DT880's are a great inexpensive neutral choice as well.

The pads appear to be velour, not leather. While I never thought my HE 300 were uncomfortable, these are considerably more comfortable. The HD 700s are little smaller and lighter than the HD 800, but my impression is they have a very similar fit and feel. 

 

Hi there g.

 

So you've gone space-age, eh? They certainly are one serious set of 'phones....shame they're also serious money, lol! Christmas HAS come early...ENJOY! :wink:

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but: i bought a Little Dot MK III which i am planing to connect to Fiio E10s line out by using a very generic RCA to mini cable (1-3 euros). I wanted to know how important is the quality of the RCA cable in such a setup?

Everything fell into place very nicely. My tax refund was larger than I expected and I found them on clearance. Even so, I am still in a state of shock at what I have done, but enjoying them immensely. :)

It depends...  Some folks think cables make a significant difference, and others don't. My recommendation is to go forward with the purchase of a generic cable for now. And later, if you would like to experiment, try something a bit better, say 10-15 euros, and see if you notice a difference.

Generally speaking, not that important at all (if it's not faulty). Copper, any copper, is just copper. There are people that would disagree but it is OK to disagree with them.

Personally i'd take build quality over materials used.

 

Yeah i bought an aftermarket cable for my HD650's, but I don't really notice any real difference. Money that could have been better spent elsewhere.

 

Cables to go is all i use for RCA. Anyone who buys Nordost cables has entirely too much money eating away at them.

This is even kinda pricy but i like the flexibility of the cable and the build quality is great.

I bought an original HD650 cable for my HD600s when the HD600 cable had problems (at a considerable mileage). :smile_phones:

Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro-250 Headphones from Amazon.com for $129.95

 

Is this a good deal? These phones come in 250/32/600 ohm. Only the 250 ohm version is on sale. Which value works best for LD MKIII?

Shouldn't make much of a difference... Last year I head both the 250 omh (my old cans) and a 600 ohm version and heard no real difference.

 

The mkiii outputs 350 mW @ 300/600 ohm so go for cheap!

B&H has them for $129 as well.

Did you find the DT990`s a bit sharp in the treble kvtaco17? That is the biggest issue brought up in the beyer thread, some find the treble just a little too piercing.

Thanks.

I had read that the M&M stack was a bit bright, the LD would tame that that for sure.

600 ohm is probably the best, but you'll have no issues running the 250 ohm headphones smily_headphones1.gif
