This is fair point, they do just sound very true. Had mine for a few years now and have never had a bad moment with them.

Just ordered a 250ohm version, I'll probably write a few sentences comparing them to Q701 and others next week.

Looking forward to it! :wink_face:

Thread Starter 

Keep this thread going guys. I love seeing people that have discovered these underrated cans posting here.

Is still have RoMee's cable upgrade in mind.  Still occasionally listening to these cans.

I replaced the bulky/heavy cable with a spare iem cable (JH16). It's much lighter and convenient. I use my DT250 as an alternate to my Roxanne for mobile use. Not bulky for an over-the ear phone. Light and very comfortable. Isolation is excellent.

q701 has a boosted upper region and of course a wider soundstage

dt250 lets you hear what's going on in the song while q701 overwhelms with it's upper region and masks everything else

dt250 sounds a bit like my modded t50rp in that it lets you hear everything without boosting anything

6 hours of listening: very nice. can hear some FR inconsistencies between the drivers while listening to a frequency sweep though.

 

They sound pleasant, flat. Bass is really good. Just ordered some silverstone damping foam, will try to mod these a bit cause I can feel the pad rumble on Jen Chapin - You Haven't Done Nothin'

Did you use the longer replacement plug? Any problems with microphonics?

That's the 3.5mm (1/8") shorter plug.

post #671 of 716
Were you able to buy this plug, or did you cannibalize the stock cable?
post #672 of 716

it's the longer stock cable supplied by JHAudio.

Hello. I have a question: Is DT250 very bass-shy? I don't own a dt250 but a dt294 headset 80 Ohm (I found cheap used one) on which I took off the microphone. But for my findings they are way too bass shy. After adding 10 dB of bass amplification in rockbox they have still weaker bass than a HD650 or Creative Aurvana Live! .
Does the dt294 differ from the regular dt250 or am I maybe biased because I had a dt770 & dt1350 before that have strong bass. I'm asking because I consider getting a dt250-250 if it has mor bass than my dt294. Thanks

The DT294 is the same as the DT250, except that it has the DM290 microphone. So soundwise they are identical.

 

But there is always the 80 ohm v. 250 ohm question. I only have the 80 ohm version, so I'm not shure if the 250 ohm version will give you more bass. But I'm pretty sure it will not have bass like neither the DT770 nor the DT1350.

BTW it is not the DM290 mic, but a condenser type. My mistake. :normal_smile :
