Indeed I clearly said it was just my opinion. But they are not that idiosyncratic, and lots of people share my opinion. But I have heard the W5000 and the HD650 may times - in fact I owned the HD650 for a long time. Just out of curiosity, have you heard the DX1000?

Again, in YOUR opinion I owned the K271S, and was not impressed at all. But this is just differences of opinion.

DT770 velour earpads on the K271S isn't a good idea, gives slightly recessed and unnatural sounding mids.
It helps a bit to cover the little holes at the back of the velour earpads with tape. Gives great results on the GMP250.
well, I don't see it working.

let us know what you think of the Pro900, but it'd appear to be the Pro750...w/ more bass

Yes, not my cup of tea at all.

to finetune my statement about classical music, I'd say that the recordings I have of ensembles are just plain bad! putting 2 microphones in a M/S couple and hoping to record each instrument w/ high accuracy is simply illusional....you barely capture the room ambience, maybe there's some better recordings around...I'll keep looking

on properly recorded classical w/ many microphones, it sounds perfect! violins don't sound electric like on the DT770/Pro, and just VERY true to life w/ a fantastic stereo stage(yes, angle the drivers ffs!)

and w/ great stereo mixing/mastering, it sounds simply mind blowing...like this CD, which almost sounds binaural: Amazon.com: Portrait of Genius: Ravi Shankar: Music

This is my first and last comment on the Pro900.
They are by far the worst sounding headphones I ever heard.
Metallic and sibilant highs, thin and recessed mids, bloated and overbearing bass.
A sort of HD201 with DT770/80 bass.
But if I had to choose, I rather would take one of those than this misfit.
Just plain weird and awful sounding.
Yuk.....

worse than the Pro750?

lemme call Peter Pinna to check if your Pro900 wasn't actually faulty, and if you did screw the cable properly

One of the first headphones I dumped (back in 2005) was k271s - and never wanted to see/hear again. This is from someone who had had years of classical vocal training, string bass, and guitar (and a little Piano). I DO like Joe Grado HP-2, John's RS-1/flats for Jazz (maybe upcoming HF-2), various versions of Darths. My general listening is most often dt990/600, and k340 modded is strictly for Symphonic/Opera...............but, all of these choices are also dependent on the amp choices.

hah...the only phone pretty much everyone agrees upon is the Pro750 from what I've gathered

many ppl rave about it on here, but each time I ask ppl what they thought about it...they just trash it(I kept mine 1 day before returning it )

anyway, Andrew_Woot says the DT770/600 is mid-fi at best, and Skylab told me that he prolly likes his 770/600 a bit more than his 880/600.

I like mine, but don't play poor recordings on it...it's very unforgiving(especially w/ the LME49720HA )

I've discussed it w/ a friend of mine who's got a cd3k and exclusively plays classic, and he told me that if you're used to amplified music unamplified classical music will sound dull...especially ensembles. so I got my reply I guess

hopefully Tiemen will take the plunge, and try his aviation leather pads on it

maybe it's possible to drill holes at the back, like QQQ did?

Did he really say that? That's quite surprising as they have so much in common but 600Ohm DT880 takes to a completely different level, sort of supercharged DT770, HDTV versus VHS if I may say. Thus in my book 600Ohm DT880 belongs to a higher tier along with HD650, W5000, AD2000, SA5000, K702...
And DT770 is more comparable to K271S, DT48, ATH-A900, DT250, Denon D2000, HFI-780...

Can't, have ruined one of them, and sold the other with the Q40....
So if I order the DT770/600, I have to decide to buy them on Amazon.de with the stock velour pads, or directly from Beyer with the Manufaktur leather earpads.
And then I have to decide wether I'll buy a tube headphone amp, or not.
Damn, I wish I was rich

What I said was there are WAYS in which I prefer the DT770/600, which is true. And there are ways I prefer the DT880. But the 770 and 880 in 600 ohm are not that different, IMO.

well, they sound WAY better w/ the leather manufaktur pads...these were actually manfactured and engineered for the DT770/Premium

maybe the JMoney pads sound identical, only Skylab could tell.

nah, I just made it up







yes, he did. and QQQ more or less proved that the 770/880 share the same drivers IIRC...they also share the same headband, cable etc etc

I'm glad you call my DT770/600 VHS! how about Betamax?

I see, can you please elaborate a bit in which areas you found DT770 excels DT880.

Well, for one, the bass. I prefer the DT770's bass response versus the DT880, which I still find to be a little light in the bass.

I assume that would be with leather pads, as with velour they are pretty close with DT880 actually pulling ahead.
