Wise words indeed! With that said, it sounds like I've made a good purchase! I'm eagerly but soberly anticipating my dt1350s! They should be here Thursday. Thanks again, Focker. (I almost mistyped your name there, which wouldn't have gone over too well.) blink.gif

I am interested in hearing how these sound from some one who gets them in Pre Break in!

As I have stated before, I would consider my T1 and DT1350, sometimes a bit dull to listen to, but yet I just love them. Very contradicting...

Depending on your music preference, you may have different opinion about the DT1350.

 

Just a side note,

 

When I started off with my headphone obsession, T1 was my ultimate headphone. You just have to love the craft of it, which got me into beyerdynamics. I have owned DT990 250/600ohm DT800 250/600ohm. I have now in my inventory, a custom DT990, DT1350 and T1. Just love them.

 

I love how beyerdynamic’s has got its own sound signature and headphone design and how it is inherited in all the headphones. They are all similar but yet each headphone has got its uniqueness to separate from the other. It’s kind of like the bloodline of the beyers.

How would you describe the beyer house sound?

More technically:

Relatively flat bass from 500 Hz down, sloping cut 2 to 6 kHz centered on 5 kHz, 8-10 kHz boost. Some models have some mids 1-2 kHz cut. DT880 is their flattest model (lowest magnitude of boosts and cuts); T1 has the most 8-10k boost with less of 5k cut; DT990 has some bass boost over 880. I find DT880 too aggressive due to its flatness.

My own T70p is pretty occupies the happy medium sounding somewhat bass heavier than T1, more 5k cut, slightly less 8k boost, much less annoying ringing.

 

Their set of cuts and boosts happens to match my own HRTF.

I always get confused when I have to compare the AKG and Beyer house sound... Both are very clear, both has good soundstage, tight bass etc. What do you guys think?

post #2694 of 3806

AKG has similar signatures in circumaural models, but their headphones tend to have more resonances and tend to have major subbass drop.

The exception is AKG K701, which is even flatter than DT880, but slightly worse in resonance and decay. Has even more of "interesting" harmonics behavior too.

(Much better with resonances than the piercing T1 though.)

 

Their earpad models are an entirely different story - they all have major treble cut.

Nice, good description! I'm enjoying my Dt 880[250] and I'm hoping to soon get the Dt 990 [250] soon, my biggest issue atm is my Amps... a cMoy BB, E11 and E6 are not strong enough to really drive them as transiently as I'd like. The bass boost on the cMoy tends too... add a little to much color to the Dt 880s imo so now I've got to scrap uo $189 for a nice JDS Labs c421 Black Edition Headphone Amplifier 8620 so I'm selling my Nintendo DS systems finally to get my about $140 there, if I sell off my Pokemon Games to I should have plenty enough! 

 

In addition I'm enjoying this on the Byer House sound 

 

 

It's a shame 4million ppl have only heard this low quality version! Still though I'm liking the Byersound, now I just need an Amp to better drive them <3 [and ironically the amp I want is more than the Dt 990 Pro 250s...]

I'd highly recommend the Asgard for your 880s.  Mine really came to life with this amp...

Meh +200 dollars I think the I'll try the JDS c421 Ap8620. I might have a seller for about $140 used. I shouldn't even buy it but well I'm selling my Nintendo DS Lites to get it so... budget is an issue [Eww the bass has this deep rumble but there's something missing, something that's crackaling in some of the Frq] Interestingly I don't have this issue when I source from my Computer, but my Hifiman Hm 601 [Line out at that] runs into trouble and it's not all the bass just some freq... not sure which tbh I should look into more

 

Still the JDS c421 is highly recommended so I only need to look into how powerful it can be!

Yes, power is the concern.  I listened to mine via the Audinst HUD-mx1 for quite a while and really enjoyed the combo.  Still, after upgrading to the Asgard I realized that my 880s had a lot more in them than I realized.  The Audinst was able to push them to perfectly loud levels, but the Asgard really makes them sing.  Things are punchier and more alive.

 

Just throwing it out there...

I will proably w8 to get the Asgard. I discovered ALL of my problems was because of a crappy Album... don't know why but the ALbum I had was pure junk for some sad reason [bad 16bit loseless that makes me sad :[)

 

But I'm still going to get the c421 just not as urgently as I though I needed to! And how transparent is the Asgard? When you say "more punchier" it could be the amp giving it the punch [which isn't a bad thing] but I still need a good transparent amp b4 I get into coloring the Dt 880s, because the potential is there as you mentioned [burning them in has helped <3] 

 

Ahh yay, got Elctri-Q EQ to work so that's nice! if the nrml foobar made the dts an 11 the Eltri-Q makes em an 11.5/10 xD
