Sure I can do a direct comparison right now if you want. I have all three on hand as we speak. What did you want to know exactly besides the midrange?
Between all three headphones, the HD600 has the most midrange while the T70 is right below it and the DT880 is least. The HD600 is quite lush, the T70 is full but somewhat lacking, and the DT880 is nice and sweet but lacks overall body. The DT880 has a very detailed midrange but it is somewhat recessed, though it's better than the 250Ohm DT880. The T70 has a similar midrange to the DT880 but fuller and more detailed and resolving, but not like the HD600's midrange. It will still sound thin in direct comparison.
oh, that is really nice. great, quick reply!
I'm mainly curious about the transition from the midrange to upper mids and treble. a song I would love to have a few notes about is Tool - Lateralus. how the drums compare with the HD600, tightness/quality etc. and the vocals, where he raises his voice, is it very noticable that the volume goes up a lot? or is it still drowned by treble/bass at his highest point, as I found the DT880 to do? I'm very concerned that they might sound as distant as the DT880..
and well, I didn't find the DT880 to be any harsh so I assume I won't find these to be very harsh either?
also another question - T5p with Velours, tried this? would that have any better/more forward mids than the T70? and just better overall? or which of the closed Beyers would you say might fit what I am asking for best?
thanks a lot!
edit: oh and by the way is there any popular headphone that you know that compares very well in sound signature?
