I have 'em, and I really like 'em!

But I just believe there's something better out there.

I am loving the suggestions, the insights and the information! Thanks!

First, you are wrong. Again, once you gain some more experience with headphones you'll realize it was a bit foolish to portray the DT770 as excellent phones with natural bass. They are good headphones possessing bass which is very fun and enjoyable, but it is by no means accurate and natural.

I'm beginning to love this whole wrong thing.

But that's just it, that's what we have been trying to explain to you. You do need to listen more...to other headphones. You can choose not to trust the impressions of those who make claims that directly contradict your own experience, but first you need to gain that experience to begin with. Right now you're making the decision to choose the ignorance is bliss option, and if you're going to continue to portray the DT770's like this(your words taken from the locked A700 thread)"

Excellence includes:
Natural tones that sound like the real instruments (especially with acoustic instruments.)
Bass that is extended and powerful, without the slightest trace of muddiness or "bloat", but which does not overpower the other frequencies.
Immense soundstage combined with pinpoint imaging.
Midrange that sounds live, like the vocalists are right in the room.
Detail so extreme that I hear new things in recordings I have heard thousands of times.
Extreme transparency, like listening through the phones, not into them.

The DT770s have all of these properties, and that is why they are excellent. (The DT150s have all of these properties plus a slight rolloff in the "sibilance" region, making them more forgiving of bad recordings.)


then there are going to be people looking to correct you all day long. As The Monkey said, we have to do our part to make sure that new members to our forum don't go and spend their hard earned money on a headphone that may ultimately not be what they are looking for based on false impressions. You only hear the DT770's as having those traits now, because you lack overall headphone experience. And like I said in that other thread, I'll give you that they have bass that is extended and powerful but, as I said above, it is by no means accurate and natural.

I have never once posted anything that could be considered "spam", so stop your slander.
Regarding that first sentence, LMFAO!! I tell that to my girlfriend all the time but she still doesn't believe me.

Regarding the second, people are referring to your broken record DT770 posts as spam because of the arrogant condescending know-it-all tone that pervades each and every one of them. I mean seriously, you just used the words "I have never been wrong"! For real man, that's just silly. You refusing to consider that others may know, and they do, more about the traits of the DT770 than you, shows an extreme lack of confidence on your part.

Holy Crow!

Just saw a reference to Ultrasone's Edition 9 closed-back headphones...

$1800!

Are they the holy grail?

I want some! lol

If you have access to Grado headphones in your area, I'd try some.

When used with the Grado Flats pads, Grados can have some very deep and impactful bass. It's quite surprising how deep the bass on my 325i goes when there is a bass drum hit in orchestral music.

That's about all I can offer. The 880 pro can go very deep but it seems the quantity is not as high as you would like. Besides, you have them already.

Mostly certainly not percussion, would piss off the drummer for sure if the bass player thought that...
Bass is a musical instrument just like any other musical instrument and can be used any way the musician chooses. There have been bands that have used bass as a lead instrument so there is no such thing as it must be used a certain way.

See, that's another "ugh" pet peeve for me: people equating price to performance. BOSE gets so many suckers because of that.

Well in all fairness, some of my favorite headphones include

K1000, SR-007, RS-1, GS-1000, ED9 etc.

Not the cheapest.

Do you even read what you type. Do you even remember what you typed previously? Do you have short term memory loss? I really wonder how you formulate thoughts in your head. Is this real?

This is a joke right? It must be, has to be, I hope it is, because if it isn't, that's one disturbing thought process to have.

I'd say the majority of my outlandish postings can be perceived as me having a little fun, but you... just wrong.

You might also want to look up what slander means. You do plenty of damage to yourself, no help from me needed.

Yes, yes, no, yes, no. In that order.

Some of you guys claim to be trying to help newbies. Steering them away from excellent headphones at a reasonable price by telling lies about them is not being helpful.
post #102 of 246
And some of the newbies have listened to 3 headphones, bought one, and go around the forum recommending that headphone to every newbie they encounter.

You don't know how tempted I am right now to call somebody out on that (I dunno if he posted in this thread yet).
post #104 of 246
Haha just 1? I can name you a couple, and even more mysterious is that its always that bloody AD700, DT770 and K701. Must have something to do with a electromagnetic field these headphones make. Also the 7 seems the commen integer.
post #105 of 246
Of the five headphones I have owned recently, three came highly recommended on this site. One of those (DT150), absolutely lived up to the hype. The other two (K701 and D5000) were each, in their own way, disappointing.
The two remaining phones were an absolutely outstanding pair that unfairly get no love here (DT770) and a pair that are good for the price but cannot compete with more expensive models (HD280.)
