I know it is like a curse word for a lot of people. Things are starting to really open up on the bass front. So whether it is me, burn in or magical fairy dust I don't know. I am not about to judge either side as I am not a very scientific person either. I am an Aquarius we are to artsy fartsy for science. dt880smile.png

Besides burn in, it's more important to let the new ear pads settle in to the shape of your head. So do the burn in while they are on your head normal_smile%20.gif

You already own the 990 Pros, so you already have what I feel is the strongest bass on open cans that don't sound like crap.

The 990/600 has the least amount of bass impact out of all the 990s, that's for sure. You would be better off with the 250ohm Premiums if you want the bass, bit less clamp than the Pros. The 250ohm drivers are the most bassy.

yea, I LOVE the bass impact out of my dt 880 pro 250, and I'm hoping the Pro 900 will give me more of the Mid Bass that I've come to love from teh 880 [I am worried the Sub Bass won't be as good as the 880, seeing as teh Mid Bass hump is there but psh I got xb 700's for sub]

 

Still im 99% sure I'll like the 990 pro 250's with edm [seeing as I already enjoy the dt 880] I do use foo bar eq as well as a Hardware eq when I listen to emd. The Un amped and Un eq'd Dt 880 bass is lame for edm [I ALWAYS listen to jazz an OST with NO eq or bass boost and the bass is magical]

 

non the less, my indeed g3 has a +8 sub bass, that on top of a +5 from foo bar [I eq everything dwn 4, eq sub bass [50hrz] +1 [OH NO] and then to +0 [70-150] so forth an so on]

 

Ethier way my point is with Bass Boosting and Eq [which I bass boost and Eq my Xb 700's the same as my dt 880s [which ironically works better than I thought]

 

Anyways, guys Eq and Hard Ware boost your dt cans b4 u complain! In addition listen to some Nujabes on a Dt 880 [without bass boost] his tracks are always PERFECT for me! Nice tight bass not to much or too little... just magical! I also listend to L-Wiz Mexter Dorgan on the Dt 880 pro 250... with eq and bass boost amp... it was also magical! The bass line was SUPER DUPER awesome TIGHT... very cool.

 

That being said though, depending on my mood, sometimes I like Xb 700 closed fart cannon bass, other times I like my dt 880s open bass

 

In addition I've heard a few ppl mention a good DAC, can help with lacks of bass to [mostly in tighting the bass more than anything]

 

either way, in a week ill have a nice Dac, an 880 a 990 [and hopfully a 770 pro 80 in a month] so I'll be able to come back here an share my experinces with these 3 hopefully awesome cans :D

Has anyone compared the DT770 LE w/ the DT770 600ohm?

post #1371 of 1655

Not back to back, and I only had a brief listen with the LE, but my first thought was the LE had more bass rumble.

The 600 ohm 770 can be inconsistent. I bought two of them, a month apart, and one was bass-heavy and one was bass-light. The bass-light one was a bit sibilant too which I didn't like. I've heard of other bass-light 600 ohm Premiums. The one I currently have sounds more like what people describe the Pro-80 as. Plenty of bass. In fact, too much really, which is good sometimes but not all the time which is why I got my 880s. ;)

 

I'd say.. if you want bass punch go with the LE because I think you've got a decent chance of getting a 600 ohm Premium that's bass-light in comparison. I really love my bass-heavy 770-Premium-600 but I get some bass distortion at high volumes and the low end is a little much for some genres and recordings, eating up too much of the mids. Now with the 880 + EQ I don't really need the 770s any more unless I need a bit more isolation. In fact... now that I think about it.. you could probably get the same sound with any of the 770s + the right EQ. ;)

I talked to a guy on reddit who bought a brand new pair of 600 ohm DT 880 Pros from a Jaben in Taiwan about 30 days ago. Looks like they're still selling them and probably still making some. I haven't seen any available here in the states or in Europe. Has anyone seen these available anywhere?

All jaben sells the DT880/600 ohm Pro version, here is mine . I guess jaben make custom order for the DT880/600 ohm Pro version

post #1375 of 1655

I just recently purchased the DT770 Pro 250, and I also purchased the EDT770S pleather pads (in transit).  What should I expect from them?  Better isolation and tighter bass compared to the velour pads?  I found the velour pads leaked a bit too much sound, and I'm looking for better isolation.

The pair I got was bass-light, too. That's probably why the owner was selling them. I was very pretty disappointed by the sound. Just ordered the 770 LE, hopefully I'm not too disappointed again.

oh gawd I wanna hear the 770 LE. I hear good things about it! I want a closed 880 sounding can. ANd I hear the 770 is like the 880 but closed [so not as nice at 880]

Currently using the DT 990 250Ohm with a Go-Vibe Petite DAC/AMP. Wondering if there're other portable DAC/AMPs I should check out?

Why? Who needs more than one portable dac/amp? ;) Are you not happy with the Go-Vibe?
