I'm looking for a closed headphone for rock and metal, and the T70p; is on my list along with some others. It caught my eye due to it's excellent treble, resolution, clairty, comfort, isolation etc. There's just one thing that's lacking: lack of bass. I'm not abasshead by any means, but I dislike headphones that are very bass light because they sound lifeless and analytical to me. IMO, bass just gives a headphone some more juice and body. I've read many reviews saying these sound really bad for rock and metal due to it's bass, but I have read somewhere that the beyer gel pads seem to fix this. Has anyone here tried putting gel pads on these? I don't need it to be bass heavy, I just don't want it to sound basslight and thin if you know what I mean. Do the gel pads fix these problems? There's also something else I wanted to know, are the mids in these recessed like the DT770, or are they a bit more present?

Get the DT770, LE version if you can. No recessed mids there It's simply awesome for rock and metal!

I am SO happy with this setup: Isabellina HPA LFP-V Edition > T70 with pure silver wire

Copper would make sense for a lot of people, I guess. I like the signature as it is, and I want it to be as clear and transparent as possible. Isabellina is a wonderful source and a great match with t70.

Also I do think that silver being bright is a little overstated. Silver just shows the true signature of the equipment even better. That is just my opinion. I have pure silver wire on my er4 as well, and they actually did not get brighter at all. Only more clear. A little more bass as well, I think. as for t70, I think they did get a tiny bit brighter, but not much. And they did get even more transparent than they were before.

Overstated?  Maybe for some.  However,  I put copper cables on both my HD800s and T1's and the difference made them more enjoyable to listen to and equally as detailed.  I guess each ones ears are more sensitive than others..  

 

Congats on a good looking and sounding combo.

I would love to listen to that setup one day! I am sure it is worldclass sound. ...And you have to try my T70p and T5p as well. :-)

Yes, Rasmus, we must meet someday. It would be very interesting!

Even though I love the sound of the T70p very much I have to admit that my T5p gets most listening time at the moment. It just gives me a more complete listening exprience when listening to various genres. Also the wearing comfort with the leather pads gived better isolation and just feels so good to wear.

I am giving these a shot (T70), used from Amazon Warehouse. I currently use the DT770-600 with the Beyer leather pads and dynamat lined cups. I love them, my main complaints are slightly harsh treble (can cause some ear ringing after loud listening sessions, more than other headphones I have).

 

I am wondering if I could put the leather pads right on these- they seem to have identical cups?

 

Also, I read one comparo of DT770 to T70- anyone else care to comment on that change?

I guess you can use either pads on both cups. The size is the same it seems. 

 

The DT-770-600 and T70 are very different. T70 have a brighter signature and less bass impact. The T70 are not harsh at all with the right source and amplifier.

I had the DT770/600, and I loved them. As Rasmus says, T70 is different. Less bass quantity but superior in every other aspect. It's quite a big step up in sound quality from the dt-series...But I guess they are very picky about source. Very transparent headphone!
