    Unfortunately you can't delete it, it's there for posterity : (

    Not to worry, I made my own set of errors when I was a newbie back when, and I would bet that's true of most Head-Fiers.

    Enjoy your time here . . . oh, and 'sorry 'bout your wallet'

The Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250-Ohm, if you have a decent headphone amplifier.

Nah dt 880, dt 880 is great for ROck. The 990 might have to much treble... But both r excellent the 990 is a more fun can, the extra bass n highs u might not want

I'd have to say the DT880 is the best all rounder beyerdynamic headphone in the 770-880-990 lineup, since it's the most neutral. smily_headphones1.gif

 

I'm not the one to say since I only heard it briefly but almost everything sounded pretty good on it. Just my 2 cents.

+1

 

I own it and it does everything well. It does jazz and rock pretty awesomely!

I'll vote for Q701.

DT770-880-990 Pro and HD 598 for me. AD900 and Q701 are nice but their bass impact is quite on the weak side of all-rounder.

post #15 of 15

see another vote for dt 880! Yea I've heard the q701 is nice but again, ppl say it lacks bass. I might be a nice can to use if you had a slighty bass boosted Solid Sate or tube. U might even be able to e1 a little more bass if u wanted [but I'm not a fan of eq unless im listening to EDM]
