly neutral so...
To me the DT250 has pretty strong sub bass, but I guess it depends what you are comparing it to. Also, different batches of these headphones sound incredibly different; the first pair I got had much different treble and sounded a bit more V shaped overall.
The DT250 has pretty well defined subbass, at least in the 250 ohm version.
I didn't expect anything from them; they were my first non cheap headphones a long time ago. To be fair I haven't owned anything in that price range since, but there are probably better options for not a lot more. I don't really care so much about absolute flatness in headphones as I care that the headphones sound realistic and natural. I have used headphones that simply don't render instruments or other audio realistically; cymbals don't sound like they should or vocals...
Nope, my headphones are HD600's, K702's, and DT250's, all of which are intended to be "flat" and "neutral," which is what I look for in a headphone (they all do this to varying degrees as nothing is really flat). For some reason, people describe the M50's, HD280's, and SRH 840's as "flat" or "neutral;" I have personally owned all 3 of them and I assure you that they sound absolutely nothing alike, and sound nothing like any of my other headphones which are also "neutral."...
I had a pair of HD280's for a number of years and I was pretty disappointed with their sound. Closed headphones in general tend to have a lot of issues with sound, regardless of brand. You either get something with weird treble, or you get boomy midbass.
Hmm might be interested in this, although it would be a 2ish hour drive for me.
I gave up on this after getting HD600's which have a warmer sound anyway, so I am keeping the AKG's stock to maximize soundstage as I mostly use them for gaming now.
  The 80 ohm allegedly sounds a bit different than the 250 ohm; many people say the 250 ohm has better bass extension than the 80 ohm. It definitely has better bass extension than any of my open headphones.  Anyway, I got my replacement pair of DT250's and they have a noticeably different sound signature... The original pair had an obnoxious peak somewhere around 1 khz that made voices sound very annoying sometimes. The new pair doesn't seem to have that, and it also seems...
Are you talking about the 80 or 250 ohm? My impressions of the 250 ohms are 100% the opposite of yours... I find them to have emphasized treble and very good bass extension. I am comparing them to open backed neutral headphones like the hd600 though, so if you only have something like the m50 as reference I could see why you could say they lacked bass and treble...
