Which way you think will be cheaper...Priority Mail, UPS or FedEx?

 

I also mentioned "a similar case" so they'll know is not an isolated issue.
 

This is the email of the Beyerdynamic repair guy which I also emailed already: peter@beyerdynamic-usa.com

 

I saw that form but they replied to my email. I gave them my address and they're sending a UPS guy to come pick up the headphones from me. They said I'll definitely have them back before Christmas. Just gotta include the receipt. Also I think Priority might be the cheapest.

@jmsilva22 and @yokken:

 

I get hairs stuck in my DT770's a whole lot. I'm not sure what it is about the Beyer design that makes it so susceptible to getting hairs stuck next to the driver but it seems to happen a lot. The result is a rattling noise, sometimes pretty faint, and usually only on low bass notes. To verify that its not a hair, take the ear pad off and run a lint roller over the pad covering the driver. Also try to pick off/out any hairs that you can see. If that doesn't work try snapping out the cover/pad over the drivers and sucking/blowing directly on the driver to remove any hairs. If that still doesn't work, I would get them replaced. Good luck.

 

One way to distinguish between a hair rattling vs. clipping is to note whether it tends to happen only on low notes. Low frequencies move the most air and move the driver the most so rattles from hairs will always occur the most on low notes whereas I imagine clipping would occur on all frequencies.

I've got mine in a box ready for UPS to pick up tomorrow. They tried to pick it up today but I didn't have it ready yet. Back to my 650s for a while :)

 

22 hours, 41 minutes later edit: Well UPS came and got them today, left me a small sticker with the addresses on it and a tracking number. Nifty. I can track it back to Beyer in NY. Pretty smooth.

*UPDATE*

Still love these phones.

Love them more and more.

I don't know if it's because they're burning-in more or what.

I just traded my Amperiors for a set of Momentums.

Although I really like the Momentums, I just can't get enough of the COP's.

I just feel my music more with them.

Momentums are comfy as hell though, I'll probably make them my summer phones for less sweaty ears.

But yeah. COP's are my fav right now. Momentums are a close second.

Mine arrived to Beyer yesterday afternoon. Now the waiting game begins...frown.gif

UPS tracking says mine won't be there until Dec 5th. I think they'll turn it around pretty quick though.

Well as of now my honeymoon with the COP its on hold until further notice. The "clipping" issue on the right side speaker has comeback. And If I'm not mistaken somebody else in this thread is having a similar problem, so maybe there is a bad batch of these going around. A damn shame because I really like these cans.

 

Tomorrow morning they are going back to Beyerdynamic repair center.

I did a thread of my own of the COP's vs the DT770's and I had the same problem and so did at least one other member. Maybe it was a bad batch but it starting to look more and more like something is wrong vs a random incident

Sucks to hear about the clipping.. I'll be buying a dt770/250 this weekend to compare them directly with the COP biggrin.gif. I might like the COP better if the dt770 has that signature Beyer treble. Though I may choose the dt770 if the COP really can't handle amping like a few people on this forum say. Anyone here oppose keeping both? xD

I ended up sending my COP's back and keeping the 770's. Couldn't deal with the clipping or inability to handle any amping what-so-ever so I sent them back which they came! For the same price as the COP's you could always go for the DT990/250 pro's. Super Comfortable with amazing sound and cheaper than the COP's right now. Def worth a look if you don't already own

I actually had the dt990pros biggrin.gif for about two weeks until the right driver suddenly gave out on me... I would have kept them if this hadn't happened. At the moment I'm just looking for the right closed can that can isolate decently (and deliver good bass) when I don't want to bug my roommate. I may give the dt990pro another chance when I buy an open set, though I wasn't crazy about the coiled cable. The next headphone I would seriously consider is the he-400.

You'd be making the right call on that one. HE-400's are flat out amazing! Zero weaknesses and capable of handling every type of music from Dub to Classical... I will tell you though, I hope you and your roommate have the same taste in music because they have zero isolation and the sound leaks 100%!! Bass and all, it's almost like two speakers facing outward. So I'd either stay in my room or play a lot of the music they like lol wink.gif Don't worry though even that music sounds better than 90% of headphones put there so you should probably change them for part ownership lol

So I've heard, but I also don't want to buy them and have yet another revision addressing the issues in sibilance that some people have been having. I can wait a bit until they settle into one final revision.

Well, I emailed Peter @ Beyer and asked if they would exchange my faulty/clipping COPs with a DT770/80 or a DT880/250. I kinda miss my DT880... soooo we'll see what happens. I don't expect him to give me a headphone that costs about $100 more for free but it never hurts to ask. If all else fails and they still clip when I get them back, I'll see if RazorDogDeals will refund me.

OMG...

 

That's exactly what I was thinking, but then said nah they wouldnt go for that (exchange them for a DT770/80)

Aw. Well if they don't clip then I guess I don't have a problem with keeping them, since they are the headphones I bought. Still want my DT880s back though... lol
