What comes after M50 and D2000 - Page 2

post #16 of 19

FWIR, I suggest considering the DT990 - search DT990 to see if you like what you read.

It has a peak ~10khZ - I am very sensitive to peaks in that freq and thus plan to stay away from the Beyer line.

 

I got my XB700 today and have been listening to it for the past 6 hrs. The bass is there, not tight but it's everywhere. The highs sound fair. But, what's up with the mids? The bass dominates the lower mids and the upper mids are highly recessed. IMO the M50 trumps the XB700 in every way ( I think a comparison with D2000 is not fair given the price difference ).

However, it does sound enjoyable with hip-hop and electronic music and I would keep it just for listening to those genres.
 

Edit: I guess I am too biased as I am used to the sound signature of M50 and D2000. I will listen to these for a few more days and then come back to comment what I feel about them. The mids don't necessarily sound bad. They just don't sound right.

Yes, yes... wise to avoid the Beyers with a sensitivity to those freq. peaks. Can be quite strident.

 

I look forward to your comparison report on the M50 v. D2000

I updated it a bit a while back. I'll probably update it further sometime after I hit the 300hr mark on both of them smily_headphones1.gif
