High end upgrade from Beyer DT770 80 ohms??

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm pretty sensitive to treble peaks and would much prefer a darker open headphone with bass flat to 20hz.
90% of my music is Electronic (which can get harsh on alot of cans).
Are something like the LCD2s my best bet? Will they have enough bass coming from the DT770s?

I would go with the HE-500 instead of the LCD-2.  They tend to be more consistent with the sound signature and they are a tad smoother with most music.  They are cheaper as well.

Based on reviews and the freq response there is a sharp treble peak on the Hifiman headphones that really looks scary. The distortion on the HE-500 doesn't really seem upto par when compared to the LCD or HE-6. The bass also seems to roll off a bit compared to the Audeze.

I auditioned both side by side and the HE-500 won out unless being compared to the most recent LCD-2 and LCD-3 products.  Because of the drivers issues in the LCD-2 / LCD-3 products I hesitate to recommend them to anyone.  There are a few types out there that for the price sound horrible compared to the "fixed" versions.  Hopefully the issues go away completely, but the HE-500 is still an awesome sounding headphone.

I was under the impression that the issues had gone away.

How about the Lawton Audio LA-D7000?

What DAC and head amp. are the headphones going to be plugged into?

These will be fed by the ODAC and O2Amp therefore ruling the he-6 out.

Yes they are your best bet for what you want. (JMO)The driver issues are gone on the new models.
