Totally agree! I'm an eclectic listener that jump from metal to classic. Never disappointed from Dt880

I'd get the premium, slightly more comfortable due to less clamp and lighter cable.

That's what it is all about isn't it?

Or am I missing something not listening for the non resonant sonics of Dyna Mat in some other domain...

Do I need remote desktop for this domain or do I already have an account?

And I thought it was "I have dined on Mountain Dew and drank a six pack or two".

Thanks sinnottj! Got it! Should come in tomorrow on Prime! :bigsmile_face:

Edit. 

 

Nevermind, I think I had just had the band adjusted incorrectly.

Hey guys I just got the Mr Speakers Alpha Dogs :) I am super impressed!!

 

Prepare for a headphone showdown between the DT880 and Alpha Dogs tomorrow :]

 

Tonight I am going to keep enjoying these and maybe mess around with the tuning capabilities of the Alpha Dog

Just got my dt880 600ohm and I'm listening to it on my dx90.. High gain 190-220 volume level. Seems to be driven just fine!

The dt880 is so unforgiving to poor records, it is scary! There is also magic in the classical music it plays as people have mentioned. Maybe less magic in vocal but hey it's still quite good! The resolution of it is definitely better than my K545..

Does anyone know a way I can somehow shorten the coiled cable on the DT880 pros 250ohm without having to recable them?

The only logical way to do this is shorten the cable and have the jack re-terminated.

How exactly would I go by doing that?

You would need to cut the cable at the desired length you wish to shorten it, (cut the stock jack off) then send the headphone away to have a new jack terminated on the end. Unless you have experience in soldering (especially thin wiring) I would not be doing it myself.

OK thanks. If you own them could you tell me how long the cable is when it is coiled?

I have the straight cable. Despite searching for you I couldn't find the coiled cable specs. I'm guessing it will be either 2.5m or 3m. I can tell you one thing though, Beyerdynamic DT880 is one of the most addictive headphones I've ever owned. Even though I've heard gear with stronger separation or tighter bass, the Beyers have an addictive trait that makes you never want to stop listening.  Whenever I'm at the computer they're now in contact with my head with very little to no fatigue for long listening sessions.

May I ask why you want to do that? The idea of a coiled cable is that it's already short.

We probably would be able to measure that but I suspect people don't want to... because then who would go out and buy $100 amps anymore? " src="http://files.head-fi.org/images/smilies/wink.gif">

 

And then there's the fact that there really is no such thing as a "flat" frequency response. They have been trying to correct the "flat" frequency response curves as of late...

 

But then the other side of the equation would start to sweat profusely because that would mean another issue: that every single audio equipment we have designed up until yesterday would not have a "flat" frequency response. " src="http://files.head-fi.org/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

 

Such is the state of this hobby.

 



With apologies to The Dragon...

Sure, no headphone has a flat frquency response, and they all have prettty rough looking square wave response.
But surely you're not saying that a good amplifier doesn't have flat frequency response?
It's only flat within the audio bandwidth, and it will have a tolerance, say +/- 0.1 dB, but for all intents and purposes a good amplifier is flat.
And a good analog headphone amplifier will have good square wave response.
