opinions on the DT770 '05 600 ohm? - Page 7

post #91 of 149
Hey Theo congratulations!!!!
Just wait until they you put 400 hours on them, its just the beginning...
btw, I was doing some comparisons today with the pro900's, the d770's kicked *****!

After a few more days with the DT770/600, I'm beginning to have second thoughts.
The overall sound is a tad too bright for my taste, vocals are sometimes a little recessed, the mids are cold and hard.
A headphone can be too revealing, as this one is. So much crazy detail....

Technically the DT770/600 is superior to my other headphones, but the GMP250 and K270P are more enjoyable. The music is more involving on those two. They connect to the music, instead of analyzing it. More coherency and warmth.

I can't justify the money I paid for the DT770/600, So I I'm thinking about returning them.

Try cutting a circle of felt and putting it in front of the foam. This is an easy, quick, and cheap "mod" you can do which is totally reversible and will not impact your ability to return them. I found this helped significantly - otherwise I too found the treble to be a bit much.

I did put thick felt on the drivers. It helped a bit, but not enough for my taste.

And strangely, the more I burn them in, the more they loose PRaT

From my limited experience with 600 DT770 it seemed as higher Ohmage doesn't have the same positive effect on DT770 as on DT880.

how many hours of burn time have you been able to put on them?

Dunno exactly, perhaps 60 hours with pink and white noise and music.
As said before, the more I burn them in, the less I like them.....

I'm curious if anyone compared the 250 and 600 ohm versions side by side with exactly the same earpads. Because I think the leather earpads instead of velour pads makes the biggest change.
I tried the 600 ohm with velour pads, and they became awfully bright, just like the 250 edition.

I would strongly encourage you not to listen to them again until they have at least 120 hours on them. Seriously. Then let us know what you hear

Okay, I will do so.
Any suggestion what to use for the burn-in?

I would even argue 250+ hours, the best thing to use while burning in is Music with broad dynamic range, a large jazz ensemble or a full classical orchestra.
Good luck, and if you need support, just call!

hah, so burn-in is not always beneficial? I often felt like that when rolling op-amps....it could also be the initial excitement fading out

some op-amps(like the 49720/4562) were pretty unbearable for extended time due to their screaming upper spectrum....bad synergy at work! but for instance the LT1358 gives slightly dark trebles, it's a lot more enjoyable to listen to

as I understand it, these are highly sensitive phones....so feed them properly. maybe that's why tubes supposedly fit them so well

try to not use them until monday, and I'm sure you'll miss their high level of details. the higher you go in the HP chain, the higher quality source you need IMHO.

bassy music! and yes 120H sounds good to me. I didn't think that my DT770/600 changed at all during its first hundred hours, but my previous DT770Pro/250 definitely did.

A couple more days with continue break-in have past.
I took another listen with several kinds of music, and have the same problems.
Right out of the box, I liked them better because they were toe-tapping, which is all gone now.
The overall sound is too bright, cold, sterile and incredible dry for my taste.
They would be the perfect studio headphone IMO. Neutral to the bone.
Headfi-er electropop described it perfectly when he was talking about another closed headphone here.

I guess I like my headphones to have some sort of euphonic coloring.
So these go back to their makers.
I'm done now, no more new headphones. I'm contend with the GMT250 and the K270P, paired to my tube amp.

yes, indeed they're very analytical...well at least you know you don't want studio grade headphones
