Distinctly average, due to the really small earcups. People can't hear you but you can hear quite a bit of your surroundings. Think PX200. Worse than T50P and AKG K450/Q460. Better than Aiaiai Tracks tho.

I'm one of those lucky ones who find the fit not a problem at all - tho I can see why some ppl would struggle with them. Yes the earcups lack real swivel, and that matters when the enclosure is small and the direction of sound projection is important. However, after less than one minute of trying, I got the perfect fit.

 

The cans are smaller in real life than in the pictures. I dun have my PX200II with me now but I think the earcups of DTX300 are a bit smaller. The cable is nothing to write about, and yes there's no visible strain relief, for a reason (I guess - see below)

 

Once fitted, the sound is, well, IN-CRE-DI-BLE. Enough emphasis, no?

 

It is not about extension - I love trebles and the DTX300's treble does roll off, but in a nice way that isn't disturbing at all. The bass is very good quality-wise, not the deepest which is understandable considering its size, but very detailed and reasonably impactful. What really excels, and what really makes it sound incredible, is everything else. The quality all across the spectrum is spectecular, nothing is recessed or brought forward, details are abundant (almost iem level of details). I heard many details that I dun often heard in other cans, most notably the T50P. Every single instrument I heard so far sounds almost identical to the real thing itself, and layering is so good that busy orchestral passages sound absolutely convincing and concert-hall like. The presentation is generally airy, and if you're after a very focused and hard-hitting sound these may not be for you.

 

The folding mechanism is smart and when folded it is REAL flat - I can put it in my suit jacket pocket with ease. And the reason for the omission of any visible strain relief, I GUESS by observation, is that it would hinder the folding mechanism. You'd understand what I'm talking about when you see the cans folded yourself.

 

Frankly speaking I expect this to be another Chinese OEM products (no discrimination here - some of these OEM products bring shame to the big names in the industry) but no it isn't. It is a quality product at an insanely low price. I listen to classical music the most, pop and jazz follows, and for these genres I'd pick the DTX300 over the T50P (which I still have with me) anyday for details, balance and soundstaging. I suspect the T50P would do better for rock or metal, though I haven't tried.

 

And, to those who cares, they're made in China. Hence the price I believe.



Thanks for the awesome review dude :D I might have gotten them if this review came out sooner XD but i have already bought the hf5 and FA-002W last month as my main and portable gear so I would have to hold off on them i guess T.T

You do realize the first quote was a Back To The Future reference, right?

Thus far, I've not read any "Is it made in China" inquiries on this thread which dissed the quality of Chinese made merchandise; or even implied that merchandise made in China is substandard.  Each poster has his/her own reason for inquiring about a product's origin.  It is presumptuous, in my opinion, to post in defense of the quality of Chinese goods when, clearly, the quality of the merchandise isn't being outwardly attacked. 

I am currently awaiting delivery of a NFB-2 from Audio GD (Chinese Company - Chinese made DAC).  I have no doubt, especially after doing the research, that this DAC will be anything less than high quality.
But, I digress....

For my personal Beyerdynamic collection, I'm only interested in Beyers which are actually manufactured in Germany (German Company - German Made Headphones).

I bought a pair of these online and received them today. I noticed the headband is different than from all the images I've been able to find online. Any reason to worry?
