I think I'll be doing the unthinkable. Since I haven't used my DT48 in literally months, I may be selling/trading it. I just can't get on board with its sound. I'm still in love with its sound with mono recordings but I have too many headphones I'm not using. I told myself I'd keep it forever just to say I own a pair of the oldest headphones in the world, but I'd hate for it to just gather dust. Maybe I'll buy them back when I have the money, but right now I'd rather use their value for stuff in my planned college setup.

If you want to offer to your DT48 holidays in the South of France, do not hesitate. I swear you that I would take your DT48 with me to the Cannes film festival, that will disorient it a little. (I have just received my accreditation, i'm very proud of it :)

Send me an offer if you want! (This applies to anyone interested)

Hello everybody,


My "old" DT48 Mono 25ohms, has no inscription at all on its black cups. It's serious, doctor?

post #3670 of 4069

Sir, could you post some pics of them, I would like to see the headband and cable design too as they mark stages of their existence.


Isch, PM me how much you want for them, start the ball rolling.

post #3671 of 4069


Thank you Maniacal, one more time.

A first picture, i'll send more later... Jack MONO, the bump-head is new (and not genuine) and the ear-pads are news (not on the picture). Wires: one ear grey & the other is black

Sir you have a early 70's model, the headband design is the same type as the famous J Gordon Holt (Founder of Stereophile Magazine) DT48 @ 200 ohms, the cable is not from that era I would think, it is quite rare just going by that headband.

As you can see (it (or not) a  2 small holes screw of origin and a screw with screwdriver. Absolutely no writing on cups.A screw in the "Y" (that of the bottom) is missing.May I undo cups without risk?

The problem with the Black cupped type (E) is that the letterings are painted on them and falls off unlike the Silver cupped types (Nagra/S). Opening the top covers will not be harmful in any way, the danger comes when after removing the screwed down magnet and exposes the voice coil which has a fine wire to the diaphragm.

:) the question about The "sound signature" is about the DT48, or about The Allman Bros. Band ? it makes nothing, the answer is the same : OH YES !
