However I still think they are a bit overpriced. Still for most casual customers they are the answers.

Hmm, I find the DNA's sound better than the Vektr. The Diamond Tears is definitely the best sounding Monster headphone though, I can't see anyone disagree unless they are true bassheads.

 

I find the Vektr way too muddy. I'd put the on the same level as the Studios redface.gif

I hope you don't mean the dt770 lol. What equipment have you tried them with?

post #9333 of 11312
Yeah the DT770 80 Ω with the Objective 2. Severely recessed midrange and flobby bass are not qualities of a good-sounding headphone in my book. The mids were almost as bad as the Ultrasone PRO900 but thankfully weren't ssssssssibilantttt.

I'm rather disappointed to see Beats on Giorgio Moroder in this video, especially after rocking V-MODA M-100s at his DJ gig in New York.

miceblue, I agree with you, those Beyer's are horrible. It is good to find somebody hear as I hear. I wouldn't put them on the same level as Beats but yeah I agree they are pretty bad.

post #9336 of 11312
Sheesh, quit bashing the dt770 lol. Beyers typically need an otl tube system behind them to shine. I know what you mean though, I can hardly stand mine out of mediocre sources. Not saying objective2 is bad, just not right for the dt770
post #9337 of 11312

I agree. Solid state is good for low voltage, high-current headphones, which most Beyers are not.

Blue Beats, of course, for the ladies.

What a waste! I could have bought a Sony MDR-1R and with a lot of spare money for other gadgets with that much cash..

I second that, hd 600 and a half decent and a pretty rockin sound card.

 

People have too much money and not enough brains... I sort of wish I had that problem too, 1 out of the two just doesn't cut it.

Money moving up the chain from stupid to smart people is one of the things that makes the world go 'round. tongue.gif

I can (sort of) understanding having two pairs of the same headphone if you really love it - one for home and one for work, or having a backup in case somethng goes wrong. But having more than 2 pairs of the same headphone is just a stupid waste of money.

I'm quite sure most of headfi "wasted" more money than this guy just on cables.

And hey, it just goes to show beats is more of a fashion statement. Maybe it's a girl matching the colors to her clothes...we buy loads of those too in different colors tongue.gif
