Just looking into that eBay deal you spoke of... I have been spellbound by your writing!
Is it still available?
Actually I just grabbed the new WS99's from AT and couldn't be happier. They have basically everything I wanted in a closed can. Comfy no clamp look great have amazing clarity and detail but are major slappers in the bass department. Super fast super aggressive bass but always in line and never trying to hard like the COP's and a lot easier to run and more neutral than the DT770's.
I love em and may start to invest in other AT products if this is how their higher end stuff is.
Thanks for the read.
Ummm this review is really weird.
You do know COP has 4 settings?
Settings 1/2 and even 3 do not have a recessed midrange, I don't know what you are talking about. 770 has more recessed mids.
Settings 2 and 3 have tight punchy accurate lows.
Really inaccurate review.
Well seeing that this was my impression of the COP I clearly understand why you don't understand it. My thoughts and opinions are exactly that. My own
The COP's that I had which were one of the first batches to be released were not very good. The bass was sloppy at slot 4 and not very good in slots 1-3. Felt weak and held back quite a bit. Clarity was nice along with the detail and soundstage which are obvious Beyer traits but the bass was a mess. It bottomed out very easily and was muddy and slow. The DT770's do have recessed mids (everyone knows this) but the overall layout of the sound is miles ahead of the COP's IMO again I say IMO.
Listen, tons of people think that Beats by Dre are the greatest headphones the world has ever produced and you know what, to them they are right! We all are entitled to out opinions and mine is that the COP's have the right idea but the wrong sound. If you like them and think they sound better that's awesome!! You have a great looking flexible CAN that suites your needs. Cheers. But that won't be the same for everyone just like my thoughts will not be the same for everyone either. It is what it is.
Thanks for the read tho.
Hey, I really appreciate your review and comparisons of both of these headset. Because I am currently searching for a higher quality headset for music, gaming, and movies, and I wanted to ask if your prefer these to the DT990s and or DT880s? I know you said you had the open back 990s and that is what I am on the fence with was this pair, the 250 ohm 990 pros, the Audio Technica m50 or a9000x, and the COP. From reading many reviews I have cut it down between the 770, 880, 990s I believe. I do not know if I prefer open or closed back and that is part of the problem the ones I have had to date have been close and I am fine with them. I just wanted to your opinion on this if you could help I would really appreciate it. I am less experienced with audio peripherals that I would like to be.
I know this is an old thread.
But it's interesting how you say that the highs are brighter on the COP than the DT770.
Looking at measurements from Innerfidelity, goldenears.net and headphone.com that's definitely not the case.
I would have liked to try out the DT770 for the comfort and bass, but the highs put me off. So I was hoping the COP had less hehe..
