Aaah I see, no worries man, but keep us updated on your journey to finding the right pair of headphones for you.

I went to Amazon and started the motion to return the cans. I'm gonna spend a few days with them and decide if today was just not my day for them...

I think AT realized the old AD series design had run its course, and that the design failed at bass.  The new ones look a little more closed, so I'm hoping they can extract some more bass this time.  They could make great budget classical cans at least.

time to quickly add that to my christmas list

 

i heard theres a new one coming out too!

 

Ya, Metro is pretty cool.  The shooting mechanics are slightly clunky, but the environment/atmosphere is excellent.
The next one's called Metro: Last Light - wikipedia says it won't be out until 2012 Q2 or Q3  : \

I still think I may buy some sportapros and steal/swap their ksc35 drivers onto my ksc75 clips.  How is the comfort comparison between the 75 and 35 clips?

Not gonna lie, the KSC35 clips kinda bothered at first. However, they don't bend and therefore remain true to their sound. The KSC75 clips are more comfy, but can bend and alters SQ. The KSC75 I have now is not as good as when I first got them, though it's mostly my fault for bending the clips myself. No matter what I do, I can't bend them back to their proper place. Anyways, the KSC35 clips (once you get used to them, which honestly doesn't take that long) are about an 8/10, vs the 10/10 of the KSC75. I don't have an issue wearing them all day. Sure, I miss the rubbery KSC75 clips, but the KSC35 clips will do.

I may end up getting another pair of KSC75s and using the fresh clips with the KSC35.

It's possible you would have to bend the KSC75 clips either way, as the KSC35 looks thinner which could make the 75 clips stick out to far/be too lose.  I think my ears are probably A-symmetrical, so I'm better of bending them a little.  It is tough to bend them back once you screw them up though - that happened on my first pair.

So it is decided then, for 175 $, if you want soundstage, good clarity, great sound quality, most bass available on an open can, AND DONT NEED ISOLATION, get the DT 990 Pros! They seem to be the best ones for the price and quality, they are also really good for gaming, you just need to get a good amp or soundcard.

 

If you need isolation and want greeeeeeeeat bass, and an upgrade in quality from say the sony xb500's get the dt770s, they are quite nice closed headphones! also 145$ on ebay from trusted sellers.

 

If you find some specials like we have; selling them for 200 or near that price, but most seem upwards 250 :/ due to demand, but it seems A LOT OF HEAD FIERS love their d2000!

 

Cheers everyone :D

Okay, so it does seem I made the mistake of judging them too quickly. About 30 minutes of using the KSC35 (which NEVER bothers me), and the bass started bothering me.

Today is not a good day for me to judge headphones.

I'm not gonna say to disregard what I have said about the DT990 Pro, but I'm definitely gonna take my sweet ass time getting used to them, because it looks like my ears aren't in a good mood for bass today.

I apologize to those I may have turned away from the DT990 Pros. Don't rule them out yet. Not that you should just go by what I say anyways.

Can i expect a full length review by the end of the week sir?

Lol, I dunno about a full length review (I'm not articulate with my words like others are), but I will do my best to clarify what is good and what is with them.

Listening right now to Adamn Nickey - Callista (Stoneface & Terminal Mix), and I'm very much enjoying the DT990s at this very moment.

edit: Thanks chico.


Any theory about the E10 amp/dac for my desktop with dt900pro? it will save me lots of cash and a new vsound card :)

post #2726 of 37459

@MLE: The fact that your reviews are short is one of the main reasons I prefer reading them.

Thanks, Eric. I'm not a professional by any means. I just like to get down to the cold hard facts as to how I perceive the headphones I 'review'. I'm terrible with analogies and the like, lol.

Looks like my headache wasn't exactly gone. frown.gif

I have faith that next time I review these, they're gonna be more favorable. Shoot, if I couldn't take the KSC35's sound for more than 30 minutes, something is definitely wrong. I LOVE the KSC35. XD

One thing I must stress about the DT990 Pro is how well they mesh with Dolby Headphone. I haven't been that impressed in awhile.

dolby as in sound card? i wont get that if i get the E10 right ? :<

post #2729 of 37459

Dolby as in Dolby Headphone with a console and MixAmp, which is the purpose of this entire thread as MLE outlined in the very first post. He doesn't game much on PC, so he's almost always referring to DH on MixAmp.

post #2730 of 37459

I'm told that the MMX 300 gaming set from Beyer is basically the 770's, so I would definitely pick up a pair of those for gaming over the 770s unless you don't want something with an integrated mic.
