If it helps, I found the 80 ohm to have more bass than the 250 ohm. I didn't find the 80 ohm to be bass shy though. The 250 ohm was more thin sounding.

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

DT250 is tuned to be neutral it will definitely sound less bass. Definitely less than my T1.

Thank you guys for your help!
I think that my used headphones are damaged, that they are that bass shy.
I will have to listen to the 250-250 somewhere.
A pitty that they are that unpopular, they at in no showroom of electronic sellers.

DT250 is not intended for normal consumers. It's used in broadcasting, monitoring and mastering applications. That is why they don't normally show up in a headphone retail stores

Last night, I recabled my DT250-250 with 6N OCC copper wire (braided twisted pairs), using the headphone connector from the stock cable and a Neutrik Rean 1/8" plug.

So far, the cans do sound a little faster and more open. I would say that it is a worthwhile modification.

^ nice.

I modded mine with silverstone acoustic foam. As expected: bass is now ultra tight, looks like the cup isn't vibrating anymore. Also sounds like there are less resonances across frequency spectrum. Channel imbalance stays, must be drivers.

Contrabass in Miles Davis - Kind of Blue sounds so good. Bass is really quick and tight now.

It's amusing how there are two camps, one that prefers the DT150 and the other that likes the DT250.
