How to make DT 770 Pro less muddy?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I'm want to use my Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro more, but atm they're just too muddy and boomy for me. I love my Sennheiser HD 595, what kind of equipment do I need to change the soundpicture of my Beyers?

You need different headphones. That's just the sound signature of the DT770 which most people know going in.

Do you have the 80 Ohm version ?

What amp and what source are you using? The DT770s are always going to be bass heavy.

the dt 770 pro are awesome for bassheads, not much else

 

upgraded to dt 990 - 600 ohm and never looked back.

Are you looking to mod them or what? Changing stuff upstream isn't going to do much.  The way people describe the signature it sounds more like a case of resonance rather than frequency response.    It's my understanding that the non pro version has more tamed bass, though I've admittedly heard neither.

If you enjoy the HD595, you'ld probably enjoy the DT990 more than the DT770. The main reason imo to have the DT770 is if you need closed headphones.

he'd probably enjoy the dt 880 the best. make sure to get the 600 ohm version though, its alot better.

After 2 weeks of running in, I guess around 300 hrs, it had become much clearer though. It sounded muffed the first week I've them.

I don't hear them as particularly muddy or boomy, just midrange recessed.

 

What's the source?  If it has non-trivial output impedance, you're going to get extra midbass and sloppier bass control, both of which may make it sound muddier, by at least a little bit.  I wouldn't suspect a huge difference in general, probably not enough to change your opinion about the headphones.

 

You can try closing any bass ports (are there any? I forget) or stretching out the headband to get less of a clamping seal, which should reduce the bass.

So.... is there any closed headphones that have the same sound picture as the HD 595?

Audio Technica ATH-A700? Are they accustive and have a large soundstage?

The AudioTechnica ATH-AD700 has a great soundstage. So much so that they're probably the most popular gaming headphone where soundstage can be more important than straight up sq.

PXC-450 uses the same driver as HD595, and active noise cancelling! The built is very nice too.
