No, I won't be at my US home for a while... And the country I'm in doesn't deliver through amazon. Ebay works, but the shipping is ridiculously expensive.

I only listen to classical music, and I have absolutely no way of auditioning them before buying, so I have to rely on the good people here to give me some prospective. 

I was hesitant to reply because I don't have a vast experience with headphones. In my opinion, they are slightly bright. They rarely feel aggressive to me. If I listen to music with lots of highs, like organ music, for 30-45 min I tend to feel fatigued. If I listen to music with more mids, like orchestral music, I tend to get fatigued after an hour or maybe a little more time. It is noticeable, but not aggressive in my opinion. I can't listen to them for very long periods of time if it is "bright music."

Thank for replying. Now, that's a big problem, since most symphonies are actually over 30 minutes, so are a great number of classical pieces. This means one should expect fatigue from these headphones pretty much with each long use.

 

Looks like I need to search elsewhere for a warm closed heaphone that is as good with classical music. Such a shame! I was fascinated by DavidMaher's comment that, for classical, these are "on par" with the T1. What a great way to enjoy music to the fullest and still save a grand not buying something like the T1!

I like the DT660 just fine.  Yes, they are a little bit like my Grados on the top end but that's O.K. with me.  Maybe Sennheiser makes a closed you could tolerate.

They do. It's called the Momentum but it is shamelessly advertised as an over-ear headphone, whereas your ears will feel like their in a death trap (that's if you're lucky enough to fit them inside).

 

Such a shame too! They're dark and can be used without an amp, which is a requirement I have for my future closed pair. Some people have mentioned they're like the closed version of HD650. 

 

If the DT660s were dark and not bright, I'd be partying like Charlie Sheen.
