Ah yes, the old Pace, Rhythm and Timing thing... I never quite understood how that applied, but I'll take your word for it.  

 

As for mids. Ok, we'll see. Got the D5K today. Gave them a preliminary listen while here, at work, and am quite impressed. Much more listening over this 3-day weekend!

EDIT: darn! there I go again continuing this OT!

I have the DT880/600 and enjoy their crisp signature, but whenever i listen to techno, trance or any kind of category that requires adequate bass, i feel as if the 880 do not deliver. 

 

I already tried the DT990, but i felt the bass on those were a bit too much for my tastes. I really wanna love Beyerdynamic headphones and give them a chance before i move on to another brand, but I'm running out of which models to try and which would be the best for my situation.

Stick on the J$ leather pads to add a little more warmth and bass to the 880/600s takes the edge off the sometimes sibilant highs too.

I have a set of the Beyer leather pads and they do a great job with the bass. Get them direct or get them from Drew at Moon Audio.

I have to say the dt880's really sing on my setup, ref5/Roc, loving it!  The bass is almost just right for me with this setup.  On well recorded music, sounds amazing.  

post #516 of 10527

Same for me.  The DT880/600 bass is just right, if not tipped a bit toward being prominent with some recordings.  Depending on my tube choices, the bass can be downright prodigious.

The DT880 also behaves very well in balanced mode (directly from the Buffalo DAC). The bass goes deeper and overall the sound is cristal clear.

Hey guys.. Going to buy my 880's today on Amazon.com can anyone recommend a good Mic to go with them? I talk on vent 24/7 so need something nice.

post #519 of 10527

The Zalman clip-on mic is the standard issue mic around. It's cheap and gets good reviews.

post #520 of 10527

I use the Zalmac clip on as well. Works brilliantly. Also, I too was looking at a recable, going balanced with the Protector, since I need a transportable setup.

 

Any suggestions for balanced? Was thinking of Silver dragon balanced from Moon Audio.. do let me know what you think, and for those that have already gone balanced, what cables did you'll use.

post #521 of 10527

Balanced is great with the Beyers. The main benefits are an even bigger soundstage and deeper bass. I am listening mainly to the balanced outs from my Buffalo these days. I think I like it better than my Goldpoint. Go figure!

 

Here is mine:

I made the cable myself. It was made out of OFC that I butchered out of the Mogami 2534

Ah sweet! Unfortunately I have absolutely no experience with DIY, and since my family came down from India, no time to learn it too.

I just received my DT880/600s from beyerdynamic.  My question before I listen to them is about the personalization - does beyerdynamic always add "600 ohms" above what you ask for personalization?  So instead of what I ordered:

 

MJS

 

it reads

 

600 ohms

MJS

i dunno.

maybe if you only request one line of text, they add that on the other line???

post #525 of 10527

Seems highly unlikely...
