today i got some dt770 edition 2005. like them so far, especially soundstage. but to me they lack a little sub bass and somtimes highs get a little sharp. can anyone compare them to the LEs?
I love these headphones. First ever truly comfortable pair of headphones I've owned, and an overly balanced sound. But... has anyone compared these to the Momentums? For $100 or so more, I think from my memory the DT770 AE is at least the better value, but I only did a short audition of the Momentum, remembering it to be pleaseant but expensive. Any other reflections?
Also, what all are you amping it with? Or do you?
Overall I prefer the sound signature of the DT770 LE: they got a clearer, deeper bass while the Momentum is more muddied (mainly due to a slight midbass hump). I'd prefer the midrange of the Momentum, paired with the treble of the DT770...
Of course the Momentum is much easier to use on the go.
I tried this beyer 770 LE recently, after reading the good reviews so far. I was hoping that it could replace my m50 or k550.
However, it didn't impressed me on my first try. I dislike the normal beyer cans but not this 770 LE. This 770 LE sounded neutral to me.
Not as sibilant as my m50 and does not have the slight boosted bass as the m50. The soundstage is bigger and it's more detailed than the m50.
Compared to the k550, k550 is technically more superior. k550 sounded cleaner, more laid back, more space between the instruments and you. Vocals for the 770LE is relatively more forward.
The earpads on the k550 is more comfortable and the cups are bigger and it feels like memory foam in it. The earpads on the 770LE feels cheap and it's not as soft as the k550's, the pleather of the pads is harder and seems less "breathable" than the k550's.
For my M/L sized head, the fitting of k550 is just nice. The 770LE may fit those with a smaller head better, given that they may face a fitting problem with the larger k550.
All in all, having the 550, I feel that the 770LE doesn't bring anything new my collection. But if I only had M50, I would definitely considered the 770LE.
