hahahaha whats with all the bumping. All the stuff you listed isn't going to touch the dt250-250 ohm version. I am not the usual headfi young person though, I am more into natural sound so there you go. Just do it . Buy a dt250-250 and a minimal amp to make it sing like a JDS labs O2 then you will never find a better headphone for a very long time. Ignore the other guys with their crappy recommendations because I've heard most of them and they are practically all different versions of crap.

whats so good about the DT250's? why are they cheaper then the 880s

post #198 of 270

LOL I was just laughing at my exaggerated post there but yah I truly believe there is nothing in that range that's as good. the dt880 is not in the same pricerange by the way yet I still prefer the dt250-250 to them because the dt880 has a more consumer oriented sound while the dt250 is more accurate, have more natural sounding mids, less bright highs, just more balanced overall.

 

Oh and they are cheaper than the dt880 because they don't look as nice or flashy. The dt250-250 don't look good enough to just sell based on looks alone which a lot of people get fooled by a lot of the time.

You ought to go with your gut and buy whatever you're leaning towards. You're shopping for headphones, not black market kidneys - if you don't like them, you can put them up for sale and try another option

...or just return them (to many if not most retailers).

Even if you get something you're really happy with, eventually you're going to start wondering what better options are out there - it's a lot like having a girlfriend, iDF wink_face.gif

Very true, and thats why I want something which is the best for it's price range and i'll upgrade when i have the money to do so.

Well the thing is, there's no "best" in this price range. There's a certain level of "good" you'll get up to this price range, and everything's around the same level of "good" but different flavors. You'll have to just decide for yourself. The best we can tell you is the general sound signature, but it's up to you to decide what kind of sound you like. If you want something bright and analytic (in comparison), then the DT880 is for you. Something bassy, the DT990; something pleasant, the DT250.

If you can't audition any of your options, you're going by other people's biases and preferences which is always risky. Maybe have a look at some frequency response graphs for a bit of objectivity and see if that helps. Or just draw a grid with 8 squares in your back yard and see where your dog decides to take a crap. Then you can blame your dog if you don't like them.

Don't forget that the pleasant thing is not the only thing going for them. The 80ohm version you heard is way inferior and the 250ohm version is actually more like the dt880 in detail while having mids at the same time.
