Just keep in mind I paid $150 for them, plus the $10 it cost me to ship them to Beyer. So I'm already out $40 on this deal.

So... anyone interested in my Crossfade/T50rp transplant (not finished yet, but soon hopefully) so I can afford the COP for another future transplant? cool.gif

Well, after about 50 straight hours of burn in, I'm listening again. Second first impressions... highs seem a bit forced, still sound a bit muffled/blah compared to my DT880s and even my HD650s. The sound just isn't as premium as the others. But the bass is where these shine. It's a lot tighter than I remember, but still awesome. Skrillex was quite awesome on them. I just wish I could take the bass from these and throw it into the DT880/600. I doubt that's even technically possible, but that would be the most epic combo ever.

 

Wait, am I talking about DT990s? :P

 

 

Overall, I think they just don't sound natural... not even metallic to me, almost more plasticky. Some bass kicks sound very plasticky as well. I just can't get over how un-smooth it sounds... It just sounds like Beyer took some prototype/unrefined DT770 drivers, threw em in a new housing and called em a new headphone.

 

I think I'll let them burn in another 50 hours or so and see how they sound after that. I'm still fairly disappointed. These would be a great choice for those considering Beats, but I think I'm going to have to shell out a lot more than $150 to get closed, portable headphones that sound comparable to my DT880s/HD650s, or at least to the same pleasing degree. I think I'll be taking these off now and switching to my DT880s.

 

Now, I can't fault these for not being as good -- they're about half the price and they're made for portable applications. If I were to bring these on a plane or a long car ride, I think I'd be okay with their sound... but they really do make a lot of my music sound like crap. Vocals are just muffled/fuzzy/harsh and the highs are plasticky. The bass quality just isn't good enough to make up for all the other shortcomings. I mean, it's like asking a girl to be your girlfriend just because she's incredible at cooking, but dropped out of high school, hates dogs and watches Fox News. The cooking just can't make up for the rest!

FYI-- @GN3RAL KARL, @DemonFox, and others:

 

I have more thoughts on the PRO 750s but I don't want to get *too* off-topic here so I'll be posting in the Ultrasone fan club thread

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/569107/ultrasone-fan-club-roll-call

 

Y'all should come join in if you're not already sub'd to that thread.

Ok devhen, I will check that out when I get the chance.  I'm contemplating some Pro900's.

post #801 of 954

Well, finally getting around to auditioning my COPs after somewhere between 60 and 100 hours of burn in. They sound a lot better. But I still think the bass is quite bloated. Position 2 is just fine for almost all music, position 3 is great for some dubstep and rap. That's about it. But the sound opened up quite a bit. They're still not as detailed as I'd like, but even vocals aren't awful on them. They're definitely listenable. For an airplane or a long car ride, I think these will do nicely. I think I'm going to keep them. I won't use them very often but I think they're worth having around. They're certainly more enjoyable to listen to (comfort and sound combined) than my HD280s (with a ripped earcup) so I might as well keep 'em around. I could return them but... I already have them and I can see a purpose for them.

 

Anyone else enjoying their COPs?

Mine are sold already. beerchug.gif

 

As you probably know my experience in the end was not good at all with these. So I'm moving on and looking forward to my next over ears which is probably going to be the M100.

post #803 of 954

Good luck with them, apparently they're a tad small to be over ear. I know my Momentums were way too small to be considered circumaural.

post #804 of 954

No problem there. I have very small ears. Hopefully the price goes down a bit after the holidays. In the mean time I'm rolling with the setup below. Not bad at all man. Did the tape mod on them and they sound very good for $25.

It's weird to see an HTX7 with an amp, but they did seem to have potential the last time I heard them. Not to mention they look so good...

 

If I were you (and I'm not, just to be clear), I'd mess around with some TMA-1 or Momentum drivers in those.

If only I had the money and skills to experiment those kind of mods...

 

We need more over-ears headphones with a lightweight and compact design like the HTX7, Momentum, etc. Not everybody wants to walk around with half a helmet on their head.

I understand your view (I've owned a WeSC Maraca with Sennheiser drivers in it because I got sick of wearing my Fischers out and about at one point), but now I simply don't care. I wear my T5p, Mad Dog (which is larger than I thought it would be), and even sometimes my PS1000 out on the town.

You're crazy.

post #809 of 954

Because he took his oversized grado's out in public? I see people wearing full-sized cans outside all the time... myself included biggrin.gif

post #810 of 954

For me is not about what people think. I've always liked compact design headphones (specially when talking circumaural) because I HATE the way big headphones look on my head, specially the ones with those really awkward wide type headbands.

 

Besides the size of the headphones, I assume the thing about me that most people notice-like-dislike is that I'm wearing headphones 90% of the time.

 

I am and forever will be a music junkie. beerchug.gif
