I just added a very small boost to 2K And 4K and everything sounds better. without the boost its a little muffled.

Hey,

 

Sorry for being less active as of late guys. I only hop on Head-Fi every once and a while now as I have moved away from headphones. I've gotten more into retro video games and models now. I won't leave the scene but will be less active. If you need to get in touch with me quicker, you can PM me your e-mail address and we can go from there.

 

As for why I haven't posted new videos on youtube, well I had some big technical issues. I had 4 or 5 videos recorded for my youtube channel, TheZXReviews, but the SD card containing the videos went bad and they were lost. I also had trouble with my PC as it kept crashing.

Hey all,

Pardon, but I'm trying to figure out which model is closest to the MMX 300.  I have one that I absolutely love for gaming, but the DT770 80 that I heard wasn't all that close.  Supposedly the 32 ohm 2005 edition is the closest, but I was hoping that someone has had some experience with the both of them and can confirm it.  Maybe the 32 ohm LE that came out relatively recently?  Just looking for one to listen to around the house and want it to be close.

Thanks

What you didn´t like about dt770 80 ? :-)

post #1325 of 1659

It's been a bit since I've tried them, but the mids seemed more recessed on the 80 compared the the mmx and there seemed to be more bass emphasis on dt770 80s as opposed to a fuller sound across the board (not that the mmx is lacking on bass at all).

post #1326 of 1659
The MMX300 is essentially a DT770 Premium 32ohm. That being said, you can't put it past Beyerdynamic to alter sound signature per unit. They're not the best at being consistent.
post #1327 of 1659

Its not that they purposefully alter sound signature per unit its just manufacturing variances. My guess is that they save the most consistent drivers for the 880 and possibly the 990 because those models suffer much less from variances, particularly the 880. The 880 is built to be much more neutral when compared to the 770 and 990 and its also designed for studio/recording work so using the most neutral and consistent drivers for it would make sense.

 

That said, I've heard that the 770 Pro-80 does have a slight difference in damping materials that's meant to increase the bass slightly. I could be wrong on that, its just something I've heard (anyone know?). I think the best bet would be to go with the 770-Premium-32 or 770-Premium-250.

Do you guys now some site where i could download HQ 24 bit 192 khz music to test ( nothing illigal )

 

For now i just could listen to a game OST  Final Fantasy 13/13-2 and in my opinion those are not mastered well ( a lot sibilance and static )

 

I use my Dt 880 (600) Premium + foobar and musicbee to lsiten to them.

I am thinking of trying out the dt 990 ( 600 ohm) to compare the Soundstage to my 880 (600 ohm).

 

Is it really that wider like Zombie_X shows it ( 3x ).

 

I am a gamer ( no FPS more RPGs ) and while i can pinpoint where the sound comes, i can not say how far it since the sound is only about 2 cm away from my headphone.

 

What are your guys opinion?

hey before I ask anything I want to say I really hate you head fi. and so does my wallet. evil_smiley.gif

 

Would the 880's be a good sidegrade from the 770 Pro/80's or are they too similar sounding (for someone who is not an audiophile) dt880smile.png

post #1335 of 1659

  @Bombaman  I can't tell u anything about the 880s, but I own the 770 80s & 250s and the 990 250's. To my ears the 990s aren't extremely wide. I love them and the soundstage seems to be just outside my cans. I can hear sounds a few inches from my ears but nothing across the room like my speakers provide. I've heard the ultrasones have a surround effect but have no personal experience. Hope this helps :)
