Thank you for the informative reply. bigsmile_face.gif

Have you tried bending the head band to increase the clamping force and so the bass too?

Oh, and as I was reading your post I really got excited and I was all set to place an order....that's until I read your last sentence biggrin.gif

I tried bending the headband but it's very flexible so it takes a lot before it actually works so I stopped.  In all seriousness, the sound still is very good but when I put pressure on the cups, I get a little more bass presence.  Sorry to confuse you.  I tend to like all different kinds of headphones for their unique signatures but for your preferences once again, the Pro 900's seem like the best fit.  Please search and seek information from other threads and members for best information since I can be a little too erratic with my info.  I'm really trying to help though.  tongue_smile.gif

I have also hear that the T70 is too tight for some and they tried to bend it out and unable to do so well.

I was wanting to get the gel pads that everyone has been talking about, so could somebody please post a link? I want to make sure that I get the right ones. The ones that I am seeing look silver, where the image in my head is clear. Thanks!

I heard the T70 and T70p two days ago, I'm very impressed!

I got my Fiio E17 two weeks ago and paired it with my T70p, connected to my Sony laptop as source. The E17 made the T70p sounds a little bit warmer and darker, but that's OK to me as I used to listen to W4R a lot during my works and travels.

I just sold gel pads here on Head-Fi, see for pictures:

I wasn't prepared for the T70 to sound as loud and full as it did from an iPod nano on very low volumes. I was expecting there to be more difference between the T70p and T70. Alas, for portable use, a 3m cable isn't good. I wonder with different pads, if the T70 would isolate more.

 

I'm quite impressed by how 'portable' both cans are. I may go for the T70 and just reterminate it for portable use. No amp, no need.

The Beyer gel pads will increase the isolation.  I've only head them on DT770s so I don't know how they sound would change but I'd assume they'd increase the bass on the T70s like they did on the 770s.

Hey kiteki,

 

Did you notice any differences between them? Also, how did each compare to the T5P you like so much? :)

T70 is not a bad choice! You will love them. Choosing the T70 you might also find that when on a desktop amplifier they scale to amazing levels. The cable on T70p is too short for homeuse - for me at least :-)

post #462 of 544

Well, I will use them on a short leash. I have the DT880 600Ω already for home and a lot of others a quick loan away. I'm looking for something to use on winter commutes, so a long cable that I have to cut isn't what I want to do. I will probably save my pennies for the T5P. There are some good used prices here in Japan that aren't too (right...) much more expensive than the T70. I love each of them, but will probably just opt for the top one if I can uncover the dosh.

 

I'm not much of a headphone purchaser. I got lucky when I got my 2003 DT880 (which I sold when I moved countries) and then repurchased the DT880 2005 600Ω later. For home use, I'm all tucked in. 

post #463 of 544

Have not really use my T70 since I got it, have maybe an hour on it 

Missing T1 , so I reach for the T70 and I am liking what I hear. I usually like more bass but Adele 21 is perfect for a day like this. 

v200/v800 (amp/DAC) are my choice today too

Just ordered my t70's for $385, should get em in a few days. I'm probably going to get some leather ear pads, probably J money, instead of these gel pads people are raving about. Can't wait to be blown away :P

Do not expect to be blown away by bass-impact if you listen to the genre of your nickname normal_smile%20.gif

T70 is everything else than a bass focused headphone....
