I'd like both ideally, but I'd prefer something pretty-looking, even if I could make one myself for 1/10th the cost... lol.

 

I ended up running the preamp out into my E17, turning the volume to 28 on my E17 with 0 gain and no EQ, and I can use the volume knob on the Lyr much more. I realize I'm double amping here but I think it doesn't sound half bad. Do I risk hurting my E17 with this? Anything I should be aware of?

 

Good god... these sound awesome! For their price, they're very attractive and sound fantastic. A very, very nice changeup from my HD650s. More comfortable as well. SO HAPPY!!!

 

Also, I don't find the mids to be terribly recessed! Compared to the DT880 they're almost perfect, given the sound signature of these. The DT880 definitely let the mids take a back seat. Seriously though, these are awesome.

Hi, this is my first post on this forum :)
I've been thinking for a while if i'm going to buy the COPs.

Atm I'm using Sennheiser px 100ii for portable use and Denon ahd1100 at home. But I want a headphone that is as good as my Denons and looks cool like my Sennheiser. Since I already know that the COPs looks great...

 

-How do they compare to Denon ahd1100 comfortability and sound quality wise?

post #543 of 960

I've had these for about an hour and I can already tell you they're VERY comfortable. Not quite as much as the DT880s I had, but they're less clampy than my HD650s for sure which can definitely feel a bit suffocating at times, despite the velour earpads. I have some DT990 earpads I bought for my HE400s but they muted the sound a bit. I might try putting them on my COP soon but honestly, the pleather earpads are very comfortable. The earcups are also big enough to fit my ears in them, which the Sennheiser Momentums weren't. Those shouldn't have even been called circumaural, they were so small.

 

Oh, and welcome to the worst (and best) addiction you'll ever have!

Those cans are extremely interesting and i love the look of them.

 

I can't wait for the release of the other 2 cans of the series.

post #545 of 960

Did they say there would be 2 more, specifically? Was there any info given about them? If they made a Tesla COP... I'd buy it. As long as it looked as sexy, if not sexier, than the current COP.

 

Ahh who am I kidding, I'd buy it no matter what!

post #546 of 960

hey yokken,

 

beyerdynamic official says on facebook, 

that they are discussing about further models of Custom series though, 

they haven't decided anything yet.

So your opinion will take effects, let them know what you want!

 

And they promised white version of Custom One Pro will be released in 2013.

F.Y.I

 

Cheers

Who knew? tongue.gif I'll be interested to see what they have up their sleeve. I'm impressed with the COP so far. EQs nicely. I hear a bit of a buzz in the right earcup if it gets nice and loud (amping only through E17, not Lyr) so is it possible there's something on the driver, brand new from the factory? Bass seems to cause it. By the way the bass on these is just awesome on the 3rd switch.

Sounds nice.

 

I love how Beyer is going to the completely right direction.

Unlike Beats those do have a nice sound for the price. The look is great. The customization is an epic idea and they should enhance it.

 

You can also just open like 2,5 3,5 of the switch and change the sound even more accurately.

I'm wondering, though, is the buzzing I hear in the right ear from something touching the driver, or is it clipping? It's hard to describe. It only happens a little bit which makes me want to think it's just clipping, but it doesn't seem that much over the top... I certainly don't think I've over-EQ'd any of my headphones before to make them clip. I'll have to observe more carefully.

You should exchange them.

Hey guys,

 

From what I know, there are two more full size Custom products on the way, of which the details have not been said. So All I know is that there are two more on the way.

hopefully dt880 and 990 with custom vents. Genius idea

post #554 of 960

I was looking into purchasing a pair of these, the customization is awesome and when I want bass I don't have to throw on my Q40's

post #555 of 960

Well I put my DT990 pads on here just for giggles and they did exactly what someone else said they would: the bass is very reduced, but there is some nice clarity. Unfortunately it's not quite sparkly like the DT880s so I'm left with a slightly dry (but still good) sounding headphone. Gotta love the comfort of the velours though.
