Had I been able to get some D2000s at the beginning of my Head-Fi journey I would, but alas, even then they were hard to find, in a year you'll have an Orpheus if you get them Markl nodded.

dammit! just ordered a pair of X1 from the amazon gold box deal (was $160USD shipped to australia)!

 

i probably should have saved the money and put it towards a pair of planar headphones instead (ie. LCD3)...but i couldn't resist!

 

not that much discussion on them in here, but i hope they're good! will be my first pair of open headphones.

The DT770 is what you are looking for. They have the same drivers as the DT990, but they're closed cans instead of open. The DT990 does have a brighter sound though. If you want more bass, get the DT770 80 Ohm. (The DT990 doesnt have an 80 Ohm version, I am aware of this) It is the more bassy of the DT770 versions. If you end up wanting the DT770 to sound brighter, you can remove the little foam cap on the back of the driver that the DT990 doesn't have.

When I had my pair of DT770 80's I got by with a Fiio E6. $25 on Amazon. I only used them at work, but they powered them just fine. There's a bass boost feature on it, but it isn't the greatest. But for $25 it's an amazing value.

oh snap :3 those x1'S looking sexeh! and open back like the dt 990's *drools* do they has the bass?

I ordered a pair of ATH-M50s last week and just got around to opening them up today and doing the detachable cable mod to them. I only bought these to sell (I had some Amazon credit that I wanted in my PayPal account instead of stuck on Amazon).

 

While I had them opened up for the detachable cable mod, I put Dynamat on the inside of the cup and cut a hold in the foam padding that's normally against the back of the cup. I had thought about doing this the last time I had some M50's but ended up not doing it. It made the mids come out a little more, there is actually MORE Bass, and more treble. I did that mod to the left cup before I did it to the right cup to see if I could hear a difference, and to decide if I wanted to reverse it or not. I liked what I heard and did the right cup as well (obviously Haha). If anyone has some M50s I HIGHLY recommend you try this, keep the padding you cut out just in case you want to put it back.

 

These headphones are for sale here in our classifieds.
