The DT100 velour ear pads do fit.

They alter the sound, but opinions differ if that's a good thing or not.

The velour pads make the bass tighter and the overall sound faster. But the soundstage becomes smaller. They are IMO more comfortable.

Maybe you can order them along and try out yourself. The pads you don't like can easily be sold here on Head-fi with little loss of money.

Strange, fitting velours had the opposite effect you describe on the HD25. It became somewhat more mellow, and the heights dulled a bit. I'll read up some more and perhaps order on monday, thanks to the 30days return policy I can easily send them back if they do the wrong thing. 

 

Edit: they are ordered, feedback will follow. Now I have never actually "burned in" my headphones and so far noticed no differences with use, but somewhere in here it says that these might need it. Any Ideas as to how actually I go about and get them their "burn-in"? Plug them in the radio, crank up the volume and wait a week?

I've had these cans for about three years now and never looked back. The original pleathers had this nasty habit of going sticky after a few months in this tropical climate and switched to the dt-100 velours since a few months back.

 

While I miss the slam and deep bass with the pleathers, I kinda prefer the slightly balanced sound signature now since I listen to plenty of orchestral soundtracks and instrumental works. Currently running these straight out of a udac2 but maybe might find a decent amp soon...

THREAD REVIVAL!!!

 

Here is my latest cable mod. Enjoysmily_headphones1.gif

 

Dt150 recable

 

The new cable makes the sound so much more open. The soundstage is even wider than my DT800 600ohms. It has a bit of a hall effect to it making classical music sound awesome. Also the mids and highs are more prominent now making the sound more neutral which i like.

I was just thinking yesterday if only I had some soldering skill I would make myself a cable for my beloved DT 150's.  I am sure a new cable would take them to a new level.  Congrats Phandrew!!

Thanks heaps for the link and that's a really generous offer, but I have plans on Saturday unfortunately. More communities should be made up of people like you though. I'll have to make my way to addicted to audio and have a listen soon though. What're you going there for, looking to upgrade?

Received my pair of HD650 with 50h of use on it.

 

I can honestly say my recabled DT150 sound quality is almost the same as the HD650 but not at the same level. Only major thing i can tell the difference atm is the bass on the HD650 is more powerful than the DT150. Thinking also of recabling the HD650 with SPC cables like my other headphones.

Congrats, and enjoy! :gs1000smile:

I hadn't used my DT 150 for a while, but Iast week they became my primary headphones again.

I can't believe how good they sound, and i cannot think of a closed headphone with a wider soundstage.

Each time I put them on, it becomes clear why the professionals have used them for ages.

How many legendary records were recorded with those? Countless.

No bullcrap, no marketing, no hype, only pure quality: amazing sound, great comfort, reliability and solidity.

The bass on Arcade Fire's new single "Reflektor" is... wow.

Amen to this, it's so true!

How is the bass DT770 250ohm vs these? 

 

I want a pair of headphones with well extended bass now. Will these satisfy my sub bass needs?

post #239 of 590

I suppose DT150 will suit better your taste. These got better control of bass to me, than DT770. And do not have these annoying sibbilances of DT770 with some music tracks.

post #240 of 590

Hmm could get the AKG K550 for the same price as these. I think i'm still going to pick these as my next cans. Though I liked the K550's a fair bit.
