Congrats on the prodigal son returning.

 

Can't wait for a more in-depth analysis.

So I've noticed certain frequencies produce some pretty bad resonating... I hear it most in piano tones and sometimes certain vocals. I think it's near the 1000 hz range. Any time something is within the range, it sounds louder than everything else and is quite fatiguing. Anyone else have this issue? Or any idea how to fix it?

My pair of DT880/250's would give my ears a real reverberating jolt at about 6khz. Nearly buzzed the fillings out of my molars. They are gone and the 600ohm's don't do it.

Have you listened to a series of test tones to actually isolate the frequency more accurately?

Since the highs do tend to mellow out a bit with break-in, Pat makes a good point in asking your hours of use thus far.

Hi guys,

 

I'm still deciding in which direction to go, so i need your help.

My music tastes are very ecletic, is this headphone "good" with all genres of music?

I've tried some Grado's (RS 325is) and didn't like their signature at all  (to the point of headache)

 

(Probably the DT's will go amped with a M^3)

 

Thanks!

Yes - provided you're not a basshead. If you want rumble foundation, look elsewhere.

I use the M^3 with DT880 600ohm and is is audio bliss for me  Goes well with all genres. I am trading my Grado HF-2 and MAD Ear+ HD for a K1000 rig. Now that says something, since I listen to Jazz, rock, and mainly metal. Getting into trance soon though. Now saying I prefer DT880 over Grado HF-2 with metal and rock really is something. People generally say Grado are made for rock. I actually prefer my dt880 because they are less aggressive with better treble and bass (to my ears), which I like.

I'm not a basshead. What do you mean with "rumble foundation"?

(non-native english, sorry)

He means heaps of bass.

The DT880/600 are pretty respectable all-rounders, IMHO.  My experience with the 325i was that they were too treble-prominent.

Yep. I agree with this. I'm a sound signature type of listener. If I like a particular one (though that 'liking' can be fleeting depending on mood, health, etc.), it's fine for all types of music.

So... if I'm wanting the DT880 sig. it'll work for whatever I throw at it. And they do a very good job with everything I hear through them.
