I become a proud owner of DT880/600 today. Thanks to the great work of Zombie_X.

The headphone sounds pretty awesome already without break in.

I keep listening to the HDtracks that I have (Bruckner 7, Mahler 1,6,7) for the whole day and it gives me great joy!

Cheers everybody!

I am kind of on the fence between these cans and Sennheiser HD650.  For individuals who have had both, anyone care to comment on what aspects of both cans you liked, and why you ultimately chose the beyers?

I need to move to a new flat this Sunday and all of my rigs are packed in a box (except the laptop and the dr. dac2 dx). The Burson is currently auditioning by my audiophile brother. I will post my thoughts when I get the rigs back. Can't wait.....

I actually chose both. Comfort wise, no comparison the DT880/600s rule the roost here. The clamp on the HD650s was just too much for my melon.

 

Sound wise they are both awesome allrounders. I did prefer the bass and treble of the HD650s, but the mids on the DT880s. Sound stage they were about equal.

 

It would also depend on the amp that you are planning on using. Both are great and if you can listen to both before spending your money, that would be ideal.

Mod them a la the closeback mod. You'll have a DT880 with the strengths of the HD650.

I have been holding the recabling of my manufaktur DT880/600 until now.  My new Decware CSP2+ is so revealing and the difference between my Mogami wire W2534 recabled one and stock one becomes quite significant that I am seriously considering recabling the stock one.

 

The difference is smoother high, more body over the entire spectrum, and more accurate imaging.  From you guys' experience, it seems the ZXAC's offering of Nucleotide UPOCC copper cable may be a good chice.  Funny thing is that the advange listed in ZXAC's webpage matches almost exactly what I get from Mogami wire.  This makes me wonder if Nucleotide UPOCC offers another step up from Mogami.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions?  Thanks!

You are about to replace your copper cable with copper cable. Think about it. ;-) Mogami has some very good wire offerings and a lot of people really like the effect it has on their headphones. I recall a head-fier who has been making lots of cables for other people saying that he couldn't tell a difference between Mogami and (iirc) Vampire wire. He was very impressed.

No.  I am going to replace the stock cable with UPOCC cable and keep the Mogami recabled one.  I have TWO DT880/600s.

That is the question in my previous post.  It seems to me that my Mogami recabled DT880 already give me the "same" SQ improvement described in Nucleotide page.  However, the level of improvement may be more (I wonder).  I guess only someone has heard both may give more confident answer.  Since I already has a Mogami DT880 so I am tempted to get a different cable for the other DT880 and ZXAC's price seems reasonable to me.

 

Has someone tried SilverDragon?  That was my previous candidate.  I'll go DIY route if I choose SilverDragon.
