Simply put if you want to hear the true sound, DT250 gets the job done.

The DT250 is not primarily a consumer product, but a tool to allow broadcasters to do their job as well as possible. Hence it is robust, comfortable, easily serviceable and offers a neutral, accurate tonal balance. It needs a bit of power, as it's designed to work with studio equipment.

The cable connector could be improved, though. A mini-XLR would be much better!

for me the perfect closed Beyer Headphone would be: DT250 driver and sound, rest from DT770 (which i find to be the best affordable closed headphone construction-wise, not sound-wise) but with the mini-XLR plug

Yeah, the DT770 is much more comfortable. (Not that the DT250 is uncomfortable - the DT770 is just more luxurious, I suppose)

 

I think you can install the DT770 leather headband on a DT250, but I doubt you can make the ear pads fit.

So basically people like these because they lean towards the Sennheiser sound but don't like Beyers in general?

Well I find Beyers in general So-so but the dt250-250 is a homerun and the best Beyer headphone regardless of price for me :D

I think I would like it too except for the channel balance issue. I take it your one is not affected. BTW have you tried them with tubes?

that might be an over generalization, but I'd wager that those that really enjoy the other beyer flagships won't care for the DT250 sound. (or what used to be the other flagships - phones that cost more than a thousand USD are so far off my radar they don't exist)


horses for courses, though - despite its strengths, I dislike the DT250 for gaming. most game audio is mixed with the low end ridiculously hot, and I much prefer my Senn PC360s there (they're open, and cooler on my ears, too)

funny enough, the PC360 is pretty bright for a Sennheiser.

I thought I had a channel imbalance in one pair, and the seller swapped them at no cost. As I recall there was a manufacturing issue that was fixed (nearly 6 years ago)

buy from some place that specializes in audio (or hell, from Amazon) and they will take care of you.

they still sell these for studio and broadcast use - you can bet that market would raise hell if there were still massive problems.

I don't think there are many dynamic flagships over $1000, only the HD800 comes to my mind. The T1 was recently cut to $700 and the T90 went to an amazing €325 on Amazon.fr.  There are also more tube amps out there that are not too expensive and thicken out the Beyer sound. So it's worth keeping track, especially if you're looking for a decent upgrade.

Thanks, but not really looking - I like having the same sound signature at home and at work too much.
