Are they still rattles? I just think that this problem doesn't depend on them.I had this problem with my pair when I listened soundtrack from Inception. There is a track with huge bass and my pair made rattles. But it rattled even without grills!After that I totally dismantled my pair a few times and when I almost despaired, this problem disappeared.post #222 of 560111/1/12 at 1:49pm
I am powerless due to hurricane Sandy, but with what little internet time I can manage on my phone I have been enjoying your thread in-between charges.
I am still trying to methodically work my way through your reviews and impressions, but I wanted to say thanks for the work you put in to share this.post #223 of 560111/1/12 at 1:53pm
Really an epic effort to put this comparison together. Thank you so much!!
I normally hang out at AVSforum and when someone there posts a "review" or personnal comments about a new piece of equipment, they get jumped for not doing analytical testing with lots of measurement gear and posting charts, graphs, double blind test results, etc. It is a testament to the document posted that so far, not a single comment has been made criticizing some part of the review steps. Well done!!! Oh and it took 102 pages to print it out.post #224 of 560111/1/12 at 1:58pm
Grade S music choices
P.S. - I own 600ohm DT880's: Even straight from the headphone out of my computer they sound fantastic
