Fantastically curious! 

post #257 of 616

To start off, my main goal in a headphone is to isolate outside sound. I use speakers when it's quiet so I don't need headphones for any other reason than to drown out my wife's "bachelorette" show or when on an airplane.

 

I've given these a good 20 hours and my impressions are that it's very similar the DT770/600 but not quite as smooth. There is a little bit of grain (very small) in comparison- maybe time with change that but I don't believe so. The big advantage is that a portable device can drive the LE while this is not really possible with the 600ohm. In comparison to my K550, I would say the LE is a little mellower in the upper mid/ treble region but overall I think the K550 is a bit more refined with better quality bass. The biggest problem I have with the K500 is the mediocre isolation and loose-ish fit. The LE stays on your head and drowns out sound nearly as well as my Klipsch X10 IEM's. I am not ready to pony up big bucks for a Ultrasone 8 or Pro but maybe someday. For now, it looks like my headphones with be a pair of DT770's- one for portable/travel and one for home amp use. Ideally, I would have a Denon D7000 with the isolation of the DT770 but alas.

 

If someone wants great isloation for home use, find a used pair of DT770/600 and slap some pleather pads on them.

Man, I was all set to get a pair of T50RPs and mod them, and now I see this. What to do? Fostex are cheaper but will they be able to best these Beyer's sound and comfort?

That may also be a question of your source: as far as I know at least the T50rp modded by Maddog needs quite some power to really shine. The DT770AE might be somewhat easier to drive, though I don't know whether a simple phone output does them justice (never tried that configuration).

Straight from my phone or laptop, the DT770AE is kicked up and down the street by the Philips Citiscape Uptown at roughly 1/3 the price. Add an amp and improve the source, however...

Unamped, the DT770 LE has bloated, soggy bass...

Many cans give you more mid-bass than the DT-770LE but I'm wildy impressed with their subbass performance - and punch! 

 

Scratch that, I'm wildly impressed overall. Why Beyer chose to make this a limited edition is beyond me.

post #265 of 616

true, that they have more focus on sub bass, although they do not go deeper than 35 hz. everything below causes weird distortions.

I really was thinking about modding some T50RPs, but since I love the comfort and look of the Beyer Pro line, I just ordered a pair of these. $220 brand new from an authorized retailer, no tax or shipping charges. Saved almost $50, not bad I think. Hope they are live up to it.

If you're looking for a more portable DT770/600, then these are pretty good for that. If you're looking for an improvement on your 600's, not so much.

Yea, I'll have to wait and see. The 770 PRO/600 that I have now are old ones from the 90s. I like them much better than the 770 Premium/600 pair that I bought (and sold) 2 years ago. If the mids are more present and the highs are a bit more controlled, I think I'll be fine.

I've never heard the T50p, but I'm still very satisfied with my DT770 LE, using it in the office almost daily -- very comfortable and isolating as well.

i think he means the fostex t50Rp not the beyer t50p.
