The Basshead Club - Page 598  

post #8956 of 11259

With the Alphas on my DT770 600 ohm, the treble a lot more harsh. The sub bass and impact increase a very good amount, as you would probably imagine. There's even a little bass at the lower side of the mids, but at the same time the mids don't seem as close to you. I think it's because the driver is quite a bit farther from your head than they are with the stockers on.

 

Putting on the Alphas makes both my D2000 and my DT770 a little more V-shaped sounding. I think the Alphas almost make the sub bass on the DT770 almost as thunderous as on the D2K with the Alphas, ALMOST. The D2K reaches just a little bit lower, but this may not be the case with the 80 ohm version of the 770. I think esmBOS is going to have to leave his impressions of the changes they bring to his 80 ohm after he receives his Alphas. (I'm assuming you actually ordered them Haha)

 

I think I'm going to keep the Alphas on my D2K though, I'm kind of liking my mids on the DT770 right now. When I want a load of bass dumped on me, I'll just listen to the D2K.

Anyone gonna try the status audio hd one?

 

They claim to essentially sell a beats solo hd for 50 dollars. No logos, no celebrity endorsements.

 

For 50 dollars, i think it would be worth the price in my opinion. Good replacement for the now 100$+ xb500...

How does the comfort compare to the (famous) standard DT770 pads and overall comfort?

post #8962 of 11259

They are still very comfortable. The Alphas are really squishy and soft. They sit on my ears rather than surrounding them like the stock velours do. Really, the Alphas have more surface touching your head so the pressure is displaced over more area, so they don't make the clamp feel too tight, I did have to extend the size of the DT770 for them to sit on my ears at the right angle though, the Alphas are much deeper than the velours.

The part of the pad that sits on your head is thicker on the alphas. The foam padding inside the Alphas are way softer than in the velours. The velours have stiff foam in them to help with isolation and seal for the closed-can DT770, while still having a plush fabric on the outside, the Alphas don't need the stiff foam for seal and isolation because the lamb leather on the outside provides those things so they can be filled with a much softer padding, which they are. Here are some side by side pics showing how they differ in size and shape.

 

This camera is terrible, I know.

I want to nominate you for most helpful Head-fi member of the month :bigsmile_face: Really great and informative posts about the Alphas! I've placed my order and I'm waiting for the pads. Impressions combined with DT770/80 in the near future, and also a comparison with DT990 pleathers!

I'm a member.

 

Now that the discussion is aside:beerchug:

 

I am a Chronic Bass addict since my time competing in IASCA dB drags. (Car Audio)

 

Spent 2,3,4 weeks at Japans mega electronic outlets and came to some conclusions that may not go over well. The V-Moda are "tighter' than Beats but unless built quality is worth 100 bucks they are just as over priced. They could not take amp under 50Hz without failing eventually. The Pioneer, Sony Japan series like the 1000's were stomped to death by a set of 57mm JVC's.

 

I wasn't trying to save money i was trying to get low end extension without distortion and the 57mm JVC's were the only ones besides a pair of Onkyo's I had never heard of that did that for under 500 bucks.

 

If you like Bass. Have a portable unit like a Cowon with Jet Effects and an EQ I highly recommend these. Flat EQ with BBE 10 MachBass 7.....here comes the THUNDER:L3000:

Thanks....does that mean I can be a member?..Please!!

 

 

It is well balanced and ultra adjustable. I went through a few different setups before settling on this. McGyver would be proud of me :biggrin:
