Mid range is recessed??? Huh? The dt250 is more recessed than the dt48. He should compare them to the k702 some time...they sound pale and thin in the mids compared to the dt48. Try Nat and Natalie Cole singing "Unforgettable". Not normally my favorite type of music, but those two voices sound unbelievable with the dt48. Joni Mitchell can really wow you with them too...not to mention Norah Jones. Haven't tried Linda Ronstadt yet, but my girlfriend has some of her CD's.
Can't believe some people like Andrew think the DT48 mid range is 'average.' & one mermber actually said the mid range is recessed.. I don't get it.. I don't expect everyone to like or love the DT48, but those comments are pretty silly... Maybe the R10 mids are just ok, & the DT770 are bass lite.. To get better mids, meaning realistic, clear, & neutral, you would need to spend at least a grand, probably more.. Talking about dynamic headphones..
Theres a Natlie cole song that I never liked until I listened to them with the DT48.. The Piano, instruments, & here voice all sounds as realistic & being there as I'm typing this.. I actually like the song because of the DT48.. Forgot the title.. 1978 R&B hit.. But the piano at the start is eye watering worthy.. & her voice synergizes very well with the DT48.. The best I heard besides Linda Rodstad, & Donna Summer.. It's the type of recording you show off to impress your friend.. No compression at all, or very little at the very least.. Very well recorded in a good studio setting.
