Wow :D so I'm not the only one who loves the sound of the DT880? I've heard HD650s and HD600s at meets and it's not really my sound although I do prefer the HD600 over the HD650 for it's neutrality. I also have modified DT880's so I don't see the bass being missing, it has a very strong impact and presence for an open can with the sparkly realistic treble. I think the fast decay and soundstage of the DT880 is what creates the illusion of space and transparency. I'm listening to Disclosure - Settle in 16bit FLAC and if any of you like house or electronic this album is a must-listen to. I get a nice club sound filling my ears :]

I don't own each of these headphones, but have had plenty of time listening to them all to make fair judgements based on my taste. Also, I will include a few that I heard at the Dallas meet, which though I may not be as familiar with, I believe I can place. Those I have labeled with an asterisk*.


1. Hifiman HE-500

2. Beyerdynamic DT-880 (600 ohm)

3. Sennheiser HD-600*

4. Hifiman HE-400

5. Sennheiser HD-650*

6. AKG K702 Anniv. Edition

7. Beyerdynamic DT-770 (32 Ohm)

8. Grado SR225i*

9. Sennheiser PX 100-II

post #3253 of 5735

1. Shure SRH440

2. Sony MH1C

3. AKG K240 MKII

4. Koss Porta Pro

post #3254 of 5735

Short list, and same company too but here:


1. Ath-es10

2. Ath-es7

post #3255 of 5735

LCD 2.2
Shure 535

Bose qc15

I probabily would've had to file for bankrupcy if i bought all these from Korea or Japan. In the end the high rates for japanese yen vs dollar saved me so much money. (rates not so high anymore though)

I would put LCD 2.2 above HE-500 if it wasn't for comfort issues.
