What headphones are you currently rocking? - Page 27

post #391 of 1509

I really don't think they will. I haven't had the chance to hear the Mad Dogs yet but I've heard a few modded T50s including a Thunderpants with Stax pads. They really didn't do it for me like the LCD 2 did.

 

They handle EQ a lot better and if you want to fiddle with it a lot you'll get really good sound out of them.

 

The Thunderpants with a huge bass boost outdid my LCD 2 on pure slam and fun though for bass heavy stuff.

MDs are nothing like the TP-1s  -  An even more neutral mod is the Paradox.  The MD has more (but good) bass slam.

Ha Ha - me to.  The 650s paired with the βeta-22.

Maybe I should hear the real thing. I heard one that was 'based' on the Mad Dogs.

Currently rocking my AD-900's. Sounds good with everything.

Listening to Tony Bennett on my ESP/950. I don't want to get up or do anything, even though I *should* be getting out the door. It's just so...cool. cool.gif

Just listened to the Beyer Custom One at local Headphone shop again... I'm convinced... Beyer decided to go mainstream, but retain good quality... Selling my HD-25 for one of these because screw supra aural...

I got my new HE-500's so I'm breaking them in now on my head..

post #400 of 1509

Really want to hear them buy am waiting for the rest of the line to drop. Eager to see what they have in store for us.

They are actually quite impressive. I expected much less because this was Beyers answer to "mainstream" headphones and also the Sennheiser Momentum (not exactly the answer to that) but I am VERY impressed with the outcome. The adjustable bass works very nicely and the differences are very noticeable. Bass is very strong and deep. Has more mids than the DT990 and treble is certainly lacking compared to the other Beyer headphones. Soon, these will be my to-go headphones because they are so much more comfortable than my HD-25s and dare I say it, better?

That'd be quite the feat considering the HD25's pedigree. I owned both the -1 and -13. 

 

As for the bass 'switch'...Does it just reduce bass or does it open up the sound more as well?

I know right, just don't be pointing any guns at me. I'm just tired of the HD-25s... They never get any use out of em...

 

It's a 4 level switch. As you may have guessed, it goes from bass lightest to bass heaviest in 4 step increments. Bass light is actually REALLY bass light, I really didn't like it. I liked the 3rd highest setting the best because it didn't give me overpowering bass like the 4th step gave me, but it seemed to hit the sweet spot in tonal balance. I felt that as you increased the bass, the sound started to open up, but as you hit the 4th level, things started to sound a bit muffled for my tastes. Overall, a great headphone with a really unique personality. Also, it's very comfortable, which is a winning factor against my HD-25s. But considering how the HD-25s are supra aural, it's kind of unfair to compare the two.

Last question. Is bass light 'open'? The idea of being able to flip them open when someone wants to talk to me is nice.

I'm not too sure about that... I only had a brief listen yesterday and a good listen today in a quiet environment so I couldn't test that. I would have if it crossed my mind. But the Custom Ones do cancel noise pretty well for it being a closed/semi-open? design.
