How much money can you afford to pay?

If the 880 is bass shy to you, perhaps the 990 Pro will fit your needs.

I would ideally like to keep it below $100.00 don't mind buying used.

Sounds like a job for the X1s.

Yes, I know they're out of his price range.

How strong do the DT880 Pros clamp? I'd rather not have another 280s...

Nothing clamps like the 280s, but the Beyer Pro models do clamp quite a bit. Better off getti g the Premiums which don't clamp much.

Any other cheaper recommendations smily_headphones1.gif
The CAL doesn't have much more bass, but is a significant downgrade in soundstage and overall SQ. You're best bet is the 990.

That I don't completely agree with. The CAL has quite a bit more bass than the 880. That and the fact that they are closed makes the bass bounce off the cuos and resonate, giving them a fuller, more enveloping level of bass, whereas open headphones like the 880 have bass that tends to decay a bit quicker and not be as present.

I do agree that tbe SQ is a bit of a downgrade compared to the 880s though. I would jjst use a bass boost on the 880 over the CAL, unless you absolutely have no way of boosting bass.

He should buy the Turtle Beach DSS1 off of eBay if he wants a cheap solution IMO, the bass sounds warm and deep with the bass cranked up, very fun sound.

The Grado SR60i is an example of a more musical headphone than the more analytical AD700.
I already have the SR60i, I just wanted to compare the AD700 to something I'm very familiar with. I'm probably going to get the HD 555 because they have more bass and look more comfortable, plus I can foam mod it to sound like the 595. For $80 it sounds like a bargain.

The 880 has more bass presence than the 598. The 598 has overly forward mids for my taste.

Isn't much of that (due to) distortion though? Don't get me wrong --- whatever it is, I do like it...

Probably resonance, not necessarily distortion. What's weird is that the TH-900 frequency graphs look like how the D7000 actually sounds like. But hey, whatever.

FR graphs don't paint the whole picture, they're just a point of reference.

thanks avshrug :D

 

"and sorry about your wallet!"

 

Nah! wallet is not really the problem is the overprices.. jesus :X

 

Example random hd 598 on e-bay, 250 U$ if i buy go up to 400 U$ (60%) add more exportation 50 or 225U$ more 60% on the price, in the best scenario is 480U$ without safe and if the seller export... in a fast look a seller who export, he sell for 310U$ and shippment 120U$ + 60%= 688U$ i find one shipment for 17.50 but i need to wait 1 or 2 months some shops sell here for 437-938U$

 

the dt990 Pro the value here is 378,53U$

 

the cheaper i find hd 558 346,50U$

 

"What I have to say about your post... Audio will always be a source of debate."

 

Everything is a source of debate XD

 

 

the sennheiser looks more popular,but, probably i will choose dt990 then the sennheiser.
 
the dt990 find just one place who selling they.He is now on sale in almost """original"""(great quotes) price, i will catch that chance
 
hd598 and 558 is easy to find but the prices oscillate 2 to 5x more "original"(counting tax, export sales and profit) price range ... ridiculous.
 
in 1 day dt990 cut down the price close to hd558 and hd598 had a small increase in price
 
well thanks Avshrug againbiggrin.gif

I have tried Bass boost, but it distorts when the amplitude increases.
