Why I don't care if I look like a dork...

Pros: sound quality, soundstage, isolation, easy to drive, detail, balance, durable, user replacable parts, long straight cable, musicality, bass

Cons: not too classy, loooong cable, clamping force

I'm really only half a year into my serious headphone journey, which began when I got a pair of Shure SRH-840 and Grado 125i at around the same time, along with a solid custom headphone amp (which never ceases to amaze me) from my brother-in-law.  Both of those original headphones are gone now, but the journey has taught me a lot about my own tastes, pushing me ever closer to a pair of headphones that I would be happy with for the long term.   That pair is the Beyerdynamic DT-150.   Before starting, I'll go through a few things that I've learned in this journey, and how the DT-150 fits into those lessons:   1.

If I paid full price, I would be happy. I gave them only 4 stars for sound only because I assume there are better ones out there.
