Pros: above average sound stage, pleasant signature, detachable cable, strong impact, velour pads
Cons: needs some power!
The overall signature strikes me as balanced, however the mids are slightly forward, and it is slightly warm. The detail and sound stage on these headphones are well above their price range. The tone is not quite laid-back, nor is it aggressive, so you are still able to lively enjoy your music, while not being fatigued after long listening sessions. This headphone, while rated at 32ohms, does require a fair amount of juice to run at its fullest. It pairs very nicely with desktop tube amps, however it can still be run on portable players.
The pads are velour, the cable is detachable, the backs are open, cups are circumaural, and the houses are pivoting. As a home headphone, it hits all of the buzz words! The design makes it practical, good value and comfortable!
The DR150 is an extremely good value headphone! Often companies that aren't "house brands" fall into the background, and their great products aren't tried by the majority of the market. Whathifi gave these headphones, as well as the DR50 and DR100 5/5 stars, and I would definitely agree with them! These headphones are at a very low price point, yet it competes with top-notch headphones like the DT880! The DT880 is another open-backed headphone with a fairly balanced sound signature, and for a fraction of the price... This is an amazing deal! Go to a headphone store near you to demo these! It's a must!
