post #7966 of 11259

I just bought myself a DT 770 pro 250 ohms. Already have an DAC so might aswell use it. I choose from the list of basshead cans from the first post. I hope It wont dissapoint me =)

Depends on the person.


LCDs definitely provide depth and texture. The impact of the LCDs is debatable depending on how impact is defined. I personally perceive a sense of impact from the LCDs. However it is not in the same sense that I perceive impact from the 2Ks. The 2Ks provide more of a sense of physical impact like a subwoofer against your face, whereas the LCDs impact is less physical, but more sonic impact. It is kind of like the perception of impact from the 2Ks comes from the cans, whereas the perception of impact of the LCDs comes from the recording (i.e. how the instruments were played or the sounds generated). 

 

I'd say both provide a good sense of impact, but of a different nature.

Good cans. They're fun, due to a slight v-shaped signature. You should enjoy them.

I agree on the LCD's impact. When I auditioned a pair a while ago, there wasn't much bass to be felt, but they provided great detail and depth, much better than the old pro700mk2s I was listening to at the time. The downside is, like you said, the quantity just wasn't there, but then again, they are insensitive headphones, they require some juice to get moving, and I didn't have the opportunity to eq the bass out, so who knows? These may be bass monsters when amped and eq'd sufficiently. They're definitely one of the headphones that I'd like some more time with in the future. 

 

On another note, I should be getting a pair of Sony MA900s by Friday or so. They're not basshead headphones in their stock form, but I have some stuff planned for them. We shall see how good that 70mm driver really is :veryevil:

I think i know what your talking about.

With my hfi 580's they had impact, but i could hardly feel it, but from hearing it cut through the sonic space it was almost like a different type of impact.

My signature dj's get both types of impact to play very well together, from what i have experienced.

All i know is im happy smily_headphones1.gif

Driver aside, there are laws of physics at work and the MA900 is about as open as a headphone gets, so I am curious how the mods work out.

I just saw this from a review on audio technica ATH M50s

 I just bought the DT770... They look just the same to me. Im no audio expert but can that small difference can make a one different from another regarding sound from a non audiophile person? Asking because I used to have ATH M50s and i dont like the it when im listening EDMs.

post #7973 of 11259
All the charts show is basically an educated guess at the sound signature.

They sound completely different... The dt770's have a very nice soundstage and a noticable amount of sub bass.

Better clarity too. More pronounced treble

Trust me, those aren't small differences. 

 

Take a look at the 5.5 kHz mark. The M50 is around 7dB quieter in that region, and it follows that range until it peaks out at around 10 kHz, where the difference is around 4dB. When you're dealing with headphone measurements, 7dB and 4dB is a big difference. 

 

@sloomingbla These are objective measurements that are generated from equipment that analyzes the performance of headphones. Although the end user will influence the sound of the headphones (hair, head size, ears, etc.), measurements like these are about as unbiased and universal as you can get.

Thanks for that info. =)

I understand that, i just say they are educated guesses because those differences are there, but because of all the different thongs that can effect the sound (things like sound quality... Some headphones produce certain frequencies better than others obviously, which can influence how loud/dramatic the differences are percieved)

I basically am just saying, the graph wont tell you the differences in sound.

Not that you dont know that of course.

OOH! I love when we talk DT770. I can't talk about them much, because there is some weird stigma about them.. People love complaining about them.

 

But of all the headphones I've ever heard/tried, I have to admit, they are in my top three. They are absolutely mind-blowing.

(IMHO)

I find it strange that people keep complaining about the DT770's. I use mine (80 Ohm's) all the time for EDM-fun-time and absolutely love them! Über comfortable and has sub-bass extension that just won't quit (I do EQ bass up a bit FYI)!  Mine are strapped with DT990 (?) pleathers, which slightly improves isolation and therefore bass-quantity some. They look awesome with the black pleathers!

Yes, I agree. I have had some listening time with the LCD-2/3, and one thing was very clear - I wasn't used to the bass quantity (of the lack thereof). There was a lot of detail, and it is certainly a headphone I would consider as a summit-fi purchase of a can with decent bass properties. However, as I am still craving loads of bass quantity (and some quality), I have yet to appreciate the abilities of an LCD 2/3.

The M50 isn't very good for EDM. The DT770 is a much better headphone for dance music, featuring prominent highs and relatively good bass quality (and certainly more bass). I would have to attenuate the highs a little to fully enjoy the DT770, but it is definitely the more engaging headphone for EDM.
