Not to detract from the conversation, but would you guys recommend these or the KRK KNS 8400? These are for a friend who likes his upbeat, in your face metal and rock. He also will be using it for casual gaming.

Hey,

 

Well, uh... *turns and walks away quickly*

 

Getting demo pairs is a good way to be sure if you like the headphone first. I don't intend on buying them, but they sound so good that I can't resist!

Rather often, I got an E11 simple to compare it to the cMoy BB, which I only really did on the Bass Head Forum... I've yet to write a really labor entesive review. I tried with the cMoy bb but psh there was no one even viewing it so I quit... plus the cMoy didn't impress me enough to make me dedicate teh 6-7 hours I'd need to fully test and document it enough so that I could write and Enitrely extensive reviwe.

 

The Dt 880's did although I'm still to lazy <3

As you can see, they both have pretty much the same form factor and relatively the same size earcups.  I felt the DT770 had slightly more padding, but it also could have been the feel of the velour vs the plethor.  

 

Both sound great, but each has their own strengths.  The DT770 can be driven off portable devices, but it does sound weak compared to the Custom One Pro.  So if you are going to primarily drive off of a smartphone, I would consider the Custom One Pro.  The bass selector does work well, although I wonder how much could be mimicked by playing with the EQ from your sound source.

 

For me though, I was primarily driving my headphones through an audio receiver and from an amplifier off of my Xonar DGX sound card on my computer.  To me, the DT770 when properly amplified had much more presence than the Custom One Pro.  The mids sounded less recessed while still providing as much bass as the Custom One Pro even at the fourth slider setting.  The DT770 Pro 80 is definitely bass heavy, but it did not seem to overpower the mids like the Custom One Pro.

 

I also use the headphones for gaming and found the DT770 provided a wider soundstage (IMO) than the Custom One Pro, making it better suited for virtual surround using Dolby Headphone output.

 

While I liked the Custom One Pro, I am going to return it and keep the DT770 Pro 80.  I like the sound better and love the feel of the velour pads over the plethor.   Also the DT770 Pro 80 is cheaper which doesn't hurt.  Guitar Center sells normally for $170, but with coupons frequently circulating, you can get it as low as $150.  

 

Don't feel bad, I did the same thing and I wrote a little comparison too. Its nothing special but I think I did an ok good if I say so myself :) 

 

Check it out!

Yea that fellow u quoted had a nice review there him self! I'm debating on getting the COP or not, but in all honesty when you want a BASS heavy can, you want recessed mids which the COP does, and that ofc follows the assumption that your going to be primarly Driving bass heavy music on them!

 

My consideration for the COP is for mah Dub Step, which the more I listen to my Dt 880 the less I like how narrow Closed Cans sound... But I think for SUB BASS OWNAGE, it's gatta be closed or it won't stand for sub bass [although the LCD2 has nice sub still that's 1000 xD]

 

SO I may end up getting the COP and seeing how it stacks up agains't my XB700 and Future Xb1000 and Dt1350's [which have a nice flat Line Sub bass Response]

Thanks.  Nice review you did.  You obviously spent a lot more time on your review than I did, but I think you came out the same.  I really liked the COP, but ultimately I felt the DT770 was a superior headphone at least for my applications.  Kudos to Beyerdynamic for both.  I tried several different manufacturers, including a number of the top choices on this website, but found the Beyers were the best for me.

Hi,

 

The Magnolia by me has a pair of T1 and HD800's out on display. They also have some K550's, K701's, and some other Audio Technica headphones. They have a whole wall dedicated to Audioquest stuff as well.

I doubt they will sound very good in that noisy environment.
