I just noticed your signature... The DT-770 AE sounds muddy and horrible straight from a phone, IMHO. Give it some proper amping and it is spectacular, much better than any other Beyer this side of the T1.

The review of headfonia is for me a giant WTF .He tooks to many drugs for this ... A very good headphone  ,but well headofina review as i said is exagerated .

I pluged it on SPL Auditor , O2 so i know how it sound amped , it's great phone for the price but ... for me a DT-880/990 , T-70 or DT-48 are Better speacking of beyers IMO .

Horses for courses I guess - I really didn't like the T70, way too bright!

Not the first time that Headfonia has been full of exaggerations. Read their M-100 review, it's straight-up terrible.

That was a guest review (M100) I actually agree with the DT770 AE review. But let's not sidetrack this thread ;)

My biggest concern is the number of guest writers they're having. Some of those reviews have been really disappointing.

Agreed - And Mike is beginning to slip as well, his reviews sounding more and more like something straight from a web shop item description, putting positive spins on negative traits. The low point so far has been the Logitech UE9000 review

 

And don't get me started on the Jeebus-babble posted at christmas... 

 

Whenever I mention a new Headfonia review, people have started asking if it was done by Lieven or Mike. If it's by Lieven, they'll read it.

Here's some measurements:

Not too happy about the comfort with the DT770 AE, especially the pressure on the apex of my skull:

 

Notice the red spot - My Ultrasones did the same, so I knew what had to be done - HD650 padding to the rescue!

 

First, new earpads. I got a set of velours with my used set of 770's but they were getting pretty flat (My thumb makes the old pad on the left look thicker than it is.)

 

Now to attack the main problem - the headband. Take it off the headphones and make a cut starting about 15mm from the end of the headband, a couple of mm into the padded area:

 

 

 

Continue the cut down the lenght of the headband, stopping 15mm from the end, and you can take out the original Beyer foam:

 

 

 

The HD650 headband padding (Sennheiser spare part #88597) is a bit shorter than the Beyer foam, so I cut of 20mm of foam for each end of the headband "pocket". This keeps the HD650 pad centered when you put it in. Put the headband back on and enjoy your new comfy Beyers!

 

 

Notice the indentation in the middel of the headband - no more pressure on the apex of your skull!

Hasn't bothered me at all. Maybe you just have a weird shaped head ;)

Good fix though!!

How do the velours effect the sound?

It opens up a little and becomes just a tiny bit brighter - I like it, actually smile.gif

I am trying these- I want to see how they compare to my DT770/600 with leather pads. I will post impressions.
